About

From the estate of department store heiress Estela Jácome, this exceptional early 20s dress is the epitome of alluring modesty. Despite its sensual hip rosettes, high-split tabard sides and deep arm holes, the wearer remains fully covered thanks to its attached olive satin slip. Its glimmering bronze and amber faceted seed beads are just the icing on the proverbial cake.

Embellished around neckline, down sides and around low hipline with faceted bronze and amber seed beads in floral motif; attached satin slip.
