Gothic and Alternative clothing
I’ve got a fair bit to say about this website. First of all, the website itself is good – well laid out, well styled, there’s a sizing chart etc and above all, the clothes are good value for money. Nice-looking goth clothes are quite hard to come by, and this website sells them at a lower price to the others that I found.
However, their customer service is completely and absolutely terrible! My husband ordered the Enchantress Dress for me, and two girl’s medieval dresses for our daughters, four weeks before Christmas, thinking they should easily get to us in time. Shall I tell you when I got mine? Two weeks ago! Shall I tell you when the kids ones came? Last week! And they were the wrong ones!!! This is terrible!! They never answer the phone number that we had, and I left about 6 messages on the machine (they did get them because their message changed). They also never responded to the several e-mails we sent them; and even ignored us cancelling the order, and sending the items anyway. It was absolutely ridiculous. They were able to take the money from the credit card immediately though.
Coincidentally a friend of ours also ordered from them and had to wait months for her dress, and then it didn’t fit so she sent it back. (Don’t know yet how easily she got her money back).
I’m annoyed because they must rely on the fact that most people won’t bother sending the items back because of all the fuss, and that’s exactly what I’m doing too. Our daughters love their new dresses, which we gave in and let them have, despite not being the ones we ordered. And my dress is lovely. The quality isn’t amazing, but perfectly acceptable. But I wouldn’t recommend buying from this website if you want a smooth transaction.

A capsule wardrobe
Is a capsule wardrobe the right way to go? I tried it for a month to find out.
February 13, 2018
There are several YouTubers and bloggers I follow who live by a capsule wardrobe. They don’t just live by it; they fully recommend it, citing how wonderful it is to know they can get out of bed in the morning and easily choose an outfit that will colour co-ordinate and work for them. I have been fascinated by this, but to be honest, I’ve always thought it wasn’t really for me, I mean, if you want to see the state of my wardrobe/dressing room, then take a look at the tour coming soon to my YouTube channel! However, for four weeks at the beginning of the year, I went to stay in America (accompanying Chris on a work trip) so I really didn’t have a choice as everything I wore for a month had to fit in my suitcase. I’m currently typing this on the plane coming home and I thought I would share how I got on with my experiment with a capsule wardrobe….
Weekly Wardrobe – styling an embroidered top
August 8, 2016
I know it makes no sense weather-wise, but just as much as I like the look of a vest top with trousers, I like a long-sleeved top with shorts! When I found out this week’s theme from Not Dressed As Lamb was embroidery, I thought I’d have no problem finding items to go with it in my wardrobe – I work all the time with stunning embroidered fabric from India, so I see it often, but it turns out this one blue shirt is the only item I own myself. So to give you a little variety, I styled it up twice….
Weekly Wardrobe – Polkadots
September 5, 2016
When I found out the theme for #IwillwearwhatIlike was polkadots, I thought, yes! I can really go for it this week! I’d already worn my red polkadot dress for the red, white and blue theme recently, so this black and white one is my best option. I do think of the 1950s with a spotty pattern, so I had a go with winged cat eyes for my make-up this time. I’m not sure how successful I was – I need to invest in a good liquid eyeliner I think, but I don’t think I did too badly with my chunky Benefit Bad Gal pencil….
