RARE Original 50's Lillie Rubin Gothic Black Lace and Chiffon Designer Cocktail Dress

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Label: Lillie Rubin

Material: Lace and satin


(coming soon)

Condition: The sleeves on this dress have many holes in them. The chiffon under-layer in both the sleeves and the front neckline has been torn. The lace and chiffon skirt, however, is in perfect condition with no tears, rips, or stains. The built-in bustier part of the dress is like-wise in perfect condition, so if you were to simply remove the lace and chiffon layers of the top half, you could have the most stunning satin bustier with lace and chiffon skirt dress ever seen!

Since this dress is easily rehabilitated, and because it's almost impossible to find an original Lillie Rubin from this era, I've adjusted the price to what I think is fair.
