Green & Silver Embroidered Reproduction 1920s Flapper Dress

by Ashanti Date Added: Thursday 24 January, 2013
Ladies, this dress is a must have for your closet!

Over the past few weeks I've worn this a few times to varied events from NYE to Inauguration events and I submit to you my review:

Unboxing: The beading will immediately take your breath away. The craftsmanship is superb and the intricate beading details is impeccable. I was unsure if I would like the color and as another reviewer noted the color is more saturated than it appears. Depending on the lighting the tone can as it does on the model or a bit deeper. Anyhow I took a chance on it and have no regrets.

Sizing: I ordered an XS and it does run a little big. The dress is supposed to fall off your body for that boyish look of the 20's so don't worry too much.

Public Service Announcement: "Rayon rides up, Satin stays down." The first time I wore this out with a beige rayon slip. A big mistake that wasn't totally realized until I saw the photos... (I purchased the long champagne colored slip.)

Styling: With Josephine Baker as my style muse I got my hair finger-waved, accessorized with a cocktail ring, bangles, and T-strap ballroom shoes the color of the deep red inlay in the beadwork.

Overall: Exquisite! In this dress you, dear reader, will "SHUT.IT.DOWN."

Thank You Unique-Vintage!
