HOW TO DRESS ACCORDING TO YOUR BODY SHAPE

Most important when dressing is that you feel comfortable in your clothes. You should express your personality and how you feel on that day too, however we would like to share a couple of tips on how to really rock in your outfit and turn heads every day.
There are four different women’s body shapes and you can easily determine which one outlines your own.
·         Banana or H Shape as some refer to as is when your shoulders and chest are almost in line with your hips and your waist size is not particularly emphasized. For example, if your chest and hips measure 90cm, your waist will be anything over 70cm. 
·         Apple body shape refers to much larger chest with waist and hips of similar ratio as Banana shape.
·         Pear body shape describes small chest and not so prominent waist with rather large hips.
·         Hourglass body type is very much explained in it’s name. That is having large chest and hips with small waist. Example: Chest and Hips – 90cm and waist 60cm or less.

Whatever your favorite style choice: Alternative, Grunge, Steampunk, Witchy Fashion, Pastel Goth or Vampire Fashion, to name just few of the trends by Wearable Tattoo fashion, you can follow the suggestions below and optimize your look easily.

TO CORSET OR NOT?

The Beginning

My corseting journey began about 6-7 years ago.

Let me get this straight from the beginning – I am not talking about wearing the so popular nowadays cincher or gym cinchers (even that some call them “corset”,  I find that inappropriate as a corset should contain steel bones,  in order to actually train your waist).

Bearing in mind I have always been fascinated with body modification, the idea of corseting consumed me and I reached out to learn more from the community of tight-lacers, researched French corsetieres and stumbled across the not so optimistic judgments of others.

Once I bought my first two corsets, I was completely fascinated with my so close to heart garments.

The Facts I Discovered.

I found out that one could not wear them 23/7 immediately. You should only wear a corset for 4-5 hours in a day for approximately ten days in order to “break it” or rather said to give it a chance to shape around your body. That is in order to extend the life of the precious expensive accessory as otherwise it  will tear in places under  the immediate prolonged initial strain.

The visible and immediate body reshaping as a result of putting on a corset  is addictive.

I felt more feminine and loved the immediate gratification effect!

At least for the first hour or two. Thereafter my  breathing was different, shallow and fast. Sleeping could only be done by laying on a side. Exercising, especially intense cardio I found  impossible.

Wearing a corset is a real lady’s style garment – you cannot lay back on a couch in front of a TV! In order to breath you have to sit up straight at all times. I cannot recommend anything better as a solution for improving bad posture!

YesI also found out that our modern fashion is certainly not designed around wearing a corset. It’s best to wear it over dresses, skirts, skinny jeans and tights with it making sure that all of those are really firm fit as belts under the corset are ”no-no”.

Do you have to wear lining? Absolutely! It will protect your skin from severe bruising, though you still might get minor marks especially if you have slim figure. I suggest using cotton tank top. It worked best for me.

Does corset wear really and permanently reduce your waist size? Unfortunately not (See German tightlacer calling herself Lacie: Laci Pin Up)! Unless you grow up in it and your ribs get reshaped during very young years, you will not be able to keep your achievement of waist size reduction for long after stopping to wear it.

The Outcome

Is it worth it to even start?

Oh yes, definitely! Nothing will transform your body like it unless you remove surgically a rib or two!

I must confess that nowadays I only wear my corsets on occasion and you won’t see me at a tight lacing competition though who knows, I might just change my mind and go for it!

MAGICK GRIMOIRE

What is a magick grimoire?

A grimoire is a journal of magick beliefs, understandings, spell trials and personal first hand practical experiences  written by a sorcerer himself.

The word grimoire originates from the  French grammaire meaning grammar which leads to words or a book of spells.

This is a very old practice taking us back to ancient Egypt and Hermes Trismegistus himself who is believed to have recorded his knowledge in scripts.

It is well accepted in the occult society for each sorcerer or sorceress to posses one of these books in order to keep track of their own journey and level of advancement within  their own spiritual development.

Many occultists include drawings, sigils and tables describing their studies in precise detail.

A grimoire may include divination techniques, scrying journey occurrences, magick spells, messages from different entities and conclusions.

STEAMPUNK

When I first came across Steampunk fashion, I immediately fell in love with its distinct look. I saw it as classy, sexy and fearless. That polished look of the Victorian era, spiced up by the great idealists and visionaries of those days, though still processed and delivered to us by our modern minds.
Then came the question:
 
Where does Steampunk originate?
 
Nostalgically inspired by the hunger for technology and innovation during Victorian England and American Wild West, Steampunk was  firstly mentioned in 1987 by K.W. Jeter, the author of the novel Morlock Night and thereafter in book called The Difference Engine by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling which was also born in the late 1980. That is where for the first time we come across with the idea of Steampunk.
Since then the idea of what could have been should  20th Century technology met the 19th century steam powered machinery have formed a science fiction genre which had shaped a sub-culture including Victorian clothing & futuristic technology.

As per the  Oxford Dictionary Steampunk is: “A genre of science fiction that has a historical setting and typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology.”


For those of you, hooked on the subject I would recommend some of the most amazing Steampunk reads I’ve come across:

  • The Affinity Bridge by George Mann
  • The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack(Burton & Swinburne Adventures) by Mark Hodder
  • The Martian Ambassador(Blackwood and Harrington) by Alan K Baker

 
Nowadays Steampunkers can be found all over the world. The fashion move is well known for their love in corsets, goggles and different mechanical look accessories.

HOW TO PULL OFF ALTERNATIVE FASHION FOR EVERY DAY AND OCCASION

If similarly to me you have a soft spot for alternative wear (you should though, if reading this article), you will often find yourself asking the question if this exceptionally stunning piece of jewelry in the shape of a coffin or those irresistible Lady Gaga’s videos’ inspired style shoes will fit in with my 9-5 office job or will be perceived by my child’s teachers or those nosy neighbors that some of us are lucky to have.

Well, my open minded fashion outlook started forming when I was 12-13 years of age meaning  I have had a lengthy experience of learning how to make it work.

There’s no need to starve yourself of what you actually really love and pretend to be somebody else. Of course you still have to somehow make it work thus you don’t have to chose between that amazing job opportunity and your inspiring fashion sense. 

First you have to make it become part of your style. You should consider yourself lucky as there are many people actually out there who haven’t got a clue of what their style is. Therefore if you always put a drop, just a drop of your alternative fashion style’s magic in the portion you will be considered by others as stylish. The outcome will be that instead of appearing extreme and weird to some you will rather leave lasting impression as an individual with a classy dark beautiful style.

Play with different options like wearing these rocking shoes and vintage look blouse with skinny office look trousers or pencil skirt.

Or what about Steampunk style boots and skirt? Just add a plain stylish blouse and no hair accessories. You will steal the day!

Or maybe add a corset with your new suit! You will be surprised how it will change the fit of your jacket! You will look simply polished!!

Hmm.. an Ankh pendant peeping through your blouse?..Or gothic choker? Stunning, stylish and classy!

Second – make sure your fashion sense is not offensive to any religious, racial or social groups. I would not suggest putting on those vampire look red contact lenses or Illuminaty enthused 4″ pendant at somebody’s funeral because you most probably will be left out of the will ;).

Third -very important! Wear what suits you! We are all born with our own unique body types and shapes so embrace it! Make a statement with the part of your body you love and dim others. If you love the way you look the odds are that others will too. If you dress in a way that makes people whisper “Wow! She (or he) looks stunning, she always does. And that big booty (or boobs, or nose or whatever) just suits her!”

So, embrace!

Fourth – do not be afraid of color! Believe me, I looove black though experience had thought me that color here and there does wonders!

For example a suede black dress with pastel green shoes and a matching necklace or earrings! Or maybe pink shoes? There are many possibilities when it comes to those touches of “something different” to your daily wardrobe.

Fifth – listen to your instinct and do not be stereotypical.

Many years ago I discovered that I love pearls and they suit me. I wear  them in between leather, fur and feather type textures. And yes, the old lady next door wears them too though she doesn’t wear the 5″ heals with them and her hair is short and permed 🙂 which for example places both styles (mine and hers) worlds apart.

Do not be pressured by today’s fashion either! Especially if it won’t work for you! Wearing you hair silver/grey might make you 15 years older, especially if you are anything older than 25 (there might be exceptions to this – just my thought in general)!

Sixth – be comfortable and practical. Don’t let yourself be fashion victim! Wearing high heels the whole day while standing might not be a good idea for you unless you are one of those strange creatures like myself who has forgotten how to and will refuse to wear flats. Or maybe putting on a long frilly gothic dress when going hiking unless you don’t care that you might lose half of it to being hooked onto bushes and branches.

Weekend? Go crazy! Anything your heart desires!

IS GRUNGE BACK?

In the early 90s, the grungy fashion look was born influencing millions of people all over the world. Fashion designers like Marc  Jacobs and Perry Ellis didn’t wait long to include and elevate it to a high fashion trend in their collections.

And of course those Doc Martin shoes! That was a must to have in order to complete the look!


Striped tops, colorfully printed dresses with denim jackets, round Steampunk meets John Lennon style sunglasses and oversized knitted hats! Since the 90s, grunge style had never seem to fade away and it had always had some kind of an influence with  the latest fashion trends. After all, who wouldn’t wear ripped jeans or denim jacket? However, it seems to me that nowadays the style had evolved into a more polished look than its actual original look in the early 90s.

Messy and cool, carefree look, that what grunge is.

Go for bright lipstick, dyed hair with over grown roots and generous dark eyeliner.

There you are! Ready to go!

BABA YAGA-THE EASTHERN SLAVIC WITCH

I can still clearly remember travelling in the car with my parents, on our way somewhere in a late autumn evening. The road was quite and without the disruption of other vehicles’ lights I could concentrate to the picture on my left – a deep, dark forest. I felt goose bumps. I just knew that I had to be good and listen to my parents or otherwise they would leave me there in the woods and I would end up in Baba Yaga’s cooking pot. My vivid imagination was running wild. I pictured some children locked up behind wooden bars and others screaming while becoming Baba Yaga’s meal.

My early childhood in Bulgaria was filled with the belief that she was out there, always watching and waiting to get hold of me. My fear was not only brought by the books with colorful illustrations or the almost natural reference to Baba Yaga by the grownups at home but rather by everybody I knew as we as children felt all the same about the old scary witch Baba Yaga.

It is a peculiar fact that most Eastern Slavic believes and superstitions are based in ancient pagan believes and strangely, even the communist regime at the time could not stop people from practicing their traditions, no they couldn’t, they just called them national historical customs.

So what does Baba Yaga look like in the eyes of a five year old? Allow me to first explain that baba in Bulgarian language means grandmother or the term can be applied for any elderly woman. Baba Yaga is old, her teeth are long and sharp and her hair is silver, wrapped in a scarf. She moves very quick and has the ability to fly on a broomstick. Another specific fact is that her house is alive and it stands on two huge chicken feet which enables Baba Yaga to run and relocate. For this reason nobody could say she lived in a particular enchanted forest but she could rather be anywhere and anytime.

Baba Yaga appears in many folklore books as well as in Mikhail V. Lomonosov‘s Rossiskaia Grammatika (Russian Grammer) written in 1755.

You can find her in art, fairy tails and even in Hollywood.

HARNESS BELT FASHION

There is a new fashion trend out there! The body harness.

It started in the beginning of 2019 with belts which extended to the upper leg as a garter and or choker style necklaces with long chains hanging over the breasts.

Shakira debuted in her latest super hot music video Chantaje wearing harness belt over shorts. This is another interesting point regarding this new trend – it’s worn over clothing as an accessory, almost like a different more alternative type of jewelry.

Now the variety had increased from just garters to full body suits completed by masks and similar face harness accessories.

Originally in black, now harnesses can be found in red, pink, tan or just about any color you can think of.

It compliments different styles of alternative clothing from Gothic to punk, grunge or simply sexy club or street wear.

Check out our recommendations on some of the most popular best sellers leather harness fashion accessories below or simply key in “harness” in search on our website.

VAMPIRE FASHION & COSPLAY

“I want you to believe…to believe in things that you cannot.” 
― Bram Stoker, Dracula

Since the birth of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, through the years and the various vampire theme Hollywood productions, it looks like we can never get enough. There is  something so sensual and nostalgic about the idea of a vampire’s kiss, their immortality and breathtaking vintage fashion.

They are typically exceptionally strong and fast, some possess specific supernatural powers and completely  take your breath away with their physical appeal. 

Vintage vampire fashion had always had place in the rock music of the 80s where the fashion met with long haired men, Gothic jewelry and deco.

In 2005 Stephenie Meyer launched her first book Twilight which was the first one of four consecutive books of The Twilight saga. It gathered enormous success amongst fans of various age, background and beliefs. The “modern” vampires were everywhere from t-shirts to fridge magnets and school cases.

That once again ignited the interest and  infatuation of the public in the immortal creatures.

Whether you are planning on your next Halloween costume or are just simply eccentric vampire fashion lover, you should not miss to take a look at some of our uniquely selected clothing and accessories items in our alternative store.

THE PENTAGRAM

Preface

Let’s imagine you are invisible, stuck onto the ceiling, looking down in a primary school classroom. The children are listening to of the their teacher and while doing so, many are scribbling randomly in their books. Most of them have concentrated on the lesson and the drawing motion is almost automatic with no intentional thought behind it. Some are just drawing lines or cubes, others circles…and then – one of the pupils have drawn a pentagram! And then there’s another, sitting in the opposite side of classroom!

Ok, what about moving location? Let’s visit a boardroom full of adults. They are all sitting down trying to absorb a new presentation. And once more, similar to what happened in the classroom – there is a person scribbling. In between the mambo-jumbo on the paper he had scribbled a pentagram.

What if we tried to place all those individuals in a social background where the pentagram didn’t exist? Let’s assume that they were all brought up without any previous exposure to the symbol.

So what about this urge or instinct? Where does it come from? What links them to the rest of us, who have consciously read or being told, or have seen a TV program about, or maybe just being exposed to the general social media? The answer is: we are all human! Our subconscious mind contains vast knowledge in symbology which is the foundation of our humanity. Some call it sacred geometry. The ancient Greek philosopher Plato called it the world of ideas – symbols (the true world), with the material one being only a vague reflection of what should really be.

The pentagram is one of the basic spiritual symbols which reside in everybody’s mind.

In antiquity , the pentagram symbol can be found in ancient Egypt, depicting Sirius, then in Rome and Persia throughout the whole Byzantine era you will find it almost everywhere.  It will be spotted in many pegan traditions all over the globe too though that is a very detailed subject to go into.

It is also important to add that the  Freemasonary describes the pentagram as the most important Pythagorean symbol  in sacred geometry.

What does the pentagram symbolize?

The pentagram symbolizes protection.

It is widely used in occult ceremonies as a cleansing ritual done prior to any magick work and also thereafter as a closing ceremony which banishes intrusive spirits back into their world and away from interference with the purpose of the actual spell. It is better known as LBRP (Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram).

Details on that can be found from various sources, however after extent research on the subject, I personally recommend Aliester Crawley’s Thelema. It includes fine details as well as LBRP in enochian angelic language which has been accepted as the base in the Golden Dawn’s teaching and traditions.  https://hermetic.com/crowley/libers/lib6

With its perfect geometry, the pentagram represents spirit over matter. It is often illustrated with Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. ” As within, so without.” Starting with bottom left point representing Earth, then upper left Air, Ether (or Spirit) on top, top right – Water and bottom right – Fire.

Having mentioned all above, the pentagram is a protective symbol which when worn will not only be aesthetically pleasing with its perfect geometrical shape but rather be providing an invisible shield against external negative energies.
