If I was to give a name to this style, I would call it "Gothic Ballerina" (hence all the unusual poses). I think I need to spend time watching more ballet documentaries and wearing all-black. Your clothes can definitely affect your mood and in this costume I felt whimsical and dramatic.

  19. You look very beautiful! I really like the first picture, and I can understand why you would call this "Gothic Ballerina" :)

    I was actually thinking just the same about wearing all black. I've been testing a lighter palette lately, and though it is a lot of fun, I miss my all-blacks :)

  20. I love the drama and romance of this look. I'm always impressed by gals who are able to make all-black outfits seem light and whimsical.
