This Lilo pic was in the Daily Mail of London about six weeks ago. She is wearing a dress that was worn by Sharon Stone in her last scene of "Casino."

When I was a young teenager, i had this vintage classic dress in every color it came in. I wore it as robes.

I wouldn't imagine keeping it for decades, but, i wish i did. Goodwill got themall. My dad made these, with his talented partner, Mautice.

Maurice died in his fifties of cancer, and my dad went to work for Albert Nipon, but, I am proud of him.

He was a brilliant designer. So many of his designs and dresses are iconic, or subtly influenced other designers, and continue to do so.

These engineered prints, originally inspired by Pucci, in the sixties, were very hard to produce. 

I worked in dad's factory since i was a kid, and remember the skill they reqired to master.

I am now trying to buy back dresses i had by the hundreds, and for free, giving them to Goodwill, and now sell for 150- ??????!!!!!

I wonder how much Lindsay paid for this one, or if it originally was mine.
