The dress in the first picture is wearable, but not with socks and not with those shoes! I need another idea instead ...
Yes, on this I agree: That's my favorite piece of the collection, but I'd never wear it with such shoes either! On the other hand, a appreciable amount mis-matching garments and odd combinations is a stylemark of this designer.
Why don't we take a look at womens clothing? There are a lot of shoes for this dress. But I see a problem: http://www.thegirlinside.com/tg/why-dont-men-wear-dresses/
That's probably what I would do if I were to wear that tunic (after all, I've got all my shoes from that section of the store!). As for the article, I found it rather positive: "Once men and women are truly equals, a man in a dress will be no big deal." So true!
