Is she tall, and a banana or straight body shape? And love to make an entrance at events? She’ll love the form-fitting, vintage, picturesque Glamorous Midi Floral Dress. Oh, and she’ll make quite the entrance.
Many figures will make an equally stunning entrance in the AGB Floral-Print Maxi Dress. Its unique design (i.e. asymmetrical neckline) will leave a wake of conversation at every event.
