Posh Girl Vintage

1950's Black Silk & Lace Strapless Evening Gown

This is one of the most glamorous & gorgeous vintage evening dresses we have up right now. A beautiful classic little black dress that reminds us of Elizabeth Taylor. Just like her classic glamorous beauty, this dress is the same...a classic! She would have worn this little black evening dress from the 1950's. The strapless bodice is made of a very high quality black silk. It's boned, has side black zipper, couture quality. The skirt is made of 3 layers: a very high quality sheer lace on top, then a layer of sheer silk organdy, then on the bottom a layer of black taffeta with tulle around the bottom to help give the tea length skirt the fullness it has. Old Hollywood glamour at it's best.
