The month of February makes me think of lace and red and stockings and such, so I feel it is a perfect time to be posting some of my cabaret/burlesque goth looks. One of my favourite things about the goth music and club scene is that you can get creative and wear a variety of different styles. I usually like to wear clothes that fall more in to the cyber category, but I am getting bored with that and have been trying out cabaret/burlesque styles lately. This style involves elements such as garter belts, stockings, fans, corsets,etc; I suppose it could be described as burlesque-type outfits with a gothic twist.

I used a bunch of Estee Lauder Cyber Green, it looks mostly black here but it gives off a bit of a dark green shimmer in different lighting. It is a great shadow!

One of my favourite new finds for my wardrobe is this shrug! It can be worn with many different things to change up an outfit. I love all the different lace and materials and I love that it ties in the back so as to be adjustable! It has these cute little chains with crosses hanging down from the one side of it as well! Shrugs unfortunately emphasize the fact that I am broad-shouldered but on the plus side they hide my upper arms which I do not like.
Are you ready for spring makeup yet or are you still stuck in winter colours like me?
