I want to share my experience on how I learnt to prioritise my goals without stopping my love for alternative style. A story about a suitcase and a no buying spree.
As a disclaimer, I’m not saying you must go this route, this is just the way things worked out for me.
Minimalism in style is quite easy to grasp, specially when your wardrobe is achromatic and stripped to essentials already. However, the term Minimalist Goth may seem like a juxtaposition since Classic Gothic garments are quite elaborate. But as a creative, style choice the idea is absolutely possible.
It’s finally October and Fall is falling in place. I sat down in front the laptop with a piece of dark, chilli infused chocolate, a bit of tea and browsed for new gothic accoutrements. There’s something in the atmosphere that makes me want to splurge, perhaps and most notably the fact that the heat is slowly becoming less life threatening and clothes make sense again!
So instead of just eyeing the cyber aisles of black clad clothes by myself, I’m taking you with me. You might just fall in love with a bunch of things as well!
The weather behaved nicely over the past weekend. After months of hell-fire it’s finally pouring. Hence I merrily turned on the oven I call laptop in order to blog.
This was my last outfit post from Austin, TX. Fall hadn’t really begun there, but this was nice to wear in places with air conditioner.
I was contacted by MoodSwings to showcase one of their tattoo artist shirts. As I scrolled down the webshop I fell in love with many designs (below I picked ten additional shirts to LOVE!). You can shop by colour, theme or artist. A really helpful guide when you find a style you love. For example, I’ve loved J Larkin’s artwork for years and Moodswings carries prints and shirts of his work!
I’ve been hiding under umbrellas (in lack of parasols) and the shadow of trees for the past two months. Covered in sun-block, yet enjoying another all-black summer outfit.
After many hours of work (behind the camera, post processing and designing) I’m proud to announce the launch of Tropical Darkness a Red Bubble exclusive collection!
Psychedelic patterns are formed with photographs I’ve taken of the many juxtaposed moods found in tropical nature. The deep colours of the caribbean now decorate useful paraphernalia such as leggings, scarves and bags. I’m literally obsessed with the final result.
This look was inspired by preppy style basics such as polo shirts, sweaters and plaid skirts. I’ve been building myself a basic black wardrobe for a long time, so obviously when I say preppy I also mean the dark counterpart.
I wanted to show you guys my new green roomies and I took pictures of my casual outfit that day as well.
I remember not wanting to go. I considered the occasion a waste of my time, but mostly it was the bad music what made me gag. My friends described Prom Night as that once in a life opportunity to feel like a rockstar walking down the red carpet. While I didn’t care about these things, my friends were really looking forward to it and expected me to join them. So after refusing during all my high-school years, I accepted the challenge and tagged along at the last minute.
But, I had no idea what could I wear.
