Back in July, I was delighted to receive an unexpected email from Trystan of This is CorpGoth announcing that she would be in Los Angeles soon for a weekend excursion. She suggested we get together for a drink while she was in my general vicinity. Thankfully, her arrival synced perfect with my schedule, so we met in her hotel lobby for a little Gothy girl talk. This was my first blogger meet-up, and I’m a fairly reserved person in real life, so I was hoping I wouldn’t be too quiet and bore her to death. 😉 Trystan is delightful and charismatic, and I felt like I already knew her from following her blog for years (in fact, hers was one of the first Gothic fashion blogs I discovered, and one that inspired me to start my own), so it turned out that I felt right at home chattering away with her.
Of course there was photographic evidence of this meeting of fashionable Goth minds. My dress is from White House Black Market. I thought it was perfect for going from office to evening, and I was channeling Billie Holiday (one of my latest obsessions) with a bold white hair flower and pearls. Trystan wore an adorable black sun dress trimmed in pink, with a matching hair flower and a fun shell necklace that we’ve seen on her blog. Also, how much do Goth girls in glasses ROCK?!
Also, a heads-up: the October 1 theme will be Black and White. Ooh, the fun we can have with this one… 😀
