This Months Outfits

This month has been odd, as it's a transitional season, which I both love and hate, especially with the UK.  Often, I can look forward several seasons in the course of a few hours. One of the things I look forward to is being able to wear boots again, I love my boots.  Another thing I adore is being able to air  the cob webs  from wardrobe  and finally don  my   my long skirts again ( I apologise for some of the crappy photos.).

As I state previously, I source most of my wardrobe from a charity shop, occasionally high street shops I mainly  shop at  TK Maxx or Primark. Sometimes eBay, I've stopped shopping there as often the postage costs more than the item. Sometimes, I have purchased cheap top that have been reasonable quality from the Chinese sellers. Depending on my mood I sew my clothing. I often hate internet shopping, since I can't feel or try items on.  My hometown has no alternative shop anymore, it's a shame but that a sign of times. Also, I feel dissuaded from buying alternative clothing as often the items are poor quality for the price of them. My personal style tends to be quite sombre, and I tend to wear things that look quite similar.  

I love  this top, it was a charity shop find for a pound. My favourite part is the velvet flock rose motif. I  like the leggings, I wish they were thicker as, I didn't realise how much they highlighted my cellulite until it was too late.  I will only  be wearing them with my tunics  or  dresses in future. I wore with  nu goth boots style boots. I'm trying to wear heels retrain myself to wear heels, again.



This was my bowling alley outfit, I wore wearing a tunic top from Boyes yonkers ago, wet look leggings Primark, cardigan thrift find and favourite PVC boots from Primark. 






I wore this few weeks ago for my first sewing class. I found the blouse in a charity shop and love the ruffled detail, I'm still debating whether it's too tight I wore with one of my long skirts I made. I think I need to reconsider how I wear this blouse in future as I think  looks unflattering in reflexion.




This outfit, I wore a couple of  weeks ago to my first blogger event. The jumper is covered with black gemstones is thrift find, and the skirt  looks like embossed leatherette but it's more of a heavy lycra.




I was wearing a fluffy jumper and a kind of bouncy skirt with my DM boots. 




This my favourite outfit from the month, I love the top it looked quite flattering for my body shape. The skirt one of my favourite lolita's style skirt for a couple of pounds. I also like the various layer of trim and ribbon, it's so easy to slip on. I love these boots,they are  versatile to wear for all weathers and comfy. I purchase from Asda (owned by Walmart) for £40 and made from level, still going after four years of  wear.

    1. Thanks guy, that's really sweet. I most admit the colour is not my natuel colour its the rements of my red hair dye. I've since giving it a trim and reducing the amount times I wash seems brought back to life.

  2. Wonderful outfits ❤ My favorite one is also the last one!!! You're so right, it's so good to wear boots again! I have problems with summer shoes every year...

    1. Thanks, that really kind of you to say so. I love boots and have always worn boots since a teenager. I tend find them more secure and comfortable. I find it really difficult to wear flat shoes.

  3. Wow you find such cheap secondhand clothes! Most of our local secondhand shops keep getting pricier!

    1. I'm really lucky as there are some great second hand shops near me. Also, I live a cheap part of the UK, so I think some of the prices reflect the area. Also, a lot of the charity shop near me have became discount outlets as way of getting rid more clothing. Also, I think a lot of the management are understand the local demographic in terms for pricing.

      I've been to some charity shops where they were extortionate for and the donations were in appalling quality.

      Sorry didn't mean to ramble on. I wanted to explain about my local charity shops.

  6. All of these outfits are very nice, but if I'd have to pick a favorite, it would be your bowling outfit; I love wearing long, flowy or layered cardigans with boots^^

  8. I love my boots so I'm with you - it's great to be boot season again. For me though, I love autumn because I can wear coats again. Picked up a super black mac in a charity shop for £3.50 and have rolled out my old favourite Monsoon green velvet coat that is falling apart but is so lovely I want to clone it 5 times over.

    I'm off to Whitby next week and having a coat dilemma - velvet frock coat (like wearing insulation but really pretty), mermaid Edward Scissorhands coat (cute but a tad too tight) or 70's black leather trench coat (second hand, a bit matrix/ 90s goth but not that warm). I have been told very firmly I can't take them all, besides we're in the fourth floor of a very tall building with no lift so I have to carry everything up mountains of stairs...

    I really like the blouse you're not sure of, it's very pretty. Also loving the dark lipstick on the outdoor picture, I'm having a nightmare with me plum this season!

  9. I like my boots, especially with the damp weather that happens.Your mac sounds like a good find. My favourite is a my charcoal duffel coat with my huge hood, it reminds me of Jo from Little Women.


    I understand your problem, I never know what to pack when I go away. I try to take the most versatile and adoptable items and the weather always the biggest factor. I like the sound of your frock coat.


    Thanks. The dark plum is a home mixture of black gel liner and matt cherry by Gosh. I'm intending to do another makeup post. Over the next couple of week, I'm may not be posting anything as I need to finish the house off and paint the kitchen.

  10. I also buy most clothing at charity shops/ second hand. I agree that the brands with goth clothings often are way too expensive because of the bad quality.
    I like your style :)
