We received an eclectic box of clothing from a fashionable woman in Florida yesterday which included a Geoffrey Beene lace blouse/tee-shirt, some ornate Chinese embroidered jackets, and this chiffon Valentino dress.  Eri didn't seem quite that enthusiastic about it when sorting through the box, but I said "try it on."  She changed her mind quickly as the purple base with golden flowers is the perfect season-less evening dress in sophisticated hues with adjustable shoulder ties, and a slit that means business.  Moral of the story, "try it on."  I suggested just that with a young mom shopping early today who wasn't sure about an unworn Marc Jacobs jacket in the style of Chanel with stripes of pearls cut into various seams.  She tried it on and I was right.  That's why I get paid the big bucks!

Valentino boutique silk gold and navy wrap around dress with adjustable shoulder strap, c. 1970's. Marked size 12. Will fit modern size 4 to 8.  SOLD
