Visiting home is never a perfect trip without paying a visit to my aunt's extensive closet / designer archive full of gag worthy vintage from the 20's through the 90's. This piece specifically is a family heirloom, my great aunt wore it with the likes of Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan in the elite country music scene in the 50's-60's. She had this custom made for a show and only wore it a few times. It's absolutely gorgeous! The beading is incredible.Sequins, crystals, and mother of pearl grace the entire bust of the gown. I must say...I love hearing the history and places of travel one garment has in it's life. <3333
