Goth Summer Clothes

Posted by Kat C on Saturday, May 7, 2016, In : Fashion 
I have quite mixed feelings when it comes to the summer.  I rationally know that the sunlight is really good for my mood and depression but I find it really hard to find things to wear and feel comfortable.  Part of this is that I'm not particularly comfortable in my skin and would like to drop a couple of dress sizes.  I'm kind of okay with this during the winter months as I can be covered but as the weather warms up I feel really uncomfortable. 

I decided to have a look on polyvore and see ...

Inspiration and Ideas

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, November 11, 2015, In : Fashion 
I've been working on some new items for my shop and getting some inspiration from polyvore.  I've made myself a board of things that I like and it's a bit of a mix of different things, some jewellery, clothes, items for the home and pictures.  I don't think I'll ever tire of stripes and cute animals but I've recently been playing around with skulls and something more stylised like sugar skulls.  I like the idea of stitching some embroidered sugar skulls and making them a feature of something ...

I really want to make some new items for my shops but I'm having a tough job getting inspired.  I thought I'd have a play on polyvore and see what cool stuff I can find.  That usually helps.  Here's what I found:

I really want to make some non jewellery items and make some more accessories, maybe some hair accessories and items like hats, scarves and arm warmers. I also love the laced cuff and would like to make a laced mug cosy.  I've got some cool pleather with skulls on that would be cool. ...

CorpGoth Status Report: Hair

Posted by Kat C on Monday, May 18, 2015, In : Fashion 
I've been a bit lacking in inspiration with regards to blog posting recently so I've been making the most of the themed post homeworks set by my fellow bloggers.  Todays blog post idea comes via CorpGoth and the theme is how you style your hair for work days. 

Being self employed gives me a bit more freedom around how I look, what I wear and how I do my hair. If I'm going out to see a client or attending a meeting then I tend to wear my hair up in either a ponytail or a bun.  That way it does...

Busy, Busy, Busy

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, June 29, 2014, In : Fashion 
I've been a bit swallowed up with the whole job of starting a business so haven't had much time to devote to my own blog.  I want to change this as I know keeping up my hobbies and having a bit of fun will keep me sane in the long run.  So I've been doing lots of talking to people about what I'm doing now and delivering flyers to places where I might potentially get clients or referrals from.  It's been tiring so I thought I'd imagine myself a virtual holiday :)

I took myself on a virtual camp...

Red & Black Week: Day 5

Posted by Kat C on Thursday, June 5, 2014, In : Fashion 
It's coming up to that most dreaded time of year, summer.  Don't get me wrong, there are bits of summer I really like.  I love the sunshine, long days, flowers and butterflies.  Unfortunately it also means humid days, hot sticky nights where you can't sleep, sunburn or having to slather yourself in factor 50 and then feeling greasy and dirty all day, wasps, exposing flesh, hay fever, asthma and never feeling clean.

I thought this year I'd try and develop a bit more of a positive attitude as, k...

Red & Black Week: Day 2

Posted by Kat C on Monday, June 2, 2014, In : Fashion 
It's been a bit of busy day and most of it's been sat at my laptop so today's post is going to be a short one.  I've been visiting one of my favourite sites for window shopping, Polyvore, and created this collection of red and black items that caught my eye.  I'd forgotten how much I like red and black together so it was good to get lots of ideas and inspiration. 

I especially love the long skirt and lantern.  Will have to investigate them a bit more closely :)

Red & Black Week: Day 1

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, June 1, 2014, In : Fashion 
I've been really enjoying doing some themed blog posts so I thought I'd join in with Sophisticate Noir and her 4th annual Red and Black week.  I'm going to challenge myself and do a themed blog post every day of the 6 days.

On Sundays I normally do my nails so thought I'd do something red and black for a change.  I don't normally paint them red as I worry that it draws attention to the fact I pick my fingers.  I normally go for pinks, blues, blacks and purples, but today, especially for Red & ...

Window Shopping

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, December 18, 2013, In : Fashion 
As I was feeling pretty rough I've been cheering myself up with a bit of window shopping via polyvore :)  Here's a little collection of accessories that I liked.  I'd especially love those boots :)  

Cool accessories
