Quilted Rainbow Novelty Print Landscape Maxi Dress
Brand Embers / Cinders
I love a good border print, and this is as good as any with a sprawling, rainbow landscape of psychedelic, bold colored flowers and patterned hillsides, bejeweled with multi-color crystals.
The dress is a sleeveless, tank cut with a fitted bodice and bust. The waist is slightly lower than a true waist, but not quite a drop waist. The dress floats away from the body at the hip and into a relaxed skirt in a maxi length.
The best feature of this dress is, obviously, the print. The dress is dark blue with white whimsical white dots in horizontal lines across the top third of the dress, with interspersed flowers in various bright colors.
The bottom third of the dress is where the magic happens, with undulating, psychedelic hillsides in bold motifs, dotted with brightly colored trees and kaleidoscopic patterns. Also interspersed through out the landscape are bouquets of flowers decorated with sparkling rainbow crystals.
Dress is unlined with a nylon coil center back zipper.
Unofficially, I swear I've had a similar dress in the same fabric, but in a different design to the bodice, and it was a Malcolm Starr dress (I can't recall if it was a Rizkallah or an Elinor Simmons, but if I were a betting woman, my money would be on Elinor Simmons)
