New with Tag -- Isabel Marant Etoile Padua Dress, Size 1 (6-8)

above photo from totokaelo website

Description: Isabel Marant Etoile Padua dress in Petrole shade, Size 1. From the Fall 2008 collection. With tag, never been worn -- just tried on. Purchased from Penny Lane in San Antonio. Skirt is lined. Hidden pockets. Semi-sheer dress with rounded scooped neckline. Front placket with single hidden snap closure. Inverted pleat at bottom of placket. Fuller skirt with inverted pleats. Drawstring waist with midnight tape ties at sides. Princess seaming. Long slight dolman sleeve with V inserts under arm. Hidden snap closure at cuff. Rounded front hemline. Side slits at hem with stitched arrow detail above. Back yoke with soft gathers below.

Care and Fabric Content: Machine wash. 90% cotton, 10% wool.
Sizing: Runs big -- a size 1 fit me perfectly, and I am a size 6. This would also fit size 4 and 8 since the waist is adjustable, and there is plenty of room in the hips.

Why I am Selling: I have an IM tunic that looks EXACTLY like this, so I figured I would eliminate some redundancy in my closet.

Retail: $552 at Totokaelo and $477 at Penny Lane

Asking: $100 (price includes shipping to US addresses; postage extra outside US);
This dress is in PERFECT condition, and has been hanging in my closet since last winter.

End Date: August 1, 2009
