Concert Night!

I got to have a really exciting day yesterday. I went with my boyfriend to NYC and saw The World Inferno Friendship Society. they were playing Irving Plaza with Rasputina, and it was a really fun show. My boyfriend and I decided to make a day out of it and go shopping and walk around and have a yummy dinner out.

Zombie Rock

I got to go and see Max Brooks today! For those of you who don't know, he's the guy who wrote The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, which is now being made into a movie. He's also the son of the legendary Mel Brooks. I am a big fan of both, and picked up a new zombie themed journal to get signed. While on line Max heard me talking about his awesome dad, so he signed my book in a kind of funny way.
Max Brooks is a funny guy

Boheme Black

I got a new dress! Spring is here and so is the inevitable rise of crazy pastels and florals. So I halfway gave in a got this. I like that it's still mostly dark, but still a bit more femme and fun than my normal choices. Also, still rocking a jacket because NY doesn't understand it's now Spring.

Current Fashion Inspo

Right now my fashion radar is all about more fun and overtly goth pieces. In Winter it's easy to toss on layers of black shirts and tights and sweaters but as Sping arrives (kind of, there's still fracking snow), I feel the need to be more OTT goth, just to contrast a bit with the rising tide of pastel and florals.

Rainy Day Samba

So my trip to The Met was pushed back to tomorrow which means doing a ton of schoolwork today. Here's how I feel about that.

My Life in Instagram

Spring Break is under way but it sure doesn't seem like Spring. Snow and rain and lots of wind. So inside time it is. Been cuddling with my bunny, Mochi, shopping and eating out. It's nice to have extra time to spend with my boyfriend, so yay for that!

How I first found out about Goth fashion

I always liked goth stuff as a kid. The Tripp pants and fishnet and crazy hair all seemed amazingly cool to me, even back then. When I was in jr high I started to associate myself with the punk label, loving all things strange and over the top and alternative. I had a friend who let me borrow her Tripp pants and we hung out and read Jhonen Vasquez comics at her house. The idea of embracing everything gross and dark and creepy and seeing how fun it really was just kind of stuck with me after that.

St Pats Day Punk

To me, St Patricks day is a very punk holiday. There's loud music and parties and you drink a lot and have fun. So in honor of that I got a Dropkick Murphy shirt and tossed on a fun, rough and rowdy look. I also loved having a chance to wear this vest, the DIY horror punk elements can be a bit hard to match.

On the Up and Up

So I wore this to class a few days ago, trying to get as much use out of these shoes as I can. I really love them they're comfier than they look and I feel like the height makes my legs look good.

Cold Again

It's getting cold again! There's even a chance it might snow again tonight. That news kind of upset me as it was just starting to get warm finally. So I dug up some fun winter stuff and tossed it on. I really like this look, I'm trying to get more interesting, dynamic outfits, and the combo of fur, destroyed knit, grey stripes and the platform sneakers is kind of fun. I like how it's a rock/goth look without being trad goth at all.

Goth Challenge - Why don't I wear Goth all the time?

This is a tricky question for me.I don’t have a non goth wardrobe. Just about everything I have fits my personal dark aesthetic, but I do have certain items which I combine to get more of a casual, dark hipster vibe. That means more grey and white and less “goth” accessories. I also like more punk and streetwear influences on non goth days.
