Any astute client of Decades or follower of our Daily Arrival Blog knows that we have a disproportionate amount of small sized items within the store. It is the Decades Lament. Everyday we purchase incredible wearable vintage collectibles out of the global closets of many of society's best dressed women, but they tend to be modern zero's, two's, or four's and it isn't fair! We are a very democratic provider of distinctive vintage couture and embrace dressing women of all sizes and shapes so when this vintage Gucci silk crepe one shoulder/sleeve dress came our way that is both sexy and not child-size, we couldn't wait to share the good news with the good people out there in cyber ville. The pictures tell the story of one of our very favorite dress silhouettes jazzed up with some black jet beading on the shoulder and ready to be your dependable go-to dress for a myriad of cocktail parties, bar mitzvahs of business associate's sons, weddings of relatives you wish weren't related, and perfect for jewels you hope to inherit from your mom (with an exposed arm, feel free to pile up the bracelets of bling). This dress is not for the size zero, two, or four get plenty of options from us and hold on for the Pierre Balmain Haute Couture Lesage embroidered gowns that are coming this week. This dress is for a woman who is a size eight or ten and is sexy, confident, and ready to fill this dress to perfection.

Gucci black silk crepe one sleeve LBD with jet bead on shoulder, c. 1980s. Marked size 46, modern 8 to 10.
