The story:

This pretty blue thing has buttons down all the way at the back and we love the way it hugs curves :) If you have them, celebrate them! And if you don't, no reason to fret. This cutie comes with some really cool hip accents which seem like pockets but are not (though we think if you just sew them down, they totally could be pockets!) 

There are some really neatly-done darts at back of the waist and the way its structured accentuates the waist while leaving it quite easy and loose for the bust and hips. Quite the 1950s lean, we say. 

Pinned?: No.
