Hello, Darklings!

How’s your summer going so far? Long time no see!

I decided to take pictures of this Gothy/Witchy elegant summer outfit, while I was having my black coffee on an early Saturday morning! The calm is priceless! As you might have already noticed, I’m a raging caffeine addict and any coffee-related activity gets me excited like hell!

So there, I enjoyed wearing this wonderful flowy Disturbia dress a lot. It’s perfect for the summer, give it a try!

Farewell Tribute to the band of my heart: HIM

Hello Darklings!

A few days ago, a very sad news came to my attention. My favourite band – HIM – announced their farewell tour for 2017! This came as a complete shock, but also kind of expected. The truth is, the band’s two last albums took a very long time to release (average of three years) and they marked a breaking point with the band’s musical identity. It was just not the same anymore. The dark, melancholic, melodic and heavy essence of HIM was missing. Nonetheless, I will always cherish the wonderful moments I’ve shared with this band for the past 10 years and will continue to do so.

On that note, I’d like to share my personal message to the band with you:

“I’m devastated, you have played such a major part in my life and still do. You give me strength, hope and drive. “You’re gone with the sin my baby, and beautiful you are”. For me, you are eternal. I love you Ville, thank you for making my life one full Heartagram. See you one last time in Luxembourg. I love you.”

Hello, Darklings!

I have previously mentioned in another post, how much I absolutely love military fashion, especially military jackets & coats! That’s why laying my hands on this gorgeous Marks & Spencer military coat, was one of the best moments this winter! I’ve been eyeing several military outwear pieces since the beginning of autumn, but never came across something that really spoke to me. It has definitely become my statement piece for most of my winter witchy outfits. The simple straight cut and the placement of the buttons, make it so elegant and badass at the same time (yes you can be an elegant badass!).

Taking pictures for this outfit took place on the perfect cold day. Like most Goths, I dread the sun, but I sometimes do not mind it when it’s hiding behind a covered sky, rendering it grey and icy.

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday, cocooning with a cup of hot black coffee!

Hello, Darklings!

This blog post is dedicated to my obsession with the ‘Jockey’ style. I’ve always had a weakness for the hats, boots, blazers and trousers in this kind of outfit. And since the ‘brown’ colour is predominant in this style, I decided to give it a ‘Dark’ vibe by combining several black clothing pieces with a nice Jockey hat from ‘& Other Stories’ (it was love at first sight), a clear shirt and one my favourite pairs of patent oxfords. The truth is, this is one of my favourite elegant/casual autumn outfits, hope you like it!

Hello, Darklings!

Autumn (and Winter of course) has always been the “Gothiest” season of them all! I couldn’t be happier to be able to post Autumn outfit ideas for you guys! There’s such a peaceful and beautiful melancholic darkness in this season, that one wishes to snuggle in it forever. I really wanted to feel extra Goth today, so I decided to take the pictures for this post in the most Gothic town in Alsace: Sélestat, the Gothic vibe in it is extremely strong. If you ever happen to be visiting Alsace, definitely stop by this adorable medieval little town!

When I think of Gothic elegance in Autumn, I cannot help but run to my favourite fabric ever: Velvet! Just cover me from head to toe in velvet, and I’ll be the happiest person ever. There’s such an exquisite sophistication in any kind of velvet clothing especially when it’s either black, dark red or dark purple (the inevitable Gothic trio, I know right?). The key piece here is this gorgeous Victorian black velvet coat, it is simply outstanding and extremely flattering.

I’m also a quite big fan of plaid dresses and skirts, so there wouldn’t be a better idea than to combine my velvet passion with my plaid one all in one post! This outfit is definitely one of my most elegant and classiest ones. I simply love it. Hope it is to your liking too!

Hello, Darklings!

My apologies for being away for a while, I’ve been quite busy for the last couple of weeks. But I’m back now with an exciting new post!

As a Goth, you all know by now that my colour preference goes to mainly black and dark purple indigo, but hey, when the colour is beautiful, eccentric (and alternative/dark), there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be added to our alternative palette! I was totally mind-blown by the metallic pattern (yes metallics are in again this autumn!) and colours of this Teddy bomber jacket by Maje. It makes me feel like a Gothic mermaid (plus it has my name: Teddy can be used as a short version for Theodora). It can be styled with both casual and formal outfits, truly amazing and perfect for autumn.

Her Infernal Purpleness

Her Infernal Purpleness #5 (1 of 1)

Hello, Darklings!

Since I mentioned in my last post my long-time obsession with the Dark Purple colour, I thought this outfit would be the perfect opportunity to tell you briefly the story behind “Her Purple Eyes”.

“Her Purple Eyes” was/still is one of my first Gothic nicknames that was given to me long, long time ago by someone I used to know. Purple has always been my favourite colour as it symbolises the majesty and beauty I love so much about the Gothic culture. Black has always been a preference, but Purple, this ROYAL colour is inseparable from my personality. The divinity in this colour makes it like no other. And every time someone asks me about my purple obsession, I always reply: “not just any PURPLE, the DARK, COLD, MAJESTIC PURPLE (or simply INDIGO Purple)!

To come back briefly to this person I was talking about, let’s just say they kind of baptised my purple majesty with “her purple eyes” because, in their mind, I’ll always have purple eyes. And then stemming from this nickname, different people I’ve known/still know have given/keep giving me nicknames related to my “Purpleness”. One of the very first and most used ones I got are: “Purple Lady, Purple Witch, Her Infernal Purpleness, Purpulina…” The years proved this simple preference to become a wonderful concept and myth around which so many things about me revolve. My Purple Darkness has become a defining element of my being. Amazing. The story of “her purple eyes” will never stop growing, for whatever I do is tainted by “purpleness”.
