(High Springs, FL)
I was just wondering if any one would know about a dress that i found from my moms stuff. it is a Oscar le da Renta forever wedding collection. it is pink with little pearls inlaid.I think it is from the 1970's i have some munber on it. I was just wondering if anyone would know around how much it might be worth? Please help me.
PS I can send pictures if it would help.
It depends on very many things: condition, size, original tags, material, when produced etc. etc.
The good news is that Oscar De La Renta is a very respectable brand especially among the vintage lovers.
Price for a vintage occasional dress can reach 10&mdash15 Thousands US$ (£8&mdash10 thousands).
What is very valuable for items like that is whether it was previously worn, is there an original packaging; the condition or the dress is very important as I've already mentioned.
Take into consideration, in both cases if it's been lovingly worn for many years and even if it's been a brand new dress stored in an original box, it still may have flows because of it's age, DON'T RESTORE IT YOURSELF, you may reduce a potential value significantly. It will be very wise to give it to a professional vintage shop (sometimes they auctions have contracts with such).
Please send some pictures, it will be easier to advise.
