1960s Black Lace Overlay Mini Dress with Bow Back, by Blanes, 37in Bust
Classic 1960s black lace mini dress made by Blanes with a Harrords label inside. Every womans' wardrobe staple is the LBD, so why not treat yourself to a quality vintage piece that no one else will have? The cut is designed to be looser on the body, and slightly fitted to the bust the create the androgynous outline well know in the decade. That also means you can wear to a dinner party without worrying about what you eat! The three quarter length sleeves are flattering but show a little racy skin through, and the round neck is delicate and demure. There are quality touches which you rarely find on a modern dress, such as the shaped lace hems, and the fact that the lining and overlay is not attached, so you can move and dance while your dress stays looking perfect. Added to that is the cute as hell little bows! So stylish, classic and sexy, and you can throw it on at a moments notice and know you will look amazing! Which is exactly what a LBD should do!
