From the "I can't believe this hasn't sold yet" annals

I absolutely love this vintage black lace dress from Dusty Rose Vintage on Etsy. If it weren't too small for me, I would have snapped it up already. The item description says that "if you missed out on the Comme des Garcons for H&M line, this might satiate you. A little." I agree and think that it does look like a gossamer version of the US$349 dress from the line that generated a bit of online buzz when previews for the line first came out. It has the same deconstructed Edwardian vibe:

If I wore the dress, I would probably style it with a pair of opaque black tights and low black leather wedges so as not to distract from the dress itself and (in an homage to the COMMES des GARCONS H&M ad) a chunky white beret. Alternately, if you want to lean a bit more towards Lydia from "Beetlejuice," you can layer it with some black lace stockings and bright red accessories.

Here is a close up of the incredible lace bib...

... and the sexy low back.
