late bar

(thrifted shearling jacket, pleasure principle dress from bonnie & clyde's, thrifted cheap monday leather shorts, zana bayne belt, forever21 and marc jacobs bracelets, thrifted steve madden pumps. click for hi-res.)

Wore this to Late Bar, where some friends of mine were DJing for a new goth music night. I really like the premise of their event - a goth night for people who like Cocteau Twins and Zola Jesus...as opposed to, uh, Combichrist. The goth scene in Chicago is primarily composed of nu-metal rivet heads who wear tacky Demonia boots and stomp to VNV Nation at Nocturna, so it's nice to see my friends putting together an event for those of us whose definition of goth is a bit more refined.

 I'm pretty sure this is a men's Pleasure Principle shirt...but no mind, it fits me like a dress! It's one of my great scores from the epic Bonnie & Clyde's warehouse sale a few months ago. I'm wearing leather shorts underneath to stay decent, and found this shearling jacket at a thrift store. Supposedly shearling jackets will be big this fall, so I decided to get started on the trend a bit early. It's perfect for those chilly spring Chicago nights.

I love this. It almost has a star-wars feel to it, like it wouldn't seem out of place for you to have a blaster on your hip and be running all over alien planets, fighting evil-doers.
