Outfit Post – Gothic Princess.

When it comes to clothing and outfits, I am a sucker for colour. Whether it be vibrant red or yellow, or softer shades of blue or pink, colour is something I have always embraced. If truth be told, as much as black is classic, elegant and always described as flattering, I do find it a little bit on the safe and boring side.

But last week I had two events in the same night and I decided that the look I wanted to go for was a Gothic Princess look. I wanted something pretty and floaty, a little bit fairy tale, but I was thinking more Malificent than Cinderella (because, let’s face it, good girls go to heaven, but bad girls go everywhere….!). Black was the natural choice for the opening of a restaurant in an Old Birmingham Cinema that also had a nightclub attached to it, but I wanted to do Princess – Gothic Princess.

The top is one of this season’s ‘cold shoulder’ design from Simply Be. This top is lovely, it has a sweetheart bodice design and ruffled sleeve effect. Over the top of the bodice is a over layer that is almost a knitted design with perforations and patterns in the black lining. This could easily be worn with skinny jeans and heels for a completely different look.

I teamed the top with a tulle net skirt from New Look. Regular readers to the blog know I have a Carrie Bradshaw obsession, and this skirt reminds me of a dress that Sarah Jessica Parker wore a few years ago.  I think this skirt is so easy to wear – elasticated waist, midi length and both lightweight and yet substantial.

I teamed the outfit with a Biba Bag from House of Fraser.

I quite enjoyed wearing my gothic princess look, but I don’t think it will persuade me to wear more black. I enjoy bright and cheery colours a little too much!
