Leather and Lace


I splurged a few weeks ago and picked up this long lace dress (maxi dress is the modern term) at my favorite thrift store for $8. Ohhh, that is breaking the bank! (hehe, just joking)


I paired the lace dress with my favorite leather bat belt (gift from Derek) and a o-ring hip belt. I have been lusting after lace, lace and more lace, so this dress appeased my lace lust.....for now. Though the dress has long lace sleeves, they are a bit too short for me and decided to push them up and wear my stretch studded bracelets. 

I really love the neckline of the dress

I am wearing Vamp It Up from Wet n' Wild's Megablast Lip Stick collection as recommended by Madam Noire make up blog. It's a really dark purple, almost black and at a $1.99 price tag, I had to give it a try. The lipstick is pretty drying on the lips, but I haven't worn it longer than a few hours at the most. I'm going to buy some more lip primer and see if that helps with the 'dry feeling'.

Do you have a lip primer that you would recommend?

Thank you for reading!

  2. ::DROOLS:: That dress is perfect on you! And it was totally a STEAL. I'm heading for our local EcoThrift tomorrow! Or maybe tonight, after work...

    Please tell me you are also a Stevie Nicks fan! From the post title, I'm thinking you are... I've always lusted for more lace skirts, dresses, tops, etc., and I always use her as my 'go to' for ideas.

  4. That is a dress to die for. A classic staple for only $8. I'd wear it like an uniform (everyday).
    Just gorgeous!

    1. Target has a few cotton ones that I thought were nice and summery :)

  6. HOLY SMOKES! How did I miss this outfit?!? LOVE the dress and that belt is to DIE FOR! WAHOO! *insert wolf whistle here*

    I like all of Laura Geller's primers -- they are super moisturizing, easy to handle and are long lasting.

  7. I would suggest a lip liner underneath this lipstick to make it stay in place. NYX Cosmetics makes inexpensive ones and they have dark purples and even a black lip liner! I find they work really well under my lipsticks to keep them on forever! I am loving the maxi dress for this summer, I just found a couple of black ones. I dislike many types of summer clothes but for some reason the maxi dress seems easy to goth up. I'm really liking this lace one!

    1. I usually apply a lip liner to line my lips, I will try using it all over! Great suggestions, thank you :)

      Maxi dresses are so comfy, you just need to find ones that give your figure a nice shape. Though I love the 'goth sack chic', some definition is welcome ;)
