MARILYN - retro vintage dress swing or pencil


Size Guide

If you are looking for a timeless classic to add a spark of Marilyn-inspired pizazz to your wardrobe, this is it! It wows in true vintage style dress with a high sweetheart neckline, button-down bodice and fitted waist. The skirt billows out in a softly swing for the ultimate sensuous walk.

This sensational dress comes in a two-tone color block pattern. Mix and match colors to suit your mood. Go with blended soft shades for a demure daytime look. Choose dramatic striking contrasts for an evening affair. The coat is not included – I have it on another listing. And, YES, I can add sleeves.

Highly recommended

Fabulous look and quality

Amazing quality and great customer service

This is my second time ordering from Cynthia
I ordered the merylene dress with two colors, pink and blue , when it arrived it fit me perfectly but I realised I chose the wrong color combo so I asked Cynthia to exchange it , despite the fact that it was custom made and color choice was entirely mine , Cynthia accepted the exchange immediately and offered me to choose another dress
I loved the merrylene design so I chose it but with royal blue only color
It arrived and I look gorgeous in it because it fit my skin tone and fit me like a glove

Amazing customer service!

The dress was beautiful and the customer service was absolutely outstanding! Cynthia answered all my questions and even added pockets for me. This is a wonderful company and I am excited to buy from here again.

So nice I've bought it twice!

I have the Marilyn in swing AND pencil because it's just so gorgeous! Such beautiful dealing, quality fabric - now I just need to get the matching coats!
