Paul Costelloe black silky charmeuse evening skirt with undulating scalloped hemline. The color is deep black and the fabric has shine to it (It's an acetate and rayon charmeuse). The skirt flares just below the waist and offers a dramatic swing in the skirt. Costelloe is a well known Irish fashion designer in business since the early 80s, known for cut, drape, and high quality tailoring. This skirt is most likely from the 80s based on the other items I found in the collection I bought it from. I have accessorized it with a cashmere turtleneck and necklace, both which are not included.

Label : Paul Costelloe (made in Ireland)
Size: UK 14; US size 10). Check your measurements against mine for the right size for you.
Fabric: 63% acetate; 37% viscose charmeuese

26" high waist. There is a plastic button at the hip to close to waist.
50" hip width (fully stretched out)
39" overall length, front of waistband to hemline front

Remarks: unlined. Excellent vintage condition with little to no sign of wear. No rips, stains, marks. I would call this wear now. Skirt hand straps for storage (nice touch)

Shipping basics: I can ship worldwide to most locales (not all) so ask. Also I can discount and combine shipping for multiple items. Just ask. More info on shipping below.

About me: I am a NY based photo prop stylist for magazines like Real Simple, Instyle, Seventeen, and a few others, plus I’m a well versed shopping powerhouse for props for my photo shoots (some, you will find, oftentimes end up here on Etsy). I really enjoy finding cool stuff, and the result is what I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, fashion and home accessories, and mid century odds and ends---with fair and affordable pricing. I like good stuff.

On the whole I’m an easy to approach seller, and if you love something but can’t afford it and wish I would discount it for you I probably will. That said, I majorly frown on low-ball offers for items that are clearly well-priced, so do us both a favor and don’t go there. My pricing is fair and Im told super cheap in comparison to like items in other shops or on Ebay. I am interested in making money, yes, but I tell you I get more of a charge out of finding appreciative homes and closets for my amazing things. The real deal is that I have a really skilled eye for lovely items, and I have more than I can handle and need to clear out my storage bins.

On quality: When I shop I do so carefully, and only select items of a certain quality and design dignity. I really like crafting a nicely balanced shop with things for most body shapes and sizes, and I take great care in how each item compliments other items in my shop. I only list things I feel are of a high quality, but if I find an amazing dress thatis damaged or needs some love, I have it listed because I know there is someone out there who wants it---even with blemishes or repair needs. I've found Etsy to be the perfect place for me to sell that sort of thing. So the message is: there’s no junk here, just well a well culled group of neat vintage stuff from home goods to fashion.

I dutifully detail all measurements, blemishes, and details I feel are necessary in the listing, and welcome additional info about a designer or item from shoppers. In my travels I come across amazing vintage clothing in the spirit of Betty Draper and Joan Holloway from Mad Men--great silhouettes and styles that are hand made, dressmaker patterned, or tailor made by home makers in the 50s and 60s. When I come across major designer labels like Chanel or Dior I scoop them up, and again with damaged clothing of a certain quality I know there is someone out there with a mending kit and some moxie that wants them. That said, most of what I like to sell is in clean and ready to go condition.

Shipping: I can ship worldwide (though not everywhere) so convo me for inquiries about countries not listed. As a rule I try to ship Priority Mail when possible to insure that shipments arrive safely and have some sort of trafficking number. I can ship any way you like, though. For international shipments I can send via USPS International First Class depending on the weight of the package, and that is usually a less expensive route. When I am in town I generally ship same day as purchase or within 2 or 3 days. If I am out of town for extended periods of time I put my shop on hold, so if it’s up online I’m probably in town.
