If you grew up a gothy, punky alt-kid like me, then October might just be your favourite month of the year.  As of October 1st it becomes socially acceptable to dress head-to-toe in spooky prints, rock those Vampira brows, and team purple and orange along with all that black.  Not to say you’re not welcome to dress like that every day of the year, cos of course you are (you do you, babe!), but once the calendar page flips to October, all the closet Halloween-o-philes come crawling out of the woodwork too.

If you know me, you know I love a novelty skirt (Watermelon, Lime, Samara Skater or the comic-inspired Heartbreak Wiggle Skirt anyone?), and this October I had the designer-desire to create a novelty skirt specifically for our spooky sisters.  Gals who grew up reading R.L.Stine, watching The Craft, and collecting Living Dead Dolls.  Gals who love Tiger Army, Cradle of Filth and Manson.  Designed exclusively for the dark dames amongst us, let me introduce The Black Widow Skirt.

This new design is so flattering and classic in its style that it doesn’t have to be hung up when October ends.  No siree!  This full circle skirt, with its elegant spider-web top-stitching in contrasting white, is perfect for gals who live an everyday alt-lifestyle.  Gals who love horror movies and dark comics, and whose wardrobes consist of black-upon-black-upon-black.   The style of the skirt is still pretty and fun, despite its dark theme.

Oh and did I mention POCKETS??  We can all agree that pockets in a skirt or dress are a godsend, and so, The Black Widow Skirt had to have them!

This skirt is perfect for Pinups, Gothic Lolitas, Baby Bats and Psychobilly Bellas a-like.  So, if The Black Widow Skirt has ignited a dark desire in your soul, you can find it creeping out the bright Freshly Squeezed range in my webstore.
