#gothtomom Gift Guide

So I have many elements to my life that inform my purchases. I am (very) plus size. I am a mom of 2 small children. I am interested in counter culture style and art. These factors often fight with each other and make shopping for myself challenging.  With the holidays coming, gift giving is fresh on everyone's mind, so I carved out some time to come up with a list of incredibly cool products to buy for the goth mom in your life...even if that mom is you!  All clothing comes in standard to plus size, so this guide is for every body! *This post contains affiliate links*

This is Halloween



This Halloween the family dressed up as characters from Nightmare Before Christmas. I was Oogie Boogie, Remy was Jack Skellington, Zara was Zero, and my husband Joe was Barrel (one of the trick or treaters).  I based my costume around this Amazon dress (super comfy, btw...I will be getting one in black!) and Joe's around these jammies.  The girl's outfits are all detailed on my kid's fashion blog, the Witching Hour Baby.  We had so much fun this October and I am already awaiting next year!

The Rogue + The Wolf

I first became acquainted with The Rogue + The Wolf when they were solely a jewelry company who sold witchy rings and necklaces.  Recently, I noticed that they had expanded to clothing, but as a per usual, the sizes stopped at XL. Cue to just a little while later: they announce that they now offer up to size 3X!  Alternative plus size clothing is a market that absurdly underserved, leaving most customers to DIY and pick the black options from mainstream stores. Hell, I even have a Pinterest styling board where I do just that.  It is refreshing to be able to shop at a speciality store dedicated to an aesthetic.  Here are my favorite selections from their current offerings.

Spring . Revamp

Full disclosure: while I still immerse myself in style and fashion on the daily, I am a mother of 2 very small children.  I live in this ASOS Swing Tank Dress and a high bun…very little make up. Living in So-Cal, I can even go days on end without putting on shoes. However, both of my girls are walking and talking and gaining independence each day. I am beginning to feel like I can slap on a lipstick and take them out, so I am trying to update my wardrobe with easy pieces that add oomph without much fuss.  Here is my current wish list for a spring upgrade!
