Were you ever a Goth and/or would you consider adding a Gothic subtone to your look??? I tried to be a Goth (blonde hair dyed jet black, black lace, crinolines etc) and certainly had enough Gothic tastes (gin, Baudelaire, Wuthering Heights, Victoria Holt novels, teen angst, The Cure, intense crushes that nothing could quench except for when they were requited) but looked like a mental patient escapee.
These days, whilst I respect a good Goth look & I live in a Goth infested area, any form of Gothic accessory would clash with my Qi, Feng Shui, Chakra whatevs aesthetic. Plus it’s fussy. And all i really do is trackpants, jeans, sarongs, american apparel shirts etc. My son and his friends are all terrifed of Goth girls as think they dress like “creepy Victorian undeads” but they quite like the sexier end of Goth fashion, that’s more like dominatrix/vampire/leather Kate Beckinsale in whatever that dreadful vampire movie was called.
But it’s back-back-back as I believe Italian Vogue & so would you/could you do it and did you ever? Astrologically it, of course, just screams Scorp. But I think Cancerians/Katakas would also be SO drawn to it for a chance to ponce about in ye olde clothes styles & cameo brooches etc.
