Modern, Romantic Victorian Style

Victorian and Gothic style can turn cartoonish, very quick.  If you aren’t willing to step out in full Vistorian, but love the era and influence: extreme lace detailing, feminine cuts, silks/sheer blouses, or leather boots, check out this modern look I put together.

I might go on a tangent about how much i’m going to miss warm weather with Fall and Wintter approaching…even thought it’s still in the 80’s in good ‘ol Savannah, Georgia.  But what I do love…is burgundy…marroon…deep plums.  Probably because their variations of red and purple, two of my favorite colors.  Not to mention, it’s always fall appropriate, but is a very trendy color…nails, hair, coats, shoes, etc.

I’ve been waiting to wear this dress because I love the bow, BUT LET ME TELL YOU….the arms are totally wonky.  I needed to pull it over my big hair, have my mom pull the dress down WHILE my dad was pulling my arm up. Yea, a mess. But it was worth it lol.  I paired this rich color dress with some rich boots…my Manolo Blahniks…that were unworn. And free. Remember?

One of the trends this fall are colors that tend to be seen in other seasons– blush, florals and oranges.  I love orange and the different variations…definately my tones (pulls out the gold in my skin).  And as you know, i’m a huge fan of jumpsuits and onesie fits, so of course when I see them in stores, I gravitate towards them.  There were several different colors and I tried on the royal blue, but I have a ton of blue and was missing a super bright piece in my wardrobe. Aaaand, it was on clearance.
