I think I first fell in love with the idea of western goth with Riccardo Tisci’s Spring 2009 collection. – dark, edgy, and empowering. The west can be a kind of spooky, foreboding place so the unexpected combination kind of makes sense. This dark floral dress from & Other Stories has the perfect combination of prairie dress vibes and dark romanticism that fits so well in this sort of landscape. I feel like a dress like this shouldn’t be treated as too precious. It needs tough leather accessories to balance the femininity, like a silver western belt and ankle boots. I’ve been obsessing over these AllSaints lace-up boots for months and love how much they look like the (much more expensive) Chloe boots running wild all over fashion week street style. Expect to see more of them this month – max witchy vibes for Halloween. ?
