Brass or White Bronze Crescent Moon Hair Fork, $72
Can you tell I’ve been spending too much time on Etsy lately? I kinda wish I had hair right now, because I adore Almanac For June‘s Crescent Moon Hair Fork. But I don’t think this little mess-hawk I’ve got going is will support it. Sadness…
Perfect for Halloween decorating, and lovely the rest of the year as well…
Be still, my heart, Adele Mildred has stolen you with her flurries of wings, magical rabbits, and waist-cinched ladies.
Handcrafted from 100% all-natural unscented beeswax, Grave Digger Candles are the new release by Cult of Weird’s Rob Reysen. The initial collection includes three original designs: a small skull, a toe-pincher coffin, and tapered spines molded from real human vertebrae.
Each candle comes with a tag with a Fun Dead Thing Fact, such as:
A Cemetery Gun was a device used to deter Grave-Robbers from disturbing the dead. It would be mounted at the foot of a fresh burial and triggered by trip wires, so “Resurrection Men” might find themselves in an early grave.
My tutorial plans for this week were thwarted by an angry eyelid and stern doctor’s orders to abstain from both my contact lenses and any makeup near my eyes, so instead here are some of my favorite things from the past few weeks! I’ve always loved these posts on people’s blogs and in their videos, so I thought I’d jump on that bandwagon.

Karolina Laskowska, a UK-based lingerie designer, offers a roundup of her favorite luxury undergarments to contrast last week’s more affordable options. These pieces may be woefully unattainable to most of us mortals, but are no less a feast for the eyes.
There are some truly exquisite lingerie confections being created at the more luxury end of the market: perfect for sashaying around your opulent, dusky mansion, whether it’s delicate lace or stark leather that takes your fancy.
Loveday London – Amora Contour Babydoll – £290
Butter-soft leather, exquisite French lace and silk tulle combine to make this dangerously seductive lingerie dress: I’d rather fancy myself as the ultimate femme fatale in this piece.
Coco De Mer – Seraphine half cup bra – £95
Graphic strapping has been on-trend for what seems like forever but I still love the softness that this beautiful corded lace brings to this look – consider it elegant bondage.
Ludique – Vicious Bodysuit – 249 EUR
I adore the contrast between the bold black mesh, harsh zigzag lacing and adorably delicate hints of Chantilly lace; I have a lot of love for pieces that include adjustable areas like the lacing in this style as it gives a lot of flexibility for non-standard body types.
Something Wicked – Ava half cup bra – £135
I don’t know what I love more about this bra: the wonderfully naughty peekaboo cut out or the delicious variance in textures between leather and suede.
Karolina Laskowska – Elzbieta playsuit – £90
Well, because who doesn’t want to have a pentagram emblazoning their backside? I must admit that a love of black metal may have been an influence in the design process, but also that this playsuit looks damn awesome under a sheer dress.
La Perla – Neoprene bodysuit – £1440
Who could have expected neoprene to work so exquisitely with a delicate floral lace? The mix of graphic blocking and barely-there tulle are utterly beautiful. Confining this bodysuit to underclothing would be a crime!
