Oscar De La Renta Ice Blue Satin Gown

Blue Ice occurs when falling snow lands on a glacier and has the misfortune of being compressed, becoming part of the large ice cube as it makes its way towards a body of water. Drag. Pretty to look at though. The color results from an overtone that the OH molecule creates when it absorbs light at the red portion of the visable light spectrum. The Oscar De La Renta gown below is not in fact crafted out of blue ice (though if anyone could . . .) but rather ice blue . . . satin and features a lingerie inspired interior boned bodice (to keep the twins at full attention) delicate greco-roman halter tie around the neck and in the rear at the ribcage. In a size 6, retailed for $2950 and in mint condition! Priced at $1250. For further information or to purchase, please contact:

Oscar De La Renta Black & White Evening Gown

Truman Capote first hosted his legendary "Black & White Ball" on November 28, 1966 in honor of Washington Post publisher, Katherine Graham. The gala was held in the Grand Ballroom of New York City's famed Plaza Hotel. It was considered from that season forward, one of, if not the social events of the year. Nicknamed, the "Versailles of the Sixties", the first Black & White ball boasted an impressive and eclectic guest list including Tallulah Bankhead, Lauren Bacall, and Capote's own elevator operator. Partygoers allegedly heard Norman Mailer rant about Vietnam, spotted Candace Bergen yawning, and spied Mr. Frank Sinatra dancing with his new bride, Mia Farrow. In honor of the Black & White Ball, we picked an Oscar De La Renta gown fit for the fete. Crafted in black and white striped grosgrain ribbon, this dazzling dress feautres black and white beading and black tipped white feather trim on each of the stripes on the skirt. In a perfect size 6 and in next-to-new condition! Priced at $3000. For further information or to purchase, please contact:

Costume National Pleated Dress

This pleated black silk over printed black silk satin Costume National number just screams Carrie Bradshaw. From the top of the Chrysler building. Approximately the first half of season 6. It yells "Don't worry baby. You can find a better Berger at the coffee shop so throw me on and let's go paint the town pink, baby!" Personally, I prefered Petrovsky--but up here in the Decadestwo annex, us lil' worker bees are torn. Aidan vs. Big. For me, no one does it better than Baryshnikov . . . heeeellllllllllooooo, White Nights, Anyone? Sheesh. In a size 40 and in mint condition. Available at D2 for $600.

Givenchy Couture Velvet Cloak

Never ones to pass up a good Sarah Brightman reference, there's something about this macabre Givenchy Couture cloak that's so Phantom of the Opera circa 1986. We love Monsieur Lloyd Webber and this is THE cloak we'd wear, hands down, if ever we were to skulk around the canals underneath the Paris Opera House. Fo' Sho'. Crafted in a navy velvet, this size 36 cloak features a black ostritch-inspired textured velvet lining which peaks out from the rolled collar. In mint condition and priced at $1200.

Jeremy Scott Green Tulle Ballerina Dress

Oh my goodness gracious, we heart Jeremy Scott and we know that you do too. This pop culture wunderkind, who revamped the Longchamp accessory line, reknowned for his wonderful and wacky printed garments--think telephones, french fries, constuction worker boot prints--is not just some avant garde flash in the pan. The man can sew, mmmmmmkay? and design gorgeous clothes that are as functional as they are fabulous. Take for example this deep jade tulle confection. Simply stunning on any gal, this baby is Swan Lake not Echo Park Lake. Dig? Priced at $600 and in next to new condition! For further information, please contact: SOLD
