Skeleton Rocking Chair no cushion

The Skeleton Rocker: A Cozy Reminder of Our Mortality

Until this moment I had no idea that my house has been desperately missing a skeleton rocking chair. Modeled after a mid 19th century Russian chair, these beautiful, elaborately hand-carved rockers were made in the US in the 20th century, most likely during the 1930s. With an estimated auction value of $2,500 to $3,5oo, this isn’t the most […]

Slow Holler Tarot Deck

Slow Holler Tarot Deck: Queer + Southern Artists Re-Imagine The Arcana

I’ll admit that tarot has never been one of my favorite mediums for art or divination, somewhat because divination as a whole gives me anxiety but mostly because the gender symbolism in the arcana has always felt incredibly constricting, a word I don’t particularly want to associate with my future. Thankfully, Slow Holler is here […]

Love, Courtney: Courtney Love x Nasty Gal Part II

Love, Courtney: Courtney Love x Nasty Gal Part II

This morning’s Haute List reminded me of the holiday collection collaboration between Courtney Love and Nasty Gal, “Love, Courtney”, released this past November. Mixing a Courtney’s signature 90s Kinderwhore with some of her later glam (and maybe a bit of Stevie Nicks boho-witch in there!), this second collaborative collection is appealing to me on every single […]
