Daily eBay – Vintage silk beaded mini dress
October 6, 2009 by Maria Kaski
Sequins, beading and all other heavenly embellishments have been a strong trend for the last few seasons. Clothes are positively dripping in all manner of shimmering, magpie-attracting elements, placing a rediscovered emphasis on meticulous attention to detail. Amiee Jones picks today’s Daily eBay.
This vintage, champagne-coloured dress is covered in masses of iridescent sequins, giving the dress a glow fit for a goddess. The neckline, hem, sleeves and back are all home to some gorgeously intricate bead work in the form of small pearly beads that are strung into various patterns.
The loose eighties shape of the dress drapes beautifully, combining generous batwing sleeves, a faux wrap neckline and a thick, empire line waistband. The oversized cut of the dress is balanced out nicely by the mini length, perfect for showing off bare legs now, or tight-enveloped pins during winter. Wear with towering platform ankle boots to bring this eighties dress right up to date.
The bid for this dress is currently £56 and the auction ends on October 8th.
