Victorian Gothic at The Gothic Shop

Do you love your Victorian Gothic Steampunk style? Take a look at the new Steampunk inspired Gothic lovelies at The Gothic Shop:

Mainstream fashion meets Victorian Gothic in this quintessential dress. The long elegant length gives anyone the look of having long slender legs. An elegant Guipure Venise floral motif is set around the chest with a crocheted neckline and flared cuffs. There is real attention to detail in this design, just take a look at the 'V' shaped sheer mesh back. Everything about the Cruella Black Lace dress is so darkly decadent.

Underbust corsets are the epitome of Victorian elegance, they just pull that waist right in! Take a look at this corset style top by Restyle. Fasten it at the front with sturdy clips and lace it up at the back for the most slender figure. The satin the corset is made from will add a sleek shine to your look. Wear with bright blouse or t-shirt for a cute alternative look. A ruffle skirt, top hat, cameo brooch and some silken black evening gloves and you are good to go with your Gothic ra ra style.    

Want to go for a more cyber western feel for your outfit? Check out this pretty lace fringed blouse. The striking scarlet is a superb combination with the black lace around the neck. It's fitted at the waist to flatter an hourglass figure. The high neck with lace is the centre piece of the top, a beautiful key feature! If you want a feel of the wild west then this is the top to be seen in. Available in black too, the Drusilla blouse can be teamed with a matching frilled or plain black skirt for a twist on your Gothic western look. 

Corsets don't just make for sexy tops! As can be seen in this lovely example. The lace up design is superb when on leggings too. The snakeskin print, the wet look, the lace- we love everything about it. The sheer sections of the leggings are made from a mesh with a floral design. The purple panels could be stockings while the black laces bring a wickedly burlesque element. What is there not to love? Wear it with a short top, a corset if you feel daring enough! But note- as they are tight fitting pick a smaller size for a tailored look.   

This stunning high neck cut out lace blouse is a wonderful piece for your wardrobe. Tailor made to fit beautifully, the front zip up corset is finished off with a lace trim at the top. The netted shoulders add a lady like grace along with the sleeves and high neck. The real feature is the laced up back with its cut out feature here too, the high neck is fastened at the hairline with a single button. Again another deliciously decadent corset top that would be perfect for those special occasions.
