Rainy-Day Goth

So it's finally been rainy in San Francisco! Which while I love rain, I've noticed it's not ideal weather for totally ooky-spooky victorian goth clothes. So with too much time on my hands and a polyvore account, I figured I'd come up with some outfit ideas for when the weather gets a little wet.

I know what you're thinking, rainboots are not goth! But one, when it pours like it does in SF you kind of need them. Two, these ones have a lace print on them! So they're kind of goth, enough. Plus they look really nice with the coat. Note: I did not actually make sure that the coats in these outfits are waterproof. Think of these as guidelines, not rules.

Here's something a little more gothy with the cape and the boots. The boots kind of remind me of the riding boots Lady Mary had in Downton Abbey. Also the umbrella is all sorts of awesome.

rainy day goth three

This is a much much more simpler outfit. It's subtly goth, because sometimes when it's wet and cold outside I just want to wear pants. Though being me, that does not mean just throwing on a t-shirt. So a button up and blazer combo works. The boots are a bit stompier than I would wear, but you get the idea.

This last one is the most victorian, over-the-top I would probably go during a rainy day. Even then it would have to be a light rainy day. But hey if the boots are waterproof enough and I won't be outside for long, it could work.

So there you go, four ideas to keep your gothiness even when the weather isn't ideal.

This is CorpGoth's Mid-Month Status Report: Go to Work Outfit

I've been reading CorpGoth for awhile and am a big fan of Ms. Trystan's style. Also her advice on how to stay true to your style while at the office has been awfully helpful. While I don't work in an office, I work retail the advice is still helpful. White House Black Market dress code is still business casual. Anyways, without further ado, onto my go to outfit!

Everything is from White House except for the hair clip which is from Target.

Cardigan : White House. Top: Thrifted. Skirt: Forever 21. Belt: H&M. 
Headband: Forever 21. Necklace: Vintage.

Yes these are from my tumblr outfit posts. I've been too busy at said work to take real blog post pictures. I'm sorry! Anyways, go to outfit is cardigan, top of some sort, skirt, usually a pencil skirt (I have three). It's an easy go to for me, and feels just a little pin-up which I like. So there you go, this Babybat's a baby Corp-Goth too!
