Shimmering silver, textured velvet dress. Modest high neckline trimmed with black rope. Front center zipper closure with a silk tassel pull that can be used to make the modest neckline much more daring. Loose natural waistline and pockets at the hips. Long sleeves and lightly padded shoulders.

Based on the brand, I believe this was initially intended as a housecoat, but it could absolutely be worn as a dress. Pair it with chunky boots and a cropped moto jacket for a modern look.
