What do we do when we’re sickly?

That’s right, peeps, it’s time for another episode of Auntie Jilli Is Horrified By What Is In The Goth Tag On Etsy!

Is this what the Kids Today <tm> mean by “Soft Grunge”? “90s pastel goth nu grunge raver" WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? And I *like* pink. But not that. 

Tropical Goth? I know lovely people who identify with that style. They would not be caught (un)dead in a bright yellow short sleeved shirt that says “Fun in the Sun!

1. This is not a corset, it’s a lightly-boned bustier. 2. Yellow. Yes, I’m biased against that color, but I have yet to see a Goth ensemble that really works with yellow. 3. Oh gracious, the tag spam “steampunk- goth- rocker- hipster- harajuku”. 

Acid. Washed. Denim. Dress. One of you be a love and bring your Auntie Jilli the laudanum, she feels an attack of the vapors coming on.  

I think I need to do a post of vintage gothy things from Etsy that I approve of, just to cleanse my brain after these things.
