StyleCard: Atomic Amour Heels

Sometimes I just cannot resist a hint of Gothic Lolita, and on a trip to Atomic I stumbled upon what are seemingly simple decorated black heels, worn with the right dress they become a perfect compliment to this more theatrical fashion diversion. Which came first, the dress or the shoes? In this case it was the dress, but occasionally you get lucky and find the perfect shoe after the fact, as was the case here. The Amour Heels by Atomic Footwear are a great rounded toe chunky heel with wonderful texturing and great attention to prim extras. A touch of lace around the foot opening, and the bead and bow decoration on the ankle add a ton of personality to these pumps.

The EXIA Gothic Dress is a find on it's own, I can barely remember finding it, the poofy ballerina skirt and leather buttoned corset with lace accent, are just one wearing option for the set, which comes with stockings, prim bow garters and sleeves. Simplifying the look makes it less costumey and more mainstream in my opinion. Some stunning jewelry from Donna Flora and a bright red lip compliment the sculptural hair from JE*REPUBLIC, to complete my StyleCard.
