The elegant bodice has classic short sleeves with slightly padded shoulders and a chic criss cross v-neck plunge. My favorite detail is the beautiful matching belt closure with leaf-motif buckle. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust and skims the hip with it's dramatic plum purple and red-orange tangerine color panels. So striking!
