DRKSHDW RICK OWENS Vicious bustier dress
RICK OWENS wedge sandals (details HERE)
LANGUAGE brass bar earrings

This dress was love at first sight  Waited and waited, and finally scored it for 52% off at Acrimony thanks to their 4th of July extra 20% off sale promo. A quick shout out to Marcus for the size advice. Fits perfectly :) and is super comfy. It's like being enveloped in a super soft tee shirt. Purrrrr...

Love it? Acrimony has this one in small, or you can buy it from Rick Owens in black (XS, S) and in dark dust (XS, M, L). Pros of getting at Rick Owens is that you have two colors, more sizes to choose from, and it costs $12 less. Con -and this is a huge one- is that S&H to the US costs $40+. What the? And that's with taxes and fees included. It's not that heavy, and insurance can't cost that much! Or maybe it does? I don't know.

I personally like it way better in Dark Dust. Black is my jam but with this dress you want to see each and every pleat and drape. I don't know how many Acrimony has left but it's your lucky day if you're a small. Oh, and I do recommend sizing down if you haven't a lot going on up top. I usually take IT40 (S) but I got the XS as advised by Marcus. Because it's a long dress, but more importantly you want it to fit tighter around the bust. That way you can play around with the fold over part and create these dramatic hellenistic-like textures, as well as have the option of going strapless.
