The Anique Dress ! (Part 1)

Cocktail dresses are a House of Rubi specialty. My favorite cocktail dress is the “Anique Dress”! This sleeveless, scoop neck dress features a deep V lapel at center back,and a full above knee flared skirt.

As you all know, I name many of the House of Rubi fashions after family, friends and fabulous clientele.

The “Anique dress” was named after my cute, and clever little cousin Anique!

This dress definitely reflects her sassy personality.
