Day 2 is here!
It’s a bit early in the week to reveal an evening gown, but I have something even better planned for the grand finale. 😉
Last year I featured a red evening gown with black accessories. This year’s gown isn’t as fancy, but is a bit more vampy in red and black, with my very favorite red necklace!
I bought this gown in the prom section of a mall store a while back for a formal Goth event. Prom time is a great opportunity to stock up in affordable formal attire. Sure, most prom dresses are hideous, but there is usually a handful out there that are actually elegant and sophisticated. And since the prices are right, I don’t feel bad wearing a dress like this out to a nightclub. Some of my club outfits actually cost more than this dress.
I had bangs all through high school and college and I’ve been toying with the idea of returning to them. I couldn’t seem to commit so I decided to buy a fake set! They were a mile too long, so in a moment of whimsy I had Mr. Kitty trim them into a vampy v shape. I have to say I felt a bit costumey wearing these bangs, maybe just because it’s such a drastically different look on me. I do plan to try them out again sometime… Maybe I’ll enjoy them more when I’m a little bit used to them.
The necklace was a gift from Mr. Kitty for my 33rd birthday. I only remember the year because it was my first birthday after we met. I had spied this beautiful piece in a high-end Goth shop on Melrose at some point and he snuck back to buy it for me. That’s when I realized how amazingly thoughtful he is!
