    Galanos, Donald Brooks, and Sarmi Pieces, Owned by Edie Adams. A glittering lot of rhinestone encrusted designs from the 1960s, we start with a sparkling dress by Galanos in black satin embellished with clusters of flowers in rhinestones and a self covered belt with a playful ovoid buckle. The long sleeved A-line dress with standing collar and asymmetrically placed tuck to the front, has a double pleat center back concealing the zipper which opens to a taffeta lining. The next piece, by Sarmi, is a flowing floor length cream charmeuse gown, with a neck embellished with rhinestones dropping over the gathered charmeuse. Secured at the back with snaps, the back opens to a lined inner dress of textured cream satin with separate zipper. Next we present a pale yellow crepe de chine dress by Donald Brooks, is an A-line design with high collar, the front with inset of rhinestones in a diamond pattern at bust level which is cut vertically and horizontally with seams that are top stitched. The horizontal seam extends to the back, above the seam a series of three self covered buttons alternating with snaps and below a zipper which opens to a full lining. Accompanied by a hardcover copy of Edie Adams' autobiography, Sing a Pretty Song. From the Ernie Kovacs/Edie Adams Estate Archive.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
