Moving is on the horizon...

Moving is on the horizon, I have decided to clear up my closet (since I probably wont be able to keep everything anyway). And to summerize my different style directions I want to keep in it.

Yes I am a firm believer in "just wear whatever you want, don't think to much about labels" but I have many times found myself buying stuff that interest me in the stores and then I end up never wearing it.
Meaning that I like the clothes, but just as clothes, not as anything I actually feel comfortable in.

An example of this is my recent bend towards pastel accents in clothes. I was totally in love with a a lilac dress the other day and considered buying it. Then I went to town and got a pair of lilac stockings to quench some of my pastel urges.. And I ended up wearing them just once... And I didn't even feel that pretty/comfortable in them. So in the long run pastel is not for me, but I do apreciate how it looks on other people and in general.
Or for example that I have had a lot of skirts etc with great designs, but I never ended up wearing them because the fabrics was too plain. Black cotton that is ;P

Colours I shoulds keep in my closet:
  • Black (duh!)
  • Deep red.
  • Deep bue.
  • Deep green.
  • Deep purple.
  • Deep turqoise.
  • White - as accent, I rarely wear a lot of it.
  • Maybe a dab of grey.

Especially Avoid:
  • Pastel colours
  • Neon colours
  • Meh colours (too uninteresting)
  • Bright red... I just don't like how this one looks on me. 

I want my wardrobe to contain mainly of these fabrics:
  • Lace
  • Velvet
  • Mesh
  • Brocade
  • Pvc
  • Leather
  • Tulle
  • Satin
  • If cotton, text patterned, striped, dotted or otherwise a bit more "special"
  • Knitted net type

Introduction

Hello there, my name is Matilda, I am a biology student from Sweden. The style that would describe me and my music taste closest is Goth. Even so I take ainspiration from a lot of genres and styles, Gothic Lolita, Visual-Kei, Bohem, Vintage, Fashion and etc and it goes on.
The name MatildaMarbleEye just originatates from my obsession with eyes, I like drawing eyes and in my personal opinion looking into someones eyes for a long time feels more personal then seeing them naked. They are kind of like the mirror of the soul.
I came up with the name a long time ago, there is probably more to it, but I really liked how it sounds and I have kept it since ;)


I also use the name NaturesDarkPassion often, that name is actually inspired by a song from The Damned, the song is actually not my favorite but that name really sums up my whole being, I love nature, I love the dark side of things and I am very romantic ;)

This blog will be dedicated to style inspiration posts, philosophical thoughts about life, shopping hauls, poems, youtube videos and everything else I feel like putting in here ;)

I have a youtube channel as well where I rant about silly stuff and make videos about shopping hauls, feel free to check it out and subscribe ;)

I also have a tumblr where I dump stuff regularly, interesting pictures and tiny messages etc ;)


That is everything for the introduction, I suppose, see you around!
