The strong-shouldered 1980s look is the trendiest thing going in fashion today. Why not have the real thing, instead of a modern copy?

Because this gorgeous dress is a wrap-around, all it takes to look drop-dead gorgeous is fastening one tiny button and tying the sash! In about three secs, you'll be ready for an important day or evening (but as oomfortable as if you had a nightgown on).

Of aqua blue silk in a graceful tone-on-tone abstract pattern, this Retro-styled dress has a figure-flattering draped bodice, tapering sleeves gathered at the tops and poofed by little pads and a fluttery flared skirt with inset pockets. It's yet another treasure we were lucky to get from a vintage clothing enthusiast who's downsizing.

In addition to the Goldwaters store label, there are tags telling us the fabric is pure silk, the dress was made in Hong Kong and the size is 4. The waist has elastic in back, so it would probably fit a 5/6, too. The waist is 26" (stretching to almost 30"), hip is about 38" and bust is about 36" -- but, with that deep V neck, you could be a little bigger. Outer sleeve length is 23" and total length from neck back to hem is about 45", which unless you're very tall would be ballerina length. The sash is 41" long and 4" wide.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
