1960's Peacock Feather Novelty Beaded Sequin Silk Hourglass Cocktail Dress

About

With its vivid peacock feather pattern and flawless hourglass silhouette, this "Miss Ruth" designer cocktail dress sold in Miami, Florida has the casual elegance the 1960's were known for. The fabric alone is unbelievable; sparkling beadwork hand sewn onto a gorgeous turquoise lined silk-rayon. The bodice is a tailored sleeveless silhouette with low backside. The narrowing wiggle-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. Stylish, feminine luxury will never go out of style. There is nothing quite so enduringly chic and timeless as a novelty cocktail dress for a woman whose outward exquisiteness mirrors her inner charm. Measurements Bust:39-40 inches Waist:32 inches Hips:41 inches Total Length:42 inches This vintage "Miss Ruth" designer cocktail dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal zipper. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
