The Bustle Skirt at Whitby Goth Weekend

Eleanore my eldest daughter invited me to go to Whitby for the day during the recent Goth weekend.

Initially I was sceptical. I worried I'd look like mutton dressed as lamb, but she persuaded me that there were people of all ages who loved dressing up for the Goth weekends, and she assured me I'd love the stalls and the shopping.


off we went. 

I didn't regret it, she was right. There were people of all ages in the most wonderful costumes.

I did love the wares on sale too and bought myself a Deco style clock ...


wait for it...

a Top Hat!!!

Well I had to didn't I???  Eleanore and her friend both had on the most splendid top hats.

 Eleanore in her hat...

...and her friend Rachel in hers.

Don't the girls look amazing?
 Eleanore (the one in the blue) made the skirt that she wore. The picture really doesn't do it justice, it had three layers of gorgeous bustle at the back all trimmed with black lace, she looked amazing, as did her lovely friend.

Eleanore's boyfriend also accompanied us and Dave was dragged along as designated driver, but neither of them could be persuaded to dress for the occasion. They did both enjoy perusing the custom car show however.

You can make out Dave's reflection in this car as he takes the photograph.

And there's Stu, Eleanore's boyfriend in the background wearing the band hoodie and camo trousers.

They ended up in the pub, where we joined them after our little shopping expedition for a pint or three of real ale.

I really enjoyed the day out, so much so we are all planning on going again in April and I'm already planning my outfit.

  1. All three of you look utterly brilliant. I love Eleanore's blue skirt.
    I've seen an identical Cadbury purple Ford in Walsall, bet it's the same one. x

  2. How brilliant do you all look! Love the hats and the outfits are just stunning.

    Have been telling the other half that I would love to go one October, it looks really up my street. Don't know if I would be brave enough though to dress up. A few years back and there would be no stopping me!

  3. Absolutely fab!! You all look wonderful. I'd love to get dressed like that some time! Looks as though you all had a good time.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. You all look amazing. Even though I lived not too far from Whitby, it wasn't a place I visited often, but remember fish and chips!

  5. Terrific outfits you all look fantastic! I love the top hat look on you that will be an investment. Whitby is one of my favourite places I love wandering round there xx

  6. You all look amazing! I remember going to Whitby once whilst this weekend was on, I always wear a lot of black so fitted right in!
