OOTD- Black velvet and lace

Hello. Time for another OOTD. I’m posting this one day later than I should because I wasn’t satisfied with the makeup and decided not to post it yesterday. Today I just thought what the heck, sometimes you mess up your makeup and it’s not a real problem so whatever. I was inspired by some victorian clothing when I dressed up, even though my outfit isn’t really victorian.OOTD2.jpgnamn.jpg

In Berlin!

Hi dearies. Today is almost The last day of My extended weekend trip to Berlin. It’s been great most of The time and a very fun experience. Berlin is a city perfect for those who like culture, pubs, history (perferably ww2) secondhand and other shopping.
I love this city and I would consider living here in The future!

Love,
Viola Whimsical

 

 

 

Who is Viola Whimsical? – Fashion (OLD, from 2013)

Hi! Welcome back. Todays post will be about fashion and my opinions on it.

I have always had a love for alternative looks. I remember being a kid and seeing alternative people when being out of town and falling in love with every single one of them. I stared at them and took in all the details in my little brain. At the age of 9 I told my mother to not buy me any more colourful clothes, I wanted them black!

I started to listen¬†to some ”darker” music at the same time.¬†I played sims as a kid and always dressed my sims in dark clothing with lots of makeup and dyed their hair in crazy colours.¬†¬†I had a clear¬†picture in my head of how I wanted to look but It was so hard being the only one with such intrests in a little town. I didn’t even know the name of the look I was searching for, and I had no one¬†to¬†ask.¬†One day I looked in a magazine. In that specific magazine I found out about a Swedish site that at the time sold a lot of the things I dreamed of. It was a joy for the eye, and I stayed on that site for hours. The fashion I was searching for was goth. It was like finally coming home.

Being that weird little kid in a small town was so hard. I used to cry a lot and write all of my struggles down in dairies.¬†If it could just float out in form of a black wordvomits¬†on the paper pages, I wouldn’t have to be hateful towards other people in real life.

So goth it was! When entering goth I felt weird at times, because everywhere I looked on the internet everyone had everything completely black, everything! Me being a blonde left me with the thoughts of not really completely being goth, which saddens me when I think about it today.

I say, when entering a fashion, THE FASHION DOESN’T RULE YOU. It is YOU WHO RULE THE FASHION. Not the subculture either for that matter. Fuck the stereotypes!

It may¬†sound clich√©, but a lot of clich√© things are actually true. You find which part of a fashion (If there is opinions to choose between diffrent types example:¬†substyles within the goth. BTW, WHICH MOST ALTERNATIVE FASHIONS TODAY HAS!)¬†and make it yours! You take bits and parts of the things you love and mix them together so they fit you. For we are not¬†one label, we are all not¬†ONE person and¬†especially not a blank¬†STEREOTYPE.¬†We are all individuals. Sure, one can love the same type of clothing, lipstick and haircolour, but there is ALWAYS going to be something diffrent about us¬†that makes us idividuals. Whatever if someone laughs at you, or tells you that you aren’t goth or whatever you now are, screw them right? Who said that you¬†have to meet¬†other peoples standards? You¬†are being true to yourself!¬†And one does not live for everyone else sake, right? So don’t care what other people think! I call myself goth because It just feels right, It just¬†feels like me, ¬†and if someone is going to tell me¬†otherwise then I won’t give a damn ūüôā ! I am goth, I am not, who cares! I will still wear the things I like with or without the label.¬†Remember that it¬†is not the label who is important and desides whenether if you¬†should ¬†wear certain things or not.

Now those where some of my thoughts on alternative fashions.

I¬†love elegnat gothic fashion! I love to watch clothing¬†and all it’s details from numerous of eras back in time, such as rococo for example.¬†I love lolita fashion. Especially gothic lolita since it combines dark and light, creepy and cute perfectly. It combines¬†most of the things¬†I like in¬†goth fashion and does¬†the same with lolita!¬†It is where I like to be. Laces, pearls,¬†bows,¬†oh all the wonderful things!¬†I sew a lot of things for myself, I am currently sewing a puffy petticoat for my skirts. Summer is just the perfect time to sew, since there is no school for 2 months!

And that leaves us at the last part of this post, and starts with the next post of these get to know Viola posts, DIY.

See you soon!
