Winds of a dying dream

What do you do when the wind is blowing so hard you can barely stand? Well, you go out and take pictures, because such opportunities do not arise that often.


There I was, already excited about the first little trip of the year coming up, when I was informed about an angry wind coming this way. Images of Victorian tormented heroines came flooding in, and I knew it was meant to be! I had to answer the calls of my creativity. And so I went out to find some fabrics and lace in order to put together what you see in these pictures. 

I knew I wanted something extremely light, in order for it to blow like crazy in the wind. Thus, black veil was the obvious choice.  I put together some medieval detachable sleeves and a hood to complete the look. The rest of the outfit is mostly made up of second hand finds and the amazing True Corset mesh cincher

Hope you guys like the result as much as I do! Looking at these photos I am reminded how lucky I am to have someone who tolerates me enough to go through freezing weathers, in order to bring to life my dreamy images. This is me thanking you! ❤

  1. Hello! I’m a fan of your blog. I love your style 🙂 it’s progressive and dark at the same time but not heavy. I was wondering why you rolled back to pure goth style from what I call “post-goth”. I do love it, don’t get me wrong, you are gorgeous and it does suit you. Just curious. 🙂

    1. Hi Mary! Firstly, I want to thank you so much for your lovely words. I am extremely happy that you enjoy the blog! I did not actually roll back to pure goth. This was an idea of a photo-shoot that popped up in my mind and wanted to do it, so I see it more as a manifestation of my imagination. In my everyday life, I dress as what you might call a “post-goth” but not only. I do not know how to describe my style actually… Maybe a minimal goth is most fitting. 🙂 Hope I answered your question and feel free to get back to me for anything style/fashion/inspiration related topics.

      Lots of love! :*

      1. Yeah, minimal goth sounds quite right. I really enjoyed the photoshoot btw, it was gothic and classy. My opinion is that It’s very easy to turn gothic to “cheesy” (don’t really know how else to describe it) but you kept it to a high level. Watching these pics my mind wondered to several old classic stories I’ve read (e.g., Poe, Shelley, Bronte etc ) Keep it up! 🙂

        1. Thank you! I absolutely know what you mean, those were mainly my inspiration behind this outfit. I was thinking of Victorian gothic novels and how I would think a heroine would look in those novels. I’m so happy you enjoyed the shoot, it means so much, and that’s why I continue on doing what I do. Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful day!
