My post about the Innocente Seraphim convention is up at the Lip Service Webzine! (You should know the drill by now, but that's a clicky-link.)
You peeps know about the tie-in Gothic Charm School merch that's available, right? The Rocklove Gothic Charm School Batty Heart Pendant
and Starborn Alchemy's Gothic Charm School Body Butter
(which smells like chocolate cupcakes!). I'm extremely happy to be working with such talented people. Follow those clicky-links, look at the pretty things! Better yet, buy the pretty things!
And to wrap up the shameless self-promotion part: hey, you should go buy the book! Available at book stores everywhere, and online retailers like Amazon
and Barnes and Noble
Oh, a quick review of the MAC event last night: Insanely
crowded, and the colors, while interesting, didn't excite me enough to make a purchase. After fleeing the crowds, Minim and I wandered over to Sephora, so she could look at nail polish. And so I could be recognized as the Lady of the Manners by one of the staff, hee! I was very flattered, and had a nice chat about Gothic Lolita and J-Rock with her and another of her co-workers. Also, curse you, Kat Von D! I don't want to purchase any of your makeup, but I think you may have made my perfect lipstick. (I got a sample to try. A color called "Homegirl"? Oh dear.)
Clicky-links of coveting! (Which are strictly of a window-shopping nature for me for a while, because I went into debt yesterday to purchase my long-coveted Fluevog Babycake boots. SO worth it, tho'.)The Gothic Corseted Military Jacket
from Retroscope Fashions.
I have a handful of garments from Retroscope (including a gorgeous custom jacket), and I've been delighted with all of them. Plus, I have a ... weakness, shall we say, for military-style jackets with lots of buttons.The Antoinette Mini Tricorn
from Hey Sailor. B&W stripes! Pink edging! A miniature pirate ship
perched on the crown! Oh lord, I have been slavering over this hat since last year. Yes, I know it's over the top. That's the point
.Dr. Marten's "Skelly" boot
. Yes, I just bought boots. But again, I've been pining after these for a while. Boots with glow-in-the-dark bones! How cute would these look laced up with pink ribbons, worn with knee-length fluffy skirts and severe jackets? Very cute. Gothic Victorian Sterling Ermine Skull Black Feather Fascinator Brooch from Loved To Death
. I constantly go back to Loved To Death's Etsy shop and whimper quietly and paw at the laptop screen. Why yes
, I would wear that on the lapel of all sorts of jackets. Pink and black striped ones, actually, for maximum sartorial impact.
