Fashion Friday with Eleanor Leftwich x The Classified Vintage!

This week I am wearing a Christian Lacroix for Jean Patou haute couture black silk satin cocktail dress from the Autumn/Winter 1985 collection. It features a ruffled, high-necked, embellished collar & embellished waist. The black silk is gathered around the hips, forming a bustle & train to the rear & leaving the dress completely backless. I love that this dress is a little sexier than my norm yet still classy. Plus, it requires minimal accessories as the dress is a masterpiece on its own!

Fashion Friday with Eleanor Leftwich x Classified Vintage!

This Pierre Balmain ensemble is dated to 1968 & features a sleeveless dress constructed from navy blue silk gazaar with ostrich feather hem & a matching coat with feather cuffs. Both pieces are labeled & have their own bolduc numbers beneath the labels. Bolduc numbers can be traced by the design house to produce the notes of the client who originally ordered the piece, with their measurements & details of the item. It’s very own couture log!
