Shop at Brigadeiro's: Rachel Roy, Hussein Chalayan & Brian Reyes dresses

Shop at Brigadeiro's

More Items for Sale:

Rachel Roy Helena dress BNWT US$897 - SOLD!

Rachel Roy dress has wide half sleeves, contrast net panel at back, box pleats, a tonal metallic panel at front and back, side seam pockets, an internal elasticated waistband and net lining with hook fastening. 69% viscose, 31% polyester; fully lined.

After I bought this dress I realized I had another one very similar to it, so never got to wear this one. The dress up for grabs is the 'natural' coloured dress, apologies for the sun on the bottom half, the upper half is the part that is true to colour. The mesh is shearer than it appears on the Net-a-Porter's mannequin. Wear this day or night


Size M (sizing is flexible)

US 4-6 (maybe up to 8)
UK 8-10 (maybe up to 12)

Approximate measurements, as this dress is hard to measure:

Length: 44"
Waist: 31" unstretched (can stretch a few inches)
Bust: harder to measure, as there is no 'armpit' seam to measure from, but I would say it would accommodate a minimum 34" bust to 38 or more, because of the front 'wrap' style.
Hips: free because of the A-line skirt.

New, never worn, with tags still attached. This dress by brilliant designer Hussein Chalayan is exactly like the one in the runway, but in a more wearable fabric of pink & cream silk. LOVE the detailing around the halter neckline, closes with a side invisible zip, fully lined. Unfortunately it has been sitting in my wardrobe unused for quite some time, with tags still attached.

100% silk

US$369 reduced to $199 so I can clear my closet

Brian Reyes runway ivory silk dress US2 BNWT

Incredibly reluctant and tentative sale, as I may change my mind about this. Purchased when I was a small US 4 I thought I would lose the weight I had gained at the time to fit into this dress, as it was so so stunning. Unfortunately, the scales went the wrong way, and I never got to wear it! I am still hoping for a miracle, hence I have not tried to part with it until now (I may still be in denial). The dress for sale is exactly as above, and comes with a 100% silk slip, and the dress itself is 100% silk. Absolutely stunning! Could be worn as an evening dress or even a 'modern' wedding dress...

  1. Hi Brigadeiro!

    With the Rachel Roy dress you'd stated that it's a size M, is that per netaporter.com?

    Please confirm.


  2. Hi there! Yes, the RR dress is a M, per NAP, and also on the label. HTH! :)

  3. PS. I find the sizing for this particular dress quite flexible (and that is not the case with all Rachel Roy dresses)...

  4. If you're selling those.. I'm sure that you have to have and AMAZING CLOSET! ;)


  5. Hi again :)

    I wonder if there is a way for me to try it on before buying? I live in Adelaide also...


  6. Hi M!

    I'm afraid life's a little crazy in the next few weeks (rellies from o/s, Easter, cousin getting married, baby due in 3+ weeks). Having seen you IRL I would say this dress would fit you ;) But I will take measurements and add them here so you can double check :)
