My fashion is very simple, unlike most things in my life. I like to wear minimalistic clothes. It’s the one aspect of my life that I feel like I can control myself.
What I mean is…I have a habit of collecting, stockpiling, overcomplicating things.
So when winter comes, it comes with complications. Snow complications. Complications finding motivation. Complicated outfits.
You need a coat. You need a scarf. You need gloves. You need boots. You need a hat.
It’s an event just putting everything on to go outside for just a quick walk to the car!
It’s easy to find black winter clothes, but how to accessorize them and turn it into an outfit in and of itself is another story. At least for me it is.
This is going to be my first winter fully embracing my goth aesthetic.
So the hunt began for a coat that I could wear reliably that would keep me warm and more importantly, keep me cute.
I found the most perfect coat in the history of coats.
It’s quilted on the inside, fits perfectly and it’s got corset lacing on the back. It’s a lot. And it’s perfect. I opted for the red because I felt like I needed more red in my wardrobe and I thought that it was more striking and fitting than the all black version.
It’s a Hell Bunny coat and I first saw it on Modcloth, but they didn’t have my size. I had to hunt the internet to find the 2X and I found one on eBay for a total of $95. It was MUCH cheaper than Modcloth ($169.99).
It’s amazing what a bit of internet detective-ing can do.
Now I don’t have to compromise my aesthetic in order to keep warm and toasty this winter.
