Brand New Black Grey Ant Shirt Dress Sz 0
This is a brand new shirt dress by Grey Ant. Sz 0 with mandarin collar, detachable tie/scarf around neck, tie at waist, 3/4 length sleeve. Pleating details on shoulder and back are exquisite. Inverted pleat in back. It is made of incredible, soft cotton -- a cotton that is both soft and structured at once. The fabric is my favorite thing about this dress.
Why I'm giving this up: I ordered it from OAK NYC this past fall -- during a phase when I really, really hoped I could pull off wearing leggings. It turns out that I just don't do so well with leggings.. I decided, ultimately, like the Burberry shirt dress I listed below that the length doesn't work for me, and I'm not a big fan of wearing leggings, so someone else ought to have it.
I think it is also designed for someone taller than me (I'm 5'4") with more assertive shoulders.
Size: 0 - but because of the pleats in the shoulder and bust and tie at waist, could accommodate up to a size 4
Material: very soft, structured cotton.
Measurements: (measured lying flat)
Waist: 17.5" (max) -- tie at waist
Sleeve length: 18"
Length: 37" in front; longer in back -- 39" to cover backside. Sides come up to 28" so leggings or jeans should be worn underneath.
Condition: brand new with tags
Paid: $341 - I paid $250
Asking: $140 (including shipping) I am asking a bit more than normal for this because it is in perfect condition with tags and is such a classic, cool design and is very right for Fall '09. I'm also having a hard time parting with it -- the quality really is extraordinary.
