Pretty(ish) In Pink

Yay! Tons and tons of PINK! I felt in a very sprightly mood today for no particular reason, so I pulled out all my hot pink and black stuff and went to town:
 Black t-shirt-Savers
Pink cami-Forever 21
Pink tapestry corset-Punk69
Black and petticoat skirt-Tripp via Buffalo Exchange
Lace leggings-Claires
Iron Fist Bela's Dead shoes-Hot Topic
 Side view, because the skirt is so gloriously fluffy and its fluffiness must be celebrated.
Here's a side view of the shoes. They are so awesome. I wanted them ever since I first laid eyes on them at Hot Topic, but I didn't really want to shell out $45 for one pair of shoes. I waited 'till they went on clearance, then nabbed them for $12 on one of HT's frequent half-off clearance sale. 
I mean, they have vampire fangs on them! They are awesome, even if they make me want to chop off my feet at the ankles. Oh, Hot Topic, continually putting adorable but excessively uncomfortable shoes on sale at such a low price that I cannot resist them. I wish I could like the leggings more-they're black lace, and a pretty pattern, but they have a really low spandex content, so rather than stretching comfortably, they tend to sag. Usually I'm pretty happy with the tights and leggings I've bought at Claire's (and as a poor-ish college student, I've bought a lot of stuff there), but this pair tends to go on crooked and look like elephant knees around the ankle if I don't pull them up every five minutes. They're wearable with boots, but not much else. I don't really love that they're footless, either-I'm much more a fan of plain tights, since they don't ride up nearly as much as footless ones do. I need to find a really good, affordable pair of black lace tights-any suggestions?

  1. You look very pretty in pink. Those shoes are really cool, and I think the lace leggings look just fine on you :) Forever21 has been known to have black lace tights, however they may not have them at the moment. Also you can always go online and order some, I don't know any specific websites though.
