It's the first fashion post of 2018 on Midnight and Lace and what better way to start of another year of fashion than with my most goth post to date. I am stoked about all the fashion content I have planned for 2018 and why I will be fully embracing my dark side this year. 

It blows my mind that when I first started this blog, I didn't post any fashion posts and now they've become my most popular and my personal favourite to create. I knew when I began to post fashion content, I wanted to represent my individual style but it was pretty daunting for me at the beginning. I was so nervous when I first started posting fashion content because I didn't look the same way as other fashion bloggers - I will never be seen in pink, I cringe at glitter and my makeup is slightly... extreme. I didn't follow many alternative fashion bloggers and I felt pretty isolated in the fashion blogging world. Now, I have found my place online and an awesome bunch of people who inspire and support my posts and my alternative style, which has given me the confidence to be the true me on my blog. When thinking about my year ahead and where I see Midnight and Lace going, I knew it would involve me representing alternative gothic fashion. It's who I am and has become such a huge part of my blog. I love having a platform that enables me to express my style and I now feel so much more confident in doing that. So, what better way to start 2018 than with a post that fully unleashes all my goth potential!

There is so much I love about the alternative/ gothic fashion. Black is my favourite colour and I find it such a key colour that I can style in pretty much every way! I have always been drawn to patterns and fabrics that are typically associated with the alternative/ gothic fashion - velvet, mesh, tartan, vinyl. These are all fabrics that I am constantly finding myself buying and being attracted to. But, most of all I love how this alternative / gothic style represents a lot of my interests. I take a lot of inspiration from gothic culture, mainly film and music. These are two areas that have always heavily influenced how I dress and to sum it up I pretty much just want to look like a Tim Burton character.

I take great inspiration from influential goth girls and I have recently added a new goth gal to my fave icons. I have had Pale Waves on constantly recently and the lead singer Heather Baron Gracie has become my favourite obsession (yes I made a lyric reference). I love goth girls, it's just... there aren't many of them. Most of our iconic goth girls come from film or TV like Wednesday, Lydia, Lily Munster, Nancy etc. So for me to see a true goth girl fronting a band and showcasing goth fashion currently, is so refreshing! I recently saw Heather wearing a Vinyl Jacket like this and as soon as I saw how she styled it, I knew I needed to add it to my wardrobe and it has quickly become one of my most prized possessions. I love how it completely transforms this outfit and just makes me feel like such a strong and badass goth!

I cannot wait to create some killer fashion content this year and I have a feeling that 2018 will be the year of the alt girls.

Till next time,
