Victor Costa Brocade and Taffeta Party Dress Set
Brand Victor Costa
The party is where ever this dress is, with this bold fuchsia and gold brocade strapless bouffant dress and cropped jacket set by Victor Costa.
Dress is a sleeveless bustier with faux button front accented with gold and hot pink jewel buttons. The bodice of the dress is made of a hot pink and multi-color brocade, accented with gold embroidered overlay. The bottom of the bodice has the shaping of a waist-coast, or vest, in a fun nod to men's formalwear.
The skirt is the hottest pink taffeta, with plenty of structure and flare thanks to the sewn-in crinoline underneath. The skirt hem hits at just about the knee or slightly above (depending on your height).
This is actually a dress set, so included is a matching bolero jacket. The jacket is structured, with strong shoulder pads (not quite a "power shoulder" but it's definitely there, asserting it's dominance over how the jacket hangs). It's made of matching fabric to the bodice of the dress and is fully lined. No buttons of closures on this bolero, however, it is meant to be worn open to show off the bustier dress beneath and its dazzling pink buttons.
Dres is partially lined with a nylon coil back zipper closure.
