Ioana Hourglass, Maize & Blue Wax
The Maize and Blue Wax is one of our favorites because you can wear it blue size up, or maize side up, all depending on if you're feeling loudly powerful...or quietly powerful. Same garment, different side. Just like all of us.
We re-imagined the classic wrap dress into the super-flattering Ioana Hourglass in this maize and blue print that we fell in love with at first sight. She's the perfect companion for when you need to feel your most bad@ss, whether you're delivering that keynote, commanding the boardroom…or having an intimate dinner for two. You will receive a ridiculous number of compliments on this dress, so be ready for it!
The beautiful front wrap detail has a high crossover neckline--no cami layer necessary to be all occasions appropriate. Simply pull the belt through the bound buttonhole at the waist, on either side as tightly as you'd like for more or less coverage.
We tested hundreds of wrap skirt styles and found none of them universally flattering WHILE offering full-coverage…so we designed one. Our “blooming tulip” skirt gives you an insta hourglass shape AND stays closed while you're sitting.
The Ioana Hourglass is made of this maize-and-blue and the reverse blue-and-maize Dutch wax fabric, is fully lined with silk and yes, there are pockets big enough to hold your phone and wallet, because it's not 1735.
NOTE: Because each garment is hand-tailored WHEN you order it, please give it 4-6 weeks for your dress to arrive. We'll stay in touch with you via email through the whole process.

Instead, introspect. Understand your strengths and what makes you tick. THEN grab opportunities when you see them. You don't need to know where you'll be next - know how to evaluate choices along the way."
