More than meets the eye

Here at Decades we love a two-fer, and this peach jersey dream is as good as it gets. Designed by Clovis Ruffin in the 70's for his line Ruffin Wear. He specialized in easy light jersey pieces that every woman could wear. This piece is not exactly definitive of the Ruffin look, but the design is spectacular. The simple dress has a very low and wide V neck that has been treated with long strips of fabric coming off of the bust. Now for the fun part, the straps can be wrapped and tied in any way that your little heart desires. The styles that can be created are limited only by ones imagination. The pictures below show three different styles that we were able to come up with in about five minutes. If you would like to learn more about Mr. Ruffin click here.
