VINTAGE JERRY GILDEN SPARKLING RHINESTONE BROCADE COCKTAIL DRESS
The styling is beautiful on this vintage '50s A Jerry Gilden Spectator twinkling rhinestone cocktail dress with a metal zipper.
The brocade fabric is excellent quality heavy brocade with embossed long stem roses and leaves. The color of the dress is a mauve floral on a silvery mauvey background. Sparkling prong set rhinestones are encrusted on the bodice of the dress. Jewel neckline with a lower scoop cut back. Two side pockets in seams. Vintage metal zipper in back. Very full bias skirt for swing dancing.
Just in time for the holidays and it will look gorgeous for cocktails, an evening out, a formal affair or a cruise.

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.
