Black Lace and Cabernet

Apologies for my absence, but it's been so hot here that I've lacked both spectacular outfits and the ambition to blog about them. :) I've got today and tomorrow to make up for it, though! I was definitely feeling more ele-Goth today, so I picked out some of my prettiest (but lightest and most temperature-appropriate) duds and went to town-both literally and figuratively. 
Necklace-Hobby Lobby
Black lace camisole with nude lining-Savers
Black taffeta corset-Punk69
Cabernet satin skirt with black net underlayer-Goodwill
Chunky black Mary Janes-Goodwill
This skirt is super-awesome. The black layer you can see peeking out from the bottom is actually a semi-sheer that's opaque enough that, when the skirt is reversed, it looks like a regular ankle-length black chiffon skirt. My wardrobe is so packed that any time I can get two garments for the space of one, it makes me super-happy! I also love black lace stuff with nude lining-it just feels so sexy and daring to me, without actually having to show tons of skin. I also got not one but two replacement pairs of black chunky-but-comfy Mary Janes for the ones I wore the soles off of this year, figuring if I can rotate the two pairs I won't wear through them as fast. Since those are basically my go-to shoes outside of chunky Doc Marten-style boots, I thought it was worth it to buy an extra pair!


  1. You have such a lovely outfit, I would love to own a skirt like that :)

  2. Hey! Just came across your blog today, while browsing some corset ideas and I just wanted to say that your style is great & unique, keep it up! Life is indeed too short to wear boring clothes! :)
