    Unit price per 
Tax included.

This 80s frock features several design elements from the 1950s, such as the subtly embossed geometric square pattern, and the 8 two-tone buttons designed to resemble glass and lucite combinations.

The top-quality fabric is a true peach in color and has a beautiful sheen which catches the light; the waist features a high-quality elastic waistband with a brushed cotton backing for added comfort. The dress is finished off with an elegant, feminine, rounded Alice collar, creating an ideal look for a day at the races, a garden party, or for a wedding guest.

(Belt is not included.)


Exceptional condition. No flaws. Has original belt loop but no belt. The belt shown on the model is an authentic vintage 80s stretch belt, but you could team a slim belt with this just as easily and it would look great.
