Nope this is not the sound of my coffin opening up after a week of restful Goth UV light (Ultra Velvet), but the sound of my body lately!
I have not done a runner from my little WordPress platform, but I have been plagued with some nefarious health issues the past week – including “Back to Work-itus“, “Wake up at Unholy Hour-itus” and the exhausting “FuckThisShit-itus“. Thankfully, I am recovering slowly but surely with hefty doses of Judas Priest’s Painkiller.
…However, this treatment wouldn’t have been successful without a trip to the Spring 2018 Edition of London Edge , THE alternative lifestyle and fashion trade event of the year!
I attended my first show last year, and it was A BLAST !!! Whilst intended mostly for retailers, London Edge opens its door to online babblers like me who will squeal in delight every 2 steps of the way and remember every single product code for future purchases.
This year, I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging around with fellow blogger Heavy Metal Momma , with whom I had a righteous blast, all the way down to the afterparty (PS: I lost my voice the next day, thanks to screeching to Disturbed and System of A Down!)
I will be taking you through my favourite stalls of this edition in a second post coming this week, as I am still going through all photos.
Instead, here is an outfit post from the day!
I have really digged my purchases from The Gothic Shop , which include the headpiece and shawl/cape you will see below.
The dress is a dress from Boohoo – I really love high/low dresses and you can find them also on Amazon for cheap. I pimped this dress with a belt from Primark – honestly Primark can produce some amazing stuff in the winter season for us ladies of the Dark.
What I do is buy the stuff and store it for future use. I have loooooads of really badass belts from Primark. This was £3!
I am not farting on this picture but I was mid talking and this unfortunate upside down pout came out ! Nevermind, I hope you are looking at the jacket instead 😉
This jacket cost me £39 in Reserved. I LOVE it! Always helpful to get space in the underground. Ain’t nobody trying to squeeze me when I am wearing that teehee.
The focus of this picture is the ring : £0.99 in Primark again. I always check their bling because once in a while something badass shows up.
That cape/shawl is BOMBASTIC ! Oh yeah, and this is a sneak peak of the shenanigans from this weekend (mama wants that crown! more coming up on that!)
Hope you stay tuned because I have a whole lotta gothilicious pictures to share – and I have remembered all the product codes if you fancy badgering your partner for new goodies 😉
Until Next Time!
