Early 1980s Pink Silk Dotted Valentino Day Dress

Quintessential Valentino day wear, this dress has all the elements that made women crazy for that Valentino look. I love the dots - the white dot is perfect screened onto the soft pink silk crepe base. The skirt is cut to skim the hips and flares out dramatically with a ton of fullness creating those beautiful soft pleats that you see. The bodice is also cut to skim and sit loosely over the bodice with squared off shoulders that give it a touch of the forties feel. Each sleeve is cut wide at the top and narrows to a zipped cuff. The neckline crosses over itself and very long ties are set in at the waist giving the illusion that it is a wrapped dress and allowing you to cinch in the waist. Very feminine and chic. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a pink silk organza through the skirt and a silk crepe through the bodice. It closes with a back painted metal and nylon zipper. Each cuff has a zipper to close. The color of the pink is best represented in the label shot.
