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.

Visiting the Jack o’lantern Blaze & wearing my new purple coat
October 30, 2018
We couldn’t be in America without visiting a Halloween event, could we? Friends recommended the Jack o’lantern Blaze at Croton-on-Hudson in New York, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. This event sells out weeks beforehand, but I think I happened to be online when a new batch was released for an 8:30pm time slot on Tuesday. So I bought the tickets in a bit of a panic, but didn’t really know what it was I was buying them for!…

How to style a floral shirt dress; perfect spring fashion
May 29, 2018
I don’t know about you, but as we marched into April I had so had enough of winter! I was desperate to move away from my dark coloured winter wardrobe and wear some florals. I only went in Primark to buy a cheap skin-coloured bra as we were away in the camper and I’d forgotten to pack one! But on my way to the till I spotted this floral shirt dress that I just picked up (along with a mustard dress, coming to the style inspo section on the blog soon!) and took it with me….
how to buy jersey dresses
A guide to buying jersey dresses. Styling a Joe Browns floral dress
April 30, 2018
This jersey dress from Joe Browns made its way into my clothing collection recently, so I thought (for a change) I would share it with you before it goes out of stock! If there’s one item of clothing I’ve been reaching for lately, it’s been a dress made out of lovely comfy stretchy material! Jersey, by the way is what t-shirts are made of; a woven fabric with some stretch, sometimes with added elastane or lycra for extra stretch. Through winter I’ve been wearing them with a snuggly jumper over the top and thick leggings underneath and it meets that elusive requirement of being comfortable to wear, but still looks good enough to leave the house in. However, there are good and bad points that need considering when shopping for a jersey dress…..
