Black Satin Jeweled Waist Maxi Dress
Brand Mike Benet
A nod to old Hollywood, allow me to introduce this tall drink of slinky, floor-length satin, with a seductive halter cut, and shimmering prong-set rhinestones and beadwork. This is 80s does 30s glamor at it's best.
A midnight black dress of head-to-toe satin, the bejeweled waist is densely clustered with row-up-on-row of sparkling crystals and shimmering seed beads. A large medallion sits just below the bust, a cluster of more shining stones.
The dress is a simple and always sultry halter cut neckline with beading that begins at the empire and extend to just above the true waist and pinching inward just below center bust and creating the illusion of a positively teeny-tiny waist.
The back of the dress is open, with more rhinestones and beadwork for good measure.
Fit-wise, this dress is form-fitting below the bust and through the waist, but begins to float away from the body at the hip, and flares out into a floor-length trumpet skirt.
With a nylon coil zip back closure.
