A simple black dress is always a staple in the closets of most women. This is a simple black, classy dress. In excellent condition with no tears, rips, odors or stains. It is sleeveless with a V neck. A size 12, it is a nice fabric and lined. May have been worn once. There is so much one can do with a simple black dress. Accessorize. Scarfs, jewelry, belts. KIS. Perfect for most dress up events. Note: there is not a spot on the dress as it shows in a picture. Sun spot, but not on dress.
Pre-owned by Charlotte Bookout, wife of James Bookout, who was the FBI agent that interviewed Lee Harvey Oswald after President Kennedy was assassinated. At the Estate event, James Bookouts' items were too expensive so I raided the closets of his wife, Charlotte, instead. Last I looked she was still alive. She had style and organized her 4 full closets by size! They traveled worldwide. Some of her clothes were from the faraway places in which she traveled. Pictures of the Bookouts graced the walls. Showing some of their distant destinations.
There is a conspiracy theory that James Bookout is really the shooter that killed Oswald, in the Dallas Police Basement, and not Ruby. But that's another story.
38" Bust 36" waist 40" length 15" across shoulders
My Mannequin doesn't show this well because she is a size 6.
Charlotte Bookout had a closet for her size 6's, one for Size 8's, one for her 10's and another for size 12's. Perhaps Oprah can relate. I'm a bit guilty as well, but I only have one closet! I tried this on and it looks much nicer when it is filled out. The pictures do no justice to it. It is curvy and accents the waist. Very flattering. A lovely dress with label of Garfield Marks and Made in USA. Well made.
