Back From The Ashes: July, August & September

Hello again, dear lovelies.  This is Part 2 of my birthstone outfits.  This post covers my birthstone outfits from July to September.  Bright red, lime green, and deep blue – all great colors to add to a gothic wardrobe.  Whether it’s your hair, shoes, or accessories, adding color to either of these attributes will pop against an all-black outfit.

 

JULY – Ruby

 

This video starts off with me talking about the layoff from my job, but it is also an OOTD video.  Ruby is an obvious favorite since it matches my hair color.  My outfit is towards the end of the video, starting at 05:11.

Lime green and black are perfect for gothic fashion.  The black horns and lace complete the outfit.  Peridot is only one of two gemstones formed from molten rock, not from the Earth’s crust.  The other gemstone formed from molten rock is the Diamond.

I’m wearing blue lipstick again.  I was inspired by sapphires – how could I not wear blue lipstick?  The outfit’s pretty basic: just a t-shirt, sparkly belt, and black pantaloons.  Sapphires also represent royalty and divinity.

Peace, love, and darkness,

Dasia Denise
