Black crepe halter neck dress with collar

Ruth bought this Miss Hebe dress to wear to dinner at a restaurant in Hamilton. “I walked all around Victoria St and found it in the last shop I went into." A this time, going out for dinner was a big deal and there weren’t many restaurants in Hamilton. Going out was an opportunity to "put on their finery" and dine and dance all night.
