A great asymmetrical tapered 100% silk dress, with one piece on the front in the "Shapes" print; the rest is plain--though the label says black and white, it's really a very dark dark brown. The usual Maria drop shoulder and dolman sleeves, this has a close fitting elbow length sleeve and a rad cutout beneath it that only shows when you raise your arms.
Measurements: Length 42", Bust (up to) 46", hip (up to) 40"
STORY: I have so very much Maria because of a persuasive friend in her atelier, and I wear her pieces almost all the time. But a few never get pulled for reasons I don't fully understand. This is gorgeous... But not on me. The hang tags are still on to prove it.
