Black in Style | Vintage 1980s elegant semi-formal Dinner chic button-down Tanner Swing skirt Dress

The story:

If you're looking for something black, elegant, semi-formal but unique. This could be it. 

A truly vintage 1980s silhouette dress complete with puff sleeves (which you could soften by removing the small bits of stiff tulle at the sleeves which gives it the puffy shape) and such a lovely waist-line. The multiple-darts at the waist gives it such a lovely shape, coupled with the full flare swing skirt, it has such a lovely lilt. 

The skirt part is AMAZING - no side seams at all and it buttons down all the way from top to bottom too! 

Would be great with heeled pumps and a tiny sling bag. 

Pinned?: 

No. But it was belted to show how it looks when worn with one.
