This top is simply stunning, a hand beaded piece fom the 1960S, the workmanship is incredible all beads and sequins having been applied by hand and handstitched on.
It closes with a metal zip at the back which runs the full length of the back and a hook and eye closure to secure it further.
It is as wearable today as it was in the 1960s and would look fabulous with a pair of jeans and heels , a bit of understated glamour for a night out. Or for a more high octane look why not pair it with a pencil skirt and killer heels.
