i have just noticed that all my outfit attempts were never in Black. So, i decided to break the norm by putting on some black pieces that has been trapped in my wardrobe for ages :D i can almost hardly find these pieces as they deeply sunk into the bottom most of the stack.. Furthermore it is black in color & it easily camofloushes with the rest of the black outfit. The reason i picked this combination because i am in the mood for frills, ruffles, lace and heavy embroideries that gives the entire look a feel of gothic / haute fashion-like experience. The skirt was similar with what Target.com has offered – Libertine Lace Ruffle Skirt for 39.90 USD. Whereas mine was bought at MNG at a 70% slashed price, 49.oo MYR ~ 14 USD (@ 3.5 conversion rate). i knew that the ruffles were not too dominant to create the effect but it was close. i am not a fan of silky-effect-fabrics as you can see from the picture that the top were made of satin-like fabric covering the chest area, i would prefer it to be matt effect (chiffon, cotton, or anything besides glossy fabric) if possible. So that it adds up enough amount of energy & seriousness into the entire ensemble. i then pair it with my Bebe Stella shoe, sorry i have forgotten to take a close-up for this :D In case you’re wondering, you can see it here. Thank you for those who visited & viewed my blog. i appreciate it. See you all again.

    Terrific skirt! I love the detailing and agree that it definitely adds a certain goth-couture vibe. The shoes are pretty awesome as well. I do find MNG to have some really good items – at first glance pieces might seem a bit boring or overly flashy, but I get a lot of my favorite pieces from them.

      Yeah, i totally agreee with you, MNG’s stuff are sometimes almost there but somewhat lacking of something that makes it look entirely good. Ha ha! Its a sad thing that we are only getting ol’ MNG stuff here (the ones leftover / overstock from their previous collections).. how i wish that i could get to the places featured in your blog, they’re fantastic! Thanks for your thoughts.
