About

I am almost certain this is Oscar de la Renta as I have had very similar dresses to it in the past, however it no longer has any label so I cannot be 100%. Regardless of its origin the dress is very beautiful and well made. It is shockingly light and easy to wear. I know it looks like it should not be with all that gold and embellished detailing, but the fabric is actually a light silk organza fabric. Onto this, gold lame thread has been woven through the silk in a pretty pattern that sits over the pastels of the organza. The gold parts are down in rows which give it that striking look. The pattern under the gold is fantastic - soft pinks have a touch of other pastels in a watercolor wash of softness that perfectly off sets the gold. The upper bodice is cut into a V and the neckline is highlighted with a banding of gold braid set with large pink and clear rhinestones.This also circles the waist for definition and the skirt is full to the floor under that. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a pink crepe chiffon through the bodice and skirt with the sleeves left unlined. It closes with a back metal and nylon zipper. Each cuff closes with hidden snaps
