1970s Supermodel Length Wenjilli Metallic Black Dress

Wenjilli dresses have a bit of a cult following and if a long body hugging metallic knit dress is your thing - well once you discover this brand you are hooked forever. I know girls who have dozens of them tucked away as they are a fail safe, chic and sexy choice every time. Made of a metallic silvered black, light weight knit, this dress is made to act like a second fabulous, glittering skin (it has more of a glittering obsidian undertone that does not fully come across in the pictures - it is really amazing!). It skims over your curves and hugs you in all the right places. It is long, long, long so be prepared to wear your highest stacked heels if you are not supermodel tall! (it does shrink up a little - the knit is done on a bias so adjusts to your curves) I love the pattern worked into the knit and that loose and easy cowl collar. Those stripes of open weave that run down the front are just too sexy. A different ribbing defines the waist. Excellent condition.
