I've been wearing a lot of cutesy things, lately. So, I wanted to end the week with something a little dark and edgy, but not necessarily scary. ;P Also, as you can see, I took a stab at showing a little cleavage. Ooh la la. o_O Haha. I was going to wear something sheer underneath the bustier top, but I figured, 'Hey, I'm young. I should show a little skin before it gets all wrinkly. Live a little, Anna!' Hehe.
Plus, I got a chance to show off my dragon tattoo. :DDD It's on my back, so I keep forgetting I have it! >_< I got the work done six years ago and I've probably shown it off maybe a dozen times. I don't often wear things that show my off chest and back. Hmm. Since when did I become so conservative? Haha.
Anyway, it was chilly enough for a coat, but too hot for a sweater. So, the outfit was appropriate for all-day wear. You might recognize the black lace maxi skirt. Click here to see how I last wore it as part of a scarier outfit. ;D I decided to pin the skirt, again, but at a sharper angle so it would twist and fold at the side. I've always wanted one of those asymmetrical twist maxi skirts, but I can't justify spending money on something like that, right now. So, I used a pin and made my own. ^_^ Like I said before, I can't sew a garment from scratch, but I can still find ways to "make" new clothes for myself. Heh.
The crazy bright turquoise over-the-knee socks are from my sponsor, Sock It To Me. It's the final pair of socks that I received from them and it's quite an eye catcher. Normally, I would wear them underneath jeans and just roll up the cuffs to show off the rad print (and that's probably how they'll get worn from here on out). However, the print is so bright and fun that I would have felt bad about not showing the socks in their entirety. I wanted a pop of color without being too distracting, so I twisted the skirt in such a way that it would conceal most of one sock while completely showing off the other. :P
