Classic 1950s "New Look" silhouette dress by Suzy Perette! The dress has a brilliant, full, circle skirt, fitted bodice, and sleeves that fall just above the elbow. The dress print is playful - a powder blue background of hatching lines underneath a spray of black and cornflower blue polkadots. Delightful!
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!
