All Laced Up

I'm in love with lace right now. From dresses to stockings, jackets to skirts all I want is lace! So when I saw this little a-line skirt on Torrid I had to have it in my life asap.

Red Laura Top from Pinup Girl Clothing - $38.00US (Underneath and Sold Out)
  Black Lace Skirt- $44.50US
Torrid Belt (Sold out) - But you can find more here
Shoes - Luichiny 

So my original idea when putting this outfit together was to create almost a full lace black dress of sorts. But when it arrived I found out quick smart that the cardigan needed something worn beneath it so this ended up being my final outfit. I love the pop of colour beneath the black pattern.

I'm wearing both the cardigan and skirt in a Torrid 0.  I found the Skirt to be easy to slip over my hips and I chose to wear this high on my waist apposed to how the model has shown it on the website.

The under layer just skim's my behind when I wear it higher but usually I would have thick black stockings on for such an outfit. I opted to not wear the stockings so you could see how short it is when worn high.

I really love the texture and the style of knit on this cardigan! The fit loose and there is a lot of stretch to the garment. It's perfect for layering over tops, dresses, tanks and more in both winter and summer.

I paired this with a fantastic Torrid belt to nip in my waist a little more and to bring the outfit together. Sadly this style has sold out online right now but you can pick up a variety of different styles here.

Black and White Skull Scarf - $18.50

Then finally because it's oh so chilly down here I finished my outfit off with my new favorite scarf. I'm such a sucker for skulls! 

This is light weight but you can wrap it around your neck for extra warmth or wear it more as an accessory as I have here. 

Many thanks to  Michael Alesich from Lucky and Rice who braved the cold this night to shoot outfit after outfit with me at a local train station. It's always and absolute pleasure to shoot with you!
