This dress, with its bold red and black snakeskin pattern, brings to mind the novel, Heart of Darkness. It just fits!
Dress: 4.collective Cobra Lurex Jacquard Knit Fit-And-Flare Dress
I could only find the dress at Saks Off Fifth, but here's a similar style available on Bluefly.com.
Shoes: Prada Leather Cutout Ankle Booties (no longer available)
I bought today's dress for a steal on the discount site, RueLaLa.com. I recently introduced my friend, Elizabeth, to the site, and she's already hooked, calling me the devil for sending it to her in the first place. It's easy to shop when sites like RueLaLa.com serve up designer goods at bargain basement prices... and only give you a few days to purchase each item. If you don't purchase within the time limit, you could miss out. The limited time offer angle, plus the great sales, make it very addictive!
