outfit post: Briar Rose

"She dreams, as she has often dreamt, of abandonment and betrayal, of lost hope, of the self gone astray from the body, the body forsaking the unlikely self. She feels like a once proud castle whose walls have collapsed, her halls and towers invaded, not by marauding armies, but by humbler creatures, bats, birds, cats, cattle, her departed self an unkempt army marauding elsewhere in a scatter of confused intentions."

Oh my gosh, I think I'm going to have to break down and buy a pair of lace tights. Seriously, I had some when I was 12 and I'm kinda scared to try the trend the second time around!
