We all saw a return to longer skirt lengths on the Spring 2011 runways this fall. And little by little I'm seeing this out at night as well. This girl appears to be trying to have the best of both worlds by working a longer lace dress over a smaller body-con black one. It's an interesting alternative and one I haven't seen before. The messily pulled back hair and filigreed belt buckle gives it a slight prairie girl vibe but she saved it from being too referential to country by avoiding cowboy boots and sticking with some great black platform booties.
