Sustainable Sunday: 1980s Yves Saint Laurent Micro Mini

Can you look at this sequence work that covers every square inch of this dress. It is absolutely stunning!!! This is a dress you wear when you want to get noticed, when you want to highlight your legs and have a fun night.

The dress you wear when you want to showcase your legs!

I love the slightly scooped neckline and how the shoulders are lightly padded for some structure. It’s the little details that just enhance the dress even more, not just putting the focus on the material, its really want made Yves Saint Laurent a great designer, he know how to make dresses for women.

Ever so slightly padded shoulders for some structure to a glamorous piece.

This can also be worn as a tunic and paired with tights, a slim fitting skirt or skinny cigarette pants. I’d keep the bottom half of your silhoutte close to the body and with minimal textures but I’d pair with fun patterns or bold colors if you fancy.

Look at the sequence craftsmanship detail. That is a lot of work.

It’s a slip on style dress so no zipper or closure of any kind and its fully lined in black silk. Just look at the detail on the sleeves and hem and around the collar; it’s meant to look like a knitted sweater but mimicked with beadwork. That is some serious skill and for a dress made some 40 years ago in really excellent condition.
