Close-Up - Moi-même-Moitié's Velveteen Rosencreuz Skirt

A bit rumpled from storage but gorgeous nonetheless~
In the fall last year I had the pleasure of acquiring my first piece by Moi-même-Moitié and while it didn't necessarily fit in with the rest of my wardrobe, I loved the change of pace. This particular skirt holds far less petticoat than my more contemporary designs, and was shown in the original stock photos with a very light or non-existent underlayer. There is a sumptuousness about Moi-même-Moitié that I think makes their pieces especially desirable and after getting my hands on this beauty I have to agree. There is a delicacy to the design that carries the torch of understated elegance beautifully. Despite being released in 2006, I find the simplicity of this skirt allows me coord it with so many contemporary pieces which might otherwise clash with older and oldschool designs.

Fleur-de-lis detailing in the lace

Rosencreuz - rosy cross makes this aristocratic flower a deity

 I love the creeping thorns which grow wild and angular without making the print chaotic

The rose of the heart enshrined

Though the fabric is heavy and not necessarily suitable to all weather, it is lovely all the same
This skirt was featured in my Lolita Blog Carnival Coordination Post and I hope to find it a similarly versatile home within my wardrobe in the coming months. Who says a classic lolita can't go a bit dark every once in a while?

Stay strong and beautiful, my lovelies,
Burgher
