The simple elegance of the gin rickey inspired us to create an all seasons look that’s as effortless as it is classic. Refreshingly vibrant, the timeless appeal of the Green Beverly Knit Dress is perfectly complemented with the Baby Green Sparkle Kiss Lock Coin Purse and the Black and Baby Green Sparkle Mini Atomic Tote. Finish your ensemble with the Yellow Rose Stud Earrings.
