BREATH TAKING STARLIGHT SOIREE PURPLE & GOLD BEADED & SEQUIN GRAND SWEEP EVENING GOWN - PERFECT FOR A FORMAL OCCASION & THE HOLIDAYS
This gorgeous evening gown is from Starlit Soiree encrusted with sparkling gold beads & purple & black sequins
What i read on the internet about starlit soiree is that it is a company located on olympic blvd in beverly hills that specializes in renting evening gowns for beauty pageant events & formal occasions in addition to fund raisers for ladies that do not want to wear an evening gown twice - according to the article, they have been in business for 15 years
This beautiful evening gown is heavy from the sequins, iridescent shot & beading & the colors are gorgeous in purple, black & gold on the bodice with a very full nylon chiffon grand sweep skirt - there are places on the bodice sleeves that are outline in gold beading with sheer black nylon so you see a slight glimplse of skin through it - just beautiful - very heavy beading on the gown
There is a wide set-in midriff also encrusted with more beads & sequins & shot - semi-sheer full skirt over taffeta-like fabric - long back zippering back with a keyhole above it with a hook & eye
Absolutely gorgeous in these colors of purple & gold & black & would be stunning for any formal affair, mother of the bride or groom, a cruise or a holiday party
By: Starlit Soiree
Size: no tag so go by the measurements
Bust: 40 - 41 stretched tight
Waist: 31 untretched
Fabric: no tag for the skirt but it is probably a nylon chiffon - the lining is acetate taffeta
Care: no tag but probably dry clean
Condition: very good - a couple of very small things - some beading missing but you‘d never notice it as there are thousands & thousands of beads & sequins on the dress - hems on sleeves need to be tacked up as last person put some safety pins in to hold up as they probably needed to adjust the hem on the sleeves for her - 1 very small holes pencil eraser size & 1 smaller right next to the hem which i never would have seen in the voluminous skirt unless i was looking very closely at the gown because it is down so far & also black - could pull together in a couple of seconds or just leave as it doesn‘t impair the wearability of the gown
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.
