Nude & Black Lace, Stunning Dress

My mom presented this dress to me the other day and it knocked me off my feet. She had purchased it at an estate sale, and the dress just came to life when I put it on. The tailoring of the dress is just exquisite, from the kicked out skirt at the bottom of the dress to the delicate capped lace sleeves. 

Its a stunner of a dress. 

Even better my mom made this first purse pictured using a black leather vintage 1960s purse that had some exterior scratches. She added this great super soft tan leather to the exterior, added some black ric rac trim, and finished it off with that fabulous gold tone lion pin.

 My moms gifted and this bag is truly special.
