Strapless the dress’ bodice is criss crossed at the bust to create drama. Spotted rhinestones, sequins and beads are set into the floral fabric to dazzle. The fabric appears to be cotton but there is no material content label. The pattern is a gingham print mixed within grey, white and black tonalities. It would have been worn to a summer garden party.
The dress measures 32″ bust 24″ waist and 38+” hips. The skirt of the dress is lined making it appear full and dramatic. Four stays structure the bodice. It has a sturdy metal zipper. The hem is hand picked. The length of the skirt is 31″ from waist to hemline.
The ‘Rappi’ label appears in dresses that show impeccable style and quality. The label, sewn inside the full skirt, could be overlooked. But the amazing style and grace of this dress could never be!
