Black & white Monday

With bare legs again, don't know what got into me ;-) Hint o' summer-goth, I guess.

What I'm wearing:
Black silk sheath dress, Target | Black & white print cardigan, Black House White Market | Black & white ankle-strap pumps, Ross | Gunmetal & rhinestone choker, random accessory store | Gunmetal cameo earrings, vintage| Black & white flower pin in hair, random accessory store | Black flower cocktail ring, Icing

I also noticed that recently, I've reached the 100 followers mark here on this lil' ol' blog. Wow, I'm impressed, & I want to thank each & every one of you who reads!

I'm sorry I don't post more often, but my life has gotten rather hectic in the past few months. I'm trying to guarantee at least 2 outfit posts a week, ideally 3, since that's how many days I'm scheduled to go into the office. But I've had some illnesses that either make me call in sick or work from home more frequently (boo), not to mention a bit of extra travel this summer (yay!).

Next week, I'll be at a conference in Southern California -- Costume College, one of my favorite annual excursions to learn more about the art, plus I'm teaching a class again (after a year off), & we may visit museums (I've never been to the Huntington or the Getty, so I can't wait to go!). Maybe I'll try to take some casual-wear pix & blog from the road. We shall see...


  1. This is one of my favorite outfit posts you've done. Fantastic. Love everything about it.

  2. You look great in this outfit! Can't wait to see Costume College posts.

  3. Lovely outfit. Shoes are so cute! n_n.

  4. Siouxsie - Wow, thank you!

    Cathi - Thanks, I'll try hard to get a few on-the-road posts.

    Madame Macabre - The shoes feel so retro :-)

    LovleAnjel - Thanks!

  5. Very striking, indeed. The shoes are awesome (and perfect for a bare leg look). Love the sweater tying in with the white on the shoes!

  6. VictorianKitty - Thanks. Yes, I'm all about the matchy-matchy ;-)
