GORGEOUS VINTAGE DONNA RICHARD LACE & SATIN PEIGNOIR & NIGHTGOWN SET IN SHIMMERING PINK PEARL
An exquisite vintage satin and assorted laces peignoir and nightgown set by Donna Richards in a shade called Shimmering Pink Pearl.
This brand has been sold in Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and other high end stores in the past. The set is in a pale pink shade and is adorned with the most fabulous assortment of laces that you have ever seen! You will never find a set like this in stores nowadays because manufacturers will not make them because of the high cost to them.
The peignoir has heavily embroidered wide intricate scalloped lace along on the bodice with different finely embroidered lace on the shoulder and sleeve area. I love the unique sleeves with wide scalloped lace lined with pale pink satin. The satin is thick and lush and very luxurious smooth feeling. Inside ties. Two pockets. There are loops and a matching tie for closure.
The nightgown is just as beautiful as the peignoir if not more. The bodice is also covered with heavily embroidered fine lace with more heavier wide lace which matches the peignoir in the shape of a "V". Pink satin bow threaded through the lace as well as on the straps. Miniature lace on the elastic lowered back.
An absolutely gorgeous vintage peignoir and nightgown set with beautiful mixture of fine embroidered lace, heavier lace and satin ribbon by the wonderful vintage designer Donna Richard.

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.
