Cat Creatures

My kitten walks on velvet feet
and makes no sound at all
and in the doorway nightly sits
to watch the darkness fall…

No other animal has such a strange place in our culture as does the cat. We have never dedicated as many works of art to another animal as we have the cat. It is at times a symbol of the supernatural, of the demonic and the sinister, at others a symbol of grace and elegance and a piece of wilderness sharing our homes, and yet at other times it is a playful, sweet companion, something innocent and cute. And in all their incarnations they have been linked to women, be they faithful protectors of the homestead, or burned alongside them on the stake for crimes  imaginary and unspeakable.

We decided to make The Cat our first theme for these new styling blogs, and took our inspiration from the cats ever changing nature.

The cats, they say, were once worshipped as gods, and it is something they never forgot. The Cat Goddess takes its inspiration from the ancient civilisation and their deep and loving connection to their feline companions.  We updated the dress to a more modern version, but kept the Ankh. Of course, this look is incomplete without a heavy eyeliner.

The Cat Goddess


The crazy cat lady loves her kitties loud and proud! This cute and whimsical is still stylish and just the right amount of playful without being childish or making you look a bit too much like a cartoon character. The bag, though, is what ties the entire outfit together


Cat People opts for a bit more toned down version of the crazy cat lady.  You may not be able to take your kitty to work, but there is nothing to say that a few cat-themed details would be out of place in an office setting.

No witch is complete without her Black cat! This deliciously dark set is just one pointy hat away from getting you declared the town witch, but if you ask us, every good town needs a witch or five, just to make sure.

Colour Me Goth!

Spring has finally arrived, time to start packing away our beloved coats and oversized jumpers and turn our attention to something more suited to the season.  Although we all love black, it's a great time to try out a splash of colour.  After all, colour adds passion and allure to the all-black goth.


Red like fire or blood on the skin, it has a sense of excitement or aggression.  We love the Burgundy Cross Cameo Skinny Fit Jeans,  Chicstar Velvet Fitted Jacket which lace up back and Red Ivy Gothic handbag by Banned which will certainly be at the top of our wishlist.



Purple conjures up images of magic and mystery and is the colour of royalty.  Love it or hate it purple is here to stay.   We have chosen the Belladonna Blouse and Artemia Victorian Satin Skirt  by Sinister as our go to outfit.  Alternatively it is super simple to accessorise with purple jewellery too!



White  is the colour of innocence and purity, we have just received the Ghost White Lace Gothic Fishtail Dress which is proving to be popular and selling out fast.   We will be restocking the black version next week.  Another classic from Burleska has got to be the White Satin Underbust Corset, an image of perfection Lady Amaranth wears it with a black bustle skirt and white mesh petticoat skirt.
