Jingle Jangle


So I've had this strange black lace lingerie piece since the high school days of yore, and even though I never wear it, I can't seem to throw it away because its too pretty. I originally wasn't happy with the outfit I first threw on this morning, so I changed into this and my mood increased tenfold. I wish the wind hadn't blown the skirt, because the draping detail is so dramatic when it hangs properly.

Black hoodie - Winners, bought ages ago
Black lace "dress" - Value Village, also bought ages ago
Floral leggings - I Hear Norwegian Wood
Doc Martens - Thrifted at St. Vincent de Paul, $4

your leggings are fantastic, and that dress does fall beautifully. mmm i love lace. (oh and yeah, i learned about hildegard last year. one of my history classes had a music history segment. what a badass, eh? you're so lucky to have an entire music history class - sounds fascinating!)
