A LIL VINTAGE TWIST


I honestly can’t begin to express how much I am living for this photoset! I feel like a lil vintage goth doll and honestly - it’s a vibe. These have to be some of the best photos we’ve ever shot and my heart is so happy it could burst! 

What a lot of people might not know is that my way into the world of alternative fashion was actually through vintage and rockabilly. In fact, the first blog post I ever wrote for Midnight and Lace (now deleted) was about a vintage fair I went to. I’ve had a love for vintage fashion for a long time, particularly the 40s/50s era. When I first discovered people like Dita Von Teese and Betty Page I was so in awe of their style! Pin up quickly became one of my favourite styles of fashion and I love checking out pin up models to see how they dress because they just look so cool, beautiful and confident. Since getting my hair done, I’ve had a couple comments about how I look like I could pull off the vintage pin up look and it really got me thinking. I’ve always loved pin up fashion from a distance because in all honesty... I didn’t feel good enough about myself or my body to feel confident enough to give it a try. But after loving something for so long and being in a much better place with body confidence and being kinder to myself, I decided I wanted to try to add a lil vintage twist to my current goth style. 

I definitely fell down a Collectif hole whilst on their website and picked up a couple of pieces (as well as the one in this post, that I can’t wait to share!). At first putting on this skirt, I was very skeptical and my first thought was about how tight it actually was. I have never worn tight fitting clothes because of my previous battle with my own body. I used to do everything in my power to hide my stomach, butt and thighs. When you’ve thought so negatively about the way your body looks for so long, you will always have that little thought chipping away at your self esteem. However, for the first time (in a think ever!) I felt really good about the way I looked. Actually, I felt amazing! Getting to dress as a vintage goth doll made me feel so cool and confident with my body. I kinda had this realisation that the whole point of the “pin up” fashion is about taking ownership of your body, loving yourself and feeling confident as hell - and I haven’t felt this good in a long time!

This style of fashion is something I can definitely see myself incorporating much more into my personal style. I’ll never loose my love for goth and will dress in black till I die but I feel like as I get a little older this is just my goth style maturing (Brendan Urie style) I’m a classy goth now. I’m going to be blending both of these styles together more and I’m pretty excited to see what happens, as I feel like they work so well together! I’m all for experimenting with style and this is the next step in my style journey.

  1. Your horizontal striped 3/4 sleeve Zara top and black Collectif pencil skirt look fabulous styled together. Your lipstick, nailpolish and hair all look perfect. I like the vintage goth doll look.
