Skeleton Closet: Corp Goth Look

The weather is cooling off, and darklings alike are able to bust out and wear the truly staple pieces we've all come to feel are crucial parts of our gothic look...
On this beautiful and cool day, I shall introduce a new part of my gothic fashion files: The Skeleton Closet. Where I get to display my clothing without the bothers of hot weather in mind.


A couple of days ago (a little late, I know, but luckily I had taken the photos with this post in mind), my hubby and I were asked by a friend of his to volunteer to drink for the new police to put their intuitions as well as knowledge to the test. Each of us had to drink to the legal limit and then lie about how much we had. It only took me one and a half drinks to reach that limit; size and height, haha! Good thing I'm not much of a drinker even on a social level, as I'm not wholly social either heh.


I decided I wouldn't go all out on the goth because I would be surrounded by conservative townsfolk and police. My look consisted of all thrift and store bought articles. The sandals really don't go, but I needed something stable to walk with; the choice of foot wear really bugs me, but I had no choice in this regard... otherwise I would've worn my new shoes or similar. This look will easily translate in the office I feel-- I just needed to add stockings and some flats to complete the corp goth look.

  1. Gorgeous top, don't worry about the footwear it didn't detract from the rest of the outfit! Dying to know if you managed to convince them you hadn't drunk that much? New follower :)

    1. Good to have you!
      Thanks; I'm hoping to revamp them in the future-- I have many plans to goth them up.

      We weren't actually allowed to know, but they gave us a clue as to how convincing we were-- if we were asked to do more tests beyond eye reaction time, then they weren't convinced we were sober. In the test I wasn't asked by anyone to do more than the first test, so I guess I am one of those drunks that is convincingly sober lol

  2. Love the top and waistcoat, gives me hope for if I ever have to tone down my style for the corp enviroment. although I'm really into long skirts, so they will have to put up with that.

    Yes, I'd like to know if you convinced them too. You must be around the same size as me. I can get drunk on one drink. But i get red face and nausea, so I avoid it :P

    1. I love long skirts as well-- it still isn't cool enough to wear them so I haven't broken them out just yet lol.

      I felt I did convince them, because none of the new police ever tested me again after the first time... the only thing I couldn't convince them of was my age-- everyone thought I was 13! Hehe
      I get horrible vertigo as well, so I try not to overdo it either when I do drink.

  3. I feel that way very often in regards to footwear. I'm constantly going places where heels just won't do. :(

    1. Yeah, I really wish I had the tools at my disposal to turn blah comfy footwear to something better suited to my tastes-- maybe I should go to town on these with acrylic paint and a stud gun lol
