1960's Pink lace cocktail dress

I'm a big fan of this 1960's pink lace dress!  It has a very sleek cut, wide set shoulders, and a v-neck collar in the front that matches the back.  The sleeves are made of unlined lace and are three-quarter length.  They show a little skin but aren't too revealing.  The scalloping details at the hem, collar, and sleeves are precious and really give a girly and sophisticated touch to the dress.  Check it out in the shop today! 


1960's Light pink lace dress

Today I'm showing you a light pink lace cocktail dress from the 1960's.  It has a sleeveless underling dress that is attached to the lace and a zipper along the back.  A really interesting design detail is the keyhole back cutout of the lace material.  It comes up from the waist and has a hook and eye closure and small satin tie at the neckline.  A pink satin bow and brooch sits at the waist to give a little pop!  I've never understood why the word brooch is spelled the way it is. To "broach" a subject and to wear a "brooch" are the correct spellings.  Ahh!  The inner spelling bee dork just came out.  Many apologies.  I digress... Check out this dress and others today in the Etsy store!
