Why, you ask, does this outfit make me think of June? Because last June was my first-ever Red and Black Week. We had so much fun with it that several participants suggested this become an annual event. So, the first week of June each year will be Sophistique Noir’s Red and Black Week. It works much like my monthly themes, but lasts a whole seven days! Plenty of time to explore different ideas revolving around this timeless Gothic Fashion color combination.
However, I certainly can’t wait until June each year to show off a bit of red and black. After all, I need the practice before the big event! Here I am wearing a Venetian lace choker with a rose cameo attached, which I showed you during the week event last year. I added a simple beaded red flower to my hair, plus matching red nails and lips.
The sweater came from Newport News years ago, but I have seen that they have this same piece in the Pyramid Collection catalog from time to time. I have to say, any time I see something in the Pyramid Collection that I’ve also seen elsewhere, it’s always much more expensive at Pyramid. But if you want something bad enough, sometimes that can be worth it. The skirt is also from Newport News, part of their Shape FX line that I recently discussed (they still have a similar one, last time I checked, if you are interested!). And yes, it’s also the skirt I wore for my fairy outfit post last weekend. Sorry for the immediate repeat.
So, have you guys been stocking up on things for Red and Black Week?
