It's been a while, huh?
I'm sorry I haven't been around, but I was very busy with my exams; also, major changes happened in my life and they're very likely to affect my future: my mind was elsewhere, I had to put fashion aside for a while.
This was my New Year's Eve outfit, for the record XD I know it's a wee bit late to show it to you, but I really liked it and I wanted to share it ''XD
[I'm the one on the left]
There is something else that's going to be put aside for a while.
Yes, this is that talk :D the one where the blogger says she's going to take her distances from her usual style, probably for a while, or maybe forever, she doesn't know, but right know she doesn't feel the need to goth up and she would like to try on some mainstream clothes and see if she likes them.
It's not like this is the first time I get a little tired of corsets and fishnet hold-ups; it's happened in the past, and eventually goth started growing on me again; the difference is that then, even when I quitted goth for a while, I always kept dressing in total black. Now I want some colour in my life, and most of all, I want to be able to learn how to match colours again :D!
It's always been easy to combine clothes for me, since they were all black and they all belonged to the same style: now I want to find out how it is to match colourful, mainstream items together, and what my style might be if I wasn't an alternative.
According to the stuff I've bought by now, tuns out I'm quite the romantic.
Recently I even bought nerdy glasses like hers XD
Ok, so, you got it: a lot of a-line skirts and dresses, a lot of red/white/blue, or pastels sometimes, flats. It's not easy to pull out such outfits in the winter, but I guess I'm going to have to learn how to do this :D
I guess I had always thought I couldn't have looked good in mainstream clothes, the ones the other girls wore: because the Other Girls were pretty, and they looked good in pretty clothes. I thought I didn't and would never have.
Now I've kind of stopped being so insecure about my looks, and I want to try all the things I haven't allowed myself to wear during all of these years. I have understood what kind of clothes look good with my body shape, I've learnt how to do a proper make-up, and I've sort of made peace with my natural hair colour: I want to taste what it's like to be what I thought I was too ugly to be.
In some way, goth has been my comfort zone. It's weird to say that, considering it has brought me so many troubles and unwanted comments, but that's one of the things it has been to me.
Mainly it was just the style I like, by the way. I've always claimed that it had more to do with my tastes in clothing than with anything else, and it's still absolutely true. But there was something else.
With alternative styles, the outfit was all that mattered, so I didn't care if I didn't look good in a miniskirt and knee-high boots: the only important things were the clothes. I was trying to be a goth, not to be pretty.
Now I want to be what I found out I deem pretty. Which seems to be: crochet collars, pastel sweaters, a-line skirts, polka dots, bows and oxfords or mary janes. Something like this.
Do you like my new idea of style? It's kind of trendy, I know, but it's really starting to grow on me :) I hope you'll keep following my blog even though there isn't't always going to be alternative stuff!
Have a nice weekend ;*!
