Do you want to feel feminine, sexy, and appropriate? Feel like wearing a playful gown, but don't want to look like a clown? Here is an Oscar de la Renta runway sample from the 1980s that has the qualities of joy and frivolity mixed with decorum and class in a package of stunning black crinoline, lace, and netting. The magic of this dress is the fitted net and lace top with a mocha bustier that showcases a narrow and fitted carriage (and the illusion of being nude) which is a perfect counter to the multi layered crinoline skirt that begs your date to turn you around at a formal dance. Quintessentially Oscar, this dress is made for a night of dancing and celebrating. It's also made for a pair of gorgeous jeweled shoes -- maybe Roger Vivier?

Oscar de la Renta runway sample lace, net, and crinoline gown, c. 1980s. Sample size/Modern 4 SOLD
