Dark & Jockey






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!

This post, as you may have noticed, is largely inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s exquisite style! I’ve always had a weakness for dark vintage outfits, and this Newspaper Black & White dress from Modcloth couldn’t be more perfect for such looks! As I’m always looking for the classiest and most elegant combination for all of my Dark/Goth outfits, I find cinematic icons such as Ms Hepburn, Morticia Addams and Cruella Deville pretty inspiring!

The simplicity & yet mystery in this kind of style is IRRESISTIBLE! Just give me the perfect black sunglasses and hat, and I couldn’t feel darker & classier!

Rosemary Velour Dress

Hello Darklings, and welcome to the very first post on this blog! Too much excitement going on!

If there ever had to exist a fabric synonymous of elegance and class, it would definitely have to be Velvet. And what better way to affirm our Dark style in the office than wearing a gorgeous & chic velour dress?

I have stumbled upon Disturbia’s Rosemary Velour Dress a few months ago, and it immediately drew my attention to its eccentric elegance, especially within its creative ‘Alien’ buttons (close-up down below). I then thought to myself: “now there’s a dress with a strong dark character”. Unfortunately, it was sold out. I wanted it so bad that I requested a restock. The customer service told me that it won’t be part of the following collection, and they are not planning on restocking it. I was so disappointed that I ended up looking for the dress on every other retail website, or for a similar one. Without success, though. I only knew one thing: this amazing fabric, the white collar and the sublime alien buttons filled with character are meant for me, for my quite affirmed gothic personality. And then, just when I had already given up, it was up and selling on the website again! I ordered it right away, and decided to share my victory with you as my first post on this blog adventure!

Hope it is to your liking!
