Posh Girl Vintage

1940's Marilyn Monroe Style Pink Cotton Day Dress - M

This vintage dress is so adorable & hard to find we're madly in love with it! From the 1940's, it's one of the sweetest looking vintage day dresses we've seen in a while. We love the flared fluttery sleeves & the white cotton crochet lace trim. It reminds us of Marilyn Monroe. She used to wear day dresses like this. The buttons are real mother of pearl shells shaped like flowers or stars. The shoulders have pink cotton shoulder pads. It's unlined, well made, & in a nice larger size which is very rare for dresses this old. It buttons all the way down the front. This special vintage day dress is so feminine and flattering too.

  • We have LAY-A-WAY! - See "Ordering + Lay Away" page for details.

Condition Details: Freshly hand washed. Hardly any wear. Almost mint condition. No holes or stains. We would label this near mint if it weren't for 2 very faint (almost invisible) small spots (see photo). They're just normal wear next to 2 of the buttons in front: They're not visible at all unless you get real close & try to see them. You literally have to get within inches to see them at all.
