Girl who dances in a cage

I got it!!

I felt really guilty about going back to the boutique today to buy that new coat, right after I just ordered that cosplay gothic coat on eBay. But all the guilt went out the window as soon as I got to the store and tried it on again. I feel so elegant and happy when I put it on! It turned out the coat had already been set aside in the back somewhere because a model was scheduled to wear it in a photo shoot. The model had also indicated that she wanted to buy the coat. Hopefully she can fit in the size small, since I purchased the only X-small they had.

It's very Edwardian. And I found out from the designer's website, that it is also an "evening coat." Pics below the cut if you'd like to see my new treasure.

Here is the picture from the designer's website. You can't see what makes the coat so special though; the layout of the buttons. But you can see the cool purple satin lining:


I had to take a close up of the buttons, because you can't really see them in the shots in which I'm wearing the coat:

I tried turning the constrast way the hell up (in PhotoShop) to try and make the buttons more visible. The pictures don't do the coat justice. You really have to see it in person. It's so gothy and elegant in real life!
