THE DRESS

Sexy and slinky, but also demure and girly, Kim will succumb to all aspects of your femininity! The fully lined, princess seamed sleeveless bodice which comes with a choice of a simple scooped neckline or a vintage sweetheart, also has two very different skirt options - Variation 1 boasts a wrap-style pencil skirt with a curved, petal-like overlap, while the gathered skirt with pintuck hem of Variation 2 nods nostalgically to the Misses dresses of the 50s.
