Received my white tropical dress yesterday & how beautiful it is. The cotton material is cool and soft to wear, and the dress is lined from the drawstring encompassing the skirt. The pattern and colours are crisp and fresh with snatches of cobalt-turquoise blue & bright orange reds, offset with black design on white. Gives you plenty of options for shoes & jewellery. I went up a size, which was a good fit for broader shoulders & fuller bust, but the skirt did not become too voluminous. This design is very flattering and timeless.
