As you may have gathered, I am a bargain warrior – a bit like a Robin Hood of Goth shopping – except I don’t shoplift; I just rob the rich companies from a full profit margin and buy everything discounted instead *rubs gloved hands in glee*.
Jokes aside, I don’t believe that you have to spend a fortune on branded stuff to get an alternative, unique look … In fact you probably won’t get a unique look if you go via the “mainstream” alt brands : a quick instagram search will show you that a lot of these ‘alt models’ just have Nicki Minaj lacefront wigs on, the Nicki Minaj plastic booty cheeks reverse-installed on the chest area and the sempiternal Duck Face.
Yes, I am petty and I own my pettiness. Alternative & Goth cultures being stereotyped to trashy bimbos doesn’t sit well in my book.
Also, I love Wednesday Addams but I am bloody sick of the 456th version of the black dress with the white collar that gets released every damn year. At least give Uncle Fester’s garb a chance?
Aaaaanyhoo [what a digression eh??] I was researching a new belt to add to my armada when I stumbled upon these badass belts from a website I would have never ever considered for cute alt stuff … Pretty Little Thing.
Well look at these !
And then this cute harness which could be customised with bling (that is my plan :-))
And how about this heavy metal beauty ?? Of course I bought this glamourous medieval bondage skirt – and I cannot wait to set off metal detectors !
So this is the first of a series of blog posts I am going to do about alternative finds across the internet. I hope you enjoyed ! Stay tuned for the next posts and feel free to share your finds in the comments as well 🙂
