I love everything about this dress. Designed by Arthur Karvan, it is cut beautifully — look at the wonderfully wide boat neck and fitted high shirred waist, which together is so flattering for any figure type. The super large, wild print (waves on the night sea) is a handcrafted textile of 100% cotton. The whole thing is feminine and flirty and the kind of dress that makes you feel attractive. And as if that weren’t enough it’s a fair trade piece and hand sewn. Picture this at a holiday event, with black tights and boots or heels. A great dress. Fair trade cotton Batik ‘Bali Shadows’ dress, $83.
