1970s Oscar De La Renta Blue Silk Print Dress

This is an amazing and quite beautiful dress by Oscar de la Renta. It is really one of my favorites that I have had. A pale, pale baby blue floral design is masterfully screened onto two types of silk. The jacket is a silk chiffon and the dress is made of a scarf weight silk that is then lined in silk chiffon. The style is very flattering - it just slips on and then you cinch on the waist with the ties that run through a loop around the waist. Pretty piping makes the straps and neckline and it all has a soft, romantic draped feel to it that is just sublime. The jacket it a pretty way to add a bit off coverage without bulk and then when you take it off the dress is all refined sexiness. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Fully lined in an off-white silk chiffon and the jacket is unlined. The dress slips on to wear and then you adjust the waist with the built in waist tie. The jacket has a piped tie at the neck and each cuff closes with a fabric covered snap. Note the sizing is a touch deceptive as its meant to drape a bit - this one will work on a smaller frame as well as what the actual measurements put it as.
