Notes

In donor's descriptions, she writes: "Black wool jersey evening slacks and sleeveless tunic top and their silver lame coat backed in black wool. It has little jeweled buttons. In separate box is the black ostrich plume hat Balenciaga made to wear with this outfit--very glamorous. Keep coat as I do, covered in a navy or black cover; hence, it will never tarnish. All three pieces. (Mr. Marcus sent me silver shoes for this which I sent in separate box.)
