DESCRIPTION: Tan strapless cocktail dress with embroidered ornamentation
This charming cocktail dress has a beguilingly complex construction. The bodice is constructed to dip at center front and rise into peaks before joining the armscye. From the rear view, the bodice plunges below the arm before sloping on each side to center back for a very bared back look. There are bust darts and also a horizontal seam running under the bust line along with 11 plastic “bones” supporting the bodice.
