The Space Between

I bought this dress over a year ago and wore it few times then forgot about it. Even in a carefully color-coded closet like mine, things can temporarily disappear. I think this is an indication I need less black in my wardrobe. Regardless, I'm quite glad the dress decided to resurface because it certainly is a fun one to wear. It reminds me of Proenza Schouler F/W 2010. Sort of dark schoolgirl vibes; a mix of edginess and naivete that really doesn't get boring. I think I should find a petticoat to wear underneath it to make the skirt even fuller and more dramatic.

  11. The dress is the perfect mix of gothic and romantic. And I can understand why your closet is overflowing with black pieces; black looks lovely with your vibrant red hair!

  24. You look so ephemeral and poetic in this lace dress.

    I really want to color-coat my closet. I had it so in the past, but I get so lazy..

  25. That dress is super hot! I love the pretty lace details and the cut is just perfect. I hope you find a petticoat to wear with it. The only thing is, is that most petticoats that I've come across are really high-waisted so you may see the top of the petticoat through the lace.

    I'm also glad to know I'm not the only one who organizes according to color!
