How Do You Goth In Winter?

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.

 

Hellcome!

After too much faffing about, I’ve finally started this fashion blog.

Who am I?

Well, my name is Noreen. I’m a huge nerd for comics, cosmetics, coffee, cats, cinema and clothes! Specifically goth fashion. I’d describe my style as soft goth. I mostly wear simple black clothes with a touch of color here and there. Just to keep things saucy.

I spend way too much time on the internet looking for cute spooky clothes and accessories, which means I’ve accumulated a lot of cool knickknacks and that give my outfits a little something extra.

I don’t want to keep all my cool secrets to myself though! I want to show anyone who is interested in goth fashion, whether it be pastel, nu, or street where to get awesome things to amplify and electrify your looks!

I take risks and buy things from shady Chinese sites and eBay to see if they’re actually good quality. And I get surprised a lot! Because even as a “plus size” woman, I can find a lot of things that fit me and look great! I want to be able to show other women who look like me that you can wear what you love, for an affordable price and look hella.

I adore makeup and I make an effort to try and seek out small brands and independent companies because they deserve to be highlighted and recognized.

I hope you enjoy your stay~
