It´s been raining for days, gone are the days when I was thinking of going to do camping in the middle of Yorkshire....I´m not going in this weather, If I wanted to get soaked, I can perfectly thow myself to the river Mersey. It would be cheaper....
This weather really takes you down, to the depth of boredom and "ennui" :)
However, for all those goth enthusiasts, we are all spoilt of choices for our wardrobe! I don´t know where to start....satins, laces, pvc accesories, black make-up or even a very disturbing dark plum (perfect alternative to black) and black, black, black! For all those who love to dress in a more aggresive, industrial or even old-fashioned punk way!, I´ve seen "wet" black leggins everywhere! (What the hell is that, you must be wondering?) Well, I mean those leggins that look like leather. They are gorgeous with an oversize jumper but only suitable for skinny legs, unfortunately.....:(

By typing "gothic chic" on google, I came across this article on the Daily Telegraph´s website. It´s quite old (2005) but that is irrelevant as we all know trends come and go but needs will always be there. It´s interesting as a reference, if you are looking for idea to update your black wardrobe for work or any other daily situations..... Enjoy.
"Looking scary, looking good"
Very occasionally, a trend emerges that seeps through all areas of culture, from film and music to interiors and beauty. One such trend this season is the glamorous, new image of gothic style.
Marc Jacobs kicked off the new mood with a catwalk show packed with gothic references, from the Edward Scissorhands soundtrack to the long black skirts, velvet-trimmed dresses and dark Edwardian silhouettes.
Last week, Tim Burton, the king of the modern gothic movie, released his latest macabre romance, The Corpse Bride, while black interiors - including matt black walls and glossy black accessories - are the most interesting new home trend. Slick black nail polish is currently considered to be über-chic, and Marilyn Manson, the scary-faced goth rocker, was in the front row at the Paris fashion shows last month.
Sumptuous dark velvet is a grown-up way to approach the gothic look. (...)
All those dark colours need to be broken up with softer layers and lighter colours. A delicate lace blouse contrasts well with black velvet or wool.
Simple Victorian pendants look great with Edwardian-style clothes, but jet - especially faceted jet - is probably the most dramatic jewellery to wear with a gothic look. Erickson Beamon's Sleepy Hollow collection includes chandelier earrings with jet and hermatite (from £150; 020 7259 0202) and jet lariat-style necklaces (from £350).
Marc Jacobs showed much of his collection with black socks and flat black patent shoes. However, lace-up boots with heels are more flattering.

However, it's rare when you have the chance to see a vintage car in person...
This gorgeous beauty was just in front of the new arena in Liverpool. By its appearance, I assume is from the 1920s, if you look closer, it has a piece you have to turn over in order to start the engine!
It was available to rent for special occassions, such weddings but the brochure didn't say the price. Shame...

Do you remember my strap-less top?
You can have a look at this slide-show
Well, this one is super femenine and it reminds me of those retro lingerie bustiers...
It has lace panels and two chiffon straps that come out from the lowest point of the centre, they really accentuate the shoulders and also, emphasize the bust. Beautiful....
Unlike the cobweb top, this top is not completely finished yet...
Hope you like it!
