Are you sitting down? Good. This may come as a bit of a shock… but I was never a teen goth. I know, I know! Between my uber pale skin, perpetual RBF, and penchant for wearing all black, I certainly seem like a shoe-in for Little Miss Teenage Non-Conformist, don’t I? Alas, I’ve always preferred metallics over Metallica, so in reality, my rebellious stage was marked by a pseudo-punk phase that basically meant wearing the same pair of checkered Vans and studded belt from Hot Topic every day. A little part of me always admired the true emo/punk/goths though- the edgy haircuts, the unnatural hair colors, the intense makeup?! I’d be lying if I said a little part of me didn’t secretly still want an asymmetrical bob (a la Olivia Wilde in that Tron reboot/sequel/ill advised financial decision) in some magical unicorn color. But, I’ve met me and I’ve met the krakken on top of my head, so I think I’ll settle with channeling my inner summertime goth and rocking a black lip every now and then. #SoHighFashion #MuchCouture
