Posh Girl Vintage

1950's Black Taffeta Strapless Evening Cocktail Dress

Here is a very special vintage little black evening dress! This cocktail party vintage dress was made in the 1950's...so classically mid century. It's strapless with the most dramatically beautiful shaped neckline... it goes out to curved points on each side of the top of the bust. The strapless bodice is boned, it has a back metal zipper, the taffeta is backed in a sheer black silk organdy fabric. We so love the big puffed out bubble hip detail. It has tulle inside of the bubble peplum to keep it's full shape. The skirt under the bubble is fitted & straight but not a super tight pencil style, true elegance. The waist is ruched with a pretty little side bow detail... it's fitted so it's a very flattering shape. It's a very high quality little black dress. Designer quality for sure!
