Here’s my look that is inspired by Aquamarine, the birthstone for March. Called “the gem of the sea”, aquamarines are used by some for water (and also air-) travel, alleviating the fear of water. They were “used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness, and protection”, and were believed to be the “treasure of mermaids”. The word “aquamarine” comes from the Latin words aqua marinas, meaning “water of the sea”. Aquamarines also symbolize eternal youth, happiness, and clear communication.

Here’s my face, which called for heavy eye makeup:
That’s all until next time. I hope you liked my outfit of the day. Are there staples in your wardrobe that might not be considered goth? Please share in the comments.
