"Monochrome" Vintage 1950's Black & White Evening Dress
With the most exquisite monochrome colour combination, and pinstriped pattern, this original 1950's dress is perfect for any special occasion.
Her soft sweetheart neckline is framed by thin shoulder straps, and a turned down fabric lapel along the edges of the fitted bodice. Her cinched in waistline, accented by pointed central seam work, sets off a full flowing ballerina length pinstriped skirt.
Enjoy wearing this little lady paired with gold accessories to set off the monochrome palette.
