$ 75.00 Sale Save

A simple and lovely vintage 1970s evening dress, spectacularly embellished! Fitted sheath with neckline that stands away from the throat a bit. Deep sideseam slits. Amazing dragon and phoenix done in small glass beads and bugle beads, along with iridescent large and small sequins, and faux pearls. I'm not sure if the two creatures are battling or wooing!
