This post is about several things. First, this morning, I read Amy's (of The Ultimate Goth Guide) post this morning about the 30 Goth Challenge and the question of the day was 'What're your worst and best experiences with non-goths?". Well, I had a great experience today. =P My cousin and sister and I were sitting at In N Out for lunch today, and this little old man in a pink t-shirt sitting at the table next to us, leans over, and asks what we're all dressed up for. Mind you, I'm wearing a tight little spandex dress printed with bows on it, paired with my ripped black skinnies, and combat boots. My sister next to me is wearing black pants with laces up the sides, and a purple and black tank top saying 'I heart Creeps' and her make up is her gothy best. We replied to the old man, "We just dress like this everyday." And of course we were expecting a scolding on the way we look, but then he said, "well, you girls look great. I love it." and, with smiles, we each went back to eating our food. Then, just as we were leaving, I went to the old man and told him he made my day, and he said, "Oh well you girls definately made mine. I'll have a good day now."
This isn't a daily occurance so it was heartwarming. =]
On another note, we went thrift store shopping this morning! =D Yes, much excitement. I didn't have but $14 on me, so I didn't buy much. I bought a black wrap made of cashmere (definately something for winter) that was beautiful, got it for $4. And I got a nice slimming black over shirt for $3. I'll post pictures in my next post. =]
After the thrift stores, we headed down the street to a store called Planet Funk. It's one of those expensive alternative stores that is like a mix between what Hot Topic should be, and the Blue Moon store, plus Toxic, mixed in with some marijuana. But I'm still a fan of Bob Marley, so I don't mind a little reggae. We just went in to get some fashion ideas, everything was out of budget. Though I had originally gone in so I could buy a cute little nose stud. Last time I was in there, they had little heart nose studs and some tiny stars, a cherry one, and the one I wanted to buy, I little circle with a blue swirl on it. But alas! They were out of the one I wanted, so I left the store empty handed.
Then, we were off to the other cousin's house to pick her up. Tonight, we're going to a Katy Perry concert. (This had been a birthday present for each of us). So now, we're discussing what we're going to wear and how outrageously 80's we'll be for the concert. And don't judge based on my music tastes. I like Goth music artists as well as Katy Perry. I mean, come on, she's wonderfully great at standing out. It's definately something to admire.
So now, I'll thank you for reading thus far. =] That's all for now.
