Labels: only a size tag remains
Fiber/Care: no tag, burn test says rayon but it's smooth and soft as silk, dry-clean
Condition: a few minor glitches. small breaks in the left sleeve chiffon is not noticeable while worn. a few small spots here and there, as shown. the front part of the belt shows wear. Dress presents as perfect and you have to inspect closely to find the flaws, but we've adjusted the price because they're there.
*We've had this dress professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
