This navy sleeveless trench-style dress is 100% cotton; it was designed in New York City and made in Turkey from Italian fabric. Its salient characteristics include a pointed collar, a slightly fitted bust and waist, and an A-line silhouette -- all accentuating the female form. It takes preventive measures in appearing dull by its use of tortoise buttons, which gives it fabulous character. Another plus is that the dress has two side splits, which makes it easy to move about in. And it has pockets -- a quality I always appreciate in dresses.
This piece, more than any other in the collection, is the one you will find in my mother’s closet. It’s comfortable, elegantly structured -- very sharp, very smart -- and exudes fine grace. You can put it on when you’re feeling lazy and still make a sophisticated impression.
