OOTD: Goth, but Beauty School dress code appropriate

Hello Lovelies!

I do love OOTD (Outfit of the Day)  - so that's what today will be!

As ya'll probably know, my aesthetic is dark, weaving in & out of the gothic range.
Since today is a Wednesday, my outfit is dress code appropriate.

While shopping at Hobby Lobby in this outfit, an elder gentleman came up & told me,  "Everyone should dress like you!"' xD

In retrospect, it must be time to clean the mirror.
The bathroom. The bathroom in general.

Mohawking it up. ;)

Item List:

+ Black & White Striped Shirt (Target, this season)
+ High-low skirt (Plato's Closet)
+ Boots (Payless)
+ Pentagram Necklace (New Moon, a new age store)
+ Black lippie (My Beaulty Addition, Nyx & Sealed With A Kiss)
+ Eye make up: Purple L'Oreal eyeliner, ELF eyeshadow, Wet N Wild eyeshadow, Tarte mascara)

Waaaa! Ah; great day, Lovelies!
When would YOU wear black lipstick? :D

Hey Babes - guess who's back? :)

Hey Darlin's!

We haven't spoken in almost a year, & for that, I apologize.

Having left a long-term abusive relationship, my life has been a whirlwind - & my blog neglected due to the loss of technology.

I now have a tablet, & will be much more active in documenting life. ;D

Glad to see you all again!

The Gothy Blog Challenge Day 14: Goths I Would Love to Meet

Hey, ya'll!

There are a few goths I would be head over heels (& six feet under, hee hee!) to meet!
Here are a few of 'em, & why I'd be too-excited for words when I did. C:

Kaz Loves Bats, from Youtube
I'm very personality driven on whether I like a person or not,
& Kaz aka Allison is a sweetheart with a great presence & sense of spirit
- I would really recommend checking out her channel, linked above!

Amy @ what was formerly 
She always had an enormously huge collection & amount of information about Goth 
subcultures, and was incredibly relatable & friendly to all.
However, she had what seems to be a change of heart regarding Goth a few years back & has since dropped off the grid blogosphere-wise.
She did leave us her entire archives, which still portray her as she was then, with very fun articles, to boot! 
: ) 

Photo found via Google images.
She's super silly, a 40 year-old model (she's been modeling her entire life - that picture above is recent, not from when she was younger, she still looks like that!), with amazingly creative baby bats.
What more can you want to say about the Goth culture are you age?  This is all you need!

The Gothy Blog Challenge Day 12: Combining other fashions with Goth

Hey there, hi there, ho there, lovelies!
For all my winter buddies, how is the lovely POLAR VORTEX ( . . . of doom xD) treating you?  For everyone NOT covered in 8 feet of snow, how are ya'll?

Now then. ^^

Do I combine other fashions with 'Goth'?
That is not really my style these days.  I like black, I like skirts, I like shit-kicker boots, and I don't mix that with much else, really.
However . . .

I have in the past.

See Bubblegum Goth//Crazy (Rainbow)Bright here.
See Renaissance, Kelby Hart style here.
See Detroit Institute of Art contract, here.

Granted, most of these outfits are me, not willing to let go of my own aesthetics for events.
But they are still mixed with goth styling. C;

A style I really, really like mixed with Goth:
Punk Lolita (Punk Loli, for all those who remember how this blog started - the lolita ties!)

What are you're favorite fashions to combine with Goth? 
What elements do you pull from your styles around you?
Comment & let me know - I'm a curious critter! :3

The Gothy Blog Challenge Day 11: 3 Trends I Wish Would Come Back

Well, I'm the type of person to say "Trends be damned!" and wear what I want.

So instead of 3 trends I wish would come back, I'll list 3 trends I like!

#1  Plaid Skirts
I went to Catholic school for half my life.
My family literally had to trash my wool green plaid skirt from elementary school before I would give the damn thing up. ;D

Tulle is highly underrated.
I just want it for the one patch.
I'm so transparent. XD
I don't dig green normally, but this looks smashing!

#2 Motorcycle Boots
I love me some big shit-kicking boots!
My mom has this awesome pair from 15+ years ago that she gave me, and they have this huge heel, and OHMYGOSH - they're the best!

I only like 3 straps or so - not a ton.
It takes away from the aesthetic value.
Look at those details, mates!

#3 Fairy wings
If you weren't expecting this, you haven't been around long enough, hee hee!
These are glorious!
These are all things I dig . . . though I don't wear the wings unless I'm running around at a Ren Faire. ;D

Photo credit to Google Images today, ya'll!
What are your three most popular outfit staples?
