Another set of grainy, blurry photos today… But I don’t care, because this is my Grand Finale outfit for Red and Black Week and I’m excited to share it! At least the photos aren’t SO terrible you can’t make out the items in my outfit. I did take the detail shot below AFTER sorting my camera out, so at least one photo is clear!
Now’s your final chance to get involved in this fun event. It’s great exposure for your blog, and we all end up with many new followers and new favorites to follow ourselves.
I have to admit, I’ve felt very trapped in the drudge of normalcy lately. As I mentioned in a post last week, my job is always crazy and lately a lot of personal responsibilities continuously rear their heads. That means little time to blog, and even less time for a nightlife: a scenario that always causes me to grow malcontent. So last weekend, we finally made time to break a several month long night club dry spell, and had WAY too much fun doing it!
Today, we say hello again to the red Frederick’s corset I featured on the final day of my very first Red and Black Week back in 2011. As I mentioned in that post, I’m not a huge fan of the functionality of these inexpensive fashion corsets, but I love the price and the variety available. So I decided to give this line a try, and to get the best of both worlds I just wear my favorite steel-boned underbust cincher beneath the lovely but flimsy Frederick’s piece.
I have a love-hate relationship with this Sinister skirt. I loved it when I wore it with this outfit the other evening, but hate it in these photos. I think it’s just too casual for this look (yes, I do have a strange idea of “casual”). However, it does give me a distinctly different silhouette than the skirt I paired this corset with last time around, which was exactly what I was going for.
This club ensemble proudly featured my Ravishing Ruffles choker from fellow blogger Hexotica. This exact piece seems to currently be unavailable, but check out Hexotica’s Etsy shop for dozens of other gorgeous items!
