gothic? maybe a little

yes, i do realize that i look gothically pale in these photos. that's because, well i am in fact gothically pale. it's just not usually this obvious. haha. i'm a redhead, it comes with the territory unfortunately.

anyhow, this dress was purchased after thanksgiving at a cute boutique in my neighborhood--alter. it is from a clothing line simply called "black" that is based out of LA. i have been searching for online info for them but i keep coming up empty-handed. oh well. this dress and i had a love at first sight moment in the store. i couldn't keep my hands off of it. i just kept walking over and fluffing it and re-arranging the fabric. i was embarrassingly smitten. i have just always been drawn to very dramatic and architectural clothing. i had to buy it. as the owner told me "it's very westwood." i agree.

you guys need to see it in person- it's even more amazing than in the photos!!

I like the way it really makes your skin look super-duper pale :)

There is absolutely nothing with being pale! At least your face won't look like it has a leather coating.

And the dress is sooo amazing! it reminds me of a shirt I made out of a dress, but its much less, you know, epic, than your dress!

thanks guys! :)

dianasof: i know, i am very glad that i'm pale and not really into "tanning." it's just shocking sometimes to see it! :)

it's so lush! Which is to say it's awesome! And about the pale skin, I know most people from the Western industrialized world are crazy about tan, but seriously, your beautifully white skin is a thousand times more appealing and pretty than orange skin!
