1970's Black sequin dress

VintageRachel ChurchComment

Va-va-voom!  Today's dress is a 1970's fully sequined black evening dress.  It's super glamorous and has a classic fitted silhouette that's very flattering.  It has thin spaghetti straps and a metal zipper on the left side.  Because the top is slightly daring, it's nice that the skirt is a little long and has more of a modest pencil skirt look.  It's pretty obvious that this dress has enough sparkle to it, so the only accessories needed are heels, a simple clutch, a fun lip color, and a sleek hairdo. Too much jewelry might be overkill with this one!  Check it out today in the shop

1970's Black sequin dress

I picked up this dress on one of my recent shopping trips.  It's an amazing 1970's black evening dress that's covered in shiny black sequins.  It has a simple shape and falls between the mid calf and ankle area.  There are small pleats at the front and back of the waist and a side seam zipper.  There is a simple scoop neckline and loose fitting, low cut sleeves.  I really like that the length is something different from usual!  It will stand out because it's not too long or short.  And let's be honest...the sequins are pretty darn cool too.  I've always had a thing for sequins done well.  It would be a stunning black tie event dress or even a gorgeous piece to wear to a fancy wedding.  Check it out in the Etsy shop today!
