Posh Girl Vintage

1950's Film Noir Grey Sharkskin Dress & Jacket Suit -Small

Here is a very unusual vintage dress set with matching belt & fitted jacket from the 1950's. It has that wonderful film noir style everyone loves so much! The fabric is amazing... the color has a silver sheen to the grey sharkskin taffeta. It has a reflective silver quality to it that gives it it's name but It's in no way a gaudy metallic silver or anything like that. It's just beautiful and elegant. This is a designer wiggle style dress with matching fitted jacket. The dress hugs the body & has a fitted pencil style skirt. It has a big pleat all the way down the skirt in front & back. The jacket & belt are all matching and original to the dress. The dress has a metal side zipper, & the jacket snaps in front under the belt. They are both unlined. The only bad thing about it is it's on the small side, unless you're lucky enough to be a skinny minny that fits perfectly. It reminds us of film noir style. FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS.
