And yet this white mini certainly looks like it was made out of a white buttondown, no? See how the gathering at the front looks like re-constructed shirt sleeves? And that fabric is definitely Brooks Brothers grade cotton.
But in the event this dress is actually a dress and not a former shirt, we kind of like it! The simple neckline is balanced well with the layers of fabric at the middle, plus that bold, tribal-themed necklace really stands out against the white.
So either this Manhattan fashion icon is a secret designer or she just has good enough taste to pull off a totally unique design.
