Description

Woman wearing a schoolgirl-inspired dress with an exaggerated drop waist that forms a pleated skirt starting above the knees and extending to just above the ankles. The two-toned dress also includes an oversized chelsea collar, oversized pointed tie, flap pockets at the bottom of the hips, and what appears to be three-quarter length dolman sleeves. The woman also holds a pair of short gloves and wears a slanted beret and pointed pumps. This image was presumably used for one of the many department store advertisements that were illustrated by Greenhill.
