This is a great piece from a quantity of glamourous clothing I found at an estate sale for a woman who had been both an avid collector and entrepreneur with shops in the southwest. Most of the clothing had been stored for some time; just about everything survived well.
Doesn't this set remind you of Dynasty? The great shoulder line, the slim short skirt, the glitz? Can't you see Joan Collins making an entrance in this outfit?
The two pieces go together very well; it wasn't until I started taking pictures of the labels that I found they are from 2 separate lines! A J Bari and Cache (with a Neiman Marcus label as well). Quite a pedigree! It must have been one of those rare instances where the pieces melded!
The dress is striking on its own...the gold lame covers the strapless lined bodice (it's boned for stability) and finishes on the diagonal with a pleated drape from right to left upwards to emphasize the bust. The skirt is a wonderful black velvet cut straight with a slit in the back. It's A J Bari with the Neiman's label.
The jacket is totally wonderful! It's done by Cache and a size 6. Repeating the black velvet, it makes a statement with black/gold brocade across the shoulders (oh, yes! there are shoulder pads!!) and down the front. Piped in the gold to emphasize the style, it outlines not only the lame but a wonderful teardrop-shaped open back and (ta-da!) a wonderful ruffled peplum in 2 layers! As if that weren't enough, a wonderful rolled "rose" done in the velvet and back with the gold lame closes the waist! It is entirely lined in black satin. This is a perfect example of "over the top" is wonderful!
The dress measures 33" through the bustline lying flat, 13" waist, 16" top of hipline, and 34-1/2" in length (measuring on the side seam). The jacket measures 18" through the bustline, 14-1/2" waist and 24" shoulder to hip.
If there is a bit of the spectacular in you (move over, Joan!), then this outfit is destined to make your entrance definitely spotlight-worthy!
