1950's Lace cocktail dress

Ever need a simple, ladylike, cocktail dress for an evening event?  Well, here it is!  This lovely piece is from the 1950's and was handmade.  It is cocktail length and has a satin skirt covered in black chiffon with a nude top portion that is covered with a black floral lace.  There is a zipper that goes down the back for fit and a small slit that comes up from the back of the hem.  An interesting design detail is the double spaghetti straps. They criss-cross each other and give a little something unexpected.  This piece is so timeless and classic that it almost looks modern!  It would be perfect with some sparkly jewelry and black pumps!  Check it out in the Etsy store today!
