A bad picture of my embroidered brown flowy-sleeved dress. Also: stripey tights. I look like a monk.
My striped bustier, with last year's black skirt and my lace-up fishnet gloves. Really ought to have a chemise underneath it, but I can put that off for another year, I suppose. The stripes did something odd to the camera and wouldn't photograph. Perhaps they are possessed.
Here is the back of the bustier. I have it laced up with a hot-pink ribbon. The positioning in this photo is very, very awkward.
