With the AB off and about on his own I sadly got very few pictures of this outfit. But i paired it with black and fake white diamond accessories.
I like blue and black as a color combination, I think it's quite classic but with just enough edge. Wine or red with black is so popular in goth culture, that though I love it blue and black feels fresher to me.
To make it ultra modern I like to go for blue leather, or mix it with neutrals.
Like green shoes I'm always on the hunt for some fun blue shoes.
But what I find I have are a number of royal blue tops and dresses.
And my retro cut JC Penny printed one is an old favorite. Apart form anything else, it packs great. Although, I am thinking of putting a crinoline under it to make it more poofy.
