Gothic – Share In Style

January 31, 2014

Sacramento of Mis Papelicos has organized another Share-In-Style and this time the chosentheme was “Gothic”. I had to dress up for it, of course. I decided on an all black look but not totally classic goth – there is a bit of velvet but that’s pretty much the only thing that would be on a traditional goth’s closet. I decided to do a more updated glam goth version, which included sequined leggings and a few more fun bits and bobs.

The day was grey and the light wasn’t too brilliant but it just exacerbated my paleness – looking pale is totes gothic.

A bunch of bracelets I bought to use on this photoshoot with my friends.

“I’m so goth I poop bats”

So there. What I wore: Glasses – Firmoo, Sequined Leggings – Zara, Blazer – H&N, Turban – Lomography shop in Lisbon, Creepy Cat/Doll Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha, Boots– Internacionale, Top – Stradivarius, Bracelets – Matalan

 And a Gothic Hello Kitty, to complete the look. Apologies but the light was so terrible I couldn’t get a better photo of it.

Witching around

November 18, 2013

One of my current TV loves is undoubtedly American Horror Story Coven. I would venture to say that in my opinion, this has been the best season of the series so far. Too bad that it’ll be the last…

As I love the styling in the series, I thought I’d bring out the items in my closet that resemble the outfits on TV and had me some fun in the dark!

“What was that sound?”

What I wore: Floppy hat : H&M (also seen here), Dress – Vintage Jaeger, from a charity shop (also seen here), Boots – Office (via Ebay).

I’m adding the outfit to Patti’s Visible Monday!


Family jewels

April 24, 2013

I haven’t DIYed as much as I would like to recently but was very inspired by a similar project made by a friend. So I took to Ebay and found the black angora top and the jewels. Added a needle and some thread and in a couple of sittings I finally finished it! I already have the materials to do a similar one in several colours. I can’t wait to have the time to do it!
