Clearly this post is about chains, given the title, and you might wonder why I've selected this as today's topic. Well, it just so happens on a previous outing that I purchased a few yards of chain. It was on super sale and I just couldn't resist it! The problem; I don't know what to do with it. It would seem that the most common use for chains in Goth fashion occur in designs for corsets, pants and jackets. Some uncommon approaches are embellishments on boleros, skirts, and accessories. I don't know which is more appealing. I'm not terribly fond of having chains on my pants because I used to get caught on park benches and stair railings, which would result in ripping my pants apart or destroying the chain completely. I don't mind having chains as an embellishment, but I'm not sure how much is too much, or too little; I don't want my garments looking cheesy.
What are your thoughts on chains? Do you have any inspirational photos you'd like to share with me?
