Designed and made in LA, La Femme En Noir focuses on lush fabrics and amazingly designed items that compliment your figure. Micheline and Lynh have finally created all of those garments we've been dreaming about for years.
From the moment this label was announced I knew that I needed one if not the whole range but which? I sadly missed out on my most lusted after piece - The Southern Gothic Skirt and Vamp Batwing Sunglasses on the first release round but I know I'll be able to snap these up in the future. But next on my list was the full length gothic gown of my dreams.
Every girl needs a wrap dress, It's fashion 101, but it's clear now that every woman needs a wrap gown. Do you want to feel like a total vamp, dressed to the nines yet feel more comfortable that wearing your favourite robe or pjs? Well, the Black Widow Wrap Gown is for you. The fabric and lining is a knit of 92% poly with 8% spandex and this fabric is an absolute dream to wear. So soft and comfortable flowing yet falls beautifully.
Being a wrap this dress really accentuates a curvy figure and shows off all of your best assets. Featuring amazing and huge bishop sleeves, an internal grosgrain ribbon tie and button closure and a sash designed to cinch in your waist. A perfectly glam gothic gown for all occasions. I've worn this out for cocktails but it can go from day to night with accessories and shoes. .
I'm wearing the Black Widow dress in a 2XL but due to the fabric I would prefer a size smaller as it gave me lots of room in the bust and even a little in the waist. So I you are between sizes and want this style in solid black size down. The black widow is also available in a stunning black lace version but there is limited stretch in that fabric so stick to your usual sizing.
Black Widow Rhinestone Spider Brooch - $44.00
Accessory wise I wanted to keep it simple yet stunning so the matching Black Widow Spider brooch was the obvious choice. A simply stunning piece that sparkles like crazy and completes this look perfectly. I also love adding this brooch to my moto jackets, cardigans and blouses. The size of this piece is brilliant, and it really is an amazing statement piece.
I can't wait to see what the future holds for this label and to add more gothic glam styles to my collection. Thank you Micheline and Lynh for giving the gothic pinup girls of the world the perfect wardrobe staples.
