Cage Match: White Skin vs. White Dress

Posted: July 15, 2015

Sorry I'm late; somehow I forgot that I blog on Tuesdays. Unaccountable, I know.

I tended to favor dark colors even before Lynn's goth influence. I've passed over a lot of light colored clothing over the years due to excessive translucence. And now that I'm taking a lot of pictures of my outfits, I have another reason to avoid light clothing; it's difficult to advantageously show off the paleness of my skin without washing out all the detail of the clothing. Still, I have another white dress that I've gotten a lot of mileage out of, which made me want to try a plainer, sleeker, more versatile version. It isn't quite as opaque as I'd like -- I still wear a slip under it -- but it isn't that bad.

Oh, and if you want this dress, in this or several other colors, and can wait a few weeks, you'll probably want to pick it up from AliExpress and avoid out of sight shipping costs via DHL.
