I saw this dress and thought it deserved a blog post all itself. It certainly is a grand looking dress.
So, what do you all think? Think it is the real deal? If it is, wouldn't you expect it to command a great deal more than $525? It is lovely regardless and even if it wasn't a Chanel it could still be worth this amount for a 1926 gown. But, it does appear to be in fragile condition maybe this is why it's so cheap. But even if the interior lining is deteriorating and the overlay is wearable, I'd still say this is a steal of a price. I do wonder why it wasn't shown on a mannequin. Maybe it was just to fragile? I wonder how you could prove it to be a Chanel gown. This would be a great dress to see in person and really study.
Can you imagine being able to wear a real deal Chanel 1920's dress? I'd certainly feel very special.
