Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Dorothy O'Hara Pencil Dress

Sold out

Bombshell 1940s pencil dress by master of the hourglass silhouette, Dorothy O'Hara. Razor sharp silhouette with strong padded shoulders, high neckline and fabulous hip 'pocket' details. The nipped waist is framed by contrasting trim at the neckline, andthe wider pockets at hips for an exaggerated hourglass effect. All of the beautiful tailoring and excellent quality synonymous with the Dorothy O'Hara label. The fabric is baby soft wool. Hidden back zipper and hidden closures at the wrist for a flawless look. I love the color block effect, killer silhouette and muted color palette. Serving you all the Blade Runner Rachael realness.

Dorothy O’Hara was a California designer who designed for Hollywood stars and was "a sorceress at glorifying figures". This dress is designed to do just that. The mannequin lacks the hips and booty to fill out the dress, imagine the lines of the skirt flowing over your curves to truly appreciate the genius of the design.
