    Carol Brent Metallic Party Dress s/m Size 11 Vintage 50s
    Fabulous. Carol brent elegance for that vintage garden party or tea with a swingy sweet skirt. Green and golden flowers twine along the metallic brocade bodice, all lined in with a smooth, soft lining to stop any scratchiness. Zip back works fine, two hook-and-eye closures at neck and at waist. Interior lining has some fading/discoloration from time, but is in good shape, top 'eye' of the hook-and-eye needs a new loop. No holes! No content labels, but there is one small tag in the skirt with a union logo, another in the bodice that says 'size 11'. Bodice is fitted with darts and finished with two accenting little bows of cording in the same metallic fabric. Back has a stylish keyhole design. Bodice lining continues on down to provide an underskirt for the bright shamrock green skirt, which feels like chiffon, very swishy and swingy. Underneath is a pouf of green netting to give it that stylish fullness, so a half-slip or petticoat would be preferred for comfort. I have not laundered it due to some folks preferring to work with cleaning vintage clothing by their own methods, but there's no unusual odors or anything outside a general 'been in storage' condition. No returns on vintage clothing, so please be sure of the measurements before purchase, i'll be happy to take additional measurements if needed. Measurements, laying flat: waist 13' bust/pit to pit 16 ' shoulder to shoulder 14' neck opening 6' shoulder to waist 16' skirt length 20' overall length 36'

    Pre-owned 1980s Yves Saint Laurent Pink Silk Suit
    Yves Saint Laurent Suits, Outfits and Ensembles. From our unique collection of Suits, Outfits and Ensembles, this piece is offered for sale online by Shrimpton Couture. Global shipping is available. This is an amazing suit from the Yves Saint Laurent label. The fabric is absolutely stunning and takes center stage on this piece! Constructed from a metallic silk brocade done in a vivid pinks with shots of a brilliant green running through it. It is very reminiscent of the collection he did in Tribute to Pierre Bonnard for Fall-Winter 1988 and I have a feeling that this was a ready-to-wear version of that collection. It is cut perfectly, with strong shoulders, a wide notched lapel and classic double button front. Two top seamed pockets sit just below the waist. Large gold metal buttons close the jacket and four smaller versions finish each cuff. Each of the buttons on the sleeve are there for decorative purposes only, however, each still has a proper finished buttonhole underneath - I love that attention to detail!! The skirt is stunning and sexy. It wraps and closes at the side with four of those same huge gold buttons with a flash of leg seen underneath. One scooped pocket sits on one hip. Excellent, unworn condition. Jacket: Shoulders: 16” from seam to seam Bust: 19” flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 16” flat across from side seam to side seam Total length: 24” from neck to bottom hem Sleeves: 22” from shoulder seam to longest point Skirt: Waist: 13” flat across the back from side seam to side seam Hips: 19” flat across the back from side seam to side seam Total length: 22” from waist seam to bottom hem Both pieces are fully lined in the highest quality pink silk. The jacket closes with the gold toned metal buttons as shown and the skirt closes with the same huge gold buttons and a large flat hook & eye at the waist. Modern Sizing equivalent: SML-MED (6-10)
