Outfit Snap: Dreary Night Antique Doll

A few weeks ago, I escorted a friend who recently moved to my city to a local goth club for a fan meetup. I always love to go to the goth club so I eagerly volunteered to go with her, even though I know nothing about the fandom which the meet was about T_T. Here's my outfit!

Headbow: Claire's
Jacket: F21
Overdress: vintage Laura Ashley
Fox stole: from the Cat's Meow Vintage Show
Underskirt: Vintage from Height-Ashburry in San Fran
Wooden rosary: thrifted
Wedge sandals: Target

I was going for a kind of elegant doll look, maybe reminiscent the work of Takato Yamamoto or of the talented duo Kokusyoku Sumire. I really enjoy using vintage items in coordinates that feel like lolita, but are really not lolita at all! Do you like my new hair and glasses? Lots of people thought my hair was a wig!

I'm trying to make an effort to make more outfit posts, but I'm terrible at remembering to get pictures of my outfits!

Thanks for looking <3 p="p">


  1. Your outfit reminds me a lot of oldschool lolita, haha. I love your fox! Actually, your hairdo is what I have been wearing practically since 2007, in varying lengths. People sometimes ask me whether or not it's a wig, too, but that's usually when it's dyed an unnatural color :)

    1. Thanks! That's kind of what I was going for... I kept calling my look "proto-lolita" all night, haha. Laura Ashley was a big inspiration for brands back in the old days, so I guess that's fairly accurate! I think pageboy wigs are so common these days that bob haircuts are always associated with wigs. Ah well!
