Mournful Chic?

I've had this dress for a long time. Its a traditional tibetan dress I got custom stitched at a tiny boutique at Mcleod Ganj. the traditional seamstresses stiched this dress in a day and so perfect!

I had a morticia addams inspiration in mind when i wanted to style it... black nails, black lips... but somewhere along I found mom's gorgeous fish brooch. I really don't know if it looks more Retro Glam or Gothic Morticia. Either way I know this is what I'm wearing to a next evening out!













Or is it just Mournful chic (if that can even qualify as a term)?

Nail paint - Revlon Black Beauty, Lip Color - Nina Ricci - Rouge-A-Porter 03 Satin, Inglot Black gloss 99, Eye shadow - Incolor 820.


Much love,

The brooch makes the outfit :) and so does your attitude ... Very Gothic!

sorry to hear about the loss... never seen a tibetan dress in black and worn it like you have. it looks chic no doubt from the usual way it is worn, and the brooch does it's job very well.

@ Deepika - Thankyou!Finally u made it to my blog 'officially'! :D

@Jso - Mom's friend used import jewelry from S'pore and retailed from her boutique .. but sadly doesn't anymore :( The case says its Argentium but I'm guess that's not a brandname.

@ Bollywood Style Diaries - I'm actually wearing the Black gloss over the red lipstick.. this gloss is crazy cool very versatile. Inglot has great range if u wanna try.

@ Tanvi - I LOVE this brooch... i'm all for animal jewelry. I was gonna wear a necklace too but this brooch deserves undivided limelight :P

@ Prutha - I'm glad you like it. Its rather tough for me to be minimalistic.

@L1L2 - I'm wearing the folded pleats in the front instead of the back... thought this adds more interest and conceals my tummy.

@ Vintage Obsession - My friend suggested that i should get it shorter and make it a LBD but this is better long, no?

@ Republic of chic - I tried the turban on my sis.. loooked so hot.. still trying to work it into an outfit for a post :) and lips are Red lipstick + Black Gloss!
