A little some thing full of understated style for you! From the 1970s, this dress by Elka Couture was owned by a very special lady....a mayor of a local town! The lady went to many functions and had some utter wonderful pieces in her wardrobe, this being one. Made from a lovely navy chiffon, this dress hints at the skin beneath with its soft covering of sheer fabric, while the wide stiff belt and pleated skirt anchors the design to give it some weight. The shiny satin ribbon stops this being a plain dress and adds a nice amount of texture. Now this indeed is an elegant dress that would look perfect at an event, however you could totally wear this during the day with a different belt, a leather cropped jacket and a pair of trainers. Don't resign dresses this beautiful for just parties, celebrate it every day!
