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.
The first night was great! I was in front row (Arena) for all the bands that night. Actually, it was the best night since I managed to take my camera inside the Gramercy Theatre during the event (sorry guys!). Happy me is happier with a camera in hand. Here’s what I wore on the first night, pictures of the event and a video. Let the show begin!

This is a little project I did to customize these old sneakers, some acrylic paint and of course my favorite tool: nail polish! After painting them thoroughly and letting them dry I sprayed a little bit of clear sealant. After a pair of new shoelaces… behold my kitsch foot-candy.
I made two dresses today, look.

I don’t think my words are needed to describe why I picked these. Every piece shouts decadent elegance and a flawless eye for detail. Thought I don’t approve make-up wise, that Manson-esque big mouth is an instant refusal.
