Deadlyvintage Chiffon

Classicism & the ball gown. A tulip-pink pencil gown --- narrow and dart-fitted, is topped with an asymetrical, draped chiffon swag and garnished with a shoulder of elaborate beadwork. Sparkling embellishments -- silver glass beads, pale-pink flutes, curves of pink sequins and large glass tear-drops -- form bold twists and tangles across the bust, possibly depicting grapes and vines. Tissue-chiffon drapes the body and flows to the side, allowing glimpses of the slim under-dress. Fully-lined in faille. Flowing, theatrical example of Sixties baroque, by Smart Miss.

    Vintage late-60s chiffon-gauze babydoll top -- featherweight & transparent --- the muted print shows off floral shadows & turf-colored checker-boards. Closely-spaced buttons, from neck to middy. Rounded yoke with gathered bust. Short, cuffed, puff sleeves. Wear buttoned to the neck -- for a Mia Farrow * Rosemary's Baby homage -- or unbuttoned over a pretty camisole. I would team it with a deep-scarlet leather belt & yellow pants.
