This is another one of those dresses that doesn’t look on me like I want it to look in my head.
I picture it as a slither of silk, perfectly fitted, but this is the sort of dress that doesn’t love lumps and bumps, and looks pretty unforgiving.
If you can pull it off, though, then this has a beautifully understated 1940s feel. Teamed with gold peep toes and loose waves it’s so Hollywood Golden Age. I’d imagine a fur draped casually over a shoulder for lunch with an agent.
