Electric Fox

These shot are from when my love and I went to the laundromat earlier this spring. I was going for a minimal French girl kind of look and I think I did well. It was fun to shoo with that cart and I also got some decent shots of my engagement ring for once, so I feel pretty awesome about that. The bottom photo is of a couple of cute (and stylish) little girls we ended up chatting with there. It was so fun. :)

Next month, I will turn 21 and will have been with my love for three years. I can’t really think of a lot of things I want, but I did make him this short list. In exception to the top image, none of the images posted here belong to me. They all belong to their respective sources, which I have linked.

1. A Dead Kennedys shirt: Any Dead Kennedys shirt (but preferably a men’s size medium), since I just recently realized I don’t have one.

2. Dead Kennedys’ “Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death”: I keep listening to this album on Youtube and it has a lot of my old favorites on it. Can you tell I am majorly feeling DK right now? ($12): http://www.deepdiscount.com/cd/Give-Me-Convenience-or-Give-Me-Death

3. A Spoonflower Giftcard: I know that I have yet to post any of my fabric designs yet, since my collection isn’t done yet. But, I would really like to have some money there when I do get done, so I can justify buying custom fabric: https://www.spoonflower.com/gift_certificates/new

4. Tiny Gold Fox Pendant: I have been eyeballing this tiny fox pendant for a while and I would really love to have a gold piece that goes with my lovely engagement ring. ($31): https://www.etsy.com/listing/174984037/gold-fox-necklace-tiny-fox-necklace-14k?ref=favs_view_8

5. Unicorn Ring: Unicorns are a romantic symbol and I would love to have a unicorn ring to match my unicorn necklace. This one has that lovely vaguely Medieval look that I have been searching for.

Here is a much more spring appropriate outfit with that super cute eyelet skirt. I love the color and it’s lightness. I also love that top I have on here; I didn’t get a chance to wear it last summer, which made me sad because I love it. As you can see, the top photo is my new avatar, because I just love it and I feel like it is so pretty.

I am also pleased to announce that we are beginning to offer custom clothing in our Etsy shop, starting with some of my best pieces as samples. This is my last winter outfit of the season and showcases one of our new made to order pieces: that super cute mint eyelet skirt. I show it with tights here and it looks even better with bare legs (more on that tomorrow).

Also, that tree at my school is awesome. I feel like a Sab in that bottom right shot. ;)

I am pleased to unveil the newest addition to our line of affordable doll accessories: jewelry! My long time readers know how much I devotedly love jewelry, so it was only a matter of time before I figured out how to create some for my girls. The necklaces are crystal or charms recycled from old drop earrings and the rings feature real Swarovski crystals. They were so fun to shoot and I love those sexy pictures of Tori and Apple together. These jewels would be so fun to dress up any of the Monster High or Ever After girls. :)

We have them offered as a single ring, single necklace, necklace and ring set or a package deal with a dress. As always, we are happy to create a custom piece for anyone who asks.

Hello friends! This is my etsy store, where I put my leather goods I deem worthy of purchase by others. I take all manner of commissions or variations. If any of you are interested in buying something, or just have questions, my inbox is always open.

This is my love’s Etsy store with his beautiful leatherwork. You should check it out.

It’s already past time to retire my velvet, which always makes me a little sad, so here are my last two velvet outfits of the season. The red one is clearly from when it was colder and features heavier pieces. The black one is fairly recent; my mom recently bought me that beautiful little dress and I didn’t know what to do with it, so I when with Pif-inspired(see yesterday’s essay).

Pif (An Essay)

I met Pif in the eighth grade, on the first day of school. She looked cool, so I had to talk to her and because of that, we became friends… now, she is my oldest friend. She also became my biggest sartorial inspiration.

I was always the friend who had weird clothes and experimented too much with print and color (I probably still am). Pif was the friend with beautiful clothes that had incredible architecture. Everything she wore back then to school and still wears to this day, are the most wonderful architectural clothes. They are awe-inspiring and terrifying to me; if you were to take one tiny seam out of any of them, the whole garment would crumble. Because she is the only true goth girl I know, her clothes are all works of art to me and they need to be because of her commitment to monochrome. Her clothes, to me, are unattainably perfect, her commitment to black enviable.

But the real inspiration comes from how well her wardrobe reflects her inner loveliness, like a black iron rose… And it was seeing that which inspired me to let myself develop the style that I have, because in the end, anything can be beautiful if it reflects who you are. No one embodies that better than Pif.

As it warmed up, I tried my faux fur coat for a bit, since I am always so reluctant to let my winter coats go, but alas, I have admitted defeat. My mom saw that trippy tree at the university I go to and called it “a day lily tree”, so I had to go see it and take pictures of it.

I really wanted black tights that day, but all of mine were dirty, so I had to do black thigh-highs over blue ones. it actually looked cooler than I hoped and, as you can see in the top one, the blue got flashed as I moved, which is a totally rad effect. I recently made that brown shirt and I love it. I have a total fetish for 1970’s florals…but I have to hem the sleeves… they came out so long.

Where I live, it suddenly went from hot to cold. So, here is an outfit from back when it was cold. I’m a bit sad to have to retire my leather jacket for the season, but unlike a wool coat, there is no dragging it out by dressing in really skimpy clothes under it. This outfit had some color blocking with the skirt and tights that was inspired by the shoot on Valentine’s Day and I like the variation better than tone-on-tone for sure. We shoot these in a dressing room for the Hell of it and I love the effect of the reflection behind me.
