Pretty Little Goth Things!

As you may have gathered, I am a bargain warrior – a bit like a Robin Hood of Goth shopping – except I don’t shoplift; I just rob the rich companies from a full profit margin and buy everything discounted instead *rubs gloved hands in glee*.

Jokes aside, I don’t believe that you have to spend a fortune on branded stuff to get an alternative, unique look … In fact you probably won’t get a unique look if you go via the “mainstream” alt brands : a quick instagram search will show you that a lot of these ‘alt models’ just have Nicki Minaj lacefront wigs on, the Nicki Minaj plastic booty cheeks reverse-installed on the chest area and the sempiternal Duck Face.

Yes, I am petty and I own my pettiness. Alternative & Goth cultures being stereotyped to trashy bimbos doesn’t sit well in my book.

Also, I love Wednesday Addams but I am bloody sick of the 456th version of the black dress with the white collar that gets released every damn year. At least give Uncle Fester’s garb a chance?

Aaaaanyhoo [what a digression eh??] I was researching a new belt to add to my armada when I stumbled upon these badass belts from a website I would have never ever considered for cute alt stuff …  Pretty Little Thing.

Well look at these !

And then this cute harness which could be customised with bling (that is my plan :-))

And how about this heavy metal beauty ?? Of course I bought this glamourous medieval bondage skirt – and I cannot wait to set off metal detectors !

So this is the first of a series of blog posts I am going to do about alternative finds across the internet. I hope you enjoyed ! Stay tuned for the next posts and feel free to share your finds in the comments as well 🙂

  1. Belts are sooooo expensive for what they are. I’ve lost weight recently (through illness – not the recommended way!) and had to buy new belts – firstly no one seems to cater for a 27inch waist on the high street anymore and secondly the cost is just staggering. I did go ‘goth’ last week and bought Jawbreaker’s black cage belt (£13 from Kate’s Clothing) which is a pretty perfect fit (though I don’t believe their blurb where they reckon it fits up to a size 14 – 8 -12 at best). I really like the black chain belt above and picked up a similar one in Topshop which cost £22. £22 for a bloody belt!!! It had better last me the rest of my life!!

    1. I know right??! Back in the day i used to find belts in Primark for £2 – £4 and they did the job, whilst looking good. I really do not understand how retailers get away with pricing above £25 for a simple belt. I suppose I do : there is a market who will jump on the bandwagon. However I prefer to scour and find bargains or if i have to pay more – at least pay for a design that is different and/or involve some proper work like a corset belt or cage belt. A straight line with holes is not worthy of spending £25! 🙂

  2. Alt is sooo “in”, it’s not really alternative anymore, I think. Same with nerds (glasses and so). Seems like the “cool kids” in the end were nothing but jealous 😎
    Looking forward to your next finds!

    1. Absolutely spot on! It is getting ridiculous actually because everybody now wants to look like the ‘Alt Stereotype’… Yes sadly there is now an ‘alt stereotype’. That is why i focus on doing my own looks regardless of specific alt brands. Thanks for your comment !
