Before and After Pleated Waist Dress

No. 5411




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

Oh, Henry.

After the straight-cut, dropped-waist dresses of the 1920s.

After designers have their way with curve and tuck, nip and pleat, it’s all about silhouette and waist and form again.

After you slip into this dress.

After it settles itself to your curves in that way a little black dress does best. Elegant. Just barely above suspicion.

Before your second waltz with the earl.

Before Henry cuts in. Three years and two continents since Melbourne. His timing, maddening as ever. His grin, too.

Before the third glass.

Before the band closes with “Where or When.” (I should be impervious by now, you think, but who ever is?)

Before the slow walk back to Godfrey Street.

Before the slow kiss.

And just after.

Before and After Pleated Waist Dress (No. 5411). Vintage-inspired sheath. 100% silk crepe de chine. Lined in acetate satin. Below-knee length with back kick pleat. Square neckline.
