S/S 2009 Black Michael Kors Ladder Back Knit Dress
The striped version of this dress was all over the editorial pages in 2009 and the fitted silhouette and sexy ladder back was a celebrity favorite. The version I have here today is the all black which I think you will actually get more wear out of. The fit and shape is still there and that back just as statement making. Made of a black stretch knit the dress slips on an forms and clings to your curves. It is cut high and scooped at the front and the back has straps of the same fabric crossing the back to create a ladder effect. This basically leaves the back almost completely bare but in a way that is even sexier than having it just a bare expanse of skin. One of those pieces that seems simple from the front and drops jaws once you turn. excellent condition.
