Betsey Johnson Black + Silver Lace Party Dress


Shipping to United States: Free

An evening like any other post-workday, Anna made a frantic commute home in hopes of making it back in time to scarf down something mildly healthy before dashing off for her 7:30 running group meetup. After what felt like a lifetime on the train, she makes her way into her building, only to be greeted by the doorman, Alan, whom openly has a crush on our gal. Handing Anna her mail while filling her in on what he had for lunch, she lunges for the elevator and exclaims "Sorry. Gotta go"! Embracing her first encounter of peace and silence since 6:00am, Anna scrolls through her mail, thinking to herself, "Geez, am I going to have to move", when she spots an envelope that stops her dead in her tracks. In a crisp, black envelope with red foil lettering reads, '15 Year Class Reunion', topped off with a Wildcat emblem. Dropping all of the other mail to the elevator floor, Anna stares blankly at time's cruel joke, asking herself how in the world fifteen years have gone by since graduating from high school (and, yet she still hasn't quite mastered the art of adulting). An invitation to the reunion back home is going down in two months and being held at, wait for it, the high school gym. The place where every dance was held and many, many, MANY bad decisions were made. Never in her life has Anna been more thankful to have a ten mile run awaiting her to distract her from this time bombshell. Questions intensify through the runner's mind- "Should I go"? "I wonder if Jess is going". "I mean, I am in the best shape of my life right now". "What in the hell am I going to wear"?

The saucy, little black and silver Betsey Johnson number features:
✶Silver foil brocade pattern on black lace overlay
✶Dainty bows along top of bodice at spaghetti straps and side zipper
✶Satin trimming along v-cut neckline, empire waistband, ties, and adjustable straps
✶Scalloped hemline. Partially lined

One of her biggest regrets in regards to high school (minus dating a total loser for four years) was never joining the cross country team. During a moment of clarity on the evening's ten mile run, Anna came to the conclusion that she owes it to her teenage self to attend the event, despite the many feelings and emotions it stirs up. Doesn't mean she can't channel her ole' punk style sporting some black ankle creepers, her mom's cameo choker, a bright red lip, and some seriously chiseled gams.

Returns and exchange details

✩Shopping is kind of like Tinder. You have to look over all of the photos, details, measurements, and terrible music tastes, before you make THE COMMITMENT. All sales are final.

✩Sequin Whore vintage items are previously worn and loved with a story to tell. The pieces are hand chosen with attention to condition, quality, hand, construction, and fit. Before the article is given a stamp of approval for saleability, it is carefully looked over for flaws and imperfections. Any inadequacies are reflected in the condition portion of the lisiting description. However, despite the best efforts and most thorough eye, it is possible that a slight blemish may have been overlooked. Refunds will only be explored if a piece has been widely misrepresented. (Whoosh, what a mouthful that was).

✩If a refund is deemed appropriate for vintage purchases, the buyer is responsible for return shipping. Returned merchandise is expected to be postmarked within 2 days of it's arrival date and in the condition it was in when sold. If additional damage has been done to the item upon return, buyer will be responsible for cost of loss in value. In such case, the buyer will be contacted before any proceedings take place. Monetary refunds may take up on 7 business days depending on bank processing.

✩Refunds will not be offered for sizing issues in vintage purchases. Sequin Whore offers garment measurements in listing descriptions and will happily work alongside you if additional information is needed. (Pinky promise, we will get through it together).
