"It isn't that hard boy to like you or love you,
I'd follow you down, down, down,
If you're going crazy, just grab me, and take me
I'd follow you down, down, down, anywhere, anywhere."
- Lana Del Rey "Million Dollar Man"

Today's look is originally something I was working on putting together for a theatre event, so it's a bit more on the formal side. Obviously an evening piece.
The outfit required some tailoring. I had the bustier as a vintage piece, but had it lined and tapered to fit me. And when I found the long, pleated skirt, I just felt that it needed a slit - so that as I walked it could breathe and flow in billowy manner.
I'm veryyyy into lace and floral designs because they are so delicate and delightfully feminine, so I just envisioned this outfit and the beauty of its paradox: a strange but provocative balance of both shy and bold. I believe one of the beauties of femininity is the ability to project more than once facet of ourselves: both a sweetheart and a seductress.
Anyways, enough with my ramblings. Have a wonderful Monday BBs, and I'll see you mid-week ;)
