can i be a mongoose dog

(vintage dress, ann demeulemeester boots, necklace gift from meadham kirchhoff)

I may perpetually look morose in my blog photos, but I promise I'm actually a very happy lady! Inside, that's where it counts right? And I'm still stuck in that notion that not smiling means that I am Thoughtful and Pensive and Thinking Meaningful Thoughts. Really though, if you cracked open my brain, you'd find paisley-covered cupcakes waiting inside. My mind operates like Gir sometimes all the time. So while I wish I could be one of those intense types, the truth is, I turn into a puddle of goo whenever I see a cute puppy.

Anyway, I got this vintage dress recently and it makes me daydream about goth being around in the 70s. It's kind of a misfortunate that goth really came about during the 80s, which was probably one of the WORST decades for fashion. Could you imagine the kinds of vintage goth dresses that could have been made in the 60s and 70s?!

SO HAPPIE ^___^

60's 70's goth? That would be absolutely incredible. Just imagine how cool that would be.
And you dress-necklace-glasses-boots combination is essentially the coolest outfit ever. Ever.

i'm glad it's all happy stuff inside and not all doom and gloom. not that i really think you're gloomy but it's easy to see why someone would think that!

oh yes! i used to be in love with the idea of 60's goth with a flowy black dress and veil but a string of white daisies so fresh and romantic!

It's exactly what i'm dreaming of: a kind of an hippy-goth style. Thank you to exist lol. I never saw a blogger- or even a real person that has nearly to mine musical tastes (i'm a fan of shoe gaze, cocteau twins, a place to bury etc.). Moreover, your blog is awesome, i visit it for one year now and your style is always improving. It's becoming my favorite blog. Thanks to be so inspiring!
