Book Style: The Picture Of Dorian Gray

The Picture Of Dorian Gray

I love this book. I'm a weird Dorian Gray/Oscar Wilde fangirl.  I couldn't put together a The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde outfit without having it be a party outfit. Seriously, Wilde is my consistent answer to the "Who, living or dead, would you like to have dinner with?" question. I also had to have a purple velvet jacket. Don't ask me why, but I cannot think of Dorian or Oscar without imagining them in a lush, purple velvet evening jacket. The skull ring is an nice nod to the eponymous picture and also helps draw some excellent parallels between the opulence of modern rock'n'roll and the similar opulence of the aestheticism movement that Wilde was so central in. Some dark, skinny jeans, supple gray booties, and a glitter clutch round out the outfit.
