Like a true narcissist, I am going to spread my Prague experience across two posts; one all about my gothtastic aesthetic, the other about the majestic city’s aesthetic. Don’t act surprised – this is how we operate in these streets!
When I travel, I like be as comfortable as Robert Smith in a red lipstick factory. No ifs, no buts; posing for the gram is one thing, it is another to be wearing clothes actually suitable for day to day human activities. Not being shady [but potentially throwing some obscurity] but quite a few of the outfits I see online do not tend themselves to walking around all day, or catering for a big fat lunch and then some foreign dessert (by the way calories absorbed abroad will soon not count, as they will be rejected at the UK’s border patrol – yay Brexit for Weight Loss!).
Sure, I’d love to prance about in sexy platforms, but this probably would only last until I disgracefully booty-plant on the pavement and customise my tights with genuine angry rips.
I love walking, and Prague is the type of city that is to be discovered by foot. This is where my Demonia creepers come to play. These are the Demonia V-Creeper-537; I got them for £41 on Amazon a couple of years back, and they are super comfy! So I packed them with me for the trip. I highly recommend them as they work well with dresses as well as trousers. Win-win!
The dress is Killstar (bought on sale) and the double belt was bought on boohoo. I still feel very uncomfortable with my hormonal weight gain, and adding a belt at the waist really helps shape the flab.
Second outfit was casual chic as well, with the trusted Demonia showing again their versatility by accompanying a frilly tulle skirt I purchased on Amazon in 2018. That skirt is awesome and has an elasticated waist (remember what i said about eating lunch and dessert?).
I used the same belt and boots yet the outfit looks completely different – I really believe that accessories can make or break an outfit! The necklace is from Ebay, as per my previous post. Tshirt is Killstar (again a sale item – I only buy when they do sales!).
That is it for the Prague outfits! Part two is coming very shortly, with the actual travel post.
