...Yeah, that happened just now. So, instead of the full-outfit post that I had planned, I'll post the details and leave the rest to your imagination.
I'm really into Catholic vibes lately. Probably because I grew up Catholic, and a result, I still harbor a "healthy" reserve of Catholic guilt. Orange eyeshadow, greasy hair with finally-growing-out bangs, the perfect priest-inspired button down from American Apparel (actually, I got used from a hipster resale shop for $6, but that's just being nitpicky). That collar was just begging for my cannibalized F21 cross necklace. In the words of my dear friend Morgan, "I love it when being goth becomes trendy every few years or so, because I can stock up on black clothes and cross jewelry from Forever 21." Amen, sister.
My new Chloe' mall goth boots. Everyone refers to them as the Chloe' docs, but I totally get high school-era mall goth vibes from them. They remind me of those pleather Demonia boots from Hot Topic that were made with foam platforms and rubber spikes jutting out the sides - surely you remember! And if you're like me, you probably owned a pair. These boots will probably be worn with nostalgic goth references in mind. To look forward, you need to first look back.
