Creepy Cute

We here at The Gothic Shop have a bit of a split personality. As much as we enjoy and delight in being mysterious and alluring and just a little bit scary, we also equally love combining the cute with the creepy and indulging our sweetly dark side.

But we think we're not alone there, and that a lot of you share the same inclinations as we do. 
Inspired by the new goodies which just arrived in our shop, we decided to take the plunge deep into the perky goth territory (and what a lovely plunge that was), and combine the cute and the creepy in four perfectly adorable sets. We hope you will like these sets, full of cats and bats and all things that make us happy!

We are so in love with this dress. It makes us feel like a grown up Wednesday Addams, and you can't tell us that that can be a bad thing. We added some cat-themed jewellery by Alchemy and a very grown up looking bag, with a very cartoonish cat print, just because. 

Can we ever have enough bats in our wardrobe? Pretty silly question, isn't it? One can never have enough bats in the closet! Especially not when they are embroidered on a perfectly adorable mini dress, in the shape of a purse, or an ear wrap!

You know what, we need more cats. Especially love cats on gorgeous retro style purses, to match perfectly with our rainy day outfit. A floaty chiffon dress, a frilly umbrella.. what better way to welcome Fall?

Ok, we may be getting a little bit ahead of ourselves with this one, but Halloween is coming pretty soon, and we are pretty excited about it! And besides, does anything embody creepy and cute better than Halloween? We don't think so! That's why we paired this bat-pocketed full circle skirt  with a Halloween print blouse and coffin-shaped earrings. It's (almost) the season, after all! 

What's your favourite cute and creepy combo?

Gothic Shades of Purple

One of the most popular colours alongside black and red, purple demands attention!  It has gothic characteristics full of mystery and sophistication.  Here are our top 5 picks to add a splash of purple to your wardrobe:

Gemini Princess Top, full black with double ribbon lacing over the breasts and revealing purple brocade with black lace trim.

Sweetheart Purple Lace Top, is just as gorgeous as the one above but with capped lace sleeves and purple fabric with a black lace overlay.  Featuring corset style lacing and a baby doll swing flare.

Elizium Purple High /Low Skirt,  an elegant yet seductive purple lined and black lace skirt. Show off some leg when worn alone or add luxury when worn over as an overskirt.     


Available to pre-order, this purple Winona Dress by Sinister has blown us away with its sweetheart neckline and fitted bodice trimmed with Venetian lace, black velvet and taffeta.  The perfect ensemble for that special occasion.

Or you can opt to accessorise with a cute bag like this round little number by Alchemy Gothic, which features a purple cross decoration.
