Got an eye for post-punk, grunge, goth styles of the late 80s/early 90s? Those are the influences of Philadelphia designer Raymond Ercoli, he practically invented the baby doll dress and specialized in splotch dying. The indie rock set of the day couldn't get enough of his dresses, we'd wear them with motorcycle boots or chunky Mary Janes. I bought this amazing vintage maxi dress at a trunk sale from Raymond Ercoli himself, it's practically one of a kind. It's in excellent condition, looks like new - partly because it's so well-designed using top-notch fabric, and partly because I took good care of it.

The top is medium-weight stretch cotton with a scoop neck. The empire waist skirt is reflective white-gold fabric (aka champagne) with a texture that catches the light, and it's over-dyed with shades of green in random splotches. The skirt is intended to be krinkly, in fact even though you can tumble dry, I recommend that after washing, while still wet, you twist the skirt and fold it a time or two, maybe even tie it with strings (not too tight, you want it to dry) - experiment to find your favorite look but whatever you do DO NOT IRON, it would ruin the effect.

The tag says "one size fits all" but I'd say that small-to-medium is best, probably anyone from size 4 through size 8(S) could work it, the stretchy top and flowy skirt flatter many body types. From collar-bone to hem, it's 51" long, you might need heels - for the ultimate look of the early 90s, go chunky!

Grab this while you can, you won't ever see another one like it.
