1980s William Morris Style Print Peplum Wiggle Dress
This dress is an elegant, classy piece from EssBee Gold. Sexy without being revealing, it skims the curves of the body perfectly. A rich red background with navy floral and paisley print in the style of William Morris adds to the vibrancy, whilst the co-ordinating belt cinches in the waist for an hour glass shape. The peplum detail on the hips balances out the light shoulder pads, also accentuating an hour glass curve and giving the illusion of a slimmer waistline.
There is a high collarless sweetheart shape neckline which highlights the decolletage, perfect for showcasing a special necklace. She has long sleeves and a back zip fastening and is finished with a co-ordinating bow at the centre neckline. (This could be removed if preferred.)
In our model photos we show the bow on the belt as an alternative option.
Excellent condition no flaws or issues, very wearable.
