Style Concept: Goth Cheerleader Goes Post-Apocalyptic CultistAugust 21, 2015Saskia C.
A couple of days ago, Sary from The Walrus Room posted this
amazing blog post dedicated to the reassessment of her own style. Not
only did I love the concept, I was also in extreme procrastination mode
due to my rapidly approaching law exam. In other words, I had to give it
a try, immediately. Following Sary's example, I used this
excellent template from Into Mind.
For me, this style concept is supposed to be a source of
procrastinspiration rather than an attempt at keeping my style within
certain bounds. The latter isn't even worth a try; I am entirely made up
of contradiction, obsession and chaos. I'm awfully sorry, wallet, I can't help it either.

I will freely admit that my talents do not lie in accessorizing or finding the perfect pieces or even in thrift shopping. No, my personal talent lies in needlessly creating a context for certain looks. "Yes of course I need another hooded cardigan; what if mine is in the laundry when Cthulhu awakens? Do you want me to get devoured?"

Having attended a Catholic primary school with an actual dress code, the word ‘uniform’ leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Besides, I feel like choosing one particular look that embodies my style would be far too limiting. So instead of merely glancing at a picture of a certain outfit before scrolling past, just imagine layers and layers of black clothes, ominously flapping in the wind. The person wearing the clothes is hidden under a dark hood. A storm is rising. Suddenly, all of the fabric is pulled up by the storm and the cloth disappears up in the night sky, in a whirlwind of black. You expect to see a person emerge from that darkness, but no one is there. You are completely and utterly alone. And then you wake up and question the entirety of your existence over your morning coffee*.
