Bohème Vintage

1950s Black Short-Sleeve Cocktail Dress Medium


This 1950s cocktail dress may look simple, but it has many intricate details, which are a telltale sign of a couture piece. It has lots of movement, as the decorative balls move with the dress and the box pleats open up the skirt, adding flare and volume. If the decorations and flare of the skirt aren't enough, a quick look into the box pleats will reveal pockets! That's right, this classic dress also has pockets!

It can be worn to an office party, dinner party, or a classy night out, and its simplicity assures it will never go out of style. If you have been looking for a little black dress with a fun, decorative twist, then this piece is for you!

Prior to buying, please take your measurements or the measurements of a similar garment that fits you well. We take great care in taking all the measurements needed to ensure that it is the right size and fit for you.

When a garment is shown on a model, their measurements are listed to give an idea of how it will fit you. 

All measurements are taken when the fabric is not stretched, though we will also give the extra inches when it is stretched (for example, if a range of measurements is listed, it is because the fabric may stretch to encompass multiple sizes).
