I love when a 'new' vintage piece saves an older youthful piece! I've owned this bodysuit for a few years now but it had been sitting in my donations pile for the last little while. Whenever I looked at it, it felt a little too juvenile, and a little too Wednesday Addams. So even though I still really liked the bodysuit, I was trying to give it up, certain that I had outgrown it.
That's where this vintage velvet pencil skirt comes in. Classic black, high waisted, and the perfect pencil skirt shape falling at a ladylike vintage length -- this skirt was the piece I needed to bring my bodysuit to grown-up levels. Since the outfit is quite dark, I avoided choosing one of my (many) burgundy heels, and instead opted for pale pink/nude pumps. Finishing touches include the rarely worn pink lipstick and delicate rose gold accessories to soften what could have been a harsh, gothic, look.
