We love Halston so much at Decades that it hurts sometimes! There is something so brilliant about the simplicity of the designs and the excitement of a Halston coming alive when worn by someone fashionable. It's a lot harder to design a clean and timeless design than a dress with bells and whistles. That is the genius of Halston. No distractions from a flawed design, but rather the confidence to wear something simple, sexy, and stylish -- because you are enough.

The deep sea blue bugle bead Halston from 1981 is a classic wrap design with a large satin obi sash at the waist. It doesn't re-invent the wheel, but it does represent everything we love in a timeless dress. We wanted to share an interesting fact-oid about the Halston hand-embroidered dresses of the 70s and 1980s. They were made by the parents of designer Naeem Khan in India. As a matter of fact, Mr. Khan interned for the intimating Mr. H in the late 1970s, too. This could be the ultimate New Year's Eve dress, couldn't it? The iridescent bugle beads and sequins will light up any room. But it is ultimately you in a fabulous vintage Halston that will light up the room and make sure 2009 starts out so right.
