In My Feelings: Twisted Pink Grunge With A Gothic Twist!

Hey, guys, I am finally sharing how I style up my gothic grunge looks. I used to struggle with my style, but now I've really been searching for a style that makes me feel good from the inside out. 

And it started with my MOOD!

Yes, my mood has changed the way I look at my body and the way I style it in general.

Those of you who have been following me for a while know how much I love secondhand-and thrift shopping. A few months back, when I turned 48, I started looking at my style as a burden instead of an enjoyment.

After decluttering my closet one Saturday afternoon, I realized I was in a real style rut. I did not like anything I was wearing. And to be honest, I found myself wasting money on buying the same exact things all the time. When I first started my thrift journey, I was grabbing everything cheap. Then I realized all I had was a closet full of mix-matched thrift clothes. I knew I needed some direction. So, I started working on a thrifted wardrobe, and I learned something about myself.
Being a stylist, I wear black a lot, so how can I incorporate a black style into my daily life.
It has taken a while, but now I can honestly say I am well on my way to building myself the perfect wardrobe. 
I needed a versatile style that could go from work to maybe a quick brunch.

So, I ultimately decided to build my wardrobe around my work clothes. Since I am in black smocks most of the time. I've decided to jazz up the style I already have.
I will explain in another post or possibly in a video on my Youtube channel. The reason being I am still tweaking my wardrobe and will do so until I have the perfect gothic grunge style that fits my life perfectly. So, in the meantime, I will continue to share my journey of coming out of a style rut.

Now let's chat about the way I wear my pink style with a gothic twist.

First, I am wearing a dark black dress that I found from the second-hand store. Then I paired it with a pink scarf that I also bought while thrift snooping.

SideNote: One dress can be styled over 1,000 ways. That is a tip I always keep in mind when I am dressing for work or leisure.

Since I am going for a gothic look mixed with a tad bit of grunge.  I decided to go with a pair of gently used pink earrings. 
I wanted to keep my make-up look simple yet basic, by wearing a light base foundation, and a bold pink lip color by NYX powder puff.

When it came to the jewelry, I wanted to wear gold/ and silver metals mixed with a few black beads.

To top everything off, I paired everything with a rhinestone half vest, black shades, pointy-toed booties, and a second-hand purse.

In conclusion: I am learning to play with my clothes by finding pieces that fit my life. When I was a young mom, I wore mom clothes. Now that I am older, I want to wear funky and fly clothes.

I know wearing gothic, and grunge clothing can be a little hard looking in style. But, I am learning to put a twist to a style I already wear every day.
