Dramatic silk vintage 1980s Scaasi off-shoulder cocktail party bubble skirt dress with bubble treatment across the front and shoulders, with a bold painterly heart print.

Love how the dress is fitted closely to the body from just under the bust to the top of the hips, where the bubble skirt begins. It has the drama and feel of a flamenco dancer's dress.

Beautifully made, as you'd expect from one of America's true couturiers and leading designers of the period. This piece is from his Boutique line, which was launched in 1984. Although Scaasi Boutique was his ready-to-wear line, dresses were priced at around $1000, and that's 1980s $1000. (His couture dresses were around $5000 at the time.)

Anyway, this is a beautiful high end designer cocktail or party dress, iconic of the period, with a truly great painterly heart print and color palette.

Need help figuring out if it will fit you? Just click on the Contact link at the bottom and I'll be happy to help.

The Condition: Very good. Freshly dry cleaned, zipper glides smoothly. Just a few minor issues to report. Several of the chartreuse hearts are somewhat discolored (I swear they weren't before I took it to the dry cleaners, grr, but I've got a shot of that for you), and there are a couple of pinholes on the lining near the label (which you can see in the label shot).

The Shipping: Delivered by vintage hearts and souls (or soles - your choice), I mean Priority mail, within the U.S.; International First Class to Canada, and International First Class to Everywhere Else.

Yoohoo, International buyers! Your country may charge you customs fees on your purchase, which you're responsible for paying. Just so you know ahead of time and aren't unpleasantly surprised :)
