Here’s a great find from the ’70’s – a black taffeta dress by Jessica McLintock from her Gunne Sax label. It’s got netting, beading and button & loop detail around the neck and bodice in “old West” style.
Slim sleeves, puffy shoulders and a flouncy full-circle skirt. This would make a great Halloween costume and is just a very cool dress in itself. To the knees or a little below, with a wasp waist and puff sleeves.
I’ll be going out West again soon and I’m tempted to take it; but it will be a fantastic disguise on October 31 – in my favorite color . . . . . . . . . . . .. .
