Emerald Laurence Kazar S/S Embellished Dress


Shipping to United States: Free

Even as a kid, you had a knack for picking up on things before anyone else. Many moons ago, on a trip to Barnes and Noble with your stressed out mom (whom was probably searching for self-help books or computer programming how-to's), a particular novel by Gregory Maguire sparked your eye. It may have been the unusual point of view that the author chose or the captivating book cover (we know, we know. "Don't judge a book by it's cover". Well, we did). While you opted out of asking your mother if you could get the paperback, there are vivid memories of another visit to B+N with your "friend", Kaela, and you leaving green with envy. Introducing the novel as a fresh perspective involving characters from the Wizard of Oz, you apparently sold Kaela enough on the book that she bought it for herself. Not you (Insert petty pre-teen anger here). How....wicked. Who would have thought that the work you soo desperately sought to read would, years later, become a broadway smash hit. It's been sixteen years since the musical's debut (here's looking at you Idina Menzel) and somehow you are only NOW buying tickets to see the show (procrastination has been a steady in your life). While you may just now be following Elphaba down the yellow brick road, you're planning on doing so in some Emerald City green.

This vibrant, emerald green short sleeve Laurence Kazar number features:
✶White, gold, red, and bright green embellished (sequins and beading) bibb along bodice front and back. Scalloped beaded trim along
bibb edges
✶Turquoise trimming along neckline, scalloped sleeve hem, keyhole back opening, bottom hem, and back leg slit opening
✶Iridescent seed beads adorned on emerald silk in squiggle pattern design on lower portion of dress
✶Keyhole back opening with hook and eye closure at neck. Back zipper at lower back waist. Shoulder pads included
✶Shell: 100% Silk. Lining: 100% Rayon (fully lined)

In an homage to Elphie's gorgeous green hue, you don a messy, braided updo with flecks of gold hair glitter, gold chandelier earrings, and deep red lip. Matching wristlet gloves and nude pumps complete the ensemble and boom! You're defying gravity, honey. And, ain't nobody gonna bring you down. Not even Kaela. (But, like, really you guys, the book was a super hard read and we've restarted it more times than we'd like to admit).
