EVERDREAM - 1980s Vintage Rare Laura Ashley Dark Floral Prairie Ball Gown - Size S/M
Introducing EVERDREAM, an enchanting cotton ball gown from Laura Ashley that embodies the dreams of our youth. The strapless bodice with a sweetheart neckline is adorned with ruffles and bows, complemented by a tiered skirt featuring charming ruffle-trimmed pickups, all crafted from crisp cotton. A cotton underskirt adds volume without compromising mobility. The gown fastens with a zipper at the back, secured by a hook-and-eye closure. I am captivated by the striking combination of a formal silhouette and the unexpected use of casual cotton. To accentuate this contrast, I would pair it with sneakers or Western boots, and perhaps layer it over a fitted white tee for added flair.
