Skull Dress & Stripes- OH MY!

*clothing provided by Torrid*

A few weeks ago, I went to pick up dinner & stop by my UPS store (where I have my PO box) and Mikey and I decided to snap a few photos of my killer dress & leggings. In fact the story of these photos is a little funny- I was actually testing this area to film my steampunk tutorial (Which I filmed somewhere else) and I was wearing the makeup that I had just selected for my Victorian Lolita look.

I love how from the front the dress is simple and flattering but from the back you get this gorgeous lace skull that makes it unique and intriguing! I love how this dress is easy to dress up or down, and it could work well at the office with a blazer, and then at night KA-POW…skull! The dress is a bit longer than most of my skater style dresses, so I can wear it bare legged, but I love how it looks with these striped leggings. If you remember my ill-fated striped leggings from asos last summer, then you’ll know how happy I am to have found a good pair! Also, in case you’re wondering- I wore this dress with a normal bra, but I wore a nude color so it wouldn’t show.

PS- Look for the Leggings in an upcoming Halloween video…

I still can’t believe I got this gorgeous Cameo for only 3.99 at Michael’s Crafts! I got the spider earrings at Spirit Halloween last year.

    The dress is really cute and I love the leggings. I ordered them the other day and should get them tomorrow. I can’t wait.

    I’m pretty stoked to know we own the same dress. I bought and wore the same dress for my wedding reception.
