Stunning Subtleties

As much as I adore the dramatic effect created by the stark contrast of black vs. white on many 20s and 30s pieces, I must confess I am rather entranced by a subtler pairing of tones that I've noticed on several garments from the earlier 30s (including the beauty below, which is in my etsy shop): seems pairing rusts and browns with reds, burgundies, and mauves was rather popular? Stunning in a subtle yet sultry way, non?

They are both lovely dresses, but the one in your store is just beautiful!
