Gorgeously Gothic

I love the Deadly Darling Couture Mourning Arm Cuff by Black Orchid Designs ( It's made out of canvas, cotton distressed ruffles, satin wide ribbon ruffles, vintage lace, and has a skull cameo framed in satin ruffles. It also has 3 vintage buttons and elastic loops. I recommend viewing the pictures on Etsy to see just how lovely the details are. The cuff is selling for $40, and is best suited for size medium or large arms. See the Etsy description for measurements.

Black Raven Vintage is selling these 1980's vintage Victorian black suede granny boots on Etsy for $65 ( They're size 8 (Women's)/38.5 (EUR). Black Raven Vintage offers many other 1940's - 1980's items as well.

I love this vintage black velvet formal jacket! taradactyl is selling the jacket for $13 on Assembly, her Etsy store ( It's labeled as a size small on the tag, and fits like a small/medium. The lace dress is also available in her store along with other great items. Click here for the dress:

taradactyl is also selling this lovely corset top for $6 ( It's labeled as a size medium on the tag, but it fits like a small/medium.

GoodEye is selling this vintage black velvet bustier from the 1980's for $36 on Etsy ( The detailing is breathtakingly beautiful. I recommend viewing the other photos of it on Etsy. The back of the bustier is lovely too! The size is listed as 6, and the bust is 32 inches (see the Etsy page for more info).

This long black trachten skirt was made in Austria, and is made of heavy black velvet. Biretu is selling it for $24 on Etsy ( It would fit a size small best (or small-medium), but see the Etsy page for measurements. You don't see stunning items like this every day!

What a beautiful Victorian style vintage blouse! It has never been worn and still has its hang tags attached. The size is approximately 8-10. Vintage Melody is selling the blouse for $35 on Etsy (

This 1980's vintage black lace corset dress is spectacular and very feminine. Akasha Couture is selling for $45 on Etsy ( The size is listed as a medium, but the measurements are also given in the Etsy description. Like Vintage Melody's blouse, it also has never been worn.

This vintage Gunne Sax dress from the 1980's is absolutely stunning! I fell for it right away. I love the blue floral-patterned lace and the full skirt. Calico Vintage is selling this Victorian-inspired beauty on Etsy for $54 ( It would most likely fit someone who wears a modern size small, but it's listed as a size 9 (vintage sizing). The actual measurements are given in the description on Etsy.

Calico Vintage is also selling this beautiful 1980's vintage 1950's style black velveteen party dress for $35. It would most likely fit someone who wears a modern size XXS or XS, but the measurements are given on Etsy (it would be better to go by those). Click here:

123cabezas is selling this vintage black velveteen baby doll lace-up dress on Etsy for $20 ( The fabric's crushed velvet look is lovely. It's listed as a size large, but visit Etsy for the actual measurements.

This vintage sheer lace black and maroon jacket top is up for sale for $16 at Emporium of the Forgotten, a store on Etsy. Very feminine and Victorian-looking! The size is small to medium, but it could also fit other sizes. Go here for the listing:

It's definitely possible to be eco-friendly while still wearing black and dressing elegantly. Thanks for reading!
