Sequin and sensibility dress

1 in stock

This designer little black party dress was made by SCALA in the 1980's. A flapper style beaded evening dress, in true 80's fashion it has a little bit of everything, gold dangling beads and sequins, a sheer silk chiffon neckline, and shoulder pads. Truly opulent and perfect for making an entrance at a cocktail party or any event.

The dress is 100% silk with a polyester lining. In good condition, the dress is clean and has no tears or stains. The zipper has been replaced by a professional so it is ready for lots of wear. One of the dangle strands of beads around the neckline is tangled and may need to be re-beaded. Because there is so much going on in the dress, it shouldn't be very noticeable when worn. See last photo for close-up and decide for yourself. Other than that there may be a missing sequin or two but doesn't seem to be and all beads are intact. No weak seams or loose threads, etc.

All measurements are approximate and taken flat, then doubled where appropriate. Dress is tagged a size M, but please use measurements for proper fit.

Shoulder width: 16"
Chest: 32"
Waist: 30"
Hip: 34"
Length from shoulder to hem: 39"
