Woolworths Velvet Leggings | Jay Jays Top | Trafaluc. @ ZARA Boots | Topshop Choker | Topshop Hat | Swarovski Spiral Ring | Gifted(from Mom) Teardrop Rings | RE: @ Woolworths Skull Ring | Vintage Cuff
I have always been intrigued by the dark and mysterious features of Goth fashion. What especially mesmerized me was the use of different textures like lace, leather and velvet altogether. Having saying this though, I have only admired this daring form of expression from afar, finding it very impractical to adopt the style myself. With “Goth” and “Glam Rock” being somewhat in right now, there are many Goth-inspired pieces in the stores and I found a way to bring Goth-like elements into my usual look. This outfit is what I’ve come up with.
I love this top because it’s just… fun! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen it in a photo or two because I’ve been wearing it a lot lately. The velvet leggings are one of the most comfortable things I own. I got them two years ago from Woolworths and they still look and feel new.
My Mom bought me the teardrop rings last weekend in Ballito. I love the Ying-Yang sort of effect they have when worn together. The cuff was also bought by my Mom sometime in the early 90s in Saudi Arabia. It is hand-engraved, sterling silver with enamel details. I’m sure you all know the Swarovski spiral ring (From Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors” music video) because I couldn’t stop blabbing about it when I got it!
OH MY GOTH! It’s almost the weekend! 😉
Until next time
