"An iconic species from the Galápagos and only found on these remote islands. They are the largest living tortoise species in the world and are highly vulnerable to extinction. Giant tortoises are the longest-lived of all vertebrates, averaging over 100 years. The oldest of these gentle giants on record lived to be 152."

It’s hard to beat a Cynthia dress. She looks consistently fabulous in all shapes, sizes and ages, so it’s not surprising that she’s a best seller. 

Not only does Cynthia fit like a dream but she also offers two looks in one. Her mandarin collar can be turned down like a classic shirt collar or worn up giving her an elegant and contemporary edge. 

To complete the outfit, Cynthia has a round covered buckle belt in matching fabric. Oh, we should also mention her brilliantly deep pockets. Perfect for stashing away treasures!

Wear Cynthia with flats for a relaxed daytime look or team her with heels for a more dressy, vintage vibe.
