@Luvdisc:  

Gorgeous find!!! 🙂 Love dresses from the 1950s. I’m actually quite jealous that you got it for quite the steal of a deal. Love the bling on the dress! Cool (Searching for tea-length dresses eventually brought me to this thread)

The dress sort of looks bell-shape? Is it a floor-length with train?

I love vintage dresses, but I wasn’t having any luck with finding pre-owned dresses in good condition at decent prices. (Some antique mall vendors were asking for over $300) So, I ended up with finding a dress that mirrors the 50s amongst contemporary designs. (Oleg Cassini)

You look adorable in that dress! Although its not vintage. The common care symbols (the iron etc) were not generally used until the mid 1990’s or so!

It actually looks like a 1980s/early 1990s silhouette to me. That makes sense given the symbols on the tag and the fact that the store has only been open since the 1960s. Cute though!

@pombridelv:  Stuff from the 80/90s is still considered vintage!

@Luvdisc:  Omg! I love that dress and the sleeves.  I wore my mom’s and kept the sleeves but I do like to look of the lace ones!
