Goth Fashion for March: Aquamarine

Hello, lovelies!  My apologies for the late post.  It’s still March so it’s technically not late, but my video was posted 2 weeks ago.  Eek!  A week before the first day of Spring (March 20), we got a little bit of snow, and I just had to wear an all-black outfit.   I love the look of all -black on fresh, white snow.  It highlighted not only my black outfit, but the icy-blue bindis, which sparkled against the white, snowy background.  

This look is inspired by Aquamarine, birthstone for March.  Aquamarine comes from the Latin words, aqua marina, meaning “water of the sea”. Since ice and snow are forms of water, the cold weather was fitting for this gemstone. Not only does aquamarine symbolize courage and fortitude, but it is also represents cleanliness, calmness, truth and letting go.

Here’s what I wore.  It was COLD, but I braved the frigid weather to show off my winter outfit: a hooded, cropped sweater, simple black skirt, and tall black boots.  Everything (except the boots and sweater) were purchased on Ebay.

 

Cropped sweater: Cryoflesh, 20-eye boots: Doc Martens (brand)

 

 

I don’t own anything in aquamarine, except for bindis.  The rest of my eye makeup is highlighted in silver.  The red lipstick brightens my face.

 

 

 

That’s it, lovelies.  I’m still in transition with this blog.  I’m thinking this blog will be more of a supplement to my YouTube channel, so expect the focus to switch to videos.  I’m not much of a writer, but I can definitely show my face.  Stay tuned.

Love & Shimmies,

Goth Fashion for February: Amethyst

Hello, lovelies!  First, let me just start off with the temperature for the day: 69° F (20.6° C).  Wow!  It felt like Spring, so decided to take advantage of the weather and wear my purple, floral headpiece for this month’s birthstone, Amethyst. Luckily for me, I own amethyst jewelry, which I also wore.  Amethyst is my birthstone and thus, my favorite birthstone.

Here’s what I wore.  A simple, straight skirt with a simple, long cardigan.  I think that the burnout-lace shirt looks nice with the amethyst jewelry and purple flowers.  Clothing was purchased on Amazon and Ebay.

 

 

Floral crown: Miss Wild Flowers (Etsy), Amethyst ring: Bethesda Flea Market, Seed bead necklace: World Market, Raw amethyst necklace: Habit Jewelry (Etsy)

 

I went with a full face of makeup: black and purple eyeshadow with purple lipstick.  Black and purple are my favorite colors to wear together.

 

 

Next week will be another birthday for me.  I don’t know what I’ll be doing, but I do know that I’ll be meeting a Facebook friend in person.  There’s nothing like meeting a cool person that you’ve talked to online.  Can’t wait!

Love & Shimmies,

Gothic Fashion for January: Garnet

Hello, fellow darklings!  Today’s look is inspired by January’s birthstone, Garnet. While garnets come in a range of colors, my favorite color (and the most popular)  for garnets is blood red.  What goth doesn’t love blood red?  The color itself is beautiful, but when it’s paired with black, it can give a look a bit of mystery.  “Garnet” is believed to come from the Latin word granate, which means “seed”, like the seeds of a pomegranate.

 

GARNET INFO & SYMBOLISM

TITLE: The Stone of Health

ALTERNATE NAMES: Arizona Ruby, Carbuncle, Cinnamon Stone

COLORS: All except blue, including colorless and multi-colored

MOHS SCALE HARDNESS: 6.5-7.5

CHAKRAS: Root (1) and Heart (4)

ZODIAC SIGN:  Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

SYMBOLIZES: Regeneration, Vitality, and Order

ELEMENT: Earth

 

Here’s what I wore.  Everything is long, flowing, and lacy.  Very comfortable and very feminine.  I purchased all of my clothing on Amazon.

 

 

 

 

Here’s my face.  Again, I went simple with the makeup but I did go a bit heavier on the eyeliner.  Of course, the garnet-colored bindi completes my face:

That’s it for now.  I’ll be making changes to my blog and blog posts this year. For instance, I’ll still create blog posts on birthstones, but I’m taking a break from the birth flowers this year.  The information on birthstones have also been condensed.  If you wish to see more information, you can check out the birthstone posts from 2015 and 2016.  Of course, you can also click the link to Crystals and Jewelry (under the title pic) for more in-depth info.
