About

This is perhaps the most unique and flattering "little black dress" I have ever seen. Fashioned from silk-chiffon & taffeta, this creation has everything a woman wants. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge strapless sheer-illusion with a peek-a-boo backside. I adore the hourglass nipped-waist! The skirt is cleverly ruched with a 3-D sculptural effect. The construction is on the level of modern-day couture and will be the cocktail you reach for every time you want to look dynamite.
