drink up sweet decadence

song of the day - Good Enough by Evanescence
Hey there sports fans!
So I've already done 2 fictional character style icons, seen here & here, and now it's time for a actual real person whose style I love. I've loved this woman's style for years now, everything I've seen her in is just amazing, and she always looks beautiful.
This person is Amy Lee, front woman of Evanescence.
I find this woman stunningly beautiful! The first time I heard Evanescence would have been around 2004, and I fell in love with the band. Bring me to life was the first song I'd listened to from them, and from then on Evanescence have been one of my favourite bands. Amy has an amazing voice, and the band in general are just so great, the music so powerful for me.
I think it was during the video for Going Under that I started to fall in love with Amy's clothes as well. In the video Amy has multiple outfits, but the main one for me is a red gothic dress with black detailing. It's a gorgeous dress, with stunning detail, and fits Amy really well.
And my love for Amy's clothes has just grown from there!
I can't wait to see what she'll be wearing next, and Evanescences new video (which I think is supposed to be from My Heart Is Broken)

these are screenshots from the lastest Evanescence video, and again, I love the dresses! such stunning detail.

What about you guys? Who is your style icon? Whose style do you admire?

It’s only fear after all

song of the day - Fear by Pauley Perrette
I am a huge fan of Pauley Perrette, and the first thing I ever saw her in was NCIS. Pauley plays the cheerful goth forensic scientist, Abby Scuito, who is just one of my favourite characters of all time!
But my love for them is not what I'm here to talk about, it's Abby's clothing that this post is dedicated to. A few months ago I did a post called "my fictional style icon" where I told y'all about how I love the costume designs for Charmed, and most of all for the character Phoebe Halliwell. Just think of this at my fictional style icon 2.0.
I love gothic fashion, there's just something about the clothing that I find amazing. And the wardrobe department at NCIS always style Pauley brilliantly.
I don't know what I can say about the clothes, other than I love them. I also think Pauley looks amazing in them, she's just gorgeous. I think my favourite part of Abby's look is the footwear; platorm boots are a firm favourite of mine.
You may have noticed that i don't actually wear anything gothic, this is mostly because there's only one place that I know of where I can actually go and buy the clothes. But also because the majority of online alt clothing stores are so hard to navigate.
Here's a video I found on youtube with some behind-the-wardrobe action
NCIS wardrobe department, you are awesome.
