New old stock still wearing the original tag. 100% bronze silk sheath dress, sleeveless, collarless with a cord sash, closing in the back with a long metal zipper. Completely lined in a darker acetate fabric.
Beautiful dress with no issues, unworn. The only thing I can mention is one string belt loop is broken. Color may show as more of a gold but I would consider it bronze.
