First Season Miu Miu Plaid Dress Size 40
Do you remember the first season that Miu Miu appeared? Well, I do. I was so excited about the store opening -- and the fact that a diffusion line for Prada was available, something more affordable. Ok. "Affordable."
Chloe Sevigny, in the Kids-era, and Drew Barrymore were the first to model for the line. I thought that was a brilliant move for Miuccia Prada and added a much needed hipness to the Prada line-up.
I bought this shirt dress at the Miu Miu Prince Street Boutique. I think it was my second Miu Miu purchase, the first being a pair of clunky wooden heels that I think are still very cool (and which I still own) to this very day. I remember paying something like $450 for the dress -- a huge expense then and now.
It's hard to price this dress since you never see them around but I think it will be a collectors item in the future in the way that Karl Lagerfeld's dresses for 70s era Chloe are now collected: a future classic.
Condition: Mint. No rips, stains or tears. Comes with matching belt. Everything is original, down to the buttons. I've never had it altered. Absolutely mint, pre-owned condition.
Size: Italian 40. Miu Miu runs small, so this would easily fit a Italian 38, US size 0-2 or French 34. (I wear a size 38 normally and this fits perfectly.)
Measurements: shoulder 15"
Bust: 34" accommodates A, B or less full C cup (my model form is a 34C and the dress is tight around the chest when worn on the form.)
Dress length: 38" -- knee length.
Asking: $100 + 6 shipping
