Thrift Style Thursday - Gothic City

Today's thrift style Thursday theme is Gothically Gorgeous - I was so lost at first as to what I as going to do that I could also make appropriate for work.  Then I remembered this short sleeve blazer and suddenly I had an outfit.  Is it terribly dark?  Maybe not, but I think it works pretty well!


I am also getting the hang of this camera!  I'm pretty dang excited about that - I might even start getting more use of out of it than Nate does, ha!  He loves to take pictures when we go on vacations and such, but they often live in the camera for the rest of eternity.  It's not as much fun to take an edit them all!

Blazer - thrifted, Dress - American Eagle 
Sandals - thrifted, Bag - Coach (Poshmark) 


I don't make a very good goth - I was far from goth in high school.  I was the geek - the band geek, the choir geek, the drama geek.  I wrote for the paper.  I was the total geek who was just a slight bit preppy. Yet both Nate and I had some friends that probably qualified as goth.  We kind of didn't care who we hung out with, most geeks really don't, he he.

  9. Haha, I am like you, Bethie - not a gothic gal, but a band geek and newspaper nerd. I love that you took the black and made it super classy. The short-sleeved jacket is beautiful and so feminine. I love it. :)

  12. I love this look--what a cute blazer! Yeah, I was pretty much the opposite of goth too. Lots of pink. Girly stuff. Pretty much the anti-goth. But I also had some goth-leaning friends.
