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.

Although it was the heaviest item of clothing in the suitcase, which was straining past the 20kg limit, I couldn’t travel to America without this new grey dress I recently bought from Joe Browns, I absolutely love it! And then, during our month in Connecticut we had the opportunity for a brief weekend trip to Boston, Massatusetts, so we thought we’d use make the most of the New England fall colours to take outfit photos for the blog….
circus fashion
Could The Greatest Showman film spark a circus fashion trend?
March 17, 2018
(Alternative title: Clowning about in the woods!) I became a little suspicious back in November when I had the chance to browse some well-known high-street shops in a city. I noticed that the stripe trend had turned vertical, and wider, like circus tents! And combined with ruffles, the effect of these details does point to the circus! It’s been known to happen before with a popular musical movie: Do you remember the 1920’s fashion trend of 2013 that well and truly kicked off after the success of The Great Gatsby? I for one am not complaining, I love everything about the circus, particularly the wonderful clothing!….
