This weekend was quite the (stereotypical) gothtastic time for me. I went thrift shopping and I got some new tattoos (in addition to sitting in my darkened living room on Tumblr long after the household had gone to sleep and watching such cliche favorites as The Lost Boys). I'm not entirely certain I stuck to my shopping resolutions of previous posts, although thanks to the fabulous ARC Thrift Store's "Sale Saturday" I did manage to stick to budget with my purchases at least. Style-wise, I have decided that more boyish looks tinged with traditional Punk flare are quite suited to me.
|Something like this (minus the cigarette)|
As I continue to try turning my style into one that fits me (and stop wearing the exact same outfits I wore in high school) some sources of inspiration have been 80's Punk and Trad Goth (of course) 90's grunge, Riot Grrrl (thanks Sary for introducing me!), and even some skater/hipster style. Hopefully I'll have some history posts up soon to show you all just what I found so inspiring about these subcultures/fashion scenes! I'm also debating messing with my hair (making it shorter because its so fried.) and I still hunt for the perfect pair of ankle boots...alas I cannot afford Docs.
|These. I want.|
