Today’s theme is Black & White, which left me in a quandary as to what topic to cover. I was extremely tempted to pay homage to one of my greatest loves, Film Noir. But in the end, responsibilities have caused me to work on this post at the last minute, so going with an outfit post seemed the safest option. Thankfully, I recently put together a club outfit that fits the theme just perfectly!
This was my first time coming up with an outfit based on this jacquard fishtail skirt. I don’t usually go “tucked in” for evening looks, but I didn’t want to hide a single detail of the beautiful skirt. I was very pleased with the results, and received some amazing compliments on the dancefloor! I’ve seen this skirt for sale under several different labels, so I’m not going to cite a brand or a distributor… But you can easily find this online on many Gothic retailers’ websites.
This blouse is another dreaded stretch lace creation. However, this one was a steal on eBay, so it’s no loss if it doesn’t stand the test of time. Plus, no one is likely to notice a few tiny elastic threads fraying at the seams of a white top (unlike the dark purple top in my last post). In a dark a nightclub, it will be even less obvious, so I should get a fair amount of use out of this.
I’m a bit brain-dead from work tonight, which leaves my writing skills somewhat lacking. So I will now leave it up to you to share your Black & White posts!
