Beautiful black and gold evening dress by Suzy Perette in that iconic 1950s "New Look" Style! The piece features an an elegant yet playful polkadot pattern of shimmering gold circles in varying sizes and opacities that reminds one of the night sky. The dress is midi length, falling at the calf, with straps and a rounded neckline. The dress has an A - line silhouette with a cinched waist accented by a diagonally placed black velvet bow. The dress has a large, full skirt featuring a black velvet panel that adds textural interest to the piece.
Suzy Perette was an American company that licensed French designs and created them stateside, usually selling them at more reasonable costs. Their most famous pieces included Christian Dior’s “New Look” silhouette, featuring a cinched waist and full skirt. Suzy Perette was crucial in introducing American women to the marvels of French fashion, and doing so at an affordable cost that allowed the wearer’s to look like chic Parisiennes without having to go on a transatlantic trip!
Dramatic and macabre skull necklace by Knight & Hammer. We adore this bold opera length necklace, with black enamel chain accented by four brilliant, polished gold skulls. Wear to the opera (and scandalize!) or over that perfect white tee with jeans (and scandalize!). A truly flexible necklace!
We're really feeling an Alexander McQueen / Damian Hirst "For the Love of God" rhinestone skull vibe from this piece.

Simply astounding evening dress ensemble by Pauline Trigere. The ensemble consists of a dramatic skirt and matching cardigan. The skirt is maxi length with an A - line silhouette and narrow waistband. The cardigan is hip length, with long sleeves and an open front. The ensemble is fabulous, with sheer black base and scalloped devore burnout velvet that shimmers beautifully. Wear with a black silk romper (or our listed silver lame Pauline Trigere romper!) topped with the cardigan tucked wrap - like into the skirt for some 70s studio 54 fabulousness!
