A captivating cocktail dress with undeniable charm. Modeled after a 1940s wiggle dress, this '80s reinterpretation will certainly deliver an impression.

Boasting a timeless, classically silhouetted cut that flatters in all the right places; its higher rounded neckline flows into a starburst of silver glittering detailing, igniting the bodice with twinkling sparks. The slightly dropped waistline leads to a wrap-style skirt, featuring a waterfall flounce on the left-hand side.

Exceptionally stretchy fabric renders the dress immensely comfortable - think formalwear with a touch of PJs - and it secures with a button and loop at the nape. The fluttery angel sleeves enhance the fetching form with exquisite movement. A sexy yet elegant ensemble!


Excellent condition, no issues or flaws of note.
