Incredible 1960s lurex dress catches the light like nothing else. Perfect for VLV, it is styled with curves to kill. The piece is banded with woven brocade between rows of long lamé eyelashes. Glistening, glossy black is one of the most fascinating textiles I've seen. You don't need much else when your body is swathed in fabric like this, but some really killer heels wouldn't hurt. It closes up the back with a long metal zipper.
The bust is quite structured with deep darts. Measured flat, the dress is 34.5' at the bust, but that just doesn't account for the room it actually has at front reflected below.
Bust: 35" - snug 36"

This piece is clean and ready to wear. The eyelash lamé is a little worn at the back underarm/shoulder, as they turn upward where the fabric is folded in - in fact, the previous owner trimmed it away on the rear right. I find no other issues to note!
