Laundry Black & Pink 1950s Style Halter Cocktail Dress

This Laundry by Shelli Segal dress has a 1950s style with a modern flair! Black mesh cocktail dress with feminine pink under layer and pink embroidery details. Halter style, with gathered tulle mesh neckstrap, and straight neckline. This designer cocktail dress has a fitted bodice and defined waist. On the bodice there are wide horizontal bands of pink embroidery. The skirt flairs out to a fuller, 1950s style skirt that hits just below knee with the sheer mesh layer falling a bit longer than the pink underlayer. Black tulle mesh self tie belt at the waist of this cocktail dress. Side zipper as closure. Fully lined. Stylist suggestion: With movies like The Help, and TV shows like Magic City and Mad Men, dresses like this 1950s style are coming back in style. Although this is a modern designer dress, there are so many vistage style elements in it. The tulle fabric, which was very popular in the 1950s, and has practically vanished since then (except for in wedding dresses), the gathered fabric neck strap, the fuller skirt that hits below the knee, all were essential trends of the 1950s that are back on runways.
