Sort vintage MaxMara kjole fra deres aftenlinje, Pianoforte. Synes den er så fin og elegant med sit silkebånd og broche, og så er den faconsyet med en smule skub-op effekt, hvilket giver mig en smule kavalergang – noget jeg ellers aldrig har. Et andet kæmpe plus er, at der er elastikeffekt i stoffet, så selv om den sidder stramt bliver det aldrig kvælende ubehageligt, heller ikke efter en god middag (husker med gru tilbage på en nytårsaften for mange år siden, hvor jeg havde taget en lidt for stram kjole på og fik det halvdårligt efter hovedretten).

Kostede 30 pund i Trinity Hospice genbrugsbutikken i Chiswick. Så jeg gned mig godt i hænderne da jeg så PRÆCIS den samme kjole i kommissionsgenbrugsbutikken The Exchange på Gloucester Road til 180 pund.

English: Black vintage dress from Italian MaxMara’s evening line, Pianoforte. I think it’s very classy with the silk band and brooch details. And the fabric is stretchy which means that although it’s pretty tight I can still wear it to a dinner party (I still remember a New Year’s party many years ago where I wore a slightly too tight non-stretchy dress and almost felt sick after the main course).

I paid 30 pounds for it in the Trinity Hospice charity shop in Chiswick. Recently I had to pat myself on the back when I spotted the EXACT same dress in the very expensive depot vente/consignment store The Exchange in Kensington: Price 180 pounds!
