Stone Cold Fox: Avalon Tank

"Avalon Tank" in Black

Business in the front, party in the back, Stone Cold Fox's "Avalon Tank" in Black has a double personality. The front features a high-neck collar with button closure, and, a subtle yet sexy keyhole accent, while the back features low cut arm holes allowing for skin exposure. We're loving it styled with lace shorts and platform clogs!

Stone Cold Fox: Rex Dress

"Rex Dress" in Black

This blazer inspired dress is an absolute MUST!!! The oversized fit, 4 button brass closure, and deep V-neck gives this piece MAJOR sex appeal; wear it as a dress, or, open as a jacket, the possibilities are endless. My thoughts?!! Throw on a sexy lace bra and thigh high boot...LOVE.
