Truly stunning Silk dress from Lord & Taylor, a luxury department store in its day with its flagship store located in New York City. This beautiful dress has short sleeves and a metal zip front, hidden behind a placket.

The base is a very pale creamy peach with a vibrant pink floral print and it has its original belt.

The fabric quality is simply incredible, and it was clearly a treasured piece only worn for the most special of occasions!


Excellent condition.
