Beaded black lace dress, c.1918. Undiminished by time, this vintage treasure still weaves its seductive spell. The bodice and skirt front are embellished with jet-black beads and sequins, adding sparkle to the black-on-black design. The subtle refinement of the diaphanous design on the sleeves is beyond compare, while the gossamer delicacy of the floral motifs have a magical allure. Here is a dress for a woman whose very manner and style intimates the seductive sophistication of the evening.
