General note: Dramatically feminine is this black crepe by Mel Warshaw. A cascade of embroidered flows from shoulder down bodice to thigh. The sheer chiffon shoulder drape is caught by one corner at the end of the embroidery. The low, rounded neckline is cut for bare shouldered allure. Battered column and antique stonework belong to 800 year old Spanish Monastery near Miami.
