The Shirt Snob is not usually a fan of animal prints, but the Cheetah Ombre Dress by C&C California
doesn't go overboard with the look at all. Besides, we think it's interesting how to see an ombré print such as this. There is a V-neck, ruffle trim at the empire waist, and 1.25 inch straps. The skirt is 100% silk while the bodice is 50% supima cotton and 50% micro modal, and it hangs at 34 inches.
Leave it to Velvet to make such a casual and comfortable dress. The Dannie Dress
has a split V-neck, drawstring at the waist, on-seam hip pockets, gathered elastic cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It is 33 inches long.
