In a word: EXQUISITE! The dress’s body has the look and feel of satin; the shoulder straps are 100% Silk. The style is quite fitted; the hem is sort of a handkerchief with the front shorter than the back, please look at the measurements, below. At the base of each shoulder strap – and on one hip – is a beautiful, vintage crystal jewel…(The straps cross in the back, see pictures.)
The color of this Vintage Jones New York Romantic Evening Dress is dark chocolate; the jewels have coppery undertones.The fabric looks like – and feels like – rich satin.
Long story short, this vintage evening dress is flirtatious, romantic and sexy.
