Excellent vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! The metallic gold is still so shiny that it looks like it was screen printed yesterday! The original waterfall shoulder train it would have come with separated from the dress years ago, but the buttons (not original) are still there if you ever find the coordinating train or have one in a coordinating color custom made for it! Either way, this dress is a S-T-U-N-N-E-R!! Heads will turn!
