Forebodings Of The Gloomy

I'm not totally sold on the peplum trend, but I saw this blouse and thought it would look nice with the flippy black skirt I already owned--the triangle cut-out in the back was such a cool detail too. The darkness of the outfit suits the weather we've had lately--thunderstorms and nearly constant clouds. June is shaping up to be gloomier than summery May...

  6. @MintJulep, probably not haha--I only own 2 knit pencil skirts and neither would match this. Since I hardly wear those I'm not interested in buying another pencil skirt, so nope.

  10. I too thought it was a dress, which for me means you mixed the outfit perfectly! I am usually a sunshine lover, but I have actually been yearning for some gloom lately. I think its because when I am overly spent and tired, there's more of an excuse to relax and do nothing inside if its a rainy day!

    Anyway, you look lovely!

  13. Wow, I'm not very much into the whole peplum trend either, but this outfit shape makes your legs look super long Rebecca :) And black suits you beautifully!
    Thumbs up lady!

  14. Rebecca! I'm loving all your new locations since your move -- seems like you're having fun exploring around town. The combination of the graveyard + black lace is the perfect combination of romantic and gloomy.

  15. I got a peplum blouse to try the shape out and wear mine in the same way. Looks awful (on me) with a pencil skirt though - I felt like a generic office girl trying to add some interest to the work wardrobe without looking too much like a free thinker. Ha.
