Sydney North Ivory Beaded Dress
Brand Sydney North
This product is unavailable
This sheath dress from Sydney North is one curve-hugging dazzler, with ice queen beading in shimmering silver glass beads and dangling Austrian crystals.
Dress is an ivory color and made from what feels like a rayon fabric, with dangerously cut curves, and tailored to create one heck of an hourglass silhouette.
The collar is a boat neck cut and the dress is sleeveless. The need for jewelry when wearing this stunner is debatable, as the top neckline and arm holes are literally dripping with beadwork and sparkling jewels.
The dress is also fitted through the hip, with a pencil skirt that seems to taper ever so slightly inward at the bottom hem (not *quite* a wiggle, think more a subtle a taper). The dress may seem deceptively simple in design at first glance but the tailoring and fit is divine.
The same beadwork continues on the two straps around the back. The dress is fully lined and the bottom hem falls at around the knee for most persons of average height.
