1980s Mila Schon Yellow Shift Dress & Belt

Mila Schon makes extraordinarily well made clothes and this fabulous little yellow dress is no exception. It is a classic shift shape and is made out of a combination of silk and cotton. I love that you can wear it is as loose and easy shift or you can create shape with the belt. It came from the estate of a wealthy Texan who bought bought bough but did not wear her purchases including this one, so it is in perfect, just off the rack condition. The top stitch detailing on the collar and neck is fabulous. The dress has that chic Hampton's feel that you know always looks perfect and is an easy throw on an go option. Excellent, unworn condition.

Fully lined in a yellow silky rayon. It slips on and has buttons down the front. The belt is original to the dress
