 My new Bodyline OP got here.

It is glorious and black and gothic and full of old-school  delight.

It has raschel lace. Raschel lace that actually looks glorious on the dress and not even ita at all.

I ain't even mad. 

I did cut off the shoulder lace and waist ties though, because that was just awkward. But seriously yeah it uses raschel but it doesn't look like shit at all in person.

oh god why am i doing this.

I really really want the Baby the Stars Shine Bright Heart Pocket JSK in black. It's an incredibly affordable jsk for being brand, and it's beautiful and perfect for any style.

Sadly I spent $170 on a netbook because as beautiful as that dress is, it's not gonna help me take notes or amuse me on 2 hour flights. I'm gonna watch the sales comm for it, though.
