One of the things I love about vintage dresses is the amount of work that goes into the details. Case in point, this little black dress by David Marcus from 1951. A lot of effort went into getting that collar just right so it frames the face and neck in such a beguiling manner. The sleeve is not just a straight thing that hangs there. It is cut with a slight bell shape and gathered into a cuff at the elbow. The details are interesting enough that just a simple pair of earrings are all you need.
