The bodice begins with a flattering scoop neckline that is lower at the back and voluminous raglan puff sleeves that reach the wrists in barrel cuffs. The dress falls to a mini length at the upper thigh in a straight hem, perfect for showcasing a pair of strappy heels or tall boots. Size estimate: Medium Size: 38 FR Measurements: Sleeves: 25 inches Bust: 36- 38 inches Waist: up to 40 inches Hips: up to 40 inches Length: 33 inches The lower scoop neckline at the back of the bodice lends a beautiful drape to the dress, the fabric falling just so in gathered pleats that bring a fullness and movement to the otherwise straight silhouette.

  • Pauline Trigère Abstract Floral Print Cotton Kimono Angel-Sleeve Dress, 1960s
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    Pauline Trigère was a prominent figure in putting American designers on the map. Like many of the acclaimed French couturiers, she was an expert at tailoring and had an eye for interesting volumes. However true-to-form of the American aesthetic, Trigère designs are known for their relative simplicity and elegance through ease. From the late 1960s, this magnificent dress is a fine example of why Trigère’s designs were so beloved in Hollywood during that period. Done in a woven cotton featuring an abstract floral print in white, chartreuse, pink, lavender, and ochre on a navy ground, this dress is a wearable work of art. The bodice begins with a high round collar and has incredible sheer kimono...

  • Missoni Pink Gold Knit Maxi Dress Cardigan Necklace Beret Set, 1970s
    By Missoni
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    Missoni is defined by its impressionist color stories and signature knit designs. The designs speak to the idea of simplicity with the value always being in the fine details. Done in a silky rayon crochet knit, this 1970s Missoni ensemble is made from gradients of dusty rose, blue-grey, pale yellow, and gold to create an overall warm, beachy feeling dress set. The cardigan drapes from a rounded neckline into elbow length sleeves. The undulating drape compliments the wave-like ribs in the fabric. A rather boxy silhouette, the softness of the drape and the movement of the colors give it a lighter feel. Underneath, the dress showcases a more textured, horizontal knit design that adds dimension and movement to the ensemble. The dress hugs the figure from the torso through the hips and from a dropped waistline falls into a straight maxi skirt. The fun doesn’t stop there. This ensemble also features a matching beret done in the same wavy knit style as the dress bodice and necklace made from a rope of the fabric threaded through circular carnelian beads. A picturesque sunset wrapped neatly in a matching ensemble...
