50s Cocktail Dress & Bolero Jacket Set Black Crepe & Rhinestones Wiggle Pin-Up LBD – S / M
So elegant and slenderizing is this pin-up style black vintage figure hugging cocktail dress with matching bolero jacket and rhinestone trim, circa 1950s.
The Rockabilly wiggle type ‘little black dress’ (LBD) is sleeveless and consists of a black puckered crepe fabric prong set with shiny faceted flatback rhinestones throughout, including a sewn rhinestone brooch at center which highlights the ruched bust. It also has velvet piping along the shoulders straps and neckline, a hidden metal side zipper, two belt loops (no belt), side pockets at the hips with velvet piping, and a kick pleat in back.
The matching bolero or shrug jacket has cap style sleeves with turned back cuffs that are trimmed in black velvet piping, velvet trimmed collar, an embroidered label for “A Hadley Original”, a tag for size 9, and a partial manufacturer’s tag along an inseam.
Very good condition – clean, vibrant, and with all stones intact.
