[SOLD] Hussein Chalayan Drapy Balloon Shirt Dress $148

i'm finally letting go of one of my favorite pieces... the drapy piece turn skirt turn tube shirt dress! this is by hussein chalayan, one of my adored designers! my favorite way to wear this piece is as a tube dress layered over a fitted tank or scoop neck tee, cinched with a belt! the "shirt" enclosure first buttons down (inside layer) then loops upward and buttons-(back)-up (external layer)! this looping of the button-down-up creates the voluminous balloon bottom of the piece. it's somewhat free-size at the waist and down... so, cinch it with a skinny belt! yours for only $148!

*model is wearing the hussein chalayan piece... styled with the opening ceremony classic flare coat s/s '08, uniqlo scoop neck fitted tee, a vintage black braid belt and black tights!
*styled pieces are not for sale.

  • size: 40 as a skirt; s/m as a dress!
    • bust: ~15.5" laid flat across
      • *note: if the bust is too small, wear it over a white tank this summer and unbutton the top button for a little v-opening! it will stay, since you'll cinch the waist with a belt :)
