gold vintage dress





Vintage Gold Dress:

Fabric Polyester with metallic lining. I am guessing.

Details:

No lining because I think it was custom made.

I am normally a size 6 with 27 inch waist. It’s a little snug around my ribcage, especially around the area where the belt buttons. It will accommodate a 34 B or C.

Imperfections:
There is brown stain on the left shoulder and the belt clasps are worn out, it just needs to be tightened with better stitching.

Shipping costs:
$12 (check or cash)

Listing end date:
Dec. 16

marc jacobs skirt






recipient--The Politician's Wife

marc jacobs wool skirt (size 8).

i bought this at the barneys outlet 3 years ago, but the length isn't very flattering on me. it's also a little too big, but at the time the price was too tempting...lesson learned.

flat measurements:
waist--16 1/2"
hips--19"
length--29"

details:
fully lined
front diagonal pockets
intricate shaping seams at front and back
as far as i can tell, it is a fitted silhouette that hugs the hips and then flares out at the knees, which probably explains why it doesn't look as good if it sits too low on the hips.
fabric content--65% wool, 27% nylon, 5% acrylic, 3% polyester

imperfections:
none. worn twice.

shipping costs:
$15

apc madras dress





recipient--a version

apc madras cotton cream colored dress with lurex stipes (Small).

i wish this fit me, but for some reason this particular cut doesn't work for me. either it's too tight or the straps fall off my shoulders. it's from the spring collection (06?), but looks nice with a long sleeved shirt for the colder months.

flat measurements:
straps--7" long
chest--16"
length--40" (from top of shoulder straps)

details:
two cloth covered buttons at the back
9" ruffled hem
lined

imperfections:
the buttons fell off, i did my best to reattach them.
