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.

I LOVE the boots... I LOVE the dress (don't part with it...ever!)... and I LOVE the hat.

I don't know how I feel about it all paired together though...the proportions seem a bit funny.

I've been waiting for you to bust these boots out! I kept seeing them in the background of photos wondering when you would wear them. I love how they look with a long hemline.

Are those boots ? Or is it the just leather pants paired with pointy shoes ?? The illusion looks great anyway ! Gorgeous dress ! x
