♥ DESCRIPTION: A really STUNNING rare to find, vintage inspired, grey, heavily bead embellished short mini dress from Topshop ~ (this could be worn as a longer length top if you choose ~ please ask for any measurements you need to be sure of fit) ~ featuring a slinky grey viscose slip dress with spaghetti straps which you wear under the beaded dress ~ (you can wear your own underdress/slip if you choose). The top dress is a sheer grey very fine mesh outer dress with a rounded v-neckline framed in rows of clear beading, which continue around the arm holes, the sides & bottom hem of the dress ~ leaf shaped cut out detailing on either side beneath the neckline framed in clear beading ~ between the cut-out detail, the beads are intricately clustered into a very art deco floral pattern with diamante detailing in the centre, which flows out to the sides beneath the cut out detail ~ this floral beaded pattern is repeated around the bottom of the dress with art deco beaded rays stretching up to the waist ~ & a beautifully elegant curved bottom hem, which rises up at the sides for ease of movement. ~
~ The back is just stunning also, with the sheer grey mesh at the top, revealing the shoulders & the little slip dress underneath ~ further down, the dress is embellished with the ray pattern in clear beading down to the bottom hem ...DIVINE!!!~ A VERY SEXY LITTLE DRESS INDEED!
This dress is absolutely beautiful! The relaxed, bias cut shape & intricate art deco inspired clear beading are so reminiscent of the 1920s flapper dresses! ~ with the sheer fine netted fabric revealing just the right amount of skin, with the little slinky slip dress beneath! ~ Perfect for special occasions, weddings or just to add a touch of glamour to your evenings out! It's just such an incredibly sexy & flattering style & fit.
Look gorgeous worn with opaque tights & high heels ~ or, as it is a short mini dress, you might like to wear leggings, although i do know many who wear it just with bare legs and killer heels!!! or can be worn even as a long top if you choose, over skinny jeans, denim shorts or leggings for a more ready-to-wear, sexy day time look ~ so incredibly versatile and just so beautiful!!!
Lovely fabrics ~ 100% Polyester, creating a very fine, light, sheer netting & beautiful clear bead and diamonte embellishments all over, which add quite a bit of weight to this dress, making it look & hang so beautifully!!! ~ With a 100% slinky grey Viscose slip dress for underneath...
~ 1920s FASHION REVIVAL & 30s NOIR ~ Flapper girls & Noir vamps...
There are key eras of the 20th Century whose fashion we look back on and romanticize ~ the roaring twenties is undeniably one of them; and thanks to the hit TV shows and the period drama films we've been seeing recently, fashion of the 20s and 30s is having a huge revival, and we couldn't be any happier.
The social changes of the 20s/30s era brought about the emergence of the sexy, frivolous, radical flapper girl, who flouted all the rules and conventions which had previously limited her ~ and film noir, influenced greatly by the heavy shadows of the 20’s German Expressionism movement, also had a dramatic influence on fashion. Respectively, though often tending towards the flapper in its softer femininity, a darker, more mysterious character was born...she oozed sex appeal, but she left you with the unsettling, yet alluring feeling of not knowing whether to kiss her and touch her, or run from her. Against the glittering silvers, whites, pastels and nudes of the flapper tide, the noir woman, known also as the 20s/30s vamp, wore black, velvets, silks, edged in lace and beads, a perfect symphony of subtle sexiness & iron clad mystery...
With so many styles to choose from ~ from the flirty fun-loving Bright Young Things who were the flapper girls, to the darker, mysterious edge of the noir vamp or the intoxicating damsel of the femme fatale ~ the 20s flapper and 30s Noir are fashion styles gaining as much enthusiasm and momentum this season as those women of the roaring twenties and delicious thirties notoriously lived their lives. ~
PLEASE ASK FOR ANY MEASUREMENTS YOU NEED TO BE SURE OF FIT.
THIS DRESS/TOP DOES HAVE A BIT OF NATURAL STRETCH ~ MIGHT FIT SMALLER AND LARGER SIZES ALSO DUE TO STYLE AND DEPENDING ON WHAT LOOK YOU'RE AFTER, SLIGHTLY TIGHTER OR LOOSER...xxx

US 2 ~ (Might also fit US 0 or possibly 4/6 due to style, please ask for any measurements you might need).
Some items do not carry a full range of international sizes in the label so i use an internet international size conversion site to translate UK sizes into EURO and US sizes ~ the site has proved very accurate, however if you are unsure please check sizes for yourself.

LASTLY, IN TWO WORDS........INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL! xxx
