Just another excuse to shop
It's the first year that I'm not returning to school and I'm really relieved about that. But, I have to admit that I do miss back to school shopping. Every September I would get excited, not for school of course, but because I could show off all the neat shit I bought over the summer! It's a drag that I've been dirt poor and unable to buy new wardrobe items but I've been having fun sewing my own clothing (...except all the problems I've been experiencing with this last pattern, you'll hear more on that soon). I can't help but get the itch to shop again. I've been browsing online catalogs and web shops and amassed a few outfits I would love to have. Perhaps these mood boards might inspire you! : )
(Photo at top of post) I love this look, it has a traditional goth feel to it with a contemporary edge. It also kind of reminds me of Gothic Lolita. It makes me think of the movie The Craft, which you should watch if you never have.

I love blood red, not that fake blood red that looks like tomato soup, I mean deep and sultry blood red. This outfit is sex and I need it. I have a new found infatuation with velvet even though I use to despise it. Perhaps it's the cool weather, but I need me some velvet shoes and matte burgundy lipstick.

Leader of the Occult
When I was a child I would dress up in my girl scout uniform and pretend I was Dana Scully. I also had a massive crush on Fox Mulder. Kinda messed up when you consider I was only seven lol. I've never let go of my fascination with the supernatural, even though I'm much more skeptical now. This outfit speaks to my more curious side. I love these symbol leggings because right now I'm crazy about black and white prints. I also like a hint of colour in my wardrobe, which is what attracted me to these shoes and accessories. I like how they have an outer space vibe.

Bottoms - Banned Gothic Pentagram Leggings
Shoes - Aldo Baellan Sneakers
Earrings - Body Vibe Ombre Faux Tapers
Necklace - Extreme Largeness Space Illuminati Necklace
We got this in the bag
I own a lot of purses and backpacks, so it's not like I need more of them. But if I did, these would be hot contenders. I already have a holographic purse from the 90's and I'm still smitten with the look. I miss the raver days. As I mentioned before, I'm really into black and white prints and Ouija prints appear to be a hot number at the moment. I also have a soft spot for sugar skulls.
