Silver Pinstriped Goth Outfit

Goth outfit by Christine of Hexotica

I still whip out a fully goth outfit now and then between my more colorful alternative outfits, and this one is one of my favorites of late.

It’s all thrifted, except for the Dangerfield tights, shoes, and accessories.

I had bought the long, billowy silver top with the cute sleeves a long time ago, but found it a little too large and unflattering to wear anywhere except to work.

Recently, I found this amazing little pinstripe and black lace vest ย and it all came together beautifully with a pinstripe skirt.

Now it’s an outfit I wear shopping or out to dinner, though it’s too goth for work.

Christine of HexoticaAnd I dyed my hair red! It has been over a year since I went blond so it was time for a change, and going to red then gradually back to black has been my long-term plan as I let my hair grow back out.

Going blond for the first time was fun and I enjoyed eventually learning how to bleach and tone it myself, with a few temporary crazy colors thrown in now and then, but regular bleaching is a lot of work and certainly takes its tole.

This red is L’oreal’s ‘Cherry Red’ from the semi-permanent Castings range. I had first gone a light, orangey red but wasn’t as thrilled with that result as I am with this color.

In other news, I am happy again. It has been a long time since I felt relatively content from the time I wake up in the morning till when I go to bed, but I have done a lot of healing work on myself this year and have sorted a lot out in my head and with my life.

I have always been a generally positive-minded person, but the last two years were a massive disappointment on many levels, though there is still a lot I am extremely grateful for and that I am using now to get to where I want to be.

Last week I had a day where I felt so good about all the aspects of my life that I realized feeling happy had become a daily occurance, and I literally broke out in a song and dance that seem to last all day! ย I sang James Brown’s ‘I Feel Good’ all over the house, and got a lot done that day while listening to this James Brown mix on YouTube.

There is nothing like getting your life mojo back. I literally felt like my body was humming with energy!

I hope to make the time to share some of my physical and mental healing exercises I did over the last few months here on my blog, because I would love to help other women climb out of ruts like the kind I feel I have freed myself from.ย Christine_of_Hexotica
