Romantic Goth: 'Dahlia' Skirt at Rose Mortem

Behold the correct use of velvet and lace in gothic clothing. Let the velvet do what it does best, which is to cascade freely and heavily downwards, and romanticize it with a modest lace trimming. This I approve of. See, I haven't got anything against Romantic Goths. It can be done with style, oh yes, with both velvet and lace, even.

There's a touch of period clothing style with this particular skirt, too, and depending on what else one might wear with it, it could pass for Neo-Victorian or Steampunk. Especially the burgundy version.

Found here.
