The story:
I swear my aunt passed me her 1960s evening party gown which was the splitting image of this dress here (except longer)!

The material is an interesting almost like a shark-skin kind of sheen, in a dusky pomegranate red which is great for the upcoming festive spring festival and has such intricate beaded smocking which we just don't see on the fast-fashion of today.

We imagine this dress was made for the party animal of the day! ;)

Pinned?: No.
