Medieval Times

January 30th, 2009

This entire entry probably has to do with sitting around the house too much reading the boyfriend’s S.M Stirling collection, or maybe it’s just Beyonce’s armored glove, but it seems to me that I’m seeing a lot of King Arthur’s influence in fashion lately.  Although it hasn’t gone as medieval on us all as it […]

Think You’re Emo Enough?

January 29th, 2009

So much of Gothic Fashion is dependent on reminiscing on the past.  We have our Victorian, Steampunk (the brown Victorian goth), our Ren Faire, the ’80s…  Well, what about the future?  Sure, there’s Cyber Punk, but really, that’s about it.  This might not necessarily be “Goth”, but frankly, it’s too weird and cool to pass up.   […]

Happy 200th Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe!

January 19th, 2009

Edgar Allan Poe turns 200 today, so Haute Macabre would like to wish this icon a very Haute Bicentennial.  Poe was born Edgar Poe in 1809, and was soon after abandoned by his father and orphaned by his mother.  The Allan family took him in, and gave him his middle name.  After the estrangement of […]

80’s Explosion

January 16th, 2009

Time to break out those old Siouxsie albums, kids, because today, we have discovered a 80’s Gotho treasure.  Welcome to Lullie Vintage’s Ebay Store, where once you’ve sorted through all the frightening hipster comeback items, you find the hidden world of forgotten cocktail dresses.  Best of all, the prices are dirt cheap – I think […]
