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.

    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.
