# 7666 - c. 1930's HARRY COOPER, Hollywood Ivory Silk Chiffon Covered in Sequins!  I researched Harry Cooper and finally found ONE book about the history of Hollywood!  Seems Harry Cooper's was "a beautiful ladies shop.  Beautiful.  Beautiful store and beautiful merchandise.  People used to walk down the boulevard and window shop".   Also on Hollywood Boulevard was the glamorous and famous restaurant Sardi's, I. Magnin and, of couse, Grauman's Chinese Theater.  This gown is in surprisingly great condition for a delicate light colored fabric!!!  The only issues are that the rayon lining will need a bit of a shortening, and there are extremely minor spots around the hemline.  But WHAT a sweet 1930s gown!!!!  Pretty enough to wear for a summer wedding dress!  This was probably meant to be worn ankle or calf length, but I show it to the ground as well.  Measures: up to 36/37" bust, up to 29" waist up to 35" at low waist, up to 42" hips, 18" from shoulder to drop waist, 53" long from shoulder to hem.  Side metal zipper.  Really Excellent condition with the few very very minor issues mentioned.

# 7747 - c. 2004 MELANIE GRIFFITH Worn Purple Silk Gauze Chiffon Gown by VERSACE!  Worn on September 19, 2004 for the 56th Annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles!  This is the 6th and last RED CARPET gown I have owned and worn by Melanie Griffith.  Ms. Griffith never looked more beautiful this night, though one wonders if perhaps she was in some early stage of pregnancy... perhaps....  I only say that because of the fit of the gown and because of the photo of Antonio holding her stomach, which is never a good idea unless there's a reason.   But she obviously never had the baby if there was one.  Again... this is only wild speculation on my part.  OK.. the gown.  Uma Thurman wore another lavender Versace gown that year to the Golden Globes.  Beautifully and expertly designed and created.  Love the chiffon scarves across back and floating down.   The gown is various shades of purple (looks more blue in some of the photos) and is a crinkly silk gauze or crepe chiffon material.   This was certainly a very expensive gown!  Very similar in design and construction to the Whitney Houston ATELIER VERSACE labeled gown I sold.  They both have a sheer complete inner snap-bottom bodysuit to keep everything in place. Excellent condition. A bit of stretch, Measures:  up to 35" bust, up to 28" waist, up to 36" hips, 40" long from shoulder to hem. Slightly padded bust.  Also Listed in the 1930-Today Category.      FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.     NOTE:  a portion of the sale from this gown will go to the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles.

# 4966 - c. 2000's KATE SPADE, New York Embroidered Metallic Linen Two-Tiered Wrap Skirt! I'm obviously out of the loop as I didn't even know that Kate Spade had an apparel line (I found this skirt in a resale shop), I just know her accessories. But her apparel pieces seem to be fairly rare, as even on the kate spade website, there are only a hand- full of apparel pieces for sale! So what's up?   This is obviously a great skirt, so perhaps she just needs my help to get her apparel business up and running? :)  This is a true wrap skirt so it will fit most of you.  It's a wonderful brushed golden color of a fairly shiny metallic 100% linen with large black embroidered design of flowers, vines, and three different animals.  Due to the black linen underskirt that peeks out the bottom, the embroidery evoke the look of silhouettes or cutouts.  Near Mint condition.  24" long.  #295  Approx. - SIZE 10

# 6655 - c. 1780 RARE Lady's Shoe of Cream Satin! Verbal Provenance Only Claims it Belonged to ABIGAIL ADAMS (Wife of the 2nd US President John Adams - in office May, 1789 - March 1797)!  AND RARE c. 1790 Gentleman's Cream Colored Stocking Said to Have Belonged to JOHN ADAMS! One Shoe, and One Stocking Only. I have no idea what happened to the other shoe/stocking.  Here's the story... I got this along with a few other items from the 18th and 19th centuries from a collector who was sold these items by an antique dealer in San Francisco. That antique dealer acquired these from a descendant (believed to be the granddaughter of Abigail Adams Johnson Seymour who was moving into a retirement home).  The other items in the lot are: c. 1839 wedding gloves trimmed with blonde lace, and c. 1839 bertha of blonds lace worn by Frances Antill Tappan, c. 1839 flounce of fine limerick lace, worn in turn by Frances Antill Tappan, Elsie Gaussvont (sp?) Crysler, Catherine Maria Crysler Johnson, and Abigail Adams Johnson Seymour (married to the g.-g.-g.-grandson of John Adams and grand nephew of Gov. Horatio Seymour of New York), and 2 various cuffs, pair of undersleeves and collar from the 1840-1850s.  Condition of all pieces is Fair to Good.  As you can see the shoe has quite a bit of wear of the satin.   I'm not sure what is best to do with these pieces, as I can't confirm this provenance, but the collector I purchased these from is a highly respected museum curator, who has sold me some of my best pieces! Photos of the other pieces going up soon...  I DO hate just "giving you a story" of provenance... makes me sound sooooo "sleazy".  I just have to give you the information I have on these pieces, and if there is anyway to confirm it... I hope that the buyer will continue to keep all these items together for future sleuthing.  Meanwhile, priced to sell at the value for the antique artifacts alone.

# 6538 - c. 2007 MARC JACOBS Light Blue and White Cotton Dress with Red Leather Clutch Purse!  Worn by Lake Bell in the Movie "Over Her Dead Body"! Should I confess? Yes, I suppose I should because it's possible we will be wearing the same dress if we ever meet! :)  That's because I bought TWO of these dresses from the movie set of "Over Her Dead Body".  I just couldn't bear to sell the first one I bought (as I look damn good in it), so I got this other one.  You are buying the only one with the red leather clutch purse she wore ( I just pinned it to the dressform, but you can see it's either a clutch or has a hand strap.) I don't get a purse, I got only one of those so it's yours :(  If you watch the movie you will see why they had more than one dress/purse... because in the scene she is buying a hotdog at a vendor and manages to squirt mustard all over the dress and purse.  So they certainly needed additional dresses for re-takes.  Luckily this is NOT the dress that was "slimed". Marked size 4.  I guess this proves that I size larger as I would call this a 4/6. Measures: up to 35" bust, up to 30" waist. Excellent condition.  This would have cost more new, even without the movie connection... or purse!!!!  Also Listed in the Memorabilia Category.

# 7327A - c. 1950's MR. BLACKWELL Custom Red Flocked Velvet on Satin Peplum Gown with Matching Reversible Shawl!  Incredibly, this is the 2nd of these dresses I've found!  The previous one was a dress, this is a gown with a matching reversible shawl.  Rare to find exactly the same vintage dress twice... even more rare to find a "Custom" piece twice!  And this one was also created for a va-va-voom figure.   Both required me to stuff my dressform's bust (she got all excited to be so sexy!) :)   Measures:  37" bust with large cup size, 29" waist, up to 39" hips, 57" long from shoulder to hem. (Note:  the hips have been let out 1" on either side and there are some stitch marks, but easy to put back to it's original size of up to 37" hips if you wish), 17" slit at back of skirt to aid in walking. Back has well-made 2 plastic zippers.  Great dress of great flocked material on satin!  Comes with the original matching scarf of 81" x 18.5" with the flocked red roses on one size and off-white satin on the other.  Pretty little bow at upper back zipper.  Love the peplum!  Excellent condition on both pieces... except for the stitch marks as mentioned and extreme minor speckles on the LINING only of the lower gown. I love this!!  If you'd rather have this as a dress, looks equally fantastic, so just hem up to your liking.  Just don't tell me as I hate to disturb any vintage piece. :)

Debbie Reynolds:
"What I remember most from this party is how much I loved my dress. Helen Rose did this outfit for me. It's pale green, and the coat is lined with the same beading as the dress. We had to pay for those dresses back then. The $7,000 cost was steep."
at the Governors Ball, 1964

 

# 9910 - RARE c. 1960's HELEN ROSE Couture Pink Beaded Dress!  Helen Rose was one of the few top Hollywood Designers from the 1940s-60s. She costumed over 200 films for MGM, was honored with 10 Oscar nominations and two Oscar wins! She designed wardrobe for a long list of stars. And her designs are memorable...such as Elizabeth Taylor's famous white wrap dress and slip from "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof".  She was Grace Kelly's favorite, designing her wardrobe for "The Swan" and "High Society" AND her personal wedding gown, as well as Elizabeth Taylor's first wedding gown to Nicky Hilton,  a white satin gown embellished with seed pearls and beading which had taken a number of beaders two months to complete! Helen's consumer line, "Helen Rose Couture", existed from 1957-1972. In 1957, the price for her retail version of the Liz Taylor "Cat" short chiffon dress was $250! So you can just imagine the original price of this beaded dress! Easily $5,000+ in the 60s! Fitted fully beaded dress with extremely flattering low "v" neckline both front and back.  Fabulous floral beaded and rhinestones over the entire bodice and wide band at hemline.  Awesome! If Helen Rose was good enough for Grace Kelly and Liz Taylor for their wedding gowns, well... By the way, don't forget to mention the Grace Kelly / Liz Taylor connection to every woman in the room! Measures tops: 33/34" bust, 23/24" waist (23" inner band), 35/36" in the hips, 39" long from shoulder to hem. This is an opportunity to experience the luxury and glamour that was reserved for filmland's most beautiful women. Near Mint condition!  The BEST of the BEST! Also listed in the 1930-Today Category.

# 5992 - CAROLINA HERRERA, New York Black Silk Retro 60's Dress! Just Google search and you will see that a simple black Carolina Herrera dress sells for $2,000+ !!  And this is one of them!  I'm assuming it's only a few years old, but obviously designed in the 1960s Jackie Kennedy style with fabulous tailoring  From Vintage Label Resource (my favorite website!), Ms. Herrera began designing in 1981, but for many years prior to that she was known as a style setter.  She was from an affluent family and that has caused her to be grouped with other wealthy designers of the 1980s as the Socialite Designers.  Herrera’s clothes are feminine but comfortable. In 1986 she started a secondary line, CH by Carolina Herrera, which used less expensive fabrics than her top line, but that incorporated the same design details. In 1986 Herrera designed the wedding dress of Caroline Kennedy.  OK?  So, just want you to know what you're getting with this LBD (Little Black Dress).  Measures: up to 37/38" bust, up to 33" waist, up to 42" hips, 38" long from shoulder to hem.  Fully lined. Hidden zipper back. Near mint condition.  I never say mint condition, so this is the highest rating. Look at the photos to see the interesting tailoring.  BE A LADY!!!

So obviously this dress came in white as well as this black.  Wear with a white trench jacket and you will be runway ready! :)  This dress came from an estate of a wealthy NYC women who had only the best high-end pieces.

AUTHENTIC - ERROL FLYNN
Warner Bros. Label - Dated
Worn in  "SILVER RIVER"

SOLD
# 5908 - Dated June 12, 1947 ERROL FLYNN Screen Worn Greige-Green Wool Frock Coat (or Jacket) Worn in Movie "SILVER RIVER" An Errol Flynn Jacket! Direct to this website from Museum Deaccession!!  As good as anything you might have missed in the Debbie Reynolds' recent auction when Marilyn Monroe's "Subway" white dress sold for a mere $5.4 million! :)  From "Silver River"... with great photos of Mr. Flynn wearing this jacket (sorry, these are just jpgs, I don't have the lobby card). This piece has the museum labels as well as the Warner Bros label.  This is marked "Doubles" which means that more than one was created for the role as it would have been worn for so many days of filming that more than one was necessary. In researching comps for this jacket, there is another website that has a SOLD sign up for the matching jacket (also with the doubles stamp) from "Silver River" (along with the pants) and though they wouldn't disclose the selling price, they wrote back, "For your Errol Flynn Silver River piece we would estimate it at $4500 - $6000."   However, they had the pants (and this doesn't). The condition is likely the same as theirs. They list theirs as "Both garments are in good screen used condition with minor evidence of age".   I'm more specific... this frock coat has some fading/discoloration that is mostly seen under bright photography lights, and one tiny moth hole in upper arm (see photo), otherwise great.  Additional comps: Errol Flynn's “Don Juan de Marana” dark green two-piece suit from Adventures of Don Juan sold for $15,990 on June 18, 2011 at the Debbie Reynolds' auction; and Errol Flynn's two-piece green & beige tweed suit from "The Sun Also Rises" sold for $3,000 on June, 11, 2010 at the Profiles in History auction.  My sources tell me that Errol Flynn pieces are highly coveted, so...  You know what they say... buy the best you can afford, as the best will always retain value!! And that would be Errol Flynn's screen worn jacket.  FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

"Cast A Deadly Spell" HBO Movie

SOLD

# 7260 - c. 1991 JULIANNE MOORE Worn Green Sequin Halter Gown with Silk Ruffles and Original Long Green Gloves from the HBO Movie,  "Cast A Deadly Spell" You know, I KNEW I liked this gown when I first saw it....even without knowing for sure what movie it was from, but knowing it was a Julianne Moore gown.  Once I discovered the movie, and photos of Julianne wearing it (thanks Joe!), I realized why I was drawn to it.  Because this is a "vintage" look gown... as this movie plot takes place in 1948, so it's a recreation of that era. This gown certainly does evoke the era of the 1940s screen sirens!  And how beautiful this gown was on the redheaded Julianne (the photos from the movie can be seen by clicking on the photo at left).  The gown is in Excellent condition, Near Mint.  The gloves are strangely discolored.  I have no idea if they were like this originally, as it's hard to tell from the photos, but I'm assuming they weren't?  Anyway it's the gown that's so fabulous... the gloves are free! :)  Measures:  32" bust, 24" waist, up to 34" hips, 55" long from shoulder to hem in front (sort of, as it sweeps around from front slit) to 60" long at back. You have to see the deep padding in the bust... I guess Julianne needed some help back then! :)  Very small size.  Designed by Mary Rose, who is President of the Costume Designer's Guild and guest curator at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles.    Also Listed in the 1930-Today Category.   FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

"YANKEE DOODLE DANDY"

SOLD
# 5907 - Dated November 13, 1941 JAMES CAGNEY Screen Worn Suit Worn in Movie "YANKEE DOODLE DANDY"!  Worn extensively in the Beginning and End of Movie in Final Song and Dance Scene!  A James Cagney Suit! Direct to this website from Museum Deaccession!!  As good as anything you might have missed in the Debbie Reynolds' recent auction when Marilyn Monroe's "Subway" white dress sold for a mere $5.4 million! :)  From James Cagney's most important movie... from his Oscar winning performance in Yankee Doodle Dandy.   James Cagney's morning suit.  Both the jacket and the striped pants have labels and are both dated 11-13-41.  From all the research, the only movie he was filming at that time was "Yankee Doodle Dandy" ("YDD").   He had completed filming of "Captains of the Clouds" in August, 1941.  Also note: Most of the filming of "YDD" occurred AFTER the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Seen extensively in the movie in the first scenes of Cagney and the final song and dance scene of the movie!  The jacket is labeled size 40, and the pants are short 28" inseam (Cagney was short!). Excellent condition on both pieces.  There is a VERY VERY VERY faint "doubles" that you can barely see hidden inside, but I found it and photographed it - which means there is another of these suits out there somewhere... but this has the WB dry-cleaning tag so it was indeed worn by Cagney!   Recent comps for Cagney sales from "YDD" are: Cagney's "YDD" Tap Shoes sold for $9,440. in Dec. 2010 at Profiles in History auction; Cagney's "YDD" Jockey shirt sold for $27,500. and Cagney's "YDD" Clown outfit sold for $15,000 both on June 18, 2011 at the Debbie Reynolds' Auction; and Cagney's "YDD" 3-piece suit and suspenders sold for $11,950 in April, 2010 at Heritage Auction.  So.... a "James Cagney suit" (this is in quotes for google searches! :) still holds his value, and certainly for this iconic role... well, you know what they say... buy the best you can afford, as the best will always retain value!!  I ADDED HI-REZ PHOTOS FROM THE MOVIE SO YOU CAN SEE THE DETAIL BETTER!  Click on photo at left and scroll down to see James Cagney in this suit.  Worn at the beginning and end of the movie.  FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

Black crepe dress with open net lace collar.  Button front.  Great lattice work detail around the upper sleeves and upper back.  Looks like this dress may have been used in another movie after, as the waistline has been based up shorter (see photos). Comes with the original armshields.  Excellent condition with just a few minor issues... one leg in lace broken at back of collar, and slight issue in nude lining under latticework.  I'm selling for less than the original 1992 price as I can't confirm the movie for you.  Also  Listed in the 1930-Today Category.     Final Sale Movie/Memorabilia piece.  FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

# 5969 - c. 1985  GENE KELLY Costume Jacket from TV Miniseries NORTH and SOUTH!  In one of Gene Kelly's last roles playing Senator Charles Edwards in ABC-TV's acclaimed miniseries North and South (about the American Civil War). This jacket is labeled "G. Kelly - Double - 44R".  There is also additional writing inside the lining of the sleeve which looks like "WCC - PA Suit - 3 pc double - #19".   This role was for the Pa (Father) of one of the lead characters so that might be the PA.  #19 is probably the scene number.  But I have no idea what the WCC means (if indeed I'm reading it correctly).  ANYWAY... I have a photo I took from the TV screen, and you can watch the scene on YouTube the link below the photo.  NOTE:  This is only the jacket for sale, and this came to me from a collector who had many other costume pieces all documented with matching photos.  If you look closely at the DVD, you will see the stripes on the jacket matching... just hard to see on YouTube or the photo.  Good condition.  There is one moth hole in one sleeve and a repair under one sleeve on the side. Gene Kelly... one of my all time favorites!!!!!  FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

# 5921 - c. 1947 SPENCER TRACY Screen Worn Gray Flannel Vest Worn in Movie "THE SEA OF GRASS" as seen in the Movie!  In one of the movies with the classic pairing or Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn!  Spencer Tracy vest!  This is a difficult movie to locate to watch, but a friend of mine happened to have access, and sweetly sent me a copy!  The vest is fairly distinctive with rounded lapels.  Mr. Tracy is wearing a similar vest in the stills but that vest has higher lapels.  I watched the movie to make sure the vest I'm selling was worn on-screen, and as you can see from the screen captures in B&W, the vest matches! Even to the point that the last button seems to be sewn in the incorrect location, so the vest "gapes" onscreen AND in the photo you see of this vest at the left!  Whoo Whoo! The label is Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer with "Sp. Tracy" and the correct movie numbers. The vest is in great condition.  Fantastic piece of Spencer Tracy memorabilia., or for googlers, "Spencer Tracy screen worn" costume! :)  At some point, this vest was worn by someone named "Yaeger". FYI:  The Spencer Tracy "Col. James B. Brewton" two jackets and pair of pants from "Sea of Grass" sold at the Debbie Reynolds auction for $3,000+ in June, 2011.  I hope whoever purchased those will be thrilled to find this matching vest from the movie!!! :)  Oh, and don't be confused by the coloration of the vest in the poster.  It's just some artist gone amuck as you can see from the more accurate lobby card, even though the movie is in B&W!  :)     FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

# 5922 - c. 1962 GREGORY PECK Screen Worn Mini-Plaid Pants Worn in Movie "HOW THE WEST WAS WON" as seen in the Movie!  Gregory Peck pants! The Gregory Peck gray period suit and vest from this movie was sold at the Debbie Reynolds auction in June, 2011 for $4,000+. (showing photos of the suit shown on display for the Debbie Reynolds auction, and you can see these pants match.. so these were doubles or additional pair worn in the movie). According to the Reynolds auction, these pants were worn by Gregory Peck as "Cleve Van Valen" aboard the paddle steamer when he reunites with Debbie Reynolds "Lilith Prescott."  The pants are quite distinctive due to the mini-check or mini-plaid wool material. The label is MGM Studio Culver City with "G. Peck" written in ink, along with the original label from the MGM auction. The pants are in great condition, with just a smidge of wear to the very edges of the distinctive curved pockets.  Additionally, the pants were hemmed up (now let down) and they were taken in at the butt at some point (which remains), as I don't know if this was done for Mr. Peck or someone who might have worn the pants after, as the waist now measures 38", and according to the label, Mr. Peck might have had these tailored to a 33" (?) waist.  The inseam is 34" (after I let them down), which is correct to the label.  Fantastic piece of Gregory Peck memorabilia., or for googlers, "Gregory Peck screen worn" costume! :)    FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

BETTE DAVIS Shoes

SOLD
Click on image for additional photos!
# 6975 - c. 1955 BETTE DAVIS Taupe Suede and Steel Cut Beaded Shoes Worn in the Movie "The Virgin Queen"!  Encased with Plaque in Plexiglass Box! I always seek to sell celebrity / memorabilia items with photographs of the items as worn in on screen, however it's nearly impossible to find photos of shoes worn under long period gowns.  So I have to rather use circumstantial information to confirm authenticity.  Certainly the look is correct to an Elizabethan costume.  The shoes themselves have the excellent label of C.H.Wolfelt Co. (a name you can Google to find an article dated 1921 of the then 30-year-old company)... "The screen and stage stars and the romantic background of Los Angeles have contributed in a great measure to the artistic creations emanating from the house of Wolfelt." I believe these are original c. 1915-1919 steel beaded toes shoes of taupe suede, and then the movie studio added the steel beaded ornament over in 1955 to create the Elizabethan look.  These encased and plaqued shoes came from the same place as easily confirmed Hollywood pieces, so I have no reason to believe these are anything but genuine. The size seems correct.  The "muddy" sides seems correct to the slogging through mud from the movie. NOTE:  A replica of Bette Davis' dress from "All About Eve" sold at auction in 2007 for $2,270! That's a replica... not the actual dress worn! Hard to find anything from Bette Davis!  Shipping may be a bit higher as I will package securely!   FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

# 6542 - c. late 1940's/early 1950's HATTIE CARNEGIE, Paris, Palm Beach, New York Black Silk Taffeta Gown Covered with Deco Design Rhinestones!  Hattie Carnegie was never actually a fashion designer, but rather her shops imported expensive original designer Parisian models, as well as employing renowned house designers. The couturiers whose models she imported included Lanvin, Vionnet, Molyneux, Mainbocher Chanel, Patou, Schiaparelli, and Charles James. The upper levels of Hattie Carnegie were quite similar to those of the Paris couture houses, where fine custom clothing was made to order for wealthy society women, movie stars and royalty, including famous customers as Joan Crawford and the Duchess of Windsor. Quoted in the November 1940 Bazaar, "Probably the look most associated with Hattie Carnegie - the perfectly tasteful black evening dress that made the wearer look and feel like $1,000,000!"  And so... I'm pleased to present this extraordinary Hattie Carnegie gown!  Black silk taffeta with teeming with bright rhinestones in a deco pattern design front and back. The low "v" back is covered in a fluttering sheer chiffon and lower back with taffeta streamers (both again covered with the rhinestones).  The shape of the gown with wide "petal" hipline evokes the "new look" probably before Dior, and the petal look probably before Charles James! This gown will need the appropriate underpinnings to fill out as you see, but even hanging on a hanger, it's superb! Museum piece without a doubt.  Measurements coming, but frankly I'd rather you not wear this gem.  Excellent condition, just ever so slight pulling/tearing at chiffon shoulders.   Also listed in the 1930-Today Category.

I just love finding complete outfits with matching coats or jackets!  So often the pieces have lost their mates over the years. However, here is this lovely bias seagreen and light green deco floral print draping bodice gown with black chiffon skirt insets.  Very good condition as there is a bit of wear at the armholes (see photos) and light staining on the front light green bodice inset (see photos).  Otherwise, terrific.  You can certainly fix the underarms with a few stitches, and cover the insert with a matching piece of material to cover staining.  Inotherwords... you can make this look near perfect with just a bit effort.  Measures:  up to 36" bust, up to 40" hips, 57" long from shoulder to hem.  I photographed it sweeping the ground and also worn by a taller gal which would look equally good at up to ankle length with strapy or T-strap shoes showing.     Also Listed in the 1930-Today Section.

# 7190 - Spring 2005 Collection BALENCIAGA, Paris Black Fully Bugle Beaded Concert Jacket! Verbal Provenance Worn by Mick Jagger!  I was hoping to find a photo of Mick wearing this jacket prior to putting it up on my website just to complete the provenance.  However, there is no question in my mind that this is exactly what it was represented to be (and if any of you Jagger fans can find me a photo of him wearing it, you get a $100 "finder's fee" from me!). I'd pay more if I wasn't SO convinced by SO many elements of this piece already. First off, Mick hangs out with Balenciaga designer, Nicolas Ghesquière, and wears Balenciaga.  Second, it's black (Mick's color), it's absolutely Mick's "look" (you can just see the cut "tails" flying as he stomped across the stage), and it's exquisitely designed and made so it would have been extraordinarily expensive!  Next, it's the correct size for Mick.. just about a female size 6 and quite abbreviated in the front (as Mick nearly always wears).  This jacket came to me directly from a gentleman in NYC who says he got it from an extremely wealthy woman who ran in the right circles to make this all very plausible.  I prefer absolute COAs or photos, but I'm selling this jacket for the price of a Balenciaga fully beaded jacket... and then Mick Jagger connection is just a bonus at this point!  Note, this jacket weighs a ton! Near Mint condition! Note... just to give you a clue to Balenciaga's prices... Balenciaga's simple little Cream Print Silk Beaded Dress from the F/W 2009 collection listed at $25,550.!  This is a million times more elaborate! I'm told by Balenciaga that this jacket retailed for $29,710 back in 2005.  So that's $32,365 in 2009 dollars (love those inflation calulators!).  But I can almost guarantee you that this would cost more if produced today... it's extraordinary!    Also listed in Memorabilia Category and 1930-Today Categories.

Perhaps best known for creating Dustin Hoffman's red sequined gown for Tootsie, his clients included Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Liza Minnelli, Mick Jagger, Joan Collins, etc!  His crystal sequined bras (just a BRA!) would retail for $1,400 (nearly $3,000 today).  So you can just imagine the cost of this dress new!  Attached on the dress is a hand signed tag from Andre Van Pier with Liza Minnelli's name.  You can just image Liza Minnelli in this, but I have not yet found any photos of her wearing it. ;(  (only wearing a similar "shimmy" beaded dress) Excellent condition... with just a few minor bead strands missing.   Lined in striped sheer silk.  Comes with COA from Andre Van Pier/FIT as worn by Liza Minnelli.   There's nothing much more sparkly than Swarovski crystals (really Swarovski!).  And this dress shimmies and shakes as you move.  FANTASTIC!!  I have the halter straps shown two different ways... you may have to adjust the straps to best fit you.. but that's it.  Small hips on this dress... so Measures: 34" bust, 29" waist, up to 34" hips, 38-42" long from shoulder to hem.  Back zipper.  A few stitches are out of the hem... I'd fix it, but I can't sew, so better for you to take the 2 minutes to fix!  Also Listed in the 1930-Today and Memorabilia Categories.

# 11276 - c. 1905-1016 Liberty & Co, London and Paris Gorgeous Lavender Wool Burnoose with Embroidery!  Killer color!  And oh so soft! And look at that incredible collar!  A RARE Liberty & Co, London WOOL (probably a cashmere blend) burnoose! In a killer gorgeous color!! Check out the close-up photos of the multicolor lace and the ever present large tassel at the back. Wear it longer in the back or shorter in the back... either way works (see additional photos). Excellent condition... The only thing wrong with this piece was the one asshole moth (one tiny hole) and the "nip" from the area where the hook and eye went. Enjoy!!!  Also Listed in the 1850-1920's Section.

#6185 - c. Spring/Summer 1974 Couture Christian Dior, Paris Numbered Dress and Over Blouse!  So how's this!  I found a couture Christian Dior dress from Spring/Summer 1974 - and then found a couture Dior gown from Autumn/Winter 1974! I got the whole year covered! :) This is an incredibly beautiful day dress (I usually prefer to sell only evening or party/fancy clothes as I find day clothing boring... but this sure isn't!).  A sheer navy silk faggoted top and bottom dress with pleated skirt and tied waistline with matching sheer pocketed openfront blouse or jacket with slightly bell sleeves.  Sash belt is separate. This just has that uber-rich look to it.  Just imagine her at the yacht club or lunching with the girls on Rodeo Drive.  Measures:  36/37" bust, 31-33" waist, up to 39" hips, 47" long from shoulder to hem, 30.5" long waist to hem, 26" long blouse.  Zipper and snaps at side. Excellent condition with hardly seen 3 spots which may dry-clean out... 2 on upper sleeve, 1 near cuff (see photos).

#6699 - c. 1989 BOB MACKIE Red Beaded and Sequined Gown on Black Netting!  SAME GOWN was worn by someone to the 1993 Bill Clinton Inaugural Ball As you know from my website, early Bob Mackie gowns and dresses originally sold for up to $18,000.(!).. and this was nearly 30 years ago!! With inflation...well, I can't count that high! Only these very early net Mackie dresses (and costumes) were priced at this level. There were many Mackie mass-produced dresses that were produced later (and still), and often people don't know the difference. Always seek out the fully beaded dresses and gowns on netting - these were lined in nude or black material to be worn out in public, but if the linings were removed, they were the same nearly see-through dresses that were worn by Cher, Diana Ross and others! This gown is the same "Grapes" design that was used by Mackie for the Sharon Stone nude illusion net dress for "Casino". That gown just sold at auction for $13,200! These "Grapes" gowns were from Mackie's 1989 California Collection - a salute to the Napa Valley.  I found a photo of a woman who loved her red beaded grapes Mackie gown so much, she wore it to the 1993 Bill Clinton Inaugural Ball!  Black netting with blood red bugle beads and sequins fully lined in black silk. Boned bodice. Measures: 36/37" bust, up to 27" waist, up to 37" hips, 43" long from natural waist to hem. Back zipper. Excellent condition!

# 7065 - c. 1950's Glamorous Fucshia Satin Dress with Black Jet Beaded Bodice and Matching Bead Edged Wrap!  Are you the kind of woman (me included) who love to have a wrap to wear over your sleeveless arms?  Could be because you hate your arms (me included), or you are always cold (me included), or because you just want to me more elegant than the next women (yup, that would also be me!).  Not easy to find the original wraps with the dress as over the years they have been stored separately, and then, well... you know... things get lost.  But luckily, these two beauties survived together.   The photos tell you what you need to know... but look at the close up photos to see the sheer chiffon bodice dripping with looped fringe black jet beads and black sequins over a "bra" shaped slip.  Love the wide rushed waist to set off the beaded fringe under the bodice (wonderfully assymetrical!). Stiffened slight bubble shaped skirt.  Back metal zipper.  Dress measures:  34" bust, 25/26" waist (inner band is 25"), 41" long from shoulder to hem (with additional 2.5 in hem).  Stole measures: 72" x 12.5".  Too bad no designer label remains, but I'm sure it would have been a good one! Excellent condition.  The black bodice underslip looks to have lightened (browned) a bit, but it doesn't really matter... looks perfectly fine from the exterior. Note: some photos are lightened to see detail.

# 2750 - c. 1940's KITCHEN'S "Frontliner" Ecru Cotton Twill "ROSIE THE RIVITER" Jumpsuit!  Oh my! As you can tell from the label, this jumpsuit was designed for a women and worn in the 1940's during the war for the Rosie the Riviter women in the workforce.  Kitchen's is part of Kitchen-Peabody which has a long history back to 1911.  Headquartered in Canada, which is why this might be a name you haven't heard of in the States.  Most of the WWII jumpsuits may have a GWG label as that was the largest workwear manufacturing company in Canada, but they eventually merged, and later merged with Levi Strauss.  Anyway, I adore this piece.  I've had it in my personal collection for decades.  I'm still not sure I want to part with it.  I have a physical reaction when handling this piece... thinking about the those who lived through WWII and all they went through.   This jumpsuit is fairly large.  Measures:  up to 41" bust, up to 34" waist, up toe 45" hips, 43: long from waist to hem, 16" rise from waist to crotch, 20" inseams arm, 18" from shoulder to waist.    I love the slightly puffy sleeves that are a bit more pronounced when worn... a bit of feminism in a masculine workplace.   The mannequin is pretty much my size and it's quite large on her.  (I'm 5'2" tall, 34" bust/28" waist/38" hips) and it's VERY long on me, long waisted and long-rise so this is made for a much taller gal than me.   However, consider the fact that this was possible meant to be worn OVER your clothing, so, there's that.  There are some tiny, tiny spots, and then one large spot on the upper back (see photos)... it was used and worn... that's what makes it so exciting a piece.

# 6945 - c. Spring, 1957 TRAINA NORELL Red and Pink Roses Printed Silk Gown with Low Back!  A gown from this Traina Norell collection of Spring, 1957 was photographed for the March 18, 1957 issue of Life Magazine.  The exact fabric was used for another version of this gown, and priced at $325.  So, I went to the inflation calculator online (love that!) and here's the answer: "What cost $325 in 1957 would cost $2487.85 in 2010."  So let's just figure an even $2500!  Beautiful "Audrey Hepburn" boat neckline at front and a very low scoop neckline at back.  Comes with the original matching belt.  Measures:  34/35" bust, up to 25/26" waist, up to 38" hips.  The hem is down in this dress, so you can hem as you need.  Near mint condition.

# 101010 - c. 1998 Spring/Summer DOLCE & GABBANA Stromboli Collection Black Silk Chiffon Overdress with Butterflies!  I can't say I like much of the collection of D&G from 1998 as they show these sheer gowns over bras, corsets and leggings.  I would rather see this worn more elegantly over a simple black slip.  Also, these are wore short so I would love to see this with black silk gown slip under that peeks out the bottom giving this more of a long tunic feel.  OR wear over any color you'd like... would look lovely.   It's a simple sheer silk back piece that only closes at the mid back waist/upper hip.  Then it's open the rest of the way down.  The beauty of this collection was the use of the colored silk wired butterflies.   D&G placed them scattered on the garments as if they lighted wherever butterflies might.  They were even found on long sheer matching gloves.  Just lovely!  The butterflies could use a bit of a "haircut" or leave them as is slightly ragged.  Not sure what they were originally. Measures: 34" bust, up to 29" waist, free hips, 50" long from shoulder to hem.   MORE PHOTOS COMING!

# 7600 - c. 1980's BOB MACKIE Boutique Teal Green and Black Beaded Fringe "Shimmy" Dress!  I have had 3 of these Bob Mackie beaded dresses so far... so they must have sold quite well back in the 1980s!  The first one I had in gold beads was sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and had the original price tag still on it... for $7,000!!!!  This one was probably the second generation of this dress (I'm starting to become an expert in Mackie... so many of the pieces look alike, but they were various quality!!).  Still an expensive dress when new!  Labeled size 8.  Measures: 35/36" bust, up to 30" waist, up to 40" hips (37" tight), 35" long from shoulder to scalloped hem of dress with additional 5" beaded fringe. OK.. so now I gotta tell you that the dress has some beads missing, mostly on one upper strap (see photos).  The price has been lowered to allow you money to get fixed by a seamstress.  There are extra green and white beads under the excess straps, so you will only need to purchase black bugle beads.  However, if I take the time to re-bead myself, the price will go up.  So... it's up to you! :)  The last one sold for $2,400 3 years ago.

# 7273 - c. 1970's BOB MACKIE /RAY AGHAYAN Black  "Fortuny" Pleat Dress with Ostrich Feather Hemline! From Bonwit Teller RARE DEADSTOCK!  I'm always on the lookout for these Bob Mackie / Ray Aghayan pieces as they were only made for a few years in the late 1970s. As the history goes, as early as 1969, Bob Mackie and partners Ray Aghayan and Elizabeth Courtney established their Beverly Hills boutique, Elizabeth the First, which in turn spawned the short-lived wholesale firm Ray Aghayan/Bob Mackie (You SHOULD know Ray Aghayan, so Google him! He  was Judy Garland's designer as well as many other stars, and was responsible for Mackie's career).  Anyway, even if this dress didn't have that special label, I'd still be nuts about it! Perfect for your Black & White party, or any event where you want to have fun.  The entire dress is designed of Fortuny-like pleating with spaghetti straps and waist tie... and then ostrich feathers surrounding the entire hemline!  Sold at the high-end department store, Bonwit Teller.  As you can see, it's Deadstock!  Never Worn!  With Original Tags!  So rare!  Perfect condition! Measures: 33/34" bust, 25" waist, 39" long from shoulder to hem. Worthy of a museum.

# 11691 - c. 1929 Made in France Purple Silk Backless Gown with 2-Tone Sash!  Well.... I've been holding off listing this gown because the person who owned it said they believed it to be a Paul Poiret.  In researching, it seemed more likely to be a Vionnet from the bias seaming, the color and the shape with the fantastic long side "tails". But then I found a photo of a 1929 Jean Patou gown and I wonder if perhaps the owner mixed up Poiret with Patou.  Has the same low back, bias seaming, sash belt, and high/low hemline.  Hmmmm.  However, even though this gown's interior seams edges are hand sewn, and it has the Made in France label... sadly, there are no additional labels.  SO...  I just have to sell as a beautiful Parisian gown.  Sexy as hell with a small bust required due to the wide open underarms and low "v" back.   Comes with the original long two-tone silk sash of different hue purple and lime green.   I'm not sure how it was originally worn, but here's an option.  Bows were worn in the front as well during the era.  Gown measures up to 34" bust (small cup size), up to 35" hips, 45" - 68" long from shoulders to hems, 70" long sash.  The condition is great with a few minor spots here and there (see photos) and just a bit of wear at the mid sash (see photos).  Also there are some old threads on the sash, which make me wonder if it was originally somehow attached to the gown.. which would also help explain why the sash wasn't lost over the last nearly 90 years.  So.. if you can prove this to be a designer gown, you win! Otherwise I'm pricing for the beauty of the gown itself.

Worn by January Jones/Betty Draper


SOLD
# 7591 - c. 1960's Ben Barrack / Bonwit Teller 2-piece Silk Floral Dress Worn by JANUARY JONES as BETTY DRAPER in Episode of "MAD MEN"!   YES... this is THE dress worn by January Jones in the AMC's TV show Mad Men! It's a sleeveless dress with matching bolero jacket with button front and wrap over tie.  3/4 length sleeves on jacket.  Excellent condition, but the dress has been altered to fit January's tiny body, and that's the beauty of this dress, not a drawback.   It was taken in at the back zipper and hemmed up.   The material feels great.... as you'd expect from a dress originally sold at Bonwit Teller.  The costumers are the BEST on this show, so they scour vintage clothing stores to find EXACTLY what they want.  This was one.  It was rented from a costume shop for the shoot and returned to them, and I purchased for YOU from them.  HOW could I RESIST?????   I'm a total fan of the show, and love January's portrayal of Betty.  Having stood near January Jones back in 2010 myself, I know just how tiny she is ... and this dress measures:  32" bust, 24" waist, up to 36" hips (no give in this fabric!) so you want to be a size 00, 40 long shoulder to hem.  Slightly short waisted.  Comes with the hangtag from the costumer and a COA from Antiquedress.com.  Excellent condition (tailored). There is VERY little memorabilia from Mad Men available!  This dress was worn ON the TV Show! Also  Listed in the 1930-Today Category.     FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

 # 7888 - c. 1987 CHER WORN for "The Witches of Eastwick" BOB MACKIE and ALAIA Black Viscose Top and Corset Side Long Skirt!  So... this two piece outfit came to me from the same person with the huge collection of Cher worn pieces... many of which have photo matches.  This is one!  Worn by Cher in the movie "The Witches of Eastwick" as you can see in the photos.  I have not watched the movie, but Cher is wearing this in the publicity photos, and there looks to be a scene (the last photo below) of Cher with Jack Nicholson wearing the outfit as well.  I was told that the skirt is Alaia (there is no label other than XS and Made in Italy and Viscose), and that there WAS a top that went with the skirt, but Cher didn't like it, so Bob Mackie made her a custom zipped back more sexy top (of the same material) to complete the outfit.  The top has the Bob Mackie label.  The skirt is open at the one side to just below the knee and then open slit below that on that side.  The design of the skirt has the wide horizontal seaming and the open side certainly matches the look Alaia was creating in the late 1980s.  Excellent condition.  You can see the top was custom made for Cher as it is not a mass-produced finish.  WONDERFUL ICONIC CHER MEMORABILIA PIECE !!!!!     Also Listed in the Cher Category at http://antiquedress.com/galleryspecialCHER.htm  CLICK ON THIS LINK TO SEE MORE CHER OWNED PIECES!   FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

# 11204 - c. 1960's/1970's EMILIO PUCCI Low Back Nylon Signature Nightgown!  Oh yeah.... this is a gorgeous vintage backless nightgown from Emilio Pucci.  I date it both to 1960s and 1970s as it's confusing. It's a 60's print, with a 70's shape, with a 70's Pucci logo.  Blue, purple and white nylon SIGNED Emilio print... not with the "EPFR", but with the original "Emilio".   AND, the Formfit label just reads "FORMIT", not Formfit-Rogers as most do. And in researching, Formfit company became Formfit Rogers in the early 1960s.  But then the logo had a florish, and this is in block typeface, so... none of this makes any sense in dating this piece exactly.  So... I just leave it at this.  You decide the date!  A lovely Pucci nightgown! :)   There is a slight stretch to the nylon material.  Labeled size 10/12.  The condition is terrific, but as you will see from the photos, there are a few minor issues with the print.   There is a pink squiggle line that is seen when you look for defects, otherwise vibrant and ready to wear! I adore the print!!    Oh, you can purchase this, or buy the similar, less sexy Pucci nightgown on another website for $895!!!  Measures:  up to 38" bust, up to 32" underbust, 55" long from shoulder to hem.

#6229 - c. 1926 YVONNE, Paris Gold Beaded Cotton Net Flapper Dress! Handmade in France! NEAR MINT Condition!  Love the label inside this dress! It's a bit light to see, but it's large and reads, "Yvonne, Paris, Handmade in France".  Now Parisian labeled garments are always great, but especially the 1920s dresses because they were usually beaded onto cotton netting (which is so strong it survives in like new condition over 80 years!) as opposed to chiffon which tended to shatter over the years leaving many a beaded flapper dress in shreds. This Parisian dress is in Near Mint condition!  Great deco all over design of gold bugle beads on gold cotton net and an inner cotton netting to help keep the stress off the exterior.   The gold lame satin bow at the side is original (I just love that old lame!).  No closures, just goes on over the head. NOTE:  to get these heavy beaded dresses off easily, bend way forward at the waist, pull the skirt up and then raise your arms over your dropped head and let gravity help you wiggle out of the dress.  Measures:  32/33" bust, up to 27" waist, up to 36" hips best (smaller hips will allow less draping at the hipline), length will depends on your hip size... approximately 37-40" long from shoulder to hem.

#9939 - c. 1906/07 RARE Parisian Fabulous Ermine and Lace Coat!  With the Photo of the Original Owner (Willie Mae Thompson Norfleet) Wearing the Coat! Wearable Size!  This coat comes directly from the descendants of the woman in the photo.... the coat was stored for all these years in the homestead and remains in surprisingly Excellent condition!!  There are only a few issues to speak of... other than the missing crocheted button on the front (big deal)... there is one spot on the lace on the lower back of the coat, and the inner barely seen silk is shattering behind the lace at the hemline (see photos).  The silk lining is in great condition (see photos), but the extremely delicate pleating chiffon trim (which hardly ever survives!) was taped together.  This kept it from getting worse, but it's not something I'd recommend! :)  Anyway, I'm leaving as I found it.  You can remove the chiffon and no one would know anything was wrong, but I'd rather leave as much fashion history as possible.  NOTE: The coat was not meant to be worn full-length, but rather to about 7/8 length over a gown, so imagine a gown peeking out the bottom.  Wearable 2-6 size!  Measures: Up to 35" bust, but the back is a bit small at 13" between armseams, so best for a size 2/4 gal with smallish back. Though as you can see, she wore it open!  52" long from shoulder to hem. Until the 20th Century, ermine was reserved for royalty in Western Europe seen on the coronation robes of royal and noble persons.  It symbolized purity, valor, justice and dignity. After that, only the most wealthy could afford something this luxurious!!  This coat comes with the original photo of Willie Mae wearing the coat, and a typed 7-page family diary from 1894-1904 which describes the constant trips to Europe and Paris... and even times when they stayed with Royalty, and Willie Mae's sister Ada's address in NYC which was the prestigious Central Park West... one block from the famed John Lennon's Dakota building!!  I'm attributing the coat as a Parisian Designer Coat as it's nearly an absolute match to the Parisian jacket I have listed below! And I know this family bought most of their clothing from Paris.  Also Listed in the Museum and Furs, etc. Section.

AUTHENTIC - JANE RUSSELL
Worn for Publicity and Premiers!!


SOLD
# 11438 - c. 1951-1955 Black Beaded Gown and Matching Beaded Fox Trim Wrap Worn by JANE RUSSELL for Publicity Photos and at least 2 Movie Premiers!  Comes Directly from Jane Russell's Hollywood Actress Friend's Daughter (Jane was her Godmother), so will come with Personal COA!  OMG!  From "The World's Most Exciting Brunette"... how exciting to offer you this Hollywood Legend's fully beaded strapless gown with matching fully beaded fox trimmed large wrap! I gotta say, I have the bust stuffed with a huge amount of tissue paper and cotton, and it's still not fully filled to match Jane's 38D bust!!  The mannequin now has an inferiority complex. Also couldn't raise the mannequin high enough to Jane's 5'7" height. There are many photos of Jane wearing this gown.  See additional photos.  Worn by Jane in 1951 photos with Irene Dunne at the premiere of "A Place in the Sun", and with her then husband Bob Waterfield (don't know where), and on the cover of Silver Screen magazine in Oct. 1951.  Also worn at the 1955 movie premier for the Jane Russell and Clark Gable movie, "The Tall Men".  Similar style gown was designed for Ms. Russell in 1951 by Howard Greer for "His Kind of Woman". Don't know the designer, but obviously custom made. No labels inside. NOTE: This gown has had a few different trims at the upper bust. May have originally been organdy (see Silver Screen), then black satin, and finally black velvet as you see here.  As Jane seems to have worn the gown quite a bit, there are many areas of beading that bare, so it will need a professional re-beading to bring back to original (tracing of beading is still visible, so re-beading would be fairly straightforward).  There are about 10-11 areas (many up to 3x4") that will need re-beading.  Many beads can be used from inside the seams.  The lining is open at the bottom (just simple minor repair needed in lining) but still, overall, the gown in every good condition otherwise.  The wrap has only tiny areas of beading that will need attention, but otherwise great... even the fox fur is in very good condition!!!  Interior bodice.  Metal zipper at back. If mint condition, it might list for $25K.   Measures:  38" bust, up to 27" waist (though the interior waistband is torn, so probably fit tighter on her), up to 37" hips, 45" long from waist to hem.  20" x 100" long wrap.  Note: One of the photos is a recent photo of model wearing the dress.  FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

# 4579 - c. 1969 Numbered Couture CHRISTIAN DIOR, Autumn-Winter 1969, Paris Winter Coat! For all you collectors who like to find the numbered, dated pieces.. how about a great Christian Dior coat? Fabulous double-breasted plush coat... interesting fabric.. I'm sure there is a name for it, but alas... my lack of education is showing! Don't tell anyone! The fabric feels like something between a silk velvet and a silk corduroy (though the fabric label in the pocket reads "silk, acetate, acrylic, polyamine." Though I don't know if the label is correct to the coat.. so... I guess if you know polymine to the touch... you are a heck of a lot smarter than I! :) Whatever it is.. its fabulous to the touch. The only thing to mention is that since it's from the (nearly) 1970s, the underarms are tighter than we wear items today.  It was the cut from that era.  None will be different.  It's just something to keep in mind from the 1970's.  It will feel tighter than we expect... so if you want to feel roomier, than you should go the size smaller (size 6). Does that make sense or am I rambling??? :)   However... all that being said... it measures:  37" bust,  up to 37" waist, up to 42" hips, 15.5" across the back, 24" sleeve from top of shoulder seam to cuff, 45" long from shoulder to hem.  It's a very classy, almost dressy coat. Excellent condition.. with just a tiny patch of lining torn under one arm not seen at all on outside (see photo), and one button that needs to be sewn back on (it's in the pocket... I pinned it on for the photograph, but you really don't want me to attempt to sew it. Really... you don't! :) Also in the pocket is more tag info from Bergdorf Goodman.   Why JUST wear a coat.. wear an investment piece!  Also listed in the Furs, Etc. Category

Oh come on!  Where have you EVER seen anything like this before?  You might have seen it in printed silk or satin or chiffon... but never have you seen an evening gown in a thin, silky faux fur (yes, look at the close-up photos to see what I'm talking about) which hangs like gown, and has the original brown silk chiffon long scarf with matching leopard ends.  Excellent condition with the only issue that the lining is a bit reddened. Exterior is Near Mint condition. Side plastic zipper. Measures: up to 40" bust, the rest trapeze shape, 59" long from shoulder to hem.  Scarf: 27.5" x 92"  with 4.5" fur at ends. Don't wear one of those cookie-cutter gowns that everyone else wears.  Sure they are safe... but why be safe when you can stand out? After all... you only live once... perhaps you'll be spotted by a Hollywood producer at your next gala event.

# 6713 - c. late 1940's - early 1950's Deep Navy Blue (Nearly Black) Magnificent Jeweled Velvet Bodice/Vest!  GOOD SIZE!  I will give you a minute here to ogle this piece.  Please don't drool on the screen.  I can't imagine that this ISN'T a Movie or Costume piece of some type.  But I have no idea from what.   It's just TOO fantastic.  Very deep blue (nearly black) velvet base covered all over with red, green, and blue large faceted jewels and a bronzed gold metallic "lace".  As you can see, it is meant to be worn with (I assume) a flouncy blouse to cover the breasts. NOTE:  if you are taller, this might go OVER your breasts rather than just under.  It's great either way.  Side Opti plastic zipper (research leads me to somewhere between 1949-1955).  Excellent condition.  There are a very few of the smallest green jewels missing but you have to look it over carefully to find that out.  The only real issue (if it's really all that of an issue) is that the side that doesn't have the zipper would do best with a re-sewing of the seam.  That's it.  I just don't have the skill or the sewing machine.  I would probably sew my finger rather than the velvet.  I'm pathetic.  Totally unlined and shows all the thread inside... which also makes it feel more like a movie/stage costume piece. Measures:  40" underbust, 35" waist, 18" to 24" long from shoulder to hem.

# 6823 - SPRING 1995 GIANNI VERSACE Couture, Made in Italy Tan Heavy Silk Corset Bustier!  NEVER WORN!   From Gianni Versace's Spring 1995 collection.  Designed prior to his death in 1997.  This corset is being sold on other websites for $1500.   This is, indeed, the COUTURE label so the price is about right.  These pieces are wonderful.  Side zipper, but because of the corseting, you can tie it to your body measurements both in front and in back.   So as long as the bust/bra fits, it will look great.  You can watch the Spring 1995 Versace runway show on Youtube.  The runway piece was yellow.  This piece was NEVER WORN.  Still has the tag attached.  MINT condition.

# 7370 - c. 1930's Merlot Wine Colored Crepe Bias Gown with Rhinestone Jacket!  WEARABLE SIZE PLEASE look at the color swatch below to see what color this actually is!!!!  It's not red!!!!  But I had to lighten all the photos so you can see the detail, so PLEASE... it's a deep gorgeous "merlot wine" crepe.   You gotta trust me that it's fabulous!  I went crazy when I saw this outfit.  SOOOOO 1930's Movie Star!!!   There's no way I can capture the shine of the hundreds of prong set rhinestones in the long knee-length peplum jacket with small collar, rhinestone button front, open at front, wide open cap sleeves, with matching waist sash also covered in rhinestones.  The bias gown itself is totally plain matching crepe with halter "Marilyn Monroe" bodice and "T" back.  Both pieces are in Excellent condition with only a couple extremely minor spots at hemline, and looks like you could re-sew one seam at side as it was sewn a bit incorrectly (though most of you will not care - and it's under the jacket anyway).  So ELEGANT.  Measures:  up to 38" bust, up to 30" waist, up to 41" hips, 56" long from shoulder to hem.  But looks equally good on the size 4/6 mannequin.   Bias gowns will hug your body and make you look sexy!  Just sayin'! :)     Also Listed in 1850-1930s Category.

# 3978 - c. 1926-1928 Printed Linen Day Dress with Pink Linen Trim!  Very Downton Abbey!  If you have a 20's Downton Abbey party to attend and you want to wear an original vintage dress, but don't want to spend a fortune, and want to be comfortable, and don't want to worry about hurting the dress, and still want to look great, and.......  well... whatever, here's a dress for your consideration.  Simple linen day dress with lightly printed pink design around the skirt and trimmed in pink linen around the nice low "v" neck at front and cute strap at "u" back,  and around the armholes.  Then a wider trim at the slightly low waist and the fabulous "scarf" of linen at the back side!!  VERY different!  Add a simple 20s shape hat or short 20s bob and some T-strap shoes and you are pretty much done... perhaps a long pearl necklace.  Measurements coming... but shown on a size 2 mannequin. Excellent condition.

# 5842 - c. 1960's Pucci-era Black Silk Jersey Button Front Dress with Open Midriff!  Please look at all the photos... as I had to lighten some photos to see the button front both above and below the open midriff, and other photos are actual so you can see the colors in the bodice.  I can't seem to photograph this to see everything at its best in one photo. :(   I need either a better camera, or better lighting, or more ability!  But hey, I keep forgetting this isn't about me... it's about the dresses and you.  So, sadly this dress has no label, but think Pucci, Leonard, Bessi, Maurice.  This comes from the estate of a woman who bought the best (including a closet full of furs...and two (TWO!) Galanos sable coats!), so it was good enough for her! :)  Measures: up to 36/38" bust, up to 32" waist, up to 41" hips, 44" long from shoulder to hem.  This dress is a bit too large for my size 6 mannequin so it will look better on you. Excellent condition with most extremely small dust marks (one dry-clean and that will be gone, I'm sure).  Good reason to get to the gym and get some tight abs! :)

# 5830 - c. 1970's VERA BOREA (Countess di Regoli), 376 Rue St. Honore, Paris Black Fine Wool Blend Gold Studded Suit!  From the Estate of a Central Park South NYC Socialite!  Vera Who??? Yeah, I know, that's what I said to myself, and I should know more than most!  Vera Borea (also known as the Countess di Regoli) was a French fashion designer who came to prominence in 1932.  Her Paris salon was patronized by customers from France and the US.  From the beginning her clothes featured unusual small details which made her designs unique. Her sports clothes were coveted for their cool, vigorous, and fashionable appearance.  In the 1930's, The Haute Couture House of Vera Borea was mentioned in the same breath as Chanel, Patou, Lelong and Maggy Rouff and stayed in existence in the same prestigious Rue St. Honore location until at least 1981.  A mid-weight black wool blend (which I could explain the fabric better, but not a wooly wool).  Fabulous round solid and circle goldtone studs trimming jacket and skirt hemline.  The waistline of the jacket is studded on black grosgrain ribbon (very Chanel-ish).  Slightly A-line shaped skirt. Measures:  Jacket:  up to 36" bust, 22" long from shoulder to jacket hem.  Skirt: 28" waist, up to 40" hips, 24" long from waist to hem.  As was the style from the 70's, the sleeves are narrow.  Only two hooks close the jacket front.  Need to wear with blouse/shirt under.  Looks as smashing as any 1970's Chanel suit on!  Excellent condition. Fully lined.

# 7751 - c. 2000's ETRO, Made in Italy Blue Floral Print Stretch Jersey Ruched Dress!  Wanna have a great shape??  This dress will make anyone look good... including Melanie Griffith (as it came from her wardrobe).  I haven't found a photo of her wearing it, so you'll just have to trust me that it came from the same source as the other photo-documented Melanie Griffith dresses.  Some day I'll find a photo of her in it! But until then, it's for sale as just a great Etro dress.  As you may know, these dresses can sell today for well in the $1,000+ range.  So imagine you're in Saks Fifth Avenue and you see this dress for 75% off.  A Steal! The color is a blue with a purplish hue in certain lights (love that!) with black and blush blue/white flowers all over.  The diagonal ruching across the waist does exactly what you want it to do.... makes you look great!  Mint condition. Size 40 (labeled).  Measures:  38" long from shoulder to hem.  Side zipper.  Shown on 35/25/36 mannequin.  Fits her great!  But stretched, so can fit smaller and a bit larger (but not much).

# 7443 - c. 1969 MALCOLM STARR Seafoam Green Raw Silk Gown with Matching Coat!  Worn to the Nixon Inaugural Ball!   I only have a verbal provenance that this simple raw silk gown with matching coat was worn to the Nixon Inaugural Ball in 1969.  I can image it as worn with long white gloves and a smashing diamond necklace.   The gown has spaghetti straps and a lovely "empire" seam bodice.  The material is a lovely shade of seafoam green and has a sweet bow at the front of the coat.  There are only a few minor spots that may dryclean or spot clean out (see photos), and slight underarm discoloration (hardly seen).  And the outfit may have been worn a second time as looks as though it was hemmed up.   Jackie Kennedy would have looked stunning in this!  It's got that look.  Measures:  35" bust, uo to 28" waist, up to 39" hips, 54" long from shoulder to hem.  Fits me like it was made for me (damn!)... 5'2" with 2.5" heels.  It's unlikely I'm gonna be invited to an inaugural ball, so.... I guess I have to let this go.   :(

# 7629 - c. 1950's Black and White "Picnic Tablecloth" Checked Cotton Sundress!  LARGER SIZE!  I love unique and fun.  What's more fun to wear to an elegant picnic (back in the 1950s) than a dress in the classic picnic tablecloth design?  Cotton (YEA!) so great to wear in the heat of the summer.  Buttons on the front are decorative only.  Originally had a belt or tie/sash but it was lost over the years, so I just used a black ribbon (doesn't come with it).  Side metal zipper. Measures:  39" bust, up to 31" waist, 27" long from waist to hem, 16" from shoulder to waist (note: the shoulders have stitching so they might have been slightly shortened.  Still long waisted!!).  Excellent condition.  Should become your favorite "go-to" summer dress in your closet! :)

# 6994 - c. 1960's Gene Shelley, Made in Hong Kong Black Knit Dress with Gold Beading, Sequins and Faux Pearls!  Larger Size!  So if you're like me (of a "certain age") you can't believe these young women wear these skin baring dresses to parties without freezing to death!   Or you need to wrap yourself in 3 pashminas so you end up looking like a mummy. If this sounds like you, and you want to find a dress that's warm enough (but not too warm incase you get a hot flash), and feels like a comfy sweater (as the base is a black knit!), yet still looks fantastic.. well... yup... here's the answer!  These Gene Shelley Made in Hong Kong dresses were extremely popular in the 1960s for these very reasons.   This will end up as your "go to" dress.  Trust me!  3/4 length sleeves leaves you plenty of room for bracelets.  The wide beaded neckline is pretty enough without needing a necklace.  Gold beads and sequins with faux pearls in a "branch" design front and back.  And there are all over gold beads throughout for a little extra sparkle.  Metal zip at back.  Perfection... Excellent condition! Stretches so will fit a variety of bodies.  Stretching, I got up to 43" bust, up to 34" waist, up to 43" hips, 41" long from shoulder to hem.

# 7060 - c. 1960's JO-RO IMPORTS, Made in Hong Kong Black and Gold Beaded Knit Gown!  These were the most popular gowns of the 1960s.  Fully knit tops, skirts, gowns and dresses covered all over with beads and/or sequins.  WHY so popular?  Because they are as comfortable to wear as they are beautiful.  So if you are like me who can't stand to wear party dresses that you want to rip off as soon as can, you will love this!  It's as comfy as wearing a long sweater.  And incredibly, they aren't hot.  This one is one of the best I've seen in nearly 30D scrolls and flowers.  Comes with the original rope beaded sash with beaded loop tassles.  Note the deep "U"  back, and the "Audrey" boatneck.  Will fit a variety of sizes as it stretches. Looks great on the size 6 mannequin of 35/25/36, and yet will stretch much larger, and will also look good if you are slightly smaller.  These gowns were quite expensive when new! Worth every penny and more!!

Lightly quilted, not so much for warmth, but for look. Fantastic colors and design, all trimmed in black. I hate lots of prints. But the ones I like, I love! :)  This is one.  There are two great pockets inside as well (unexpected, but nice touch!).

# 7338 - c. 1960's MODERN COUTURE ORIGINAL Gold Metallic Brocade Paper Thin Gown!  Damn, another fabric I don't know the name of.  I really need a better education. But this is glorious... paper thin and very gold!  Love the empire waist with the large bow attached at the front.  Low scoop neckline, long sleeves and full skirt.  Very Jackie Kennedy in shape, if not in material.  A bit flashy for the wife of the Leader of the Free World.  But certainly not too flashy for me... or you!  Measures: up to 36" bust, up to 28" slightly empire waist, 54-55" long from shoulder to hem (with 4" hem).  Back plastic zipper.  Excellent condition.  If I can stuff my bra enough, perhaps I'll wear it for my Xmas party if you don't get it first. Oh, and from my research, in 1949 Helena Barbieri began designing for the company Modern Couture, where she eventually became a partner. And if you know vintage... you know Helena Barbieri!!  Higher end, lovely gowns with her own label! That should give you some idea of the quality here.

#5435 - RARE Dated October 2, 1929 Black Satin Formal Vest Owned and Worn by CECIL B. DEMILLE from Chas. Levy & Son, Los Angeles!  Ah, if only I could go back in time to ask Mr. DeMille where he wore this!  I've been researching as much as possible to give you as many answers as possible, so here's what we've got:  1) Chas. Levy & Son was a tailor for many Hollywood notables, including found examples for Tom Mix (specifically a beige gabardine suit with black leather trim. Label reads Chas. Levy & Son, Los Angeles / Mr. Tom Mix / 1922. That suit sold for $17,000 in 2006!) and Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle (famous actor whose suit sold at auction labeled: Chas. Levy & Son /Roscoe Arbuckle/ 3/10/27. Don't know what it sold for). And then the eerie tidbit I found from February, 1937 when William Desmond Taylor (actor, successful film director of silent movies) was shot and killed in a Chas. Levy & Son labeled suit!! Eek!  OK, now 2) 1929 was the year of Mr. DeMille's first talking picture, "Dynamite", so I'm sure there were many galas and other movie premieres. 3) The end of October 1929 was the date of the famous stock market crash leading to the Great Depression of the 1930s.  So this vest was made when the money was still flowing.  4) Though I can't find any photos of Mr. DeMille in this vest, the Getty and Corbis photos of Mr. DeMille I HAVE found (taken in 1929-1934) show Mr. DeMille in his tuxedo that he seemed to wear often.  And as you can see, even though you can't see this vest, you CAN see a little bit of what LOOKS like this vest under the tux!  The right low "u" shape.  Excellent condition with extreme minor issues.  Vest has a bit of tear inside lining near neck.  Approximate 37" waist vest. Note: this item has been owned by the current family since 1988.   FINAL SALE MEMORABILIA ITEM.

#5636 - c. mid-20th Century Micro Beaded Purse of Steel Beads with Light Blue Rhinestoned Clasp and Beaded Handle!  Did you happen to notice how I cheated on dating this purse?  :)  I was sure it was a 1930's purse, and then I saw other similar purses that were dated 1950's.. so now I'm really confused and I don't want to give you false information (if I can humanly avoid it!), so......  this great purse is somewhere from the 30's through the 50's and I will let you decide who is correct (I hate being wrong! So I will assume I'm right! :).  this purse comes to you direct from a high-end Estate (relatives of Andrew Carnegie... yes, that's THE Andrew Carnegie... "The Richest Man in the World" in the early 1900s!). Most of these fine micro steel bead purses were made in France (though there is no label).  Always great to find these bags with various colors as well as the usual silver and gold beads.. this one includes ruby red, emerald green, sapphire blue, polished platinum, bright gold and a ground of silver/gray in a stylized paisley motif. In Excellent vintage condition as the silver beads have tarnished over the years to the usual patina (you will know this from sneaking a peak in the folds at the sides which reveal the original nearly white patina!).  As always, these beaded purses in this coloration are extremely difficult to photograph.. and it will be SO much more beautiful in person as the beads appear darker than actual. It will sparkle and glow for you!  The frame is a brass tone, beautifully etched and set with small light blue rhinestones on the front. The interior is a cream satin (mostly clean, but with a few marks from use).  The exterior beading is strong with no losses or separations. The back is exactly the same as the front without the clasp. This elegant purse measures 9.5" wide at bottom x 6" high.

# 6912 - c. 1970's CAPRICCIO Museum Deaccession Lovely Lavender Silk  Taffeta Gown with Unique Open Midriff Ruched One-Shoulder Bodice!  It's surprising how modern cutout gowns can trace their lineage back to the 1970's, and then from there back to the 1930's/1940's.  Other than the removable huge bow (I like it, but others may not), this could easily be seen on the Red Carpet today.  I LOVE this color especially!!! The gown is labeled inside (with marking pen) as "1970's" by the museum.     Gown is in great condition, except for some marks on the bottom hemline (see photo).  Possible dry-cleaner can remove... but even better, the gown is long, so if you aren't tall, you can hem up and voila!... the marks disappear!! :)    Measures: 34/35" bust, up to 28" waist, 60" long from shoulder to hem.  Side metal zipper. Capriccio may have been a store label as I have seen this typeface Capriccio label inside of a labeled Ungaro dress, and also a Giorgio Armani piece.  However, I DO remember seeing this label in my younger years.  If anyone knows, I'd be happy for this information!
