dress: stylestalker | heels: saint laurent
I typically shy away from the skater skirt silhouette because I find it to be cute and sweet, which are very wonderful traits when not pertaining to my wardrobe. That being said, you would think that a dress with a skater skirt and flowers on it would not be included amongst all my pencils skirts, slits, and minis. But there's black. And mesh. And strapless. And off-the-shoulder. Then topped off with a pair of exaggerated mary janes and a vampy lip...more than enough dark and twisty details to temper the sweetness.
P.S. I've been nominated as a CultureMap Stylemaker :) You can vote here.
