Depression Era early 1930s Dress

This is a very elegant, classic, early 1930s dress that is in great condition considering how old it is!
Lovely long sleeves with matching fabric covered buttons that snap with a single snap. The back is constructed similarly, with sewn on faux buttons and a single snap at the back of the neck. A simple frill at the neck.

Luxurious Christian Dior Robe

This oversized Christian Dior robe is so soft and luxurious, I almost want to keep it to myself! I believe it’s from the early 80s because of the tag and that it was found with a bunch of other clothing from that period.

As you can see, it’s dark blue and made of polyester and nylon. The “D” for Dior is embroidered on the left cuff.

Sporty pink button up German label dress – BBW – L – XL sized

What a classic dress! You will get complimented on the unique lavender and pink buttons for sure. The accenting indigo and dark pink stitching matches the buttons, and adds those little details that you don’t often see in clothing nowadays. There’s sewn in loops if you want to wear a belt with this dress, though it’ll be fine without one.
No major rips or flaws; as pictured, the top part of the right sleeve appears to have some dirt or markings on it, but I’ve not tried to wash or get those out. This dress is in great wearable condition.

The outer label says “Futterstoff: 100% Acetate, Zu behandelin Wie oberstoff.” … with the American size 20.
The inner label says Qiana von DuPont 100% Polyamid.

I cannot identify the logo, but am guessing it’s German.

Lavender linen summer dress with pretty embroidery on front – Small – Medium sized

Light medium lavender purple dress with lovely embroidery accent on the front. The woven fabric is really nice!
I’ve NOT tried washing it, so don’t know if these stains will come out. You could probably remove or replace the buttons. As you can see, it also has some fading or deodorant under the arms, which shouldn’t be noticeable when wearing it.
It zips up the back with a purple zipper and has an ILGW tag inside.

Rhinestone buttoned 1950s June Cleaver style dress – with matching cuff links

This breezy, beautiful spring dress is just amazing!
It buttons up the front with rhinestone buttons, and zips up the side with a metal zipper for an extra smooth waist.
The gauze is pleated and overlays a satiny lining (I believe it to be Charmeuse, as it’s shiny on one side and dull on the back).
Somehow, the matching rhinestone cufflinks have survived intact. In the picture of the side zipper, I straight pinned a cufflink, so you can see it better. The top button appears to be missing its rhinestone.
