For a while know the lovely Ms Noire has been saying, “Ms Dead you need to do a blog.” Fascinated as she is by my large wardrobe and the vast array of accessories I possess. I’m neither a fashion expert nor a dedicated follower. Like most alternative people I make up my style as I go along. I pinch styles from everywhere, victorian corsets, 1950s pencil skirts, etc. mixing retro, horror, club, fetish and contemporary styles, to create my own look.
There are lots of cool goth, alternative, dark and unusual style/fashion/beauty blogs on the web and this does not pretend to be any of the above. However this is my own humble take on my own sense of fashion and beauty. It’s called Drop Dead Gorgeous as it seemed the easiest slogan to tie in with my surname of Dead.
Ms Noire has taken the photos of my outfits in isolation. This is to show of the variety and detail in my day to day outfits. Full frontal pictures would otherwise be a block of BLACK. Bex has whizzed the pictures through Instagram and made them look super cute.
I wear this hair clip quite a lot. I bought them as a set, but rarely wear both at the same time. One seems to work best on my little pin head.
This is one of my favourite skirts. I love Collectif, but often their clothes are not made of the best material and tend to split easily.
I’m also wearing my standard seamed stockings, I love stockings, particulary seamed ones and wear them all the time. My platform creepers are from Primark. I like creeper shoes but they are too flat for me, so when I saw these high heel ones for only £17 I had to have them.
This cute little watch was a Christmas present a few years ago. From Past Times, I love the victorian, filigree design.
I bought these long, silver, pearl style beads from the back of Leeds market for £2.
This black bow cuff/bracelet I bought from Miss Selfridge a few years ago. I tend to wear this a lot also as it goes with nearly everything.
So that’s my first blog, I hope I haven’t bored you too much.
