Year in Review 2011

I know things have been slow at Goth Girl of the Week, but until recently I just wasn't getting the interviews in. I have two I'm working on right now, but I'm going to hold them till the new year.

The last part of the year was a little slow, but we did manage to Feature 19 Goth Girl of the Weeks. Six were from North America and 10 from Europe. We seem to have broken the excessive number of North Carolina models from previous years, maybe I've just interviewed them all.

Visits per month are down slightly to 10,880 from a last year's 10,900. I think it has to do with me getting fewer interviews up this year. We've increased subscribers to 369, up 150 from last year.

Now that Google has Google Plus and there are now Google Plus Pages, I have created a Goth Girl of the Week Google Plus Page. This is where we are going to take public votes this year for Goth Girl of the Year. So sign in to your G+ and follow GGotW+, look for the GGotY 2011 post and read the rules carefully.


No one seems to want to use the Google Plus voting option, so I'll let the public vote with the app at the bottom of the page, but it will not count towards GGotY. Public voting will end on Januarty 15th.

As in past years, the girls will vote, as will my assistants and I. The final result will be revealed as Goth Girl of the Year 2011 in January.

Below is a review of all 19 girls from this year. Take a look over them , click their links to read their interviews and use the G+ Page to cast your vote. Feel free to leave comments too.

If you want to have a chance at being Goth Girl of the Year 2012, send me your submission. I'll conduct an interview with you by e-mail and you too could be a Goth Girl of the Week.

The Outnet

Just wanted to share a fun little video we filmed for The Outnet back in October where I styled a "Boy Meets Girl" look using clothing from their online boutique...

I know I know, lame photo pose and a very interesting way of accentuating certain words throughout the video... just let it be.

My Diesel x Grazia shoot


So here it is! My shoot I did with Diesel for Grazia, that's out in this weeks issue. It was such a great experience working with the whole team, I truly enjoyed the day as I was given free hands on the styling and overall look.

What do you guys think? my favorite photo is the first one, funny enough that is was a test shot and first photo of the day. Luck....? No, good teamwork.

Thanks goes to the whole Diesel and Grazia team, it was a pleasure working with you all!

The brand new Diesel



With a brand new design team lead by Finnish Heikki Salonen, Diesel is doing an amazing job revamping not just the designs but whole image. I took part in a little challenge to style my favorite Diesel looks, see the outcome in a whopping three page spread in tomorrows Grazia magazine!

I love a great vintage find and this coat is the epitome of just that. Found at my favorite vintage store, The Fine Art of Design, out in Palm Desert. Absolutely worth the trip, especially if you're already out there for Coachella.
Did I mention this coat came with a matching 60's shift dress?
Impeccably preserved by, what I'm assuming could only be, a feverishly stylish old lady with a love for for mini skirts.

The attraction of the ugliness

A bit of a continuation from yesterdays post.. although I'm in total basics, reeeeally excited about the shoes. They simply are the solution to wearing a manly brogue without wearing flats. I've only seen acne and simone rocha do it right. When these first came out I said it's one of the ugliest shoes I've seen in a long time. I guess there is always the attraction in the things you can not get or the ones you publicly state that you hate. Me and my fugly shoes are now very happy together.
