2019 Trend Predictions (and trends I'd like to see)

What sort of dark fashion trends will we see in 2019? 

The nicer term for mall goth. I think we are going to be seeing more embellished clothing and accessories, so listen for sounds of chains rattling, straps jostling, zippers zipping, and belts tightening. Expect to see people getting caught on chairs and doors and each other, plus more lists of "problems only goths have."

2018 Trend Recap

I'm back! Those of you who follow me on Instagram @5thAvenueGoth know that I've been recently laid off from my job. Fun fact is that this blog started while I was looking for work, and since I've got some time on my hands now, I'll return to blogging. Instagram isn't really good for the commentary I like to do, and I'm still toying with the idea of doing YouTube--that's where I go for fashion commentary myself, so it makes sense that the audience who is interested in dark fashion commentary would be there as well. 

It's that time of year again, when I recap the 2018 dark fashion trends. Still enjoying wearing cold-shoulder tops? See where they started in the 2017 recap. Are you gluing things to your forehead? Check out the 2016 Recap

Personal style: what's in and out for summer 2018

The seasons have changed and so it's time to pack away what won't be worn (my "outs") and hang up what will be (my "ins").

IN: Black horn jewelry. I've been wearing gold and silver and bone for the past year, and I've missed all my black stuff!

Why I don't wear eyeliner

There is one thing you won't see on this site. And that's eyeliner designs. You will never see this on my eyes:

Another way of wearing off-the-shoulder tops

Thanks for all your kind words on my previous post! As cheesy as it sounds, I'm glad someone out there enjoys something I write :) Now maybe someone will like my fiction as well one day. I'm not shutting down the blog or going on hiatus, I just probably won't update weekly or will be more erratic. 

Now back to our regularly scheduled post!

Restyle Haul + Review

I'm taking time off from playing Poland's gaming pride and joy and one of the greatest video games ever made, The Witcher 3, to review one of Poland's goth brands.

So, I always liked the style of this brand, but they have the least search-engine-optimized name ever. People would post that they are wearing Restyle, and I'd search "Restyle" or "Restyle clothing" or "Restyle goth brand" and would get all these random pages and give up. Thanks to Lurid Fashion for finally posting a direct link:

The above is what I ordered. A necklace, ankle bracelets, leggings, and a dress. This is my first order with them.
