I imagine this dress was originally worn by a crazy hippie lady who spent her days communing with Jim’s spirit and growing mushrooms in the backyard. I suspect if it had pockets, I would have found peyote in them.

I also see a bit of Bottega and Halston in this dress. I wish I could say that took precedence over memories of bohemians past when I purchased it, but that would be a lie. Must host a retro-style fondue party soon so I can wear it again.
