I used to wear a lot of black in my high school days, particularly items that were goth and J-rock influenced. No, I didn’t walk around wearing black lipstick and fishnet stockings, but things like corsets, crucifixes, armwarmers, spikey jewellery and platform boots definitely had their place in my wardrobe. I don’t think I completely grew out of that phase as I naturally still gravitate towards that style. Since showing up to work in a long black lace dress is probably not the most ideal, I learn to break the pieces up and mix them in with more understated items.
Here I paired my rose necklace with an androgynous outfit. It was rather solemn, but fitting for Remembrance Day. I did purple socks because hello, that’s just how it goes.
