Chanel Yellow Chiffon High Slit Dress

About

This is an adorable dress by Chanel Boutique. Made of sunny yellow crepe, its playful design is flattering, yet far from your run-of-the-mill occasion dress. The hem is cut in a sharp angle from above the left knee to just above the right ankle, ending in a fluttering point to the side. On the left it is slit up the side of the thigh to the top of the hip, where it is drawn together by a line of perfect self-fabric buttons. Despite this daring feature, the dress avoids a racy feel with its sophisticated and darling details, such as the delicately pleated bust section, the wide black satin sash, and the criss-crossed straps. Two bands inside the dress take pressure off the closure and show the high degree of care put into the garment's construction. This charming dress is versatile and interesting, and will bring warmth to any occasion. This delicious dress is wearable both with and without the straps. The straps are made from the same silk as the lining and look to have been previously removed and hand stitched back in. There are two internal hooks and stays to keep this dress in place which is one of the reasons we believe it is meant to be strapless. This dress is a rare larger size and would most likely fit up to an American 8. You better be ready to work those gams though as this slit comes nearly all the way up to the waist! Va-voom. Karl has kept it classy though with the playful color and luscious silk satin bow.
