to upscale shopping my closet
Many years ago, I acquired a Jacqueline de Ribes dress at one of my usual venues. I knew the name--probably from reading Vogue in the 1980s. (My memory was a veritable storehouse of miscellaneous info. Alas, not so much for recent things). The dress had lingered for many months unsold. So I finally bought it.
There's no size in it, but it fits Miss Em. She doesn't want it, not having a J de R lifestyle.
I first tried to sell it a few years ago. I had read that Didier Ludot, the famous Parisian vintage couture shop, was having a LBD show. I emailed a pic and asked--in French that was corrected by Mr FS--if they would be interested. As usual--no reply.
Yesterday, I picked up an Architectural Digest from the FREE BOX at the library. Newest issue. I discovered that The Metropolitan Museum of Art is having a J d R show, featuring both her own designs and the chic stuff she wore (People with that caliber wardrobe don't follow the Kondo decluttering program--or I guess they love everything).
So here's my question: how do I sell it? And for how much? It's the twin of this one, offered for $950 on 1st Dibs.
Thanks for any advice.
