This is from La Redoute, which I haven't checked for a while. I went there because I was starved for a summer dress that wasn't completely sleeveless, and I figured–aha! The French, they would understand that the woman of a certain age, ahem, perhaps would want a dress of a more mature sensibility, without sacrificing any allure.
This one isn't entirely besleeved, and it has about a football field's worth of décolleté in the front, but, c'mon, you have to admit it's really gorgeous — not "cute," but gorgeous. It also comes in black, but I think it's more unexpected in this deep blue. I think you could wear it with cream-colored wedge espadrilles, or nice flat brown leather sandals, and be chic either way. I don't like the ribbon around her neck, and I do understand that the picture makes it seem as if the guy behind her is frog-marching her to what must be either an amusement park or an interrogation chamber (not clear from the look on her face). I like the voile trim around the neck, and the fact that it seems to be a generous wrap, not a stingy one. There's nothing worse than a stingy wrap.
