Arissa Ha

Met up with Dawn 2 weekends ago in Amsterdam and decided to be really brave and bring these new McQueen knockoffs from taobao out for a spin. They were bought a few months ago and I would really love to include the link here but it seems that it has already been taken off since the sellers are moving into Spring/summer wear right now. I’ve gotten so many compliments that day and even had a salesgirl from Bobbi Brown telling me how much she needed them in her life.

The lighting wasn’t great due to the gloomy weather but it did manage to produce some hauntingly eerie effect in some photos.

And for obvious reasons, that is why they have windmills in Netherlands. My complex geometries vest was flapping all over the place. It was hard to keep a straight face while the hood isn’t staying where it’s supposed to be.

It’s also the last time I’ll be travelling for a while. I haven’t been able to find anyone who shares the same aesthetics as much as Dawn does and it’s really sad that I won’t be seeing her for a while.

Black Outfit Breakdown:

  • Pants: H&M
  • Leather Jacket (worn inside): All Saints Datya Jacket
  • Vest: Complex Geometries A/W 2010
  • Gloves: Lanvin
  • Leather Tote bag: Taobao
  • McQueen replica boots: Taobao

    Hi Gwen,

    I’m a huge fan of game soundtracks (although most of those that I own are from Japanese games) and this piece is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing it. :)

    I never get tired looking thru your blog, and it just gets better and better! Your theme is just so “Haute Goth”, completely right up my alley. I especially adore this photo set and Dawn’s latest one. They’re the most haunting and picturesque shots taken. Love, love, love the moody ambiance, tone, and expression.

    I don’t often get to relate to people who share a strong passion for the colour black and this kind of style too, so please keep on inspiring us :)

    The second picture is gorgeous! I actually prefer to photograph in gloomy weather… I feel it hides my features and makes my eyes look brighter *^^*
