The mandarin collar closes with two ivory white frog closures, with the same ivory white silk lining the dramatic Japanese kimono style butterfly sleeves. The dress has an hourglass nipped waist with flattering princess seams. Side split-slits on each side of the skirt give off the perfect summer resort vibe.
