Cabaret Goth

Recently, I attended a corset fashion show for a local designer. It was held in a large nightclub with a stage and in addition to the fashion show, there were burlesque performers as well. The event was really well organized and I had a great time! I might also be getting a corset from the company for my birthday ;) For my attire for the evening, I decided to dig through my clothes and try my hand at a "cabaret goth" style outfit. When dressing in this style, one combines dark elements with burlesque elements such as garters, stockings, and corsets. For my makeup, I wanted to try out my new MAC Runaway Red lipstick (which I missed the first time they released it and I was crabby) and some of my Silk Naturals pretties.

  1. Your outfit is so sexy! Love how you pull off cabaret goth!

  2. I think this is one of my favorite things you've done so far. Head to toe it's just pretty awesome. Glad you had a good time! I've never had a corset before, but they look kind of neat.

  3. Wow! That's an awesome ensemble. I love the fan and the necklace and, well, everything. Also, I'm glad you picked up Runaway Red - it's a stunner!

  4. You are one hot mama! I love that necklace!

  5. Purgatory looks so awesome on you.

  6. Holy moly, I love ALL THE THINGS IN THIS POST.

  7. You look fantastic. I love the cabaret goth look. Your gauntlets and garters are fabulous. :)

  8. Cute outfit! I used to put together outfits like that to go out it when I was younger... Not gonna lie, I kind of miss it! I think I had about 5 pairs of those stockings at once. I usually just cobbled together pieces from more mainstream stores (I miss the Rampage store that used to be nearby!) with things that I made or dyed to match, although I did have a couple of pieces from Heavy Red that I relied heavily on. I love that red lipstick on you, it's gorgeous, and the red glitter on the lower lash line is to die for.

  9. LOVE your outfit, LOVE your makeup! The red lip is beautiful, the cheek colour is stunning, and I love how the little pops of red shimmer on the eye tie it all together :3

  10. UNF. (all that needs to be said)

    To answer your question regarding Violent Lips, yes they're very comfortable only feels a bit weird in the beginning. Oh and they're rather dry too, but there's no problem tossing on some gloss on top of them if one's bothered!

  16. Steampunk + Purgatory = a hundred kinds of amazing! You always look incredible.
