#FatshionFebruary, Day 3

You can thank Fatshion February for the fact that I got all Goth-ed up instead of wearing sweatpants to watch the Puppy Bowl.  (Although I do love my leopard and pink leopard fuzzy sweatpants, so you’ll probably see them sometime this month.)

These boots…I love these boots. I’ve had them since I was 15, which makes them 12 years old now. They’re less comfortable than they used to be–and my life involves a lot more walking than it did in high school–so I only wear them around the house now. But I still love the hell out of them.

Twirling!

I got this vaguely tutu-esque skirt from Sealed With a Kiss. I had bought a lace peplum top from them, but while it looked white in the picture, it was actually a much darker shade of beige, which didn’t do it for me. I could only return it for store credit, so I ended up getting this skirt once it went on sale. It’s not the same as a real, fluffy, gothy tutu, but it’s still pretty cool. And like the blazer, it can double as business-casual wear.

I used to have so much Goth jewelry–including a wonderful cameo necklace from Target, and a Victorian-esque choker from Hot Topic. But sadly, most of it has broken over time. Curse you, cheap jewelry.

Yes, this blazer has pockets! They’re a bit awkwardly placed, but still useful.

I have a longstanding love affair with roses, in any form.

I got the bracelet with the key charms in Israel when I went on Birthright six years ago. The beads used to be iridescent, but unfortunately they’ve lost most of their shimmer.

…And then I came inside to warm up and get hydrated. It’s important to have cups that match your outfit, right? 😉

  1. I love everything about everything in this post. Maybe I’m a secret goth. My partner does say that I have ennui. Especially the… corset? Is that what it’s called? Very beautiful.

  2. I love your top! I wish I have something like that. It’s snowing like crazy here in Michigan today, so I can’t pull off a look like that in this weather. XD
    I really need to go shopping; I’m running out of clothes to wear…
    But seriously. I love your goth look.

  3. I don’t like labels, but for all intents and purposes … I’ve been goth since i was 13. 12 years later I’m still going, but I put on weight and none of my cute clothes fit any more 😦 It’s refreshing to see that goths can still be sexy and cute with out needing to be a size two. The other spectrum I see are the heavy set goth girls that don’t care what they look like at all and just look sloppy. It’s hard to dress when you are of a certain size and enjoy a certain style. I’m glad you have that down to a science! More power to you for this blog! You look awesome!

    • Thanks! I’m appreciate that you like my style, and I know what it’s like to gain weight and have a hard time finding goth clothing. I’m not ok with judging other goth girls–or anyone, really–though. It’s perfectly ok not to care what you look like! It’s perfectly ok to look “sloppy,” whatever that means. Other people are just trying to live their lives, and they don’t exist to look pretty for you or me or anyone.
