Deadstock designer blue 1980’s gown by Alyce Designs

Combining 1980’s  love for asymmetry and royal blue, this deadstock gown by Alyce Designs is in a timeless empire cut with a sheer, diaphanous overlay of what could be called “raining roses”.   The flower motif adds tons of visual interest and glitz for the gown’s intended purpose as formalwear.  As with many of the “true” hues, royal blue looks good with several skin tones and hair colors.    Most of all, this is a unique piece and has never been owned before!  Click here for more views and sizing information.

 

1980’s red “Sauci California” women’s top

Although this top is from the 1980’s, it has a very historical feel to it around the shoulder area.  Made by Sauci, this bright red crop-length piece has unusual padded detailing to the shoulders, reminding historical costume fans of Renaissance design elements.  The rest of the top is all eighties:  Bright color, youthful cut, scoop neck. Contrasting black piping at the neck and for the whip-stitching on the shoulders gives it some extra oomph.  Click here for more views and details!
