Lately the weather in Paris has been quite awful and I have been in a somewhat "dark" mood as well because of this!
Thus the idiotic reason why I am moving on with the introduction of the Gothic fashion section. Let's leave all the sweet things behind us for now!!
If you're a tourist in Paris and you're into rock and punk fashion, the "rue Keller" (Keller street) I was talking about in one of my first posts (read here) is a major place you have to visit in my opinion!
There are mangas, anime DVDs, cosplay, lolita fashion and even gothic fashion all renited in one place, what else can you hope for???
Going on with my introduction of the Black Sugar shop (which happens to sell items from all the aforementioned categories!), I have to say there are really many interesting items to be found there!
A personal favorite of mine when it comes to gothic/rock accessories are these fun things, the tattoo sleeves!
|Tattoo sleeves collection! |
|'Tiger and Flames sleeves'|
Those are awesome right??? For a scaredy cat like me when it comes to needles, this is simply perfect! Those are sold in pairs for 15€. People have to double check to make sure these aren't real because it looks seamless and really blends with the skin tone. The overall effet is really awesome especially when you wear it like in the picture with a leather bracelet and a T-shirt with the right sleeve length!
By the way, speaking of leather bracelet, you can find many fun models at Black Sugar as well^^
|Single buckle leather bracelet! (also available with 2 and 3 buckles)|
|Another studded bracelet! |
Those are my three favorite but there are various other models available as well! (those can be found here)
And that is just the tip of the iceberg! As usual there is a large range of choice especially when you take a look at the gothic section jewelry~
|Skull ring with green rhinestones|
|Toothy Mouth ring (you can actually open/close it)|
|Leather rings sold in pairs|
|Necklace with Ankh pendant|
|Bat with unfolded wings pendant|
...Ok the cat is not really "gothic" but it's sooo cute I had to add it and one day cats will rule!
Anyway, bracelets/wristbands, rings, necklaces and earrings, you can find anything you need to grow your collection of fun/unusual accessories during your stay in Paris!
Most of those are priced between 5 and 10-12€, the most "expensive" items being the leather bracelets.
Aaaand that's it for the gothic-like accessories! I will be talking about the clothes and the shoes next time I think!
See you around~
