Lisa Meril Net and Tassel Dress
Brand Lisa Meril
It's not every day I find a Lisa Meril dress with such unique details and made of the slinkiest of slinky fabrics.
The dress has a crew neck with fabulous cut-out portion with an inset of black net. The net stretch from the neck to the bust line and is lined with a beige flesh toned panel. A row of tassels decorates the seam where the net meets slinky poly.
From the bust, the dress is finely tailored, hugging the chest, waist and above the hip. From the below the hip, the dress flairs out into a trumpet skirt that hits at about the ankle.
This demonstrates that a simple, somewhat pedestrian dress, peppered with a few thoughtful, unique details can really take it from unexciting, to a piece that makes me swoon. I keep reimagining what this dress would be with out the top 1/4 and truthfully, it would be a finely tailored "nothing special."
Dress is unlined, except for the neck portion. The netting is backed with a sheer, fine mesh.
