Dramatic Smart Miss Vintage 50s Velvet Diamond Party Dress -
Wow. Wow. Wow. That's three wows. Even three "wows" can't emphasize how stunning this dress is! Let's make it four. WOW!
This is the créme de la créme of black party dresses. It's beautiful. It's interesting. It's sexy. It's saucy. It's fun.
The dress is from the '50s. Now, our photos have been lightened to show you the amazing black on black detail action. See the velvet insets in that huge full skirt? My, oh my. Then, the bodice (a bust enhancing affair) is inset with some velvet, too--right in the center. A satin cummerbund at the waist provides more contrast and emphasizes the fit 'n flare silhouette. The fabric combo of faille, velvet and rayon satin is wonderful. By the way, the skirt is lined in pellon to give it lots of stiffness and body. You need a little oomph to show off those big diamond shapes.
Let's just cut to the chase. This dress is a bombshell. It's at once interesting and sexy. It's made by Smart Miss. And you know what? If this fits you, you'd be very smart, Miss, to click the buy me

Very good to excellent. Pelon lined skirt shows some wear--ONLY on the inside. Also, there are a few tiny knicks in the satin cummerbund.
