So, walkawayinsin - perhaps you’d like to share some examples of what you think outfits that retain a goth edge yet are appropriate for corporate office jobs should be? Because to ME, those are all very nice examples of corporate goth style.
I’m one of the lucky ones - I live in Seattle, which is notoriously laid-back about personal style, and I work in the tech industry, where the quality of your work is more important than your hair color. But there are thousands of other goths who do have to have a more corporate/business-casual appearance. How do you suggest they dress? Do you have any wardrobe tips for them?
Lady of Manners, I expressed my solid opinion on how I thought these pictures weren’t goth FOR ME, not the whole “goth nation”. I didn’t want to offend anyone with my negative view on it. Just because I don’t think it’s so called “goth” doesn’t mean they shouldn’t think that themselves. I’m not their stylist, my lady, just a goth expressing her not-so-positive opinion.
this is to my taste milady - MY taste:
Lady of Manners herself wore some creative example:
I’m apologizing once again if my solid opinion hath offended, you ladies. It was my opinions, and they aren’t always pretty as bats. I’m not representing anyone but myself. But if this hurt you, guys too much, maybe I’ll keep such things on the inside for the rest of my life. *sighs and bows*
And I apologize if I made you feel uncomfortable! I missed the emphasis on the "*I*" in your first post about this! Corpgoth is a touchy subject, because I (and I suspect others) have seen a lot of people flare up about the notion that folks should be uber-spooky at all times.
(I’m immensely flattered that you included a photo of me in your examples. And awww, my girl Trystan from This is CorpGoth!)
So thank you again for your reply, and again, I’m sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable or put on the spot by my post. It wasn’t my intention. ::offers you a cup of tea and a hug::
