Inspired by Adrienne's fateful trip to Miami to get her wisdom teeth extracted years ago, the Laverne Dress is exactly what you'd want to wear while lounging on a porch, smoothie in hand. Her trip was a disaster, but the lasting vision of laying on a chaise lounge with a big sun hat persists and partially inspired our Summer collection. This dress (and Top) are made from lightweight crepe whose crinkled texture makes for an effortless and ideal Summer piece. Each garment is painted by hand and the bright blues and teal melt together like hard candy left in a hot car. The elastic neckline allows for extra drape, and the exaggerated armholes provide maximum drama. This top floats around your body and gives you a verrrrry South-Florida-Here-For-Dental-Work vibe.
Our tan paint had some sneaky bits of brown that escaped the mixing process and emerged after they dried.
