American Woman: Oscar de la Renta

Our American Woman week continues with a 1970s black velvet peasant de luxe dress from Oscar de la Renta.  I love early Oscar.  I was super excited to have found a very beautiful 1969 demi haute couture cocktail dress from Oscar de la Renta awhile back which had been photographed for Harper's Bazaar in 1969.  

The dress in a lustrous black velvet has a fitted bodice.  The full skirt of the dress is in three tiers and epitomizes Oscar de la Renta's romantic and feminine style.

The ballon sleeves are gently poufed and gathered with a tassel.

So get your haute hippie on with velvet Oscar!
