The Gothic Pinup - Halloween Featuring Hell Bunny, Cherri Lane & Punky Pins
Posted on 08 October 2016
For this post I wanted to write about a style that's very close to my own personal clothing preferences. Back in the 90's I was a gawky teenage with Betty bangs (I had no idea how cool they could be) and no real idea about fashion until I discovered alternative fashion and a deep dark love for all things gothic! While my own personal styling is now full of color and prints, I have to admit that daily I'm an all black kind of girl and live in LBD's and my biker jacket.
But my heart and my eye are always drawn to a more gothic version of pinup. From little black cocktail dresses to wardrobe staples like a cardigan or pencil skirt, these are the things that fill my wardrobe. Plus with Halloween approaching fast, why not shop for both costumes and everyday wear!
This spooky twist on the swing skirt dress with this amazing new print from Hell Bunny. Super flattering on all body shapes and so easy to style. Pair this with a cardigan for day and black and silver accessories for the evening. The pop of orange and purple on this fabric makes me swoon and the bustline does wonders for all chest sizes. You can purchase a purple petticoat here to pair with this wonderful dress.
Hell Bunny Patricia Dress - $59.99
Looking for something a little more Art Deco? Hell Bunny's new Patricia dress is a stunning flapper style frock with a modern fit twist. Featuring delicate lace sleeves, mesh and a ruched mid section that flatters your waist. The detailing on the neckline of this dress is absolutely stunning and I love the deep v shape.
Lace, polka dots and sheer fabrics - Oh my! If you are looking for the ultimate mixture of bad girl pinup with a gothic twist this style is for you. A form fitting stretch blouse with a sweetheart shapes bust and sheer polka dot overlay. Pair this with your favourite pencil skirt and black pups for a killer gothic inspired style.
Maybe this amazing Restyle purple Shakespeare handbag is more you? Brilliantly designed to look like a vintage book while still being a perfectly crafted and working handbag. Perfectly vintage with a quirky gothic twist.
Punky Pins - Redrum Necklace - $29.99
Now lastly, an accessory for horror movie lovers like me! I'm absolutely crazy about The Shining and I have the carpet print as my doona cover, phone case etc, so I've always had a soft spot for REDRUM! This blood red acrylic text with an extra cute bloody axe is perfect for something a little bit of horror love each and ever day.
