Today's (or more like yesterday's at this point, as it's 2am.) calendar is a teeny bit overdue since I came home after midnight from a farewell party of two friends. The dresscode was funeral and you can imagine how difficult it was to decide what to wear! There's so many mourning hats, black pearls and dark gowns lurking in the closet that a roomful of people could've had their share, and some of the guests actually did borrow things. It was weird in a good way to see friends dressed up all in black, almost as if everyone had magically turned into goths for one evening, hehe.
Here's the outfit of the sorrowful evening, I'm back to black in extreme measures and played the grieving part of a black widow. Or a goth princess, like one of my friends put it.

necklace ~ Back Street / spine heels ~ Arrogant Minnie
The funeral theme was appropriate since we have to let two of our lovelies go into other cities, derby leagues and new chapters of their lives. So no one died, except eras of some kind. I'm so happy for them both but parting always feels sad, so the the mourning veil was more than suitable. I'm going to miss you dearly, ladies. ♥
