After a day spent in steampunk garb I changed that night for my easy royal blue dress. This is the one I put to the vote for the documentary
. It's not vintage but it fits well and with the full skirt it looks good with flats.
With the AB off and about on his own I sadly got very few pictures of this outfit. But i paired it with black and fake white diamond accessories.
I like blue and black as a color combination, I think it's quite classic but with just enough edge. Wine or red with black is so popular in goth culture, that though I love it blue and black feels fresher to me.
To make it ultra modern I like to go for blue leather, or mix it with neutrals.And my retro cut JC Penny printed one is an old favorite. Apart form anything else, it packs great. Although, I am thinking of putting a crinoline under it to make it more poofy.
Something for my characters to wear.
