What I've Always Wanted...

but didn't know I did.



It is champagne-colored silk organza covered with a mix of faux pearls, rhinestones, and silver beads. It is lined in matching silk organza and closes with a separating zipper. However, I would probably wear it as a dress. And believe it or not, it would actually fit me, something I rarely see when I look at vintage nowadays.

Beaded silk organza evening coat, late 1950s, $1,250.

Very elegant, but uncomfortable to sit in, I fear.
