VINTAGE '80s LILLIE RUBIN SPARKLING RHINESTONE SANTANA KNIT EVENING DRESS
A very sophisticated vintage ‘80s evening dress by lillie rubin - the label is identical to the ‘80s label on the vintage fashion guild site
the knit is like the st. John santana knits & is heavy - the black knit dress is sprinkled with sparkling rhinestones with heavily encrusted rhinestones on the neck - the label matches the vintage fashion guilds label for late ‘70s / early ‘80s
the rhinestones on the bodice of the dress are placed so the dress looks as though it has a sweetheart bodice - the shoulders & tops of the sleeves are also sprinkled with rhinestones & there are more on the ends of the for plenty of glamour - back zipper - shoulder pads which can be removed - unlined
a beautiful vintage dress by lillie rubin studded with twinkling rhinestones - just gorgeous!

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.
