I picked up this lovely silk column gown while on a serious Downton Abbey kick at my favorite vintage shop in town, Philadelphia Vintage (check out the Etsy store here!), and I couldn’t wait to wear it. Apparently it came from a Beverly Hills estate and dates back to the 1920s. I love the slim–but not tight–silhouette and the intricate hand-sewn glass beading and fringe along the shoulders and back. Absolute couture work.
It works perfectly with this ombre, acid-washy leather jacket I bought at Intermix from leather label Doma. I happen to love this combo in general–a long evening gown roughed up and made appropriate for day with the perfect little moto jacket. Not to mention, it means you can wear your most elegant formalwear more than once in a blue moon.
I just love it. I only wish I had a Becca Laws pendant to wear with it
