I haven't been updating my blog for a couple of weeks now, which I really regret. It's a necessity however now that I'm working on finishing my MA thesis. There's still lots of work to do and so little time... I'm still reading  blogs though and enjoying it immensely! More frequent updates will follow in Summer.
Today I got a present from my boyfriend that I didn't want to withold: I saw a beautiful satin dress at one of the 'Koninginnedag' (celebration of the Queen's birthday in the Netherlands) stalls of a gothic/alternative shop that I  visit fruequently.  Its original price was 80 euros, but now they sold it for 10 euros only! Thanks to my boyfriend I am now the owner of a wonderfully versatile dress... Although it's from one of the 'main' gothic fashion labels in the Netherlands ('Laughing Vampire'), it could pass for an ordinary cocktail dress as well. It's perfect for a family dinner during Christmas, but would look wonderful to a gothic/fantasy festival as well when combined with the right accessories. The dress is a bit tight, but I'm working on losing some weight anyway (already lost 3 kilos!). Here's a quick picture:

  2. Thank you!! :)
    The tights are actually a lucky find as well...I bought them during the sales and they make any outfit look just a little more special.
    I really love your blog by the way! The outfits are very inspiring. I hope to have more time soon so that I can actually comment to what people are posting. :D

  3. Yep, I totally agree. It does not look stereotypical "gothic" outfit. It is very very classy. I love the neckline and the fabric doesn't look cheap.
    3kilos! That's a lot. I am sure all anglosaxon readers out there will not have a clue what that is in pounds/stones.
