Surrealist Question Mark Button Trimmed Cocktail Dress circa 1940s
One of the best dresses Dorothea's Closet Vintage has ever had (waiting buttonless for far too long) has now been improved dramatically with some AMAZING rhinestone question mark buttons (so Schiaparelli!).
1940s black crepe rayon and texture striped rayon dress with hip pockets, stand up collar, angled sleeves. Has side zip but also buttons up bodice with swirled soft white lucite buttons featuring silvertone metal and tiny rhinestone QUESTION MARKS! Small oval black button at neck. By Cirilio, no flaws (but not orginal buttons, much MUCH better). Great black self belt has fabric discs that hook together in front picking up the button shape. Sexy silhouette to boot. Bam. Great dress, great buttons!
Measures 36" around bust, 26" around waist, 38" around hips, 17" bodice, 45" long
