1960's Baby-Blue Stripe Silk Sleeveless Cocktail Dress & Puff-Sleeve Swing Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An amazing and highly stylized baby-blue stripe woven silk cocktail dress ensemble dating back to the early 1960's. The silhouette is classic pin-up "femme fatale"; the skirt is deliciously lean! The bodice is an ultra chic boat-neck sculpted sleeveless. I adore the cummerbund bow which really catches the eye! The narrowing wiggle-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. The best part is the matching swing coat with its dramatic short puff-sleeves and pleated backside. Stylish, feminine luxury will never go out of style. There is nothing quite so enduringly timeless as a cocktail ensemble for a woman whose outward elegance mirrors her inner charm.
