(carin wester dress, carven collar, hot topic necklace, miu miu shoes)
I've been revisiting some classic "goth" music lately. Albums like Disintegration by The Cure, Denali's self-titled debut record, and Mazzy Star's She Hangs Brightly. After being on a po-mo noise/avant-Gregorian chant revivalist bender (AKA, listening to a lot of No Not Fun releases...), the heartwarming songs that I credit as my introduction to music feel so appropriate right now. It also inspired this spooky throwback getup, to the quintessential days of "goth" as I imagine them to be. A giant pleated dress and giant pleated collar gives me a very homey/homely feeling that listening to The Cure also imbues within me.
But do not be fooled by the front of this asexual tent dress! It comes with a party in the back!
