1980s Lanvin Navy and Red Dot Shirt Dress

 

 

 

If the bold Lanvin prints from the 1970s leave you a little cold, perhaps you'll find this Lanvin shirt dress more to your liking.  Straight out of the Dress For Success manual, a lightweight poly shirtdress that, unlike perhaps some of the Lanvin prints we see, would be well suited to the office.  A classic Lanvin shirt dress in navy with a stylized red and navy polka dot that almost appears like a foulard, it has an elasticized waist, buttons from collar to hem with fabric covered buttons, is slightly gathered across the yoke, and has a cute little breast pocket with an attached pocket square.  The dress is piped in cherry red at the shoulders, pocket and buttoned sleeve cuff, and we've paired it with a narrow red patent belt.  Bust measures 39", waist at rest is 32", hip is 44", shoulder is 15.5", sleeve 23", length 42".  Excellent condition. $165
