Elizabeth Arden not only created a beauty empire but she also created a fashion empire. The famous Red Door Salons sold some wonderful American high fashion. I always love to see a dress with Elizabeth Arden provenance and this jersey tank dress with chiffon caftan floral printed overlay has that prized label. Although we photographed the two pieces as one look, the bottom jersey tank dress has tiny floral applique which insure that the dress doesn't require the overlay and is pretty fabulous on its own. When adding the overlay, the piece takes an Endora from "Bewitched" vibe which I don't object to at all. I am sure many a fashion designer is inspired by Agnes Moorehead as Endora, so why shouldn't you?

Elizabeth Arden black jersey tank dress with chiffon caftan, c. 1970s. Tank dress modern 2 to 6. SOLD
