Today's Outfit post introduces a style trend that I seem to be cultivating lately that I call Dark Romance.
(hard time with pictures that day)
Dark Romance is inspired by Tim Burton movies, Flemish paintings, Camille Rose Garcia ink drawings and especially my recently revived early adolescent obsession with Marilyn Manson. I haven't been interested in wearing black as much since my poseur-goth days.
*Vintage 70s dress: thrifted in Virginia 7 years ago, sadly this is the first I'd worn it although I've always been thinking of it. Ever get that way, where you just don't know how to wear something?
*Purse: thrifted (Virginia)
*Vintage 50s Jacket: thrifted
Elements of Dark Romance:
*black, especially worn in conjunction with
*glitter, sequins and rhinestones.
*lace, velvet, vinyl and dotted swiss
*narrow waists and full hips
*touches of pink, red and purple
*heart, floral and super feminine details, the more miniature the better
