Here I have another gorgeous beaded flapper dress. This one is an overdress and needs to be worn with a slip unless you happen to be very brave! This is a stunning vintage 1920′s beaded gown which falls to calf length with almost waist high splits at either side allowing the heavily beaded skirt to sway with every movement. There are some holes, I have found three, which are to be expected given the age of the piece but they are not noticeable if worn as pictured with a black slip and personally I think that if you truly love vintage and the 1920′s in particular, what’s a few holes?

This is another dress from my favourite era which could have stepped straight off the ‘Great Gatsby’ or ‘Boardwalk empire’ sets and it would be perfect for that special party night. The dress is photographed with a black 1920′s slip which did not originally come with it but you can convo me if you need the slip.

This is an amazing dress, vintage 1980′s bestowing on the wearer the illusion of a tiny waist adorned with black embroidery. The skirt has peplum detailing just below the waist. The way the dress folds around the bust gives a lovely shape to the whole piece. The bust ripples out into classic 80′s batwing sleeves. The back of the waistline is elasticated. The colour is a fabulous shade of jade green. The condition is perfect with absolutely no damage what so over. A really unique one of a kind dress.

This was such a dream of a dress in its day, real Great Gatsby stuff but unfortunately during its long life it has suffered for love and now has quite a bit of shattering on the shoulders and a patch in the front where the buckle was attached so now it is really a study piece. But what a study piece, the amazing beading is in perfect condition on the skirt and I have seen another website where someone turned a dress like this into a skirt which is certainly possible if someone had the skills. The diamanté buckle comes with the dress but is no longer attached, I guess the weight of it was shredding the delicate chiffon of the gown. Even if you only want to hang it somewhere for inspiration, this is truly an incredible dress and the ghosts of more than one long and elegant party night hang around its beaded hemline!
