Velvet Bodice Dress


Splatter print dress with velvet bodice by Saint Laurent Rive Gauche that may be from the Russian Collection. Button-front lined velvet bodice with a peter pan collar in lush velvet adds structure to the breezy wool blend gauze skirt and sleeves with folk styling in line with Saint Laurent's Russian Collection. Bracelet-length puffed sleeves with slim velvet cuffs and a skirt with pockets ties the look together. We love the rich, warm palette, and would wear with tall riding boots and a slouchy leather buchet bag, ready for a stroll in the crisp air. Chocolate brown, tawny brown, orange, maroon, indigo.

-Condition: Very Good Used Condition
*Dress bodice appears to have been altered and widened at the bust with triangle inserts at the sidebust/underarm with fabric taken from the sleeve cuffs (pictured); not immediately noticeable, though fit now has a bit more of a boxy silhouette at the bust. We recommend removing the inserts if desired for a more fitted silhouette, but not necessary.
