Description

Short-sleeved navy chiffon day dress with a deep "V"-neckline, circular short sleeves, gathering along the shoulders with pearls dispersed throughout the gatherings that continue into a swooping motion to the wrap bodice. The right side of the bodice is loose and wraps across to the left side. In addition, the waistline is in a triangle form pointing upwards to the centre-front neckline and continues along the back as a drop-waist. Lastly, there is a beige and pink border along the bottom of the dress that resembles plants and leaves blowing in the wind with leaves blowing upwards across the dress.
