A palette of bright African cotton in crazy patterns + fabulous design with fitted bust and flare that swings = a dress that's fresh, zingy, full of attitude, and yet comfortable as the day is long. We wear them throughout the day here, in fact, and never tire of their zip. A sure pick-me-up when you're down, or on a rainy day. Feel-good fashion at its finest.
This one: Dolce Vita.
