The dark aristocrat

I always had this nagging suspicion I could levitate and as proven by this photos I was right!:)))) They were not photoshoped so the only logical explanation it’s that I can fly! I’m really excited I was wearing this outfit while levitating for the first time – you really don’t want your superhero costume to be something boring.

What possessed me to dress this way, you ask? Well, I got some awesome jewelry recently, a bunch of cool silver rings and bracelets and I felt the ardent need to wear them all at once. A maxi dress came to mind immediately as something that would work wonderfully and the rest is history. I was aiming for a witchy vibe, but a high-end version of that – maybe a princess turned to dark magic for some reason – if you get my drift!

I was actually followed by this furious, short woman that was asking obsessively: ”Do you think you’re a princess?” (Te crezi printesa? in Romanian) like it was a bad thing if I did. I can’t imagine why somebody would ever do that but I stopped and answered politely: ”Sometimes”. The whole thing was so ridiculous it was funny. This is what I get for riding the subway in such a get up!:))))

Getting back to my favorite subject – jewelry – I’m super obsessed with this lot from Red Cap – and I’ve been wearing them a lot these past two weeks. There’s something magic about good Goth theme rings and lots of them. I actually had a version of this outfit on for the Avanpremire 13 event - I just needed to show off the dress and bling to a more fashion friendly crowd!:)))
 I’m wearing:
maxi dress / rochie - Topshop
  red jacket / jacheta rosie - H&M (The garden collection)
floppy hat / palarie - New Look
boots, fringe bag / cizme, geanta franjuri - random brand
rings / inele - Red Cap jewelry (1, 2, 3, 4)
   bracelets / bratari - Red Cap jewelry (1, 2)

Fabulous! Love everything...the red blazer, the dress, the pics!

Jan Graham-McMillen said...

Of course you want to wear those pretty pieces together! So chic, and classic with black and red ... the chiffon dress and amazing jacket clearly had the little old lady convinced you must be royalty.
All this, and you levitate.
That's style.

I LOVE SHOPPING

The Dainty Dolls House said...

So so gorgeous, love this dress, it's wonderful. Love all the pieces you put with it too. I would have been a bit scared with that woman, how crazy!! It's funny how long ago dressing up every day was how it was done and was supposed to be done and now if you dress up, people think you are going somewhere fancy or that you think you're better than them. It's very strange. Because back then even the poorer people dressed in their best. I think we have become a little lazy, haha! xx

You look fab! I have that same jacket but I haven't worn it yet - I haven't figured out how yet plus it always feels too much for the Office :P
What a great look!

great look ;)

Alice in vintageland said...

@Sacramento Amate - thank you so much! You're always so kind to me!

Alice in vintageland said...

Emanuel I. - multumesc, jacheta mereu o admir in dulap, dar datorita umerilor supradimensionati nu merge cu multe tinute, dar o port cu drag cand arata bine cu ceva!

Alice in vintageland said...

Shon - and that's all I want, to glamorously be appointed a Superhero :))))

Alice in vintageland said...

Jan Graham-McMillen- she was actually young and mean and obviously slightly crazy :))))) but I have a forgiving nature so I let it slide :)))

Alice in vintageland said...

@Lilli - I had a serious case of rings obsession a few years ago and based on this outfit it's coming back!:)))

Alice in vintageland said...

Alexandra Diana Catanoaia - multumesc, de geanta am si uitat sa zic, este elementul boem al tinutei:)))

Alice in vintageland said...

@The Dainty Dolls House - I know, I'm often a bit overdressed and ride the subway everyday so I guess I stand out a bit, usually people just stare or gossip quietly, I never had someone crazy following me but it was bound to happened :)))))))

Alice in vintageland said...

@Vivi N. - thank you so much, that's a huge compliment and made my day!

Alice in vintageland said...

@Mrs. D - I feel you, it's very pretty but hard to pull off, those dramatic shoulders don't look good with everything and it's hard to find something to balance the proportions.

Oh, I love your text, so honest and true! I see nothing bad in feeling your self as a princess, but the sense of proportion should be in anything. I mean people shouldn't act disrespectfully to other people and be to much self-enamoured.
I love your original, feminine outfit! So royal and radiant. That hat fits you perfectly well! Those photographs are adorable, you look so beautiful and chic!
Wish you a blessed day ahead!

Your dress is beautiful, and you really so look like a witch :P I really loved the story behind your outfit (I like to make up my own characters too :P) ^^

Oh, and your gothic jewellery is super cool! :D

Very edgy n_n

I also get rude comments from people on the street sometimes, but that's a part of what we do, I think. It's not surprising people get a bit shocked... So what? B)
