Posh Girl Vintage

1950's Ivory Silk Marilyn Tea Length Evening or Wedding Dress

This is an unbelievably beautiful vintage party dress from the 1950's in a classic halter style. This would also make the most precious wedding dress! The fabric is pure luxury in the highest quality ivory silk with a VERY pale & subtle darker beige or maybe slight gray (see photo) floral design with silk thin piping. Our favorite part is the bow on the back of the neck. This is so Marilyn Monroe we can hardly stand it. You wont find another one of these dresses any where any time soon or even later. That is how rare and wonderful this dress is. Metal zipper in back, designer couture quality, full tea length skirt. It's way too big for our US modern womens size 3/4 mannequin, you can see a few wrinkles in the photos because of it. THIS DRESS IS RETURNABLE FOR CASH REFUND IF YOU DO NOT LIKE IT! Contact us for details.

The leaf designs are outlined by a silk "rope" like detail, at the very bottom in front a few of them are slightly darker, this is just from age...NO STAINS. Please see up close pics.
