Actually, dresses that have contrasting bodices and skirts have been around for quite awhile.

About a week ago, I debuted a Tory Burch, who is a very popular and appropriately-priced designer, (Of course, I bought it on a resale site.) dress that made me think of your "Stealth Dress." It has a black, 100% wool skirt and a cream colored, 100% silk bodice. It looked as good on me as the photo in the listing and it's a delight to wear. It fits well. The bodice is made of a heavy weave of silk with a satin finish so, thankfully, it pairs well with the skirt. I work in a very drafty, old building that's been modernized inside, but it's still always chilly if not downright cold. The dress was the perfect antidote.

Here's a recent picture of me in my shameless (on Tory Burch's part), though certainly not cheap (though it was to me 2nd hand [previously owned? like 2nd hand luxury cars]), preemptive Tory Burch knockoff of BeachLion's Stealth Dress.

The blouse portion is 100% silk, except for the cuffs and collar, which, like the skirt portion, is 100% wool.

Don't forget BeachLion, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
