VINTAGE '80s HALSTON III BLACK AND SPARKLING METALLIC GOLD LAME VELVET EVENING DRESS / COCKTAIL DRESS
A sparkling metallic gold and black cocktail dress by Halston III.
The metallic gold lame fabric is gorgeous and almost thin like tissue paper but a just a bit heavier as it should be. The lame is embossed so it catches the light beautifully and sparkles. It is just beautiful and will be outstanding under evening lights.
The waistline has a insert of creamy black soft velveteen or velvet and the gold lame travels below that for a lovely contrast in colors and textures. There are three slide hooks at the waist for closure with a brilliantly sparkling Princess cut huge rhinestone accent. Very soft lush velveteen or velvet skirt. The dress is completely lined. Shoulder pads for shaping. Tiny slits at the end of the sleeves with a self-covered button accent. The back is just as gorgeous as the front.
Perfect for the a formal occasion, cruise, black tie affair and the holidays which will be here before you know it.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
