OOTW: Gothic Fashion for Fall Equinox

image

Hello, lovelies!  Guess what?  Autumn has arrived!  Yesterday was the official first day of Autumn (Fall Equinox).  Now our days will get shorter and our nights will get longer.  To honor “the season of goths”,  I decided to wear all-black this week.  Not that I need a reason to wear all-black (*wink*).  The weather’s still a bit humid in my area, but it’s also been raining.  At least it’s not as hot outside.

 

DAY ONE

Here’s what I wore on Tuesday.  Just a simple tunic with occult leggings.  The platform boots give me height without torturing my feet.  This tunic is one of my favorite pieces.  Very comfortable.

I wore my dread beads again along with my small, coffin earrings.  I seem to wear these accessories all of the time.  Can you tell that they’re favorites of mine?

DAY TWO

On Wednesday, I wore my “goddess” dress.  I love the draping of this dress and it’s another comfortable piece.  It’s also somewhat reversible; I can wear it with the tie in the back or in the front.  I like the tie in the back, to better show off my necklaces.

Here’s my face for Wednesday.  I wore just a touch of chartreuse eye shadow to highlight my new, green contacts.  The green contacts are subtle, but I prefer a slight change in eye color rather than an obvious change.  Plus, they’re prescription contacts which are easier to find in subtle, colored contacts.

DAY THREE – Fall Equinox

Here’s the final outfit that I wore yesterday.  The outfit is pretty basic, but it’s spruced up by lots of accessories!  As you probably know by now, comfort is king for me.

Here’s my makeup, which mirrors my outfit: basic makeup with lots of accessories.  I drew a simple, “tribal” mark – just a line down the middle of my forehead.

That’s it for now, my dear lovelies.  Pretty soon, we’ll be dressing in layers of black.  Woot!  And you know what else in on the way – Halloween!  I’ve included an OOTW video.   Please enjoy.

Love & Shimmies,

Dasia Denise

OOTD & MOTD for September’s Birthstone: Sapphire

sapphire1_fotor

Sapphire pic via Photobucket.  Sapphire info via Crystal Vaults and American Gem Society®.

Hello, lovelies!  Today’s look is inspired by September’s birthstone, Sapphire.  Due to its blue color, sapphires have represented hope, faith, and “divine favor” during ancient and Medieval times.  “Medieval clergy wore sapphires to symbolize heaven”, while the common people believed that sapphires brought heavenly blessings.  Sapphires also represented wisdom, and was cherished by royalty since ancient Greece. 

Sapphires come in many colors including green, blue, violet, and even black.  However, sapphires do not come in red.  “Red sapphires” are actually rubies, both gems being a form of corundum.  The most prized sapphires are “medium to medium dark blue or slightly violet-blue”.  

Star sapphires occur when corundum is grown “with fibrous inclusions of rutile“.  When these stones are cut into cabochons, small rays of light are reflected, creating six (sometimes twelve) rays.  The rays form a star and appear to glide across the stone when turned.  Star sapphires in a pale, cornflower blue are the most prized.  The most well known star sapphire is the Star of India, which was found around 300 years ago. It is housed at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.  The three rays that make up the six-pointed star represent “faith, hope and destiny”.

New Pikes & Freeform Dreads: Month 16

image

Hello, lovelies!  I’m a bit late in posting an update on my dreadlocks, but I had a major system fail this past weekend.  Like an idiot, I didn’t back up my system and I had to create a new YouTube channel since I’ve lost access to my old one.  GRRRR!  The good news is, I was smart enough to save my videos, so I’m working on re-uploading them to my new channel.  The huge lesson I learned is to BACK UP MY COMPUTER SYSTEM.

 

Anyhoo, let’s move on to what I wore.  It was another hot and humid day with NO BREEZE WHATSOEVER.  So I kept it very simple with a shirt dress and leggings:

image

Here are my new winklepickers!  Woot!  The flat soles and low cut of these shoes may not suit my body type, but I really don’t care.  I absolutely love them.  They’re handmade with black suede and pentacle buckles, purchased from The Gothic Shoe Company.  They also have a store on Etsy.

image

 

image

 

My face was even more simple than my outfit.  Just eyeliner and lipstick.  I added a silver moon stamp for a bit of flair:

And finally, here’s the update on my dreadlocks.  They’re getting longer and thicker, which makes me very happy!

That’s it for now, lovelies.  It’s been a frustrating week, but some lessons are learned the hard way.  Please check out my new channel, Gothic SoulFlower.  To start fresh, I’ve added another OOTD video to my new channel.  Please enjoy.

OOTD: Gothic Boho In Black & White

 B&W-Day1_MOTD2a

Hello, fellow darklings.  This is another weekly outfit post providing proof that goths do wear white (sometimes).  It’s interesting how I can dress the same way in white and the compliments that I receive are many.  So, this week’s theme was black and white.

 

DAY ONE

Day One was a hot and humid day, so the majority of my clothes were white, accented with black.  I wore a black sun hat, a perfect way to keep cool in the heat.

image
PROJECT 666 Staples: Sun hat (H2), RuPaul t-shirt (S18), White 25-yd. skirt (Skt8), Tall moccasin boots (Snd1)

Here’s my makeup.  Day One is the day I wore the heaviest makeup, even though it was humid.  I went with an ’80s vibe to go with the cross earrings and ’80s icon, RuPaul.

DAY TWO

On Day Two my sweetie and I were invited to a cookout.  I wanted to keep things light and breezy, so I went with white lace and a black, frilly skirt.  I kept jewelry to a minimum.

DAY THREE

The weather was gorgeous on Day Three!  I think Fall is slowly trying to set in. Okay maybe not yet, but the weather felt more like autumn weather than summer.  No complaints from me!  My outfit is almost the opposite of Day One: mostly black clothes accented with white.

image

Here’s my makeup – or lack of makeup.  Just eyeliner since I wore my glasses.  I was also being lazy.  Luckily, my eyeglasses have a touch of bling so not too boring (I hope).  You can say my lack of makeup is the opposite of Day One’s heavier makeup.

Well, that’s it for now.  I’m thinking of doing outfits of the week posts instead of just one outfit per post.  I like showing multiple outfits at once, at least for video.  What do you think?  Do you prefer viewing one outfit at a time or many?  Share in the comments.

MOTD & OOTD for August’s Birth Flower: Gladiolus

GSF-Gladiolus.main

Gladiolus pic via Photobucket. Gladiolus info via What’s My Birth Flower?.

Today’s outfit is inspired by the birth flower of August, the Gladiolus.  Gladioli have sword-shaped leaves and bright, funnel-shaped flowers.  The name “gladiolus” comes from gladius, the Latin word for “sword”.  The is in reference to the flower’s sword-shaped leaves.  This flower was the flower of gladiators in ancient Rome, where “the victor was buried under gladioli by cheering crowds in celebration”.  Gladioli were presented to symbolize moral character, strength, and honor.  Given as a gift, the gladiolus also represents “love at first sight”.

 

GLADIOLUS INFO & SYMBOLISM

TITLE: Sword Lily

GENUS: Gladiolus

TYPES: Over 260 species divided into winter blooming, summer blooming, and hybrids

ORIGIN: Tropical and South Africa

TYPE: Perennial 

COLORS: Various solid and bi-colors including red, pink, orange, white, yellow, purple, and green 

ZODIAC SIGN: Virgo (August 24 – September 23)

USES: Used to draw splinters from the skin and used as a powder in milk to treat colic

 

Here’s what I wore.  Purple has been a big color for me this week.  I love the combination of black and purple.  The dress I wore is so comfortable and the only article of clothing that was needed.  It’s the accessories that makes this look gothic.

Here’s my face.  I used the same eyeshadow and silver pencil that I used in my Gothic Purple tutorial.  I drew the tribal marking in the shape of a sword, since that’s where the word “gladiolus” comes from.

August is just about over with September right around the corner.  And we all know what September means: Autumn!  Besides black (obviously), purple and green are two of my favorite colors in goth fashion.  What are your favorites?

Makeup Tutorial: Gothic Purple (Reader Request)

GSF-Purple_Goth.mainpic

Hello, lovelies!  I’m so happy with this makeup tutorial.  Why?  Because it’s my first requested video from one of my readers!  Woot!  This reader thought that I should try a gothic look using purple makeup and I am happy to oblige.

 

 

Here is the list of makeup that I used.  The purple eyeshadows are from, once again, Ben Nye’s® Lumiere Creme Colour collection.  These eye cremes are a dream to wear.  The colors are vivid and they glide on your face beautifully.  Although I’ve been using their eyeshadows, this is the first time I’ve tried Ben Nye’s® Shimmer Crayon.  The application is very smooth, which can be tricky since makeup crayons can often feel waxy – like a literal crayon.

MOTD & OOTD for August’s Birthstone: Peridot

GSF-Peridot.main

Peridot pic via Photobucket.  Peridot info via Crystal Vaults and American Gem Society®.

Hello, lovelies.  Yesterday’s outfit was inspired by August’s birth stone, Peridot.  Although this birthstone is not as popular as some of the others, peridot is one of my favorite gemstones.  The vivid, lime green is hard to resist and it looks great against black.

Peridots (along with diamonds) are the only gemstones that are not formed within the Earth’s crust.  Peridots are formed from molten rock of the Earth’s upper crust, brought forth by the force of volcanoes and earthquakes.  With it’s lime- to olive-green color, peridots represent late summer and early fall, when the leaves start to change from bright green to red, yellow, and then brown.  Peridot was known as the “true Topaz” in ancient times, which comes from Topazos, named after Topazios Island in the Red Sea where the gem was first discovered.  The Egyptians held a monopoly over Topazios Island and was mined exclusively for kings.  “Peridot” comes from the Arabic word for “gem”, which is faridat.  Today, Peridot is still the National Gemstone of Egypt.

 

PERIDOT INFO & SYMBOLISM

TITLE: The Extreme Gem

COLORS: Yellowish-green to olive green

MOHS SCALE HARDNESS: 7.0

TYPE: Olivine

ZODIAC SIGN: Libra (September 23 – October 22)

DEITY: Pele, Hawaiian goddess of fire and volcanoes.  Also honors Pax, Roman goddess of peace and prosperity, and Lakshmi, Hindu goddess of fortune and abundance. 

GSF-Pele.goddess
Pele, Hawaiian goddess of fire and volcanoes (Image source)

 

DIVINATION: “Rely on luck and take a chance on a new offer or opportunity rather than holding back.”

CHAKRA: Heart (4)

HEALING PROPERTIES: Balances the endocrine system, supports the digestive system, and helps strengthen the eyes in relation to nearsightedness and astigmatism.

 

Here’s what I wore for Peridot.  It’s still summer, so I wore clothing that is lightweight.  All of my clothes were purchased on Amazon and Ebay.

Here’s my face.  This green bindi is one of my favorite ones.  The green is vivid and so pretty.  Instead of eyeliner on my bottom lids, I applied 3 coats of mascara.  I think I like this look and it’s good for an older face.

Below my signature is another OOTD video.  I’m dancing a little bit in this video and I swear that I’m a better dancer than this!  The focus was on the outfit and makeup, so I wasn’t too focused on what I was doing.  Oh, wells.

Gray Lace & Freeform Dreads: Month 15

image

Hello, dear lovelies.  Here we are with Month 15 of me growing my locs and they’re starting to get long. Woot!  As you can see, I’ve also started wearing beads in my hair and I’m loving the look!

Here’s what I wore.  Just like the title says, I finally wore my gray lace dress. You’ve seen me in this dress before – in black.  Of course, black lace is my favorite, but the gray is also a nice alternative to black.

Here’s my face.  Again, my makeup is lightweight for summer, but I make up for this with beads in my hair.  I purchased these beads from Heather Fish Designs.  I have thick dreads, and I didn’t realize how hard it can be to find beads that fit them.  Luckily, Heather makes beads with many sizes to choose from.  The beads I’m wearing are 10.5 mm.

OOTD: Gothic Fashion for Heat & Humidity

image

It was like an oven outside this week.  On Monday, the temperature reached a scorching 100° F (38° C), with 61% humidity.  That’s a heat index of 129° F (54° C).  Yikes!  Needless to say, I wore nothing special on Monday.    The video will show Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s looks; Thursday’s look was for July’s birth flower, Larkspur.  Switching from weekend to workweek mode, I almost never look my best on Mondays.  Mondays tend to be my “day off” from fashion.

 

DAY ONE

Temperature: 94° F (34° C)

Humidity: 65%

Heat Index: 114° F (45° C)

Here is Tuesday’s outfit.  Just a simple black dress with a large, black sunhat.  I wore three lightweight necklaces and my tabi boots, which are made out of cotton (the soles are rubber).  All of the items I wore were purchased on Amazon, Ebay, and other random, online stores.

image
PROJECT 666 Staples: Wide-brim summer hat (H2), Long black dress (D1), Tabi boots (B8)

Along with my lightweight jewelry, I wore minimal, cat-eye makeup and tinted lips:

DAY TWO

Temperature: 94° F (34° C)

Humidity: 51%

Heat Index: 103° F (39° C)

This is what I wore on Wednesday.  Instead of the sunhat, I decided on keeping cool with a parasol.  Again, I wore a simple dress (I call this one my “goddess” dress) and only one necklace.  I consider the necklace a statement piece, so no other necklaces were needed.

Again, I kept my makeup simple but added fake lashes to give my eyes some “oomph”.  Dark, purple lipstick and a head scarf completes the look.

That’s it lovelies.  Whew!  It’s the last day of July.  One more month of summer and then it’s back to business for me (I took a break from some things this summer).  Just FYI, the OOTD video only shows 2 of the 3 outfits that I wore this week; the outfit for Larkspur has its own video.

Does it get humid where you live?  How do you survive?  Please share in the comments.

Love & Shimmies,

Dasia Denise
