$195.00 USD



  • Wool
  • Taffeta

This pretty party dress is in excellent vintage condition: the only flaw I can find is a few needed stitches on the seam under the right arm. Be sure to note the flattering scoop neckline and the fabulous rhinestone detail on the bodice. The shiny black swirls on the taffeta sparkle in the light. Although demure in design, the sassy swooosh made by the taffeta skirt is ever-so-attention grabbing!
