It's December 24th and we have a feeling many of you are feeling twisted and are in knots. The Holidays are stressful! We have had so many lovely clients stop by the store just to vent a little. Decades often serves as a place to decompress for many of you. Sit on the Phillip Johnson sofa with Knoll fabric, have a Pellegrino, and enjoy a little retail therapy. We are here for you! Well if you do feel like you are twisted and your neck is in knots, don't buy this dress! However, if you are already somewhere peaceful and relaxing (i.e., you have completed all your Christmas gift shopping and you are officially on vacation), buy this dress!
It's an Oscar de la Renta Boutique black jersey dress with a very cool halter-neck detail that twists around your neck. Very 1970s streamline chic. We've given it a bit of edge with a vintage Hermes collier de chien belt from the 1980s. The belt is sold separately and will be posted in the next few days along with a coordinating orange leather dog collar belt, too. Actually, we are currently photographing around 35 pieces of Chanel jewelry from the 1980s, too; including a stunning Gripoix necklace, many Chanel shoulder-duster earrings, runway earrings that are one-of-a-kind, and great gold gilt medallion necklaces. These will post between Christmas and New Year's Eve in our "What I really wanted for Christmas" week of posts!
Back to this Oscar dress, it has a plunge back and the waist is small, so this one is for our elite petite clients.

Oscar de la Renta Boutique black jersey twisted neck and knot halter dress, c. early 1970s. Modern size 2. Hermes belt sold separately. DRESS SOLD
