This exquisite vintage cocktail dress, sourced from the United States, is a true embodiment of elegance and glamour. Adorned with meticulous craftsmanship, it features hundreds of horizontal sequins juxtaposed with thousands of bead leaves, each delicately edged in enchanting arora borealis sequins.

The bodice of this dress has a relaxed loose 80s silhouette, it  gracefully drops at the waist, tracing the contours of the body beautifully and providing the perfect canvas for a stylish belt. A discreet zipper at the back ensures a seamless fit, while subtle shoulder pads add a touch of structure and poise.
