OLEG CASSINI VINTAGE 1980S PINK SILK AND LACE COCKTAIL DRESS
This is a lovely pastel pink cocktail dress by designer Oleg Cassini. The luxurious silk has a sort of sequin reptile print. There is an overlapped v neckline. The waist and hips have gorgeous ruching with bow detail at the waist. The back is the real star here with a square panel of sheer lace adding a sexy touch. The long sleeves have three fabric-covered buttons and loop closures. Slightly structured shoulders to enhance the silhouette. There is a zipper closure on the side of the dress.
Bust 36” Waist 27” Hips up to 37” Shoulders 15.5” Length 41.5” Sleeve Length 24”
Great vintage condition. There is a slight gray mark on the right shoulder of the dress. It’s faint and difficult to capture in photos.
