Hundreds and hundreds of silver sequins give extreme sparkle to this black silk blouson style 80s Disco top. The zig zag design of the sequins provide an interesting touch as well. And, then there’s the shiny black thread that’s also sewn in a zig zag pattern among the many silver sequins giving the appearance of a fine fishnet. The black silk that is the base for all of this glitz is sheer. There are no shoulder seams but instead the sleeves are blousy and more undefined and a bit of a batwing style. There are soft wide elasticized bands at the bottom of each full sleeve. The waistband is the same type of band that fits the waist in a way that gives the blouse a nice draped effect. The bands at the cuffs and the band at the waist are totally covered with the silver sequins. There is a small round black plastic button with a black material loop at the back of the boat neckline. Despite all the shiny details on this fabulous top, it’s actually quite soft and very flexible…..not stiff and unpleasant to wear! It’s a no brainer that this 1980s blouse would look great with black slacks or a long black skirt. This vintage top exhibits total sparkle while at the same time, it’s extremely elegant.
Condition: Very Good
Although this top is Deadstock and has the original price tag still attached, with all of the zillions of sequins there’s a possibility that some may be missing, but believe me when I say, it’s impossible to determine if this is the case. This lovely top is in wonderful condition.
Label: None Present
But, original price tag is still attached as previously mentioned. The original price was $145.00.
The loose fitting style of this blouse does give some leigh way with the size. It’s not supposed to fit tightly but instead to drape. The waist does fit more snugly to create this blouson style. But, none the less, this blouse would most likely be near Size 8-10. Please refer to the Measurements given below to help to determine if this top will be your fit.
