* R & M RICHARDS SPARKLY COCKTAIL DRESS WITH BOLERO JACKET - WORN ONCE FOR AN HOUR
Cocktail dress and bolero jacket in black with black sparkles on the jacket and dress. Purchased from Dillard's for a cruise. Worn for only an hour for a welcome cocktail party on the cruise.
Shoulder pads in jacket which can be removed.
Dress is an easy pull over. Flared skirt on the dress with plain black fabric alternating with black sparkly panels for a flared bias skirt. 16 bias-cut gores in the skirt for plenty of swing and motion when walking. The skirt on the dress hangs beautifully because of the fluid spandex fabric.
Just gorgeous for so many occasions - cocktail party, evening on the town, New Year's Eve, Christmas party, cruise, etc.

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.
