Super Sale! 1980s Oscar de la Renta Black Gathered Back Crystal Button Dress

$225 USD $575 USD

This dress has lots of those fabulous eighties elements mixed with classic Oscar touches that make it timeless. This really feels like it could be from the runways of today when we look at the handful of designers that are really delving into this look and feel. This one is of course an original eighties piece and in the best possible way. The main body of the dress is cut to hug the body like a second skin. The fabric here has been gathered from the neckline to the hem in soft drapes that meet at the inset front and back seams for added texture. Velvet straps curve over the shoulders and at the back there is matching band of velvet that runs down the center of the back. This velvet band is then accented with a series of flower shaped buttons detailed with crystal rhinestones to catch the light. At the very back hem there is a sexy little flounce of lace added for the perfect finishing touch. This one is for my smaller frames girls and is a tiny one. It would not fit my dress forms and has been photoed flat so on an actual body it will of course have more shape. Excellent condition.

Fully lined with a black silky rayon and closes with a back zipper. Hand finishes. The buttons are decorative only.
