Embracing Gothic Chic

      image

It seems as if my parents constant health & safety concerns have now rubbed off on me and slowly but surely I am becoming the most scaredy-cat person in the world… I am not a complete freak, but I realized the other day when I tried to worm my way out of Christmas cheer ice skating for fear of loosing fingers and because “I was abroad and didn’t have my medical card”, that I was going to have to man up or risk missing out on some of life’s best adventures!So what better way to say goodbye to fear and comfort than to rock the gothic chic look! 🙂

My outfit is one inspired by some of my biggest fears and phobias and provides an edgy twist on the traditional goth look. It is often said that bad things exist in the world to make us appreciate the good ones, so I wanted to emphasize the happiness, joy and power that comes in overcoming demons with the bright yellow blazer and pink shoes. The medallion belt that I wore as a bracelet gave me a touch of warrior power and provided me with a way of turning a chain or shackle into a powerful attitude. I decided to accessorize with lots of bling rings and Geisha Nails to continue the eye catching look.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Since going on Tour I have proudly overcome my fear of flying and now I love it. I couldn’t even walk into a plane, so when I flew solo to China I really felt so proud of myself and elated 🙂 I still cross roads in an overly cautious manner, put my safety belt on in the car even when it isn’t moving, over cook chicken and walk home in the dark with the keys in my hands to slash my attacker in the face in case I get jumped… However I love climbing and don’t mind heights. I am not scarred of an adventure, foreign countries, crowds, going outside… So GO ME! What are your phobias and fears? How do you overcome them and what is your biggest achievement? Remember with phobias and fear, you are your worst enemy, you yourself are the one holding you back and if you put your mind to it, there is nothing that you can’t do or overcome  🙂

I am an ex-professional tennis player and have just graduated from King's College in London. I share daily fashion outfits and stories of my travels and the tour. Every story has a beginning, but I will start mine here, at the start of something big. For us this was a journey of a lifetime, where dreams were made and broken, where friendships were cherished and torn apart. We lived and still live the life of aspiration and we tell the tale of victories and defeats that come with growing up at such a young age on the brink of greatness and fame. In our world youth, beauty and riches combine. We trained hard but played even harder. Our parties’ were and always will be legendary, our travels exotic and carefree. We were becoming stars. My Girls On Tour showcases street style looks, avant-garde fashion, new designers, fashion shows as well as travel stories and adventures. A fun window into the glamorous world of a professional tennis player turned fashionista, this is the place for wonderlust and fashion inspiration.

    1. Thank you so much sweetie 🙂 So glad you like the look! I’ve had this chunky madallion belf for years and I thought it would look better a necklace or a bracelet because it dosen’t really hold anything up as a belt 😉 Glad you like it ❤ Abi xxx
