1970's Black sparkle maxi

Today I'm posting a fun black sparkle maxi dress from the 1970's.  It's a floor length sheer dress that has tiny metallic embroidery dots all over it.  The dots look like little rhinestones, but are really much more subtle.  The top section has a ruffled collar layer that hangs over the sleeves with a second ruffled layer that is positioned to create flutter arm holes.  When I saw this dress I thought it was a more modern Studio 54 look.  Because the skirt is so sheer, it could either be paired with a black mini skirt or a little black dress to act as a slip.  It could be a very glamorous look!  Check it out in the shop
