The Lust List | Psychobilly/Gothabilly Style

Hi Darlings,

Autumn is well and truly here, we have had quite a few cooler days, rainy nights and chilly winds so in my mind, Autumn has well and truly arrived. A few months ago, I decided to put aside my black clothing and pip for a florals and bright colours for summer. However, Summer is over and thus I am ready to revive my gothabilly and psychobilly style for Autumn. Gothabilly and Psychobilly style is similar to rockabilly and pinup but with a gothic edge.

It is in essence, my style to a T!! While, for summer, I do like the odd floral here and there, my penchant for spookiness and victorian decadence always brings me back to my gothabilly roots. So whack on your black flicks and dark red lips and let's delve deeper into this style!

I have decided to kick off Autumn by doing some 'Lust Lists!' These will be a fun selection of accessories and clothing that are sat on my to-buy list (although now I have a job, my money will all be gone!)

First up is bags! The easiest way to start incorporating psychobilly/gothabilly style is accessories! That means investing in some feminine, slightly gothic handbags, shoes, hair accessories etc! Above are a few of my favourites from Attitude Clothing Co (a website I regularly lust over) and all of these bags are under 50 pounds. The first one is a very snazzy, more retro looking bag, in a classically gothabilly striped pattern. The next one is my personal favourite, a book clutch bag, but the bag has a classic Lucifer sigil, yknow that ever so slightly satanic symbol. Third across is the funko cat bag, after all why have a cat bag when you can have a satanic cat shoulder bag! An ideal Halloween, gothabilly bag, and cats!! Finally is one that I wouldn't say is gothabilly, but it's certainly kitsch and has a vibe of 50s pastel goth. This adorable seashell bag is the ultimate ariel accessory for all you landlocked mermaids out there!

Next up we have shoes! Now I am a self-confessed shoe-aholic so I am always on the lookout for quirky slightly vintage shoe styles. I know with gothic shoes, they tend to be clunkier; if like me you lean towards more of a vintage aesthetic then never fear, I am here with suggestions! Vintage style shoes are hard to find on the cheap, so a lace up brogue or heel in black or brown is an utter staple! If like me you have a flair for the dark and dramatic, then step away from the black suedette and let's talk!
Here is a selection of a few shoes that are perfect for you psychobilly, or gothabilly girls out there; and just look at them! Are they not wonderful?! Shoes, glorious shoes! The flats are the far left are just a classic ballet flat but with a glorious bat applique at the front, which instantly makes them better! Why have just black, when you can have bat? Next up are some moon studded ankle boots. When boring black ankle boots get you down, whack some metal moons on them and boom witchy realness! The calf length boots with butterflies are literally the boots of my wet dreams. I am so tempted by this style and honestly, they may be joining my winter wardrobe! Lastly, are the slightly LITA-esque boots. This is a very classic gothabilly look and although ridiculous heel height, not that hard to walk in due to the platform at the front! 

This is just the first of many Lust List's coming up, and as we draw closer to Halloween, I will be exploring more gothabilly and psychobilly style! Let me know if you see any favourites in this list or indeed if you have your own alternate style!

Until next time
