Noir

I must admit, when I heard about the Modcloth Chictopia dress I wasn't expecting much, but low expectations are a good way to be pleasantly surprised--and I was! The fit and shape of this dress are delightful and I rather love the almost gaudy sheen of the material. There's a real weight to the dress and the bell shape of the skirt holds all on its own. My only downsides are: I have nowhere to wear this and why wasn't this around when I was a few years younger?
All of the other ladies invited to Chictopia 10 will be receiving this dress and wearing it in their own way, so we can all look forward to the diversity of styles that will showcase. Mitzi Cocoa wore hers recently with a blazer and pearls. I paired mine with my El Top-o-Mod blouse which I've been meaning to wear out. I really love this delicate, sheer blouse with the loose bow at the neck. The outfit came out unintentionally Gothic Lolita...Perhaps, I have been watching too much anime online lately.

  1. Pardon my excitement when I show less excitement over your dress and more over our MATCHING HEDGIE RINGSSSS.

    <3 nOir jewelry, and love seeing him up there.

    (The dress is lovely, also. ;)

  2. Gothic Lolita is a good way to put it :) But I always feel that your outfit shots are less outfit shots and more works of art.

  16. eek! I think I'd be worried to wear those beautiful tights around all those potential snag hazards! But I may be hyper-sensitive I lost a pair of dot tights to the side of my clothes hamper last week :(

    PS: I wish my sparkly maryjanes were silver! that would be so much cooler. Alas, they are a peachy sort of hue. but I'll try not to hold it against them.

  24. i've always been a sideline admirer or gothic lolita, never a participant. I think your interpretation is delightful. Also, you can NEVER watch too much Anime :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. for me you still own the best collection of tights ever!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gorgeous everything! Especially tights!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Is it totally lame, that besides liking the gothic lolita feel of your outfit, I was most excited to hear that you watch anime online?

    I haven't watched anime or read manga in such a long time, but I do like it. Do you have a favorite?

  32. p.s. your hedgehog ring is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I really like it to, the Modcloth shop has been tempting me so much lately!

    ReplyDelete
  34. The bell shape of the dress totally suits your body. It's girlish, like you did say, but as long as you remain youthful in life, most of the clothes should not seem age inapproriate.

    Maybe only in length, but you're well under 30, unlike me, so you're good!

    Add me on Twitter as well if you like, @maeko.

  36. Also, noticed this dress falls 100% different on you than it does on Mitzi. Weird.

    Mitzi and I are becoming friends. She lives in my hometown (Victoria, BC).

  40. I love gothic loli and you styled this wonderfully. I think I may have ordered a size too big... I can see it fits you quite differently. American/Canadian size differences is so confusing. Thanks for mentioning me, by the way!

  56. I like the ring shot, it looks nearly religious.

    ReplyDelete
  57. what's your inspiration for the latest change towards black romantic gothicism? It's not a coincidence anymore, and I quite like it in contrast to the landscapes around you

    ReplyDelete
  58. Such a beautiful dress! I love the way you styled it; indeed, even the gothic feel of the whole look. Excellent tights. :D

  64. Just out of curiosity, what lake is this? It looks very familiar...I think this might be near my house.

    Love the outfit, btw, especially the tights!

  65. love the layering of the sheer under the dress. Your style seems to have added a touch of sophistication lately (though it remains equally lovely)
