Warning you may hate me after reading this post. This post that is also known as Trends I Thought I Loved, but Now I’m Not too Keen on (don’t you love the segue?) from Darkstalker Girl’s Gothy Blog Challenge that you can find here, aka that blog challenge I forgot about forever plus a year.

There are a lot of pictures on this blog where I’m wearing items that I would never wear at my current point in life. I suppose that’s just something that happens when you’ve been doing outfit posts for, like, three years (especially through my baby bat phase). I’m not ashamed, I can giggle at myself; but I understand that that just isn’t the person I am anymore. So, in the aim of moving past those things and the stereotypes that I’ve forced onto myself unknowingly bellow are some stereotypical Goth elements I just can’t even anymore.
Demonia Shoes (or Platform boots with all the buckles)
Don’t get me wrong. I love platforms. I also love boots. I just stopped liking the kinda flat-form thing that makes me look like I have gigantic feet. When I was a young bat I wore my Demonia’s quite a lot. There are lots of outfit posts where I’m wearing them but it’s time for me to move to other shoes! There’s no way in hell I’m throwing them out from under my bed though.
This is a bit different from the boots. I love corsets. They’re gorgeous and they can make an outfit (or lack there of) look stunning. I may wear my favourite in the future, and I’m sure as hell never letting them go. But I’ve found that under-busts have never worked with my shape properly and because of this combined with my lack of appropriate clothes to wear with a corset – which people often forget is a thing – I don’t have many options to wear with my overbust. But for the record I’m still very proud of this outfit.
And again (you must be sick of my explainations by now) this look can look beautiful within my own frame of what I call what-I-find-pretty and that shouldn’t stop anyone from rocking it. But to be blunt, most of the time I just don’t think it looks very nice.
No-no-no. Wait! Don’t leave! I adore lace, to an extent that cannot be shown in a written form. I’m just sick of horrible quality lace and I’m sick of people not understanding what quality lace is (or can be, reach for the skies people!) AND I’m sick of mainstream stores never using quality lace, even on pricier items. Yes, my ranty-face was bound to show up on this blog eventually. I just, I can’t even continue with this paragraph is how annoyed this makes me.
Fess up guys, what do you really hate?
