Gathered Velvet Lamé Gown
Stately velvet lamé gown by Adolfo is a vibrant stunner. Lush and lightweight silk velvet lamé tinsel in a rich royal purple streaked with gold lightening zig zags makes both an entrance and exit with a ruched bodice and extra-long hem that lightly puddles on the floor with a beautiful drape. Covered shank buttons line the gathered empire waist and finish tapered dolman sleeves. Panel at front raises the neckline for modesty if desired. We would wear with a strappy gold heel, gold drop earrings, and gold metal clutch for an event-worthy ensemble. Royal purple, gold.
-Condition: Very Good Used Condition
*Button at center front needs to be reattached and another reinforced (pictured, button included); easily repairable. Sheer bare patch (about 1.75"x 0.75") on front skirt near center hem taken to chiffon (pictured); visible but not immediately noticeable, though we would suggesting taking a piece from the inside hem and patching it onto the area. We also recommend taking to a tailor and removing the triangular modesty panel at the chest for an updated fit.
