A BIT OF DARK GLAM

I FOUND THIS VINTAGE DRESS WHILE THRIFTING A FEW WEEKS AGO AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT (as I do most vintage dresses)!! I LOVE THE BEAUTIFUL SUMMER COLOR (which is actually coral but coming out pink in the pics), THE PLEATS AND THE LENGTH. I DECIDED TO CONTRADICT THE SOFT DRESS BY PAIRING IT WITH A BIT OF DARK/GOTH GLAM.... A SORT OF SUMMER MEETS FALL LOOK. I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!

You know what I love about you?? You go ALL THE WAY IN!! I mean this take on vintage & goth-chic is kind of breathtaking. I love that you try so many styles and you really push it. It's always fun and interesting to see what you are going to wear each day. LOVE that. Beautiful as always!

The dark lipstick really does compliment your outfit.

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

the color looks amazing on you and this is definitely all about the accessories! love what you did with the brooches and the necklace! you would think that it is too much but it is not! fabulous belt, you know how to wear belts girl!

PS i know what you mean about lipstick and the effect on camera! i would never wear my orange lipstick in real life! believe me it is neon! i have pink mac lipstick too, and the effect on camera isn't that interesting either! so weird how different we look on camera
