a darker form.

This dress was supposed to go up on Atlantis Vintage but I couldn't part with it.
It's a nice wool and has rounded shoulder pads. Purchased at Goodwill on Saturday.
Perfect with my Balenciaga boots (first time debuting them on Sea of Shoes). 
Perfect with everything, really. Feeling really good about this sillouhette.I hope I get to wear it a few more times before it gets too hot for wool here in Dallas.

  59. Amalia says:

    Off topic but if you don’t mind me saying – I don’t think that rug works in your living room (don’t get me wrong, I like the rug, I just think it’s better suited in a slicker, more contemporary, more masculine environment) A Turkish kilim, or some other oriental/tribal rug in muted reds, browns and olive greens might work better, nothing too busy or intricate in pattern either. Just an observation.

  60. Claire says:

    Your balenciaga collection is so ridiculously lovely. I really like the shape of the outfit too.

  61. teenvogrrrl says:

    your brilliance astounds me. the hat! i die *faints dramatically*

  62. sandra says:

    too cute the way you wrote ” silhouette” :)
    I love the silhouette, but too dark for my tastes

  63. Laura says:

    God those boots are seriously fierce!
    Jealous! The dress is lovely too!

  64. ray says:

    if you read any of these, read this: YOU KILL ME!
    i lOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEE those boots and cannot believe this is their virgin post
    i put them in so many poly sets and patiently save and await their ebay/department store pop up
    you made my day

  65. athena says:

    Awesome outfit Jane! I think this has got to be my favorite. And, so perfect for a Texan! Yes, I too hope I can wear some of my wool & winter outfits a few more times before it gets to hot & humid here in Big D!

  66. Sydnie says:

    The boots are adorable, Jane! I can’t believe you’ve waited until now to debut them! It kind of makes me wonder what else you’re hiding, though … :)

  67. samantha says:

    your shoes are very hit-or-miss

  68. drollgirl says:


  69. hermine says:

    It would be great if you’d blog photos of your house! It is really fabolous. Where do you get the money from? a pair of balenciagas is not a random buy for everyone.

  70. Parisgirl2013 says:

  71. jessie says:

  80. Leita says:

    I come to your blog everyday because I just love the variety of shoes!

  81. Summer F. says:

    You found that at Goodwill? You certainly have talent when it comes to thrifting… You should write a segment on tips and tricks for thrifting…and maybe some of your best finds while thrifting…

  82. Christina Chan says:

    Awesome, you are wearing $2000 Balenciaga boots. I wonder how many children in Africa that would feed.

  100. Audrey says:

    Those Balenciaga boots + that dress = ABSOLUTE PERFECTION! So ethereal. Do you know where I might be able to find a pair of those Balenciaga boots in size 40? I see a few pairs listed on Ebay but they are all sizes smaller than 40. I NEED those boots in my life.
