Here is the perfect chic summer evening dress for those who still live a chic life in the summer. This Christian Dior New York blue pleated silk strapless and full skirted gown is centered by a pleated cream waistband accented with a dramatic yellow flower at the hip. To some, this evening dress may appear to a bit "retro." In truth it's a classic and flattering silhouette of the 1950s. Think Mad Men Season One! It's easy to modernize this dress with simple accessories and effortless hair. The magic of vintage is in making something vintage not appear too vintage! That may sound like the pot calling the kettle black, but the fashionable Decades client is well aware of how to look modern in something from the Mid Century!
