The description reads:
"RHUMBA crepe in smart wide-shoulder frock with period puff sleeves, brown taffeta tie. Worn with visor beret in stitched brown velvet by Jean Parker, featured MGM player."

Doesn't she have some amazing eyebrows?
Love how the belt flairs out.
The puffed sleeves are such a wonderful tailored addition:
