Basically milking "Velvet Season" for everything it's worth. I have two perfect black velvet skirts and now I'm on the hunt for a dress. I'm still enamored with the Western Gothic look, so I was glad to see I'm not the only one who's still got it on my mind. Of course, the only downside is that I'm now acutely aware of the severe shortage of bolo ties in my jewelry collection. Must rectify this dilemma...

  5. I really ought to milk the "velvet season", too, especially because it's about to end in about... oh, two weeks? Here in Manila, at least. Haha. You look stunning, as usual. The vintage top is TDF.

  6. Oh, you pull of the gothic inspired look so well. I love the long skirt with the lace top. I remember reading about some kid who claim that fashion ruined goths.

  7. you're slowly giving me the courage to don a floor length skirt. i haven't worn them since middle school and even then, i don't think i could pull it off.

    you look awesome, E!

  38. Winter does have some wonderful but exclusive fibers and weaves. It's best to take advantage of them as much as possible while you can.

  40. Thanks for your comment! I love this outfit - the lace top is perfect with that skirt. I'm so into velvet right now too! 2 pairs of velvet leggings, 2 velvet sweaters, and 1 velvet blazer.
