Bright and shimmering maxi length couture dress by Nat Kaplan. The dress has a loose shift silhouette with long, wide kimono - like sleeves, and a jewel neckline. The dress features an amazing sheer fabric with an oversized blue and green floral pattern highlighted by thick gold linework.
After Nat Kaplan’s untimely death in 1956, his wife, Sylvia, took over the reins of the company while simultaneously raising their children alone. Sylvia was precise and exacting, she understood the company’s clients and knew that women demanded style, comfort, and convenience. She personally made sure that she tried on each and every dress on the design line before it was cut for production. The dress features the fun, bright colors, sheer fabrics, and expert fits Sylvia Kaplan liked to work with!
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!
