The Grand Ol' Opry

 Vintage black silk opera coat

Vintage black silk opera coat

I mean come on......It's a full length, black silk, hand beaded, opera coat.  That's just cuckoo bird!  And let's just have a chat about that collar, oh and the inverted back pleat and the BEADING!!!!   This is truly a work of art, and I cannot believe the craftsmanship that went into this piece.  If you stop to think about it, the lion's share of the beading and detail is actually on the back of the coat, how interesting, it's the fashion version of "burying the lead"  Also did I mention that it weighs a ton?  If you have any vampire friends that might need a cloak for a red carpet event, please feel free to send them my way.
