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 militaryΒ 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!

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: SΓ©lestat, 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!

Metal Fest #8 (1 of 1)

Hello, Darklings!

Since it is still music festivals season, I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite Metal Festival outfits. It is ALWAYS important to wear light clothing especially if you are a metalhead and even more so if you are a GOTHIC metalhead such as myself. Platform boots are a very essential part of our festival looks since that’s the place where you can completely reveal your true self (particularly fashion-wise) without any social judgement. Unfortunately, the summer heat poses often a problem to alternative fashion creativity. That’s why the BEST option for us metal chicks, is wearing extremely thin (mesh in my case) black dresses, and at the same time remaining creative (there’s such a wild range of alternative dresses out there). I am personally a big fan of KILLSTAR dresses as they don’t use the usual uncomfortable corsetry in their designs. I think most of you out there will agree with me in that corset dresses are EXTREMELY uncomfortable to wear at such events, they suck the fun out of them in fact. In my case, I chose this gorgeous Hockey mesh dress with a very cool statement on it and paired it with cotton black shorts & a black sports bra underneath. This way I get to wear my kick-ass DEMONIA platform sneakers without worrying about being too warm or getting my feet into mud/sand (which can be the case if I’m wearing sandals).

This year, I decided to go to a smaller festival, as I’ve been attending some huge ones for the past few years. This summer was full of concerts where I live and nearby so I’ve been attending “one-day fests” and the most exciting one will be taking place this August in Colmar – France, called “Hard Rock Session” combining some legendary headliners such as Arch Enemy, Slayer & Limp Bizkit. The even cooler thing about it is that it’s part of a wine fair! So, if any of you, dear readers, is going to this festival, let me know, this way we can meet & enjoy the concerts together! Cheers!

Gothic Metal Song of the day: Nymphetamine by Cradle of Filth.

P.S. I would also love to know which festivals you attended/are going to attend this summer!Β
