ModCloth Striped Flare Shirring
Be whisked away to an extravagant Saint Petersburg theater where top ballet dancers perform to your heart’s content when you slip on this silky dress. As a dapper usher leads you with a white gloved hand through the seating aisle, the flouncy, feminine skirt of your rich blue dress glides like a swan on a lake. Mesmerized by the building’s Art Nouveau decor, you don’t notice the other patrons admiring the sheer, chiffon overlay of gentle navy over a satiny, deep sapphire liner. The same shiny fabric trims the low V-neck, elasticated waist, bow in back, and triangle details on front. With your beaded clutch and silver jewelry catching the glow of the dimming house lights, your heart flutters as the curtain lifts. At last the poised dancers begin Tchaikovsky’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ with the start of the orchestra, and you excitedly smooth your skirt, adjust the sleeveless top, and smile inside.
