CONDITION: This dress is simply incredible!! The color was so hard to capture on the camera so I had to lighten some of the photos to show the detailing. I would describe the colors as black (of course...that's obvious) and a rich deep bronze.
Overall for its age I say it is in great condition. A few small areas of seam need to be reinforced but this is a super easy job for your tailor.
Two buttons are missing. One is the very last button by the hem and the other is from the back. I tried it on and it is remarkable!!


COMBINED SHIPPING: I will be happy to combine shipping on multiple items purchased. The shipping costs are set up so that if you purchase more than one item it will automatically be adjusted to the combined shipping costs.

All packages sent in the US will have a tracking number that will be sent to you once package has been shipped.

All international packages with a value over $140.00 are sent priority mail so that there will be a tracking number. The package will be sent via United State Postal Service (USPS). If there is another carrier that you would prefer and is less expensive I will be happy to send it through that carrier. Please contact me with the details.
** Please note that some countries charge a customs tax for packages originating from the US. Consider this before purchasing.
