Once in a while I stumble across something that despite my better judgement I find myself needing. This unicorn clutch is one of those things. It’s childish & verging on tacky, it barely fits my phone inside, is super impractical & it’s not even real leather – but I love her, in all her cheap pleather glory, my little gothicorn.

I’m always finding myself drawn to things that evoke a sense of nostalgia and I was obsessed with My Little Ponies when I was young, so it’s no surprise this turned me into a squealy 5 year old again (complete with making it gallop across the floor & neigh at my friends…) when it arrived! Being all black it blends in with my outfits nicely, without looking out of place & I love how it adds a cute, playful edge to what would otherwise be quite a moody outfit. I really do wish it had of been made from a nice textured leather instead though.

Another thing leaving me feeling nostalgic is this ‘name’ necklace. I could never find my name on any when I was younger, and maybe I’m still a bit annoyed about that, as I’m not the biggest fan of them now. I do love to adorn my body with writing though, all 3 of my next planned tattoos are written quotes, so when ONecklace asked if I’d like to try one of their necklaces I knew exactly what I wanted. I think ‘breathe’ is such a beautiful word and as someone who suffers with a little anxiety I find it’s a great word to keep constantly in mind. I love how delicate the script on this one is, and how it falls at that perfect length too. It’s quite subtle, and I can see it getting a lot of everyday use.

    Ah trust you to find a black unicorn ;)
    The necklace is cute. Breathe is definitely better than a name :)

    OMG, that bag is super cute and also I am in love with the rest of your outfit. Like I have said it before you rock all black like no other. Thank you for the inspiration.

    black, understated, ponytastic, will make people look twice when they see how ‘serious’ your black outfit is. love humour in fashion ;)

    That’s such a lovely necklace! I can see why you love that clutch, it’s super adorable! When something is this cute who needs practicality xxx

      Exactly! It was kinda nice to not be lugging a huge bag around with me too, for a change!

    I love everything about this look. And I mean EVERYTHING! You look fierce!

    I love your unicorn bag, it’s so cute. Super cute necklace too, much cooler than a name one.

    MUST come up to see this gothicorn, will you show me how it gallops? That bit so made me laugh– don`t EVER grow up our Steph. xx

    Steph, I can see why you NEEDED that clutch – it’s perfect. Whimsical, yet all importantly, black. Looks great, as do you! xx

    I am so in love with this look and you are so right about the bag adding a cute and fun element to the look, it’s adorable :) xx

    Ahhh that Unicorn is just too cute, love it! Love the necklace too!

  12. Posted 28.09.2013 at 7:32 pm | Permalink

    Aha! it IS a little gothicorn! Cute, dark. I have similar feelings towards Hello Kitty Chococat. I didn’t exactly grow up with Hello Kitty, though, so I really have no excuse except there’s that inner child thing.. ;)

    • Posted 30.09.2013 at 12:33 pm | Permalink

      Yes! I love Hello Kitty too, I used to have a little Chococat plush! I have such a soft spot for cute, childish things like that… I think I will always just be a big kid inside ;)

    Oh my ! I need that clutch so badly ! *o*

    That bag is adorable <3 You look beautiful Steph!!!!

    I love your gothicorn! And I totally relate to falling for cute/geeky things and then just wearing them with full goth regalia, because really, why not?

    Good idea with the necklace too – I don’t love the idea of advertising my name around my neck, but a meaningful word is a totally different story.

    • Posted 30.09.2013 at 12:38 pm | Permalink

      Exactly! The older I’ve got the more I’ve embraced my geekyness, so it seems fitting to incorporate it into my outfits a little too! ;)
      And yes, I hate the thought of complete strangers reading something like that & knowing my name, it kind of creeps me out!

    This outfit is brilliant, I LOVE that clutch!

    love your unicorn bag. it’s so adorable! =)

    this is super cute steph – i have a thing for horses (and unicorns!) and this is such a unique clutch. sucks about the pleather but you can probably make a leather version later on? loving the ‘breathe’ name plate too. definitely a much better (and shorter) word than stephanie. still really love that cropped todd lynn piece on you! x

    • Posted 30.09.2013 at 12:41 pm | Permalink

      Glad it’s not just me that’s a leather snob! ;) Yeah, I think when I get my hands on some thicker leather I may trace this one off & make a leather version, maybe give it a real hair mane & tail too with some hair extensions! Ha! :D

    I was also obsessed with MLP’s, I had the castle which I adored haha. I was never in barbies, it was all about the ponies for me. It really is impractical but I also love mine, it reminds me of the good ole days. ;) The necklace is also really sweet, I love wearing jewellery that has a special meaning/memory attached to it. <3

    Oh my, I think I’m in love with your clutch!

    Steph, I think the unicorn bag is a great pick: it gives a playful touch to the look, but the black leather is perfectly in tune with your style! When it comes to small bags/pouches, I’m also drawn to unusual design and I can proudly say that I have a rabbit-shaped and a duck-shaped mini-bags…you are not alone! Take care, Caterina
