A Gothic Lolita's Tumblr. I post a bit of everything that interests me, but it tends to revolve around Gothic Lolita aesthetics. I'll post everything from tutorials and sewing projects to coords and photography. I'm also more than willing to help those new to the Lolita fashion, so if you have any questions at all, feel free to shoot me an ask.

I’m not usually the type to fawn over shoes. I save that for JSKs and things with pretty lace. But I’d love to add these to my collection!

On the left are American Duchess’s “Astoria” shoes in black. I think they’re a gorgeous, classic type shoe that would work beautifully for Gothic or classic.

On the right are a more “Classic” type—traditional brogues/Oxfords. I’ve seen plenty of offbrand ones, and I really don’t have any specific brand in mind for these—so long as they’re well-made. Though I don’t fawn over my shoes, I’m very specific about their sturdiness factor… If given the choice, I would rather pay twice as much for a pair of leather shoes I know I will either never have to replace, or only have to replace after extensive wear in destructive environments (such as walking on cobblestone in Europe…).
