1960s Silk Organza & Gold Adele Simpson

I love the richness of the pink tones mixed with the gold threading on this Adele Simpson dress. The pink and gold on the chiffon give it a pretty feminine feel. The gold thread also gives it a slightly exotic feel as well as extra texture and visual interest. The neck is simple with a V Neck cut and the skirt is full but not overly. The skirt has an interesting pleating technique that starts just under the hips to you get a sense of flow and volume without adding bulk to the hip. Its is a good wearable size too and still retains its original belt that allows you to cinch in the waist as much as you need! It is a beautiful, dramatic piece and in excellent condition
