Hello everyone. Top o' the year to you. ;)
Apologies for the somewhat peculiar lighting as well as my almost no smile and squinty face in most of these images. The weather was being extra temperamental the day we took these photos, and the devilish little sun could not seem to decide if she wanted to hide or come out and play haha.
Anyway, I have been aching to feature this skater dress on my blog ever since I purchased it in early December, but the timing just wasn't quite right. Though the dress would have been perfect for a holiday party, I didn't really attend any last year, and on New Year's Eve I stayed at home. At any rate, I am a sucker for dresses, and when I saw this beaut hanging on display at a discount shop (you know me), I had to swoop it up. For this post I decided to pair it with some sparkly tights (although it's hard to make out the sparkles on camera), ruffly socks, and black creepers. Lastly, my faux leather moto jacket had to make a cameo towards the end of the shoot :P. Honestly I will wear this dress no matter what time of year, because although its rich red hue and velvet texture are easily appropriate for holiday seasons, the style and cut and rock 'n roll everything about it is absolutely appropriate for my wardrobe at all times. Period.
I hope everyone has a beautiful week as well as a beautiful and thriving New Year. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and read my little blog.. it really means the world!
Love to you all. =^.^=
