VINTAGE SPARKLING RHINESTONE & HUGE PEARL EVENING DRESS WITH A GORGEOUS BACK
A vintage evening dress in a beautiful shade of rose pink encrusted with huge pearls, silver beads, shot & prong-set rhinestones
The luscious fabric is a very heavy expensive peau de soir - the sparkling vintage prong-set rhinestones are iridescent & go beautifully with the rose color of the dress - the empire-style band of jewels continues around to the very deep lowered v back for a gorgeous look coming or going - fully lined - back zipper - this is a very heavy dress & very well made - vintage pinked seams - just stunning as one does not see this type of expensive beading & prong-set rhinestones on dresses nowaday & if you do, they are cheap looking - back zipper
perfect for a cruise, a formal event or the mother of a bride
By: no tag
Size: no tag so go by the measurements
Bust: hard to measure because of the dolman sleeves but up to 42
Waist: 28-½ unstretched
Hips: 38 - 40 stretched but leave room for movement
Fabric: peau de soir
Care: no tag but dry clean
Condition: very good - some whitish spots as shown in the photo which looks like it may be food - like light white frosting? - some triple dark pinhead spots on the dress & some dark soiling at the hemline the largest being about 3“ like some splashing of soiling - i think a cleaning would take care of most of it & since the largest soiling is near the hemline no one would notice it - former owner pinned up a section of the hem as a small part came undone - easy fix for cleaners - may be a bead or two missing but with all of the massive beading on there no one would notice
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.
