Get Stylish Gothic for 2013!

We love Christmas! But with all the sparkly lights and tinsel there is a hint of the bittersweet. Party season will soon be over so most of us will be making the most of those New Year's celebrations. We will all be back to the usual mundane reality. Going back to work in the still adverse weather conditions is not fun. However there are ways to overcome the doom and gloom. New Years could mean a new you! It's the time of year when so many of us flock to the gym in our droves and those hairdresser and beauty salon appointments are made. If there was ever a time to reassess ones look then now would be the time to do it! 
What are your style resolutions for the next twelve months? Want to be more stylish? Expressive? More fabulous than ever before? In that case the first stop to the new you has to be The Gothic Shop: 
Flowers and Skull bag by Loungefly
Sugar skulls are known for being bright, a celebration of all things deceased. But they do not always need to be bright, we love them as an understated style too! This stunner of a bag by Loungefly has the archetypal sugar skull motif with flowers for a subtle look. An alternative look that has accents of Baroque as well as the Gothic. The pretty gold embroidery really make this bag precious, you have the secure inner zipped compartments. The Flowers and Skull from Loungefly is the ideal work bag to be seen with.

Anahita Fur Trim Hooded Bolero By Necessary Evil
Getting the balance between looking hot and feeling great is not an easy one. Being in those figure hugging corsets may look seriously sexy but can take it's toll. Sometimes all we want to do is be comfortable, but why can't we have it both ways? The Gothic Shop stock pieces that help you do just this.

One of the pieces that I adore is the fur trimmed bolero style jacket. With the faux fur trim on the hood and sleeves, it's very Anna Karenina in an updated Gothic version. On a practical level you have the versatility of a longsleeve jacket, great for those unpredictable weather days when they happen. Layer with a t-shirt or an elegant long sleeved top for comfy chic in the blink of an eye!

Sofia Black Winter Coat with Fur Trim Hood 
Winter is set to continue for a good few months yet! With January and February predicted to be the iciest months in years. Investing in a coat that will protect you from the elements is a must. But it's not all about those giant over-sized shapeless coats. The Gothic Shop have a superb collection of the most figure flattering coats around. The Sofia Black Winter Coat has everything a good Gothic winter coat needs.Tailoring to die for and superb style. Take a look at the rest of the coats and fitted jackets for Victorian steampunk bustle's, tail-like designs as well as darkly Lolita looks!
