1970s Rare Lee Bender Wet Look Maxi Dress

This is amazing! The "wet or leather look" was what the bad ass rock girls where wearing during this time period and this is one of the best examples I have ever see. The fabric looks like slick glossy ink poured over the body and clings to every curve leaving little to the imagination. Skinny long sleeves with dramatic cuffs and a long A-line skirt. The exaggerated and pointed collar is killer! No flaws and looks unworn.
