How To Wear A Satin Dress

I've come to learn that one my favorite things to do with a delicate, flowy piece like this dress is to rough it up. I already love most things with a motorcycle jacket -- my closet will confirm that as I own several. But something about this buttery soft silk dress in a beautiful, rich mahogany color specifically asked for a masculine touch. 

In a similar vein, I decided to keep it classic and throw on my Docs. They pair with most anything as well, but do tend to add even more masculine energy to the mix. So, I dressed things up to balance it out by adding this 'Dionysus' inspired bag. I haven't mentioned yet but I...love this bag? It's my new baby and I find myself wearing it almost every day, and almost everywhere. I tend to use it to dress up my typical jeans-and-t-shirt uniform, but I love it for nights out too.
