What I Wear For Work | Nu Goth Outfits

NuGoth Work Outfits


 NuGoth allows me to show my dark side even at work. And lets be honest i'm pretty lazy and NuGoth helps with that. As much as i love the big Victorian style dresses they just aren't suitable for sitting in the office all day. And i have to adhere to some dress code. I'm pretty lucky in my office that i can have my hair dyed any colour (Green hair wooh) and pretty much wear what i want within reason. NuGoth to me is taking "Gothic" symbols and items such as the skull and adding it to modern tailoring. Hence why i love killstar so much, and sometimes looks "witchy"

The above outfit i can wear with so many different tops and shoes and appear to be a different outfit, or i'd switch the skirt out for a maxi skirt.  I love how the skulls match nicely with the moons. I added my paint splatter dr martens to keep within the black and white theme.

  

 This outfit is properly one of my more "grown up" looking outfits. Simple black dress with mesh over it, adding some printed tights so the outfit doesn't appear to flat. With these type of outfits it's easy to accessorise in many different ways. Since it was still pretty chilly i added the scarf for a bit of texture and comes in handy during the windy periods of the day.

 

This is a outfit i use many times at work. I throw on a crop top over a plain strappy black dress. It's easy to put on in the morning and is comfy for the whole day. Sometimes i even put on a standard t-shirt and tie it at the side so it gives the illusion that it's a crop top. Otherwise with this dress i'd just look like i was wearing a lot of fabric. 

The top outfit is probably my favourite, i  wore the skirt a lot when i first bought it and i love the cardigan! How do you feel about NuGoth?

Folter RIP Dress (Coffin Dress) | Review

 Coffin Dress, Coffin Print,
Folter Coffin Print Dress

I bought this dress when it was on sale as i fell in love with it, and i wanted more items of clothing with the little collar on. I love the all over coffin print, i had for some time been wanting a t-shirt with some kind of coffin print and when i saw this i waited for months until it finally went on sale.

Review
  • Quality is good and the dress is well made
  • Cute collar
  • All over coffin print
  • Has pockets
  • Not long enough to be a dress
Coffin Dress, Coffin Print,

The only thing really wrong with this dress is the fact that it's way to short to be even called a dress. As you can see from the picture it only just sits at my bum. Now this is fine if you're wearing it with leggings or even shorts under. But since it was advertised as a dress i expected it to be longer. For reference i'm only 5ft3". So i'm not exactly tall, if anything i'm short. I did buy it in a extra small but that shouldn't effect the length much, i don't know if i had have bought a bigger size if it would have been longer. The extra small fits almost perfectly, there is a little room in it but it's not baggy.


 I would say this is more like a long t-shirt than a dress it's self. The fabric is of good quality and won't fall apart easily since it's made of stretchy knit fabric as Folter's website says.

Spooky Box Club - The Enchanted Forest

 I figured i'd treat myself to a house warming present mostly because i wanted the dream catcher for my living room wall and the necklace.


What's inside

1) Dreamcatcher
2) Berry Tea
3) Skull infuser
4) Witchy women patch
5) Woodland scarf
6) Spell candles
7) Skull and twig earrings
8) Fluorite crystal necklace
9) Lollypop

The berry tea tastes amazing and with the skill infuser my teas never looked as spooky and cute before.   The scarf has an amazing print on it which i forgot to take a picture off but as soon as the weather warms up i'll be wearing it in outfit posts since it's a thin scarf.
The earrings are adorable and cute. The necklace i've been wearing a lot since i got the box, it's a nice green colour and stands out against my black clothing. 

This is my 3rd spooky box, i've had the bat one and the vampire box which i will review next. I'm not subscribed to them monthly as i like to choose which boxes i want, so you can buy one of purchases of the boxes or the items inside. The quality of the items is pretty good and i've found no fault with anything yet, everything is well made.

Sphynx Cat & Stripes | Outfit

I threw this outfit together on a day i wasn't feeling the happiest. Turns out wearing this cheered me up a little as i ended up loving it and no doubt will wear this top with these socks again as i love how the big print somehow managed to work effortlessly with the stripes. It could be because i have stripes all through the outfit.  Also i gave in and bought fake uggs because my feet were cold. I still hate the shoe though.

Style Inspo


I've been wanting to wear my long skirt for a while now but was unsure how to go about it. I like the idea of flowy cardigan with a skirt but thought it might look like an over kill of fabric. I say that yet i have a dress i love that is basically a lot of fabric and love how it flows.



The idea of wearing a kimono with a long skirt is one i like and will try in the spring/summer. I have two an extra long one and a short one. Same with the skirts and i think a long kimono with the just above ankle length skirt will look great. I've got many outfit ideas running though my head but need warmer weather to do so.

Rib Cage and Lace | Outfit


Wore this outfit one day i went shopping. Pairing these lace tights which are actually thick cotton ones with knee high socks actually kept me very warm on a cold winter day.

Now the weather is walking up slightly i plan to remake this outfit in the summer with a kimono and some sheer tights.

Everything apart from the shorts and necklace are actually from Primark.

The Winter Tag


Winter Tag
I know it's late into winter and people normally do this as winter starts but i've only just found the tag and as i'm writing this post it's freezing! I removed the questions about christmas.

What are your favourite things about Winter?
I guess it would be the amazing flavoured hot chocolates that places like costa bring out. I love their white hot chocolate it's the best tasting one i've come across. 

What is your favourite Winter outfit?
My go to outfit for winter is knee high socks over tights, baggy top of some kind, a coat and a scarf. It's my uniform for the winter as i'm always cold.


What is your favourite Winter food?
Stew of some kind. 

Favourite Winter drink?

I can't say tea as i drink that all year around so it's hot chocolate of course.


What is your dream way to spend a Winter’s day?
Staying indoors watching a movie under a blanket with hot chocolate or reading a good book.

How do you like to do your make-up in the Winter?
My make up does chance for the seasons it's always just concealer and eyeliner, that is all.

What are the first three things that remind you of Winter?
 COLD! Dark and spicy scents.

What is your favourite Winter song?
I don't have one.

What is your favourite Winter memory?
From around 2012 when we had a lot of snow and i was playing in it with Max the Belgium Shepard that has gone to heaven. He loved the snow and would shove his nose in it and flick it around. Throw a snowball and he'd try catch it.

What is your favourite Winter scent? 
Cinnamon.

Home Wants | [Moving Day]

Home Wants

These are just a few things i want for my new place.
I've got an idea in my head of how i want the place to be.
White furniture thoughout the place with black deco/details.
Such as for the coffee table i've bought a black try to hold my candles and cauldron on as deco as well as my himalayan salt lamp tea light. Skulls everywhere!

I want a low down bookshelf near the sofa that i plan to make with shelves. That might not work and my idea will go out the window and i'll use a proper bookshelf.

There will be candles and incense everywhere as i love to unwind with some kind of scent filling the air. Also incense gets rid of any food smells from dinner which is great.

In the bedroom i need to make some kind of vanity area as the bathroom doesn't have much light. This will be on top of some draws until i know if there is enough space for a small table.

Safe to say i have a lot of ideas and as this posts it will be moving day. I might do some more posts on home deco once i'm all in and everything is in place.
