1980s Lillie Rubin Low Back Beaded Fringe Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This fun little piece is an absolute dream to wear and just begs to go out, have fun and dance the night away. It is cut to fit and hug your curves in a way that is extremely flattering and sexy. The shoulders are strong and padded (though you could easily remove the padding for a sifter look) and the back is scooped low so you get a bare expanse of skin. The elaborate fringing around the bottom hem gives it movement and a strong nod to the twenties that it is inspired by. More fringes circle each short sleeve. The surface of the black silk base of the dress is entirely covered in a dense covering of beads and sequins. The beads and sequins that cover the dress are all sewn on by hand. The colors used are bright and vibrant and I love how the fringes are all different colors that pick up the colors in the dress. It's fantastic and so amazing once on. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a silky black and closes with a back zipper. Padding in each shoulder that could easily be removed.

Wide set shoulders: 17"
Bust: 16.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 12" flat across from side seam to side seam
