Style Me… Nu-Goth

I have created a challenge for myself to look into, learn and play around with different alternative styles, Style Me Thursdays. Every Thursday I thought it would be fun to look into a different style. I think as well as learning about new fashions I will also be add new things to my own wardrobe. My own style changes a lot I find myself buying things that I like rather than fitting in with a certain aesthetic. I am also going make an item of clothing or accessory that will go with that style.

So today I am going to look into a relatively new fashion style….

February Buys

I haven’t brought much this month, but I think what I have gotten is super cute!

Pusheen T’shirts! Primark £6 Hello/£8 Mermaid

I haven’t got many t-shirt so these are going to be perfect for the summer! They are so cute and I love little pusheen!  The mermaid version has a faded pink to white background too, so its perfect for pastelly fairy kei style days.

Fluffy Blue Petticoat! Charity Shop £4

I got so lucky and found this petticoat for only £4! It doesn’t look used and it is really puffy, with loads of layers. Usually a petticoat this long and full would be around £30, so I am really happy with this purchase. It is quite long which is a shame it doesn’t work with most of my skirts, however it will be perfect for my dress/skirt from Lindy Bop.

Moisturising Cream/Eye Gel Boots 3 for £3

So my partner needed some face wash and this stuff was cheap and it had the deal for 3 for £3 so we thought we would get the face wash and  and get a few other bits. I needed something for my eyes as I have been getting really bad eye bags lately. I didn’t expect these to work that great; they where cheap and in the essential range. However these have worked amazingly! My skin feels smoother and is brighter and the skin under my eye doesn’t feel so thin. I also have very sensitive skin and have had no break outs from using these.  So I would definitely recommend these products for a cheap alternative from the expensive brands.
