Gorgeous 1990s Yves Saint Laurent Black Cotton Wrap Dress w White Faceted Square Buttons

This a great little black dress by Yves Saint Laurent. I love that to wear it you just slip your arms through the straps and the it just wraps around you and buttons in place to close.  This wraps it around your curves in the most fantastic way. The fabric is a black cotton that is heavy enough to give the dress some structure. At the front the wrap creates a deep V and the top payer creates a curve of fabric that runs past the nipped in waist and over to the side of the hip. The straps are wide and gathered into where they attach to the top. The curve over each shoulder and dip down the back to meet in the middle. This leaves most of your upper back exposed and bare. The skirt chic pencil silhouette.. I love the bold square cut white buttons with their faceted finish at their tops. These are what keep the dress in place and act as an anchor to the straps at the front end at the back. On the side opposite to where it buttons there is a slash pockets on the one hip. This not only adds an easy feel to the dress when you are wearing it but also adds to the illusion of more shape and balances the curve created by the buttons on the other side. This slight flare at the top help give the hips a bit of an hourglass feel. Everything about the cut of the dress is done to highlight the curves of the body. It is wonderful. Excellent condition
