Vintage Canary Yellow Empire Waist Pleated Dress + Butterfly Shrug


Shipping to United States: Free

Throughout the course of her near year of solitude and peace, the thought of making “insignificant days”, significant, became an approach that Eni latched onto with ease. Making the little things, BIG things. Like, waking up to see the sunrise. A plant sprouting a new leaf. Surviving another day. Or, GETTING A HAIRCUT! Going a year without a visit to her hairstylist, Meg- E’s hair has unintentionally reached mermaid status. She CANNOT wait to get those stringy ends, chopped! Fully vaxxed and masked up, E glams herself up for her reunion with Meg. Because, if you can’t dress up for your first haircut post-vaccine, then what’s the point?

This sunny and slinky two-piece statement frock features:
✶Short sleeve butterfly shrug and pleated floor length silhouette
✶Empire waist design with sweetheart neckline and spaghetti straps
✶Centerfront gathers at bust with starburst pleating throughout skirt bottom and centerback zipper
✶Delicate heirloom trimming along sleeve and shrug openings
✶Back yoke epaulette with front & back gathers
✶Partially lined. 100% Polyester.
✶Made in the USA by ILGWU

Excited for a fresh ‘do with some curtain bangs and fresh color, Eni swivels around in the styling chair in the yellow pleated dress and butterfly shrug. Looking oh-so-70s already- E pairs the look with a dainty vintage gold bolo necklace, funky platform heels that haven’t been worn in forever, and, obviously, a matching mask. Truth be told, Meg likes to snap “After” shots and E wanted to look chic AF upon her first post-quarantine outing. As insignificant a haircut may seem, getting her locks freshly styled, is something that Eni has desperately missed.
