Glamming up the goth

Glam goth

Last Sunday the weather felt so nice that I decided to bare my legs a little. Not too much, only a little, but it felt soo nice. I am hopeful that we will have a nice warm Spring and Summer and that the sandals won’t have to stay in the loft until next year. I went to Matalan the other day, as I had a gift voucher to redeem as well as extra discount and ended up spending a bit more than I was supposed to- I see what they’re doing and it’s working on weak people like me. But I brought home these sandals and the golden hearts necklace with me. the sandals were already 50% and I thought it would be an unexpensive way to try the strappy sandal trend. My feet can be really sensitive and there would be no point in spending a fortune in something that would just cut through my flesh.

My photographer Filipa was at home that day so I had to make do with the tripod and the self timer. I have to say that I wasn’t too happy with the results, plus our back garden is looking a bit drab these days. I did some editing on the images to try and make them look a little bit better. I think I have succeeded in making them look somewhat more interesting. What do you think?

I’m loving the softness of this silk cardigan. I really should invest in good quality pieces more often!

    Hi Sara!

    Happy that you are doing much better- We have tiny signs of spring around here, but not much –
    We cannot bear our legs yet!
    Ah, discount, sales, vouchers and such, my nightmare! I always spend too much
    I came across a shoe sale last night, i didn’t buy anything due to lack of time but i’m hitching to go back!

    Nice that you are going back home!
    Looking lovely Sara

    Take care

    The photos are great, you look gorgeous! We have a Matalan store just a short walk from our house, but I must say I never shop there, apart from getting occasional bits and pieces for the kids.
    How exciting to be going back to Portugal, bet you can’t wait! xxx

    Yay, spring and bare legs! Of course, that also means shaving, and I’ll have to get around to doing my nails soon. Or I’ll wear socks like you – I like that look with the rest of your cool outfit. I especially like the T-shirt.

    Playing blog catch up! I must say this whole outfit is stunning on you! I love how you mixed the Bauhaus (an all time fave!) tee with everything else, gives the whole look something very interesting. And I adore the new shoes, I used to have a plain black pair just like them years ago — the leopard really gives them some pizazz! Love you XXX

    Those discount coupons really suck us in, don’t they? Discount??? I start jumping around like a little dog looking for a treat when I hear that word. You did a very nice job with the timer. I’m almost always my own photographer so I KNOW how difficult it is. Though it would be tough to make you look bad. You are EXTRA photogenic…the sweetness comes right through. Have fun at home!!
