Wearing a suede dress in the heat wasn't as bad as I thought. I wanted to wear this dress so badly and I have to say that I felt perfectly cool wearing it. I paired it with a gothic looking choker and chain bag. I also wore some new shoes I snagged on sale. I can't get enough of platform sandals. They are the most comfortable on my feet and I love the seventies style. I adore the all black look against the green vines.
