About

This is such a romantic and dramatic cocktail-length sundress from the iconic "Ceil Chapman" designer label. Perfect for any upcoming spring or summer party; you can't help but feel feminine in this beauty! The garment is fashioned from a vibrant watercolor rose-garden floral polished-cotton. The bodice is an exquisite heavily-sculptured, boned, slight off-shoulder ruched design. A nipped-waist full swing-skirt finishes this garment off with a perfect "new look" silhouette. Ceil Chapman is often said to be Marilyn Monroe's favorite designer and I can totally see why. This dress is flirty and elegant at the same time. Old Hollywood glamour at its best!
