Jacquard Shift Dress
“Illusion is the first of all pleasures.”
- Oscar Wilde
The thing is beautiful. We’ll start there.
From a distance, you expected lace, but then you came closer.
Looks lacy, but it’s not lace.
Sleight of hand can be enthralling as long as there’s something honest to back it up. In this case, a silky, embroidered jacquard.
Since the 1920s, the shift dress has been well-regarded by elegant women for the way it skims the body without revealing too much.
Illusion upon illusion.
We’ll leave all the other magic up to you.
Jacquard Shift Dress (No. 6477). Short sleeve A-line shift in a lush floral jacquard. Generously-proportioned silk satin tie at neck. Center back zipper. Poly lining. Knee length. In 1935, you might have laced up your best Oxfords and topped the look with a matching hat, pinned at just the right angle. Imported.
