Our best-selling Athena dress is BACK & in a new colorway & upgraded design!
This is a dress that lives up to it's name. Athena is the Olympian goddess of wisdom and war and the adored patroness of the city of Athens and since we believe all women are modern deities we created yet another statement piece to leave spectators speechless. This dress is powerful, elegant, and fits like a dream. This version has padded structured shoulders for a more regal look. It has elegant elongated sleeves, a sash you can wrap twice to cinch in your waist, and a criss-cross neckline design. Made of techno crepe, its unbelievably comfortable and has enough stretch to accentuate your goddess-given curves. We believe the perfect dress exists and this is it.

Let's start with the cons. Number one, for this price point, it should absolutely be lined. It felt cheap and scratchy. Next, it was not patterned for tall people and/or people with long torsos. I am both of those things and found myself tugging at the skirt to get where the elasticized waist should sit on me. As it sits, the elastic waist is well above my natural waistline which makes the skirt portion above my knees which I wanted to avoid. I specifically reached out for measurements on the skirt portion so as to confirm it wouldn't be a mini-skirt on me.
Let's move onto the pros. The cut from the waist up on this is incredible. The crisscross high neckline, the amazingly sturdy shoulder pads that give a fantastic 40's silhouette, to the long drapey arm sleeves, I was living. I also loved that, though the fabric felt cheap, there was some stretch to it. Dinner and drinks no problem. The color is also chef's kiss.
Consider lining it. There are other small brands like VV with the same price point that take this extra step for quality, and it makes all the difference. Three stars.
