Whoa! Talk about 80s. This piece is so 80s it's ill. Not in the Beastie Boys kind of way.

So what are you waiting for? Not everyone can own an Oscar like this.

Made of 100% silk (lining is 100% polyester), the top is a pale bubblegum pink (is more saturated depending on your lighting) and the skirt is pure black. There are no belt loops around the waist - but you can always belt if you want to. The front of the bodice is made of two pieces of pleated silk, quite thick, criss-crossing in the front. It's sewn to the skirt in small pleats. The shoulders have three sewn-in pleats as well. The sleeves are ruched where they are joined and extremely puffy, hardcore princess style. The back has a hidden zipper that extend from the top of the neckline to half-way through the whole skirt (tucks into the skirt so that the entire zipper is not sticking out). Covering the zipper as well are a hook-and-eye latch and two snaps in the skirt. The skirt itself is just plain black with hidden pockets on either side as well. The hemline is sturdy to give it a circle/hoop skirt feel, with a lining of ruched black fabric, like curtains. This layer is lined with black tulle-like fabric, and in the bodice it is the same but with pink-colored fabric. The skirt has a second skirt underneath made of this tulle-like polyester, with ruched lining as well.

No rips, tears, or stains. There are a few stray threads that are not loose, and I have been cutting them as I see them. There is a single stitch that has snagged in the front of the bodice, by the right-hand armpit. Could easily just be cut.

I don't know if this dress has been worn before, or how many times. Once? To a life-changing moment like something out of "Never Been Kissed"? (starring Drew Barrymore)

Tag says Miss O by Oscar de la Renta, size 8. SEE MEASUREMENTS FOR ACCURATE SIZING! The garment industry has changed a lot in terms of "standard sizing" over the past thirty years.

BODICE LENGTH: 17" flat from shoulder to waistline
SLEEVE LENGTH: ~14" from shoulder, up puff, down to cuff
TOTAL DRESS LENGTH: 41" flat from shoulder to bottom hem

Is this 50s or 80s? "Pleasantville" (the movie) or Madonna concert? Would you wear this to a cocktail party or to a costume party?

Only you can decide...
