details: DELICIOUS plum-purple retro shirt-dress! This looks terrific in person. Classic 50s "New Look" style, re-created in the 80s. Shirt collar; short sleeves; oversize shoulders; breast pockets; fitted waist; belt loops, but no belt; front pleats above & below the waistband; full skirt (looks great with or without a crinoline, as pictured - crinoline is not included). You need a big straw hat and a bougainvillea background, and you're all set for the most stylish summer ever!
