There were a lot of emails and calls and even a few BBMs on my BlackBerry for the Missoni I posted Monday. It sold so fast and disappointed quite a few friends of Decades. So I did what any vintage couture retailer should do: I hoped that another vintage Missoni caftan-style dress might come my way and fortunately this lurex floral dress in shades of grey, tangerine, and jade arrived today. The center of the dress is fitted with seams running down the side to define your body and give shape. The dramatic caftan-reminiscent sleeves are free to billow in the Moroccan breeze. The coordinating sash belt literally ties the entire look together which takes inspiration from many Eastern cultures, but adds a European flair by way of the great Missoni print and unusual lurex fabrication.

Missoni lurex floral evening dress in shades of tangerine, jade, and gray with caftan sleeves, c. 1970s. Modern 4 to 6 SOLD TO SOMEONE JET SET AND CHIC!
