Charlotte Sometimes.....



Friday was our monthly goth/dark electronic dance night-Radiation-so it was time to pile on some extra makeup, dust off the platforms and pile the hair up high. I had a little help with the aid of some tracks of hair that I attached (with bobby pins) to one side of my hair to give me some extra volume. I used to wear all sorts of hair pieces, so it was fun to take some tracks of human hair, crimp it and tease it to blend in. Voila! even bigger hair!


It was ridiculously cold outside and snowy, so layering and warmth was on my mind, but I didn't want to overheat at the club. So I reached into my closet for one of my favorite dresses that I bought on the clearance rack ($7) at Forever 21 some years ago. I like to think that this dress was meant to live in my closet as I found it crammed in a corner. I sorta had to 'unearth it' in the clearance pile insanity. SCORE! This dress is sleeveless with a cute collar, so a knit shrug does the trick (thrift store 99 cents), add some patterned leggings and my platform boots.


Though my personal style may seem a little basic with my clothing pieces, I like to play up my look with accessories. I like the look at silver or metal jewelry again black or mixing in organic piece like bones or feathers, and I'm still a girlie girl and love some sparkle here and there. I also like to wear a red, burgundy, or purple lip to enhance my gothy pout. *Wink*.


I was so comfortable and felt pretty after feeling like garbage for over a week. I also missed the comfort of my platforms when dancing, I was looking for an alternative to wearing them to the club all the time, but everything else I try to wear tears up my poor feet. I think there is a reason why I've been wearing platforms to the club for over ten years! My experimentation period is over, haha!

What's you're favorite outfit to wear that makes you feel effortless pretty?

Thanks for reading!!!

  4. You look fantastic! You really pull of the 'old school' classic Goth look so beautifullly! I am jealous of the way your hair stands up, mine is too fine, even when it's short! The dress is amazing, and I always love a bargain! Love the boots too!

    The vid isn't working for me, net being slow. Do you know if it is clips from the movie The Moth Diaries? I loved the book, you spend the whole time going- "is she a vampire or just a lesbian?" very well written psychological novel, definitely owes something to Carmilla.

    1. The crimper helps my hair for volume and good hair spray+backcombing.

      The video is just produced for The Cure (not from a movie), I'm sure if you Google for the video, you may be able to see it. =D
