A Hint of Victorian

Click photos for larger view.

Just a quick post today from my Unposted Photos archive. Sometimes I take outfit shots and then either am not thrilled with the outfit or the quality of the photos, or just don’t have time to post them. I realized that I have ended up several decent outfits stashed in that archive, so I’ll be posting a few over the coming weeks in an effort to remind myself that creating blog posts doesn’t always have to be massively time consuming. πŸ™‚

White Victorian Blouse

I’ve always felt the details of this blouse impart a Victorian sensibility into an outfit, especially when highlighted with an antique-styled brooch at the neck. Overall, the outfit is decidedly NOT Victorian, thanks to the pencil skirt and tights, but this is a corporate Goth outfit so I thought the combination was perfect for work.

My next post will feature another giveaway, so stay tuned! πŸ˜€

  1. Ooh that blouse does have a very victorian feel to it. This is such a simple yet elegant look!

  2. Classic! The black necklace is set off nicely by the blouse.

  3. I can still see the Victorian vibe in this outfit, though. Modern Victorian, maybe? Anyways, very well put together. I don’t pull off tailored looks well – you did it perfectly!

  4. I love it! Like gothicsoulflower said, it’s very Modern Victorian.

  5. Very nice modern interpretation!

  6. Looking lovely, as ever! The brooch is a nice touch.

  7. I love this outfit!! It’s simple but the standing collar with the brooch add that extra victorian feel. A perfect corp goth outfit. I would love to see more work outfits with a victorian flair πŸ™‚

  8. Very elegant and sophisticated. Business like – but just ruffly and Victorian enough to also to err on the side of the Gothic too πŸ™‚

  9. I love this as a work outfit! Pencil skirts are my favourite thing ever for work.
