Lilli Diamond Lace and Lamé Bell Bottoms Set
Brand Lilli Diamond
Easily one of my favorite pieces of ALL TIME! And SHOCKER: It's a SET!
Here we have a real 70s doozy of a design from Lilli Diamond. This killer set includes a tunic / set with a matching pair of bell bottoms! Let's discuss each dreamy piece in great detail, shall we?
Let's start at the top, a sleeveless tank style tunic, with flattering boat neck collar and tailored silhouette, fitted at the bust and body-skimming through the bodice. The top is really more of a tunic in length, measuring in at an impressive 39" inches from shoulder to bottom hem. The tunic has sexy, peek-a-boo super-high slits that come up to the hip on each side. It is possible to wear this one as just a dress, should you dare!
The fabric on the tunic is a double-down of fun fabrics, with a base layer of gold lamé peeking out from under black sheer lace. The jaw-dropping bell bottoms are also made of the same fabric layering situation.
The bell bottoms are high waisted with a nylon coil zipper to zip you right in to these babies. Meant to be worn tight, these are fitted all the way down to the knee, where the leg flares out into a wondrous, wavy FULL bell, almost reminiscent of a balloon or loon pant. These have awesome movement when walking -- or better yet -- dancing.
The tunic is partially lined with a back nylon coil zipper. There is some discoloration to piece and small holes to the lace, but these are only noticeable upon close inspection.
