On the hanger, this Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche 70s violet mousseline ensemble may look more Mrs. Roper than a jet setter, but put this on and, viola! This is a violet vacation must-have, apres-plage cover-up that is stroll-down-Worth Avenue-ready! The top is a modified poncho with an elasticized neck (easily worn off the shoulders) that has two holes and a ruffle trimmed layer. A half slip/skirt is perfect for underneath and the entire ensemble can be worn loose or belted for a more tailored look.
Don't feel this is purely for a Three's Company theme party. Rather, it's for those wonderful lazy sunny days when you want more than a cover up and less than a schmatta! Ironically, the look of Mrs. Roper, immortalized by the actress Audra Lindley may be a punchline to some, but consider the attire of Nicole Richie or the Olsens and realize that Lindley was a style trail blazer!

Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche violet bird print mousseline poncho top and slip skirt, c. 1970s. One size fits most. Neck and skirt both elasticized. Shown with Gucci belt. SOLD
