I wore this outfit for a shopping trip to Los Angeles. We hit a “real” mall (because our local mall is pathetic) and I blew some money on a few new pieces. I have a commitment to keep my blog fresh and loaded with variety, so I did it all for you. As if I needed more variety… Someday I should post photos of my closet.
This skirt is a brilliant invention by Frederick’s. It’s perfectly Gothy with the fit and flare styling and the lacy ruffle at the bottom. Yes, Goth infiltrates the mainstream again. They eat it up, and never even realize it! Some genius (no, that wasn’t sarcasm) had the brilliant idea (again, not sarcasm) to add some elasticized gathering on the … bottom. It gives this skirt an amazingly sexy curve-hugging fit, rendering it inappropriate for work while making it one of my very favorite weekend choices.

The top is silk, and has a lovely black-on-black paisley pattern. Oh, and the ruffles…! I purchased it majorly on sale from Bebe. I rarely buy anything full price from Bebe. Actually, maybe never. Their clothes are excellent in quality, but still seem over-priced for what you get. As for Goth-friendly selection, it’s very hit and miss but when they hit, there are so many good pieces it’s difficult to choose (even on sale).
You get lots of photos today, because I love this outfit and was feeling awfully good about myself in it. Oh, and the hair was just fabulous! It rarely is so cooperative, and I was enjoying the waves from the previous night’s braid.
What do you like to wear when you go for a fun day of shopping?
