Hi lovely people!
I’ve decided for Outfit Of The Day posts I’m only going to link to wear to buy one or two main items. This is partly because I’m sure your savvy enough to find your own wardrobe basics (to suit your own budget) and partly because I want to promote delving into the back of our own wardrobes and only adding a new piece every now and then to create outfits, rather than always buying fast-fashion.
Clearly Instagram knows me very well as it suggested I follow Hell Bunny, a UK shop which sells a lot of retro Rockabilly and sexy vintage styles of clothing and accessories. The clothes are new and well made and the sizing is spot on. I bought this Poseidon blouse because I’d never seen a pretty blouse with such a an awesome and unique pattern as this one before!
I already had the ‘pirate’ ankle boots after seeing them in the Vivienne Westwood shop and spotting an affordable pair in Topshop. I already had the the little cute-but-punky hoops and black skirt from EMP, and thin leggings from Matalan. Am I the only one who gets claustrophobic/stupidly hot wearing those really thick, shiny leggings that are everywhere now?

The first time I tried this outfit I wore 90’s style goth tights which were pretty opaque on the bottom, then had a black band and then were less opaque with a black line going upward, creating a grungy faux suspender pattern. Due to the camera flash making them look real, they made my outfit look less ‘relaxed pastel goth’ and more ‘Rocky Horror Show’! So I’ve worn totally opaque tights this time lol
