I wanted to wear it to Noc Noc last Saturday but I needed something simple to wear so that the collar and belt would be the focus of the outfit. I found a simple, black mini dress in my closet and wore it with my new badass stompy goth boots and the collar and the belt. It felt a little funny wearing something so simple to the club. Usually I love to dress up all goth costume like and wear something that makes me feel spectacularly pretty or pretty spectacular. But last Saturday I settled for something simple to show off the new boots, collar and belt.
We were there pretty early and at one point there was no one on the dance floor but 3 girls. It was a good song and I was getting ready to head for the dance floor myself when paraventur pointed something out I had not noticed. All three girls on the dance floor, although they were not together, we wearing pretty much the same thing: a black mini dress with a pair of flat black nearly knee high boots. Yes, exactly what I was wearing! I suddenly lost interest in dancing, at least until there were more people on the dance floor.
That's the last time I dress simple to Noc Noc. I'm used to getting compliments on my outfits, whether for how they look or just for the creativity of designing them and putting them together. It feels good to express myself and be appreciated for it. So to switch from that to just blending in, just didn't work for me. No more black mini-dresses for me.
