Once upon a time, there was a gal who searched high and low for a fun frock that would satisfy her every whim. She desired a garment with sophisticated structural details, such as a V-neck to highlight a slim expanse of skin, a halter tie at the neck, and, most impressively, a gathered, full skirt with adjustable inside ties. While on her quest, she came across a dress that not only boasted the features that she'd been searching for, but also featured an elegant checked pattern in grey, ivory, and forest green, decorative trim, and a duo of perfect pockets. After she paired her dream of a dress with an embroidered cardi, grey stockings, and ankle boots, she jaunted off to a gallery opening for an evening that was, indeed, happily ever after!
