Rated 5 out of 5Â by TippiHedren better in real life!
The photo does not do justice to this beautiful and unusual dress. It runs small and the short length makes it especially well proportioned for petites (tall women will look more like the model: i.e., it will be short): I think it actually looks better unbelted on a shorter person. The shape is simple and drapes well, but the crocheted fabric (it has a black slip underneath) is complex and interesting, with a bronzy metallic thread running through some of the panels. It manages to be both distinctive and subtle. It's also very comfortable: you don't have to zip yourself into some stiff dry-clean-only thing to dress up!
