Her V shaped neckline is framed by a pointed collar and a key hole feature that fastens in a band edged to either side with decorative gold toned buttons. Her simple shoulder line sets off the short length sleeves edged with turned up cuffs . Her fitted bodice is accented by gold central button fastenings, that draw the eye to the cinched in waistline, accented by a matching silk belt. Her timeless skirt-line is set off by two front pockets, with tiered details along each collar.
