Black and Sequined Cheong Sum

I went to the thrift shop again today, to see if the gold and black puffy-sleeved top was still there. It wasn't but I found this black silk-like cheong sum instead. It had beaded and sequined detailing in rainbow colors (double wow from me). It even had a Singapore tailor's address on its label, I simply love this!
Wonderful detailing with the different colored sequins on the Mandarin collar:



I'm not sure if this dress is vintage and not clear what's at the address now (will check it out soon though). The label with the Singapore tailor's address:

Personally I think its a bit tacky but I'm sure you can work it.

Ana, we agree to differ then. :)

I will do a better job with the photography next time when I wear it, not doing justice to the dress now.

I haven't worn one since I was younger, when my parents forced me to for New Years.
