Pin-Up with No Pin-Up Gals

I’ve been into vintage and rockabilly fashion since I discovered it was a thing, at about age 13. My love of history and old things morphed into something that dictates my day to day style. Starting with one vintage style dress at age 14, and now able to do vintage hair styling and makeup. But […]

The Gothic Shoe Company – Winkelpickers Review

I found the London based The Gothic Shoe company through youtube vlogger It’s Black Friday (a favourite of mine, as you know). She highly recommended their boots, so for Christmas I asked my parents to get me a pair. I really wanted the four strap bat-buckle winklepickers in black patent leather, however that was not […]

Outfit- Old School Goth for The Damned

The Damned have been a part of my life for my entire life. There is a large framed poster of their album Phantasmagoria on the wall of the study, and I grew up watching The Young Ones so I remember them from the episode “Nasty”. But it wasn’t until about the age of 17 or 18 […]

Haul – Boohoo.com

Anyone in the Goth community, especially those of the trad-Goth persuasion, MUST check out boohoo.com. Anyone who thinks that someone of a certain sub-culture must only shop at places that proclaim themselves to be a part of that sub-culture, like the many Goth brands out there, are kidding themselves. Boohoo is what you might call […]

Oh My Katie!

I remember thinking, maybe a week before I made this purchase, “one day…one day, I will have a What Katie Did corset. One day.” Next thing I knew, I did! I’d been on the hunt for corsets since I set foot on English soil. My second cousin was getting married, and her wedding theme was […]

Just You’re Average Friday

I cannot believe I didn’t think to blog about this. It was so exciting and so relatable to the themes of this blog!  I arrived in Amsterdam in the late afternoon and decided to suck it up and walk the 30 minute walk to my hostel, despite my suitcase.  As I was nearing somewhere near […]

Goth Paradise

To be fair, while Kutná Hora’s Sedlec Ossuary, also known as the bone chapel, may seem like the sort of attraction only visited by weird people, it is in fact the opposite. The small chapel is decorated with the bones of roughly 40,000-70,000 people, and is visitef by hoards of tourists of all walks of […]

Ich Liebe Berlin

For my birthday I received two gift cards to my favourite place, Honey Birdette. TWO! I had a $150 to spend. Needless to say, I was pretty ecstatic. The girls at work know me so well. I invested in a piece I’ve been lusting over for months, Berlin. Previously I had tried the bra and garter set, […]

Lovely Jubley

I have recently discovered the wonders of accessory brand Jubley-Umph. She is a Melbourne based artist who creates sailor tattoo-like images using water colours and indian ink. Being a lover of the classic sailor tattoo, and an even bigger lover of interpretations of it, I adore this brand. I purchased one of the brooches, “Sew […]

The Goth Inside

Growing up in a household that played the likes of the Damned, the Sisters of Mercy, the Mission and the Nephilim, where there were real human skulls and dragon goblets on the mantle piece, and a headless angel statue in the garden (we got it cheap because of the detached head) there was no doubt I was going […]
