If I were to wait for someone to ask, “oh, Sarah, won’t you divulge your bedtime routine and rituals to us?” Well, I imagine I would be waiting a very long time indeed because unfortunately, no one ever asks me those kinds of questions. But I do enjoy talking about all things bed and sleep and dream-related, so […]by S. Elizabeth
I had, for a time, sadly shelved the idea of a feature on digital collage artist Robin Isely, aka sliplead. I first mentioned this artist in my 2017 Needful Things roundup and I was immensely thrilled at the opportunity to connect with them for an interview, but unfortunately, their gorgeous Tumblr-hosted gallery–an obscurum of secrets, elusive […]by S.

I’m endlessly fascinated by naturally occurring places that are completely inhospitable to all or most forms of life. It’s one thing when humanity so thoroughly destroys an ecosystem that everything there dies – such things, at this point, still upset but no longer surprise me. But when it’s all up to nature herself, that’s…not a […]by Maika
If the winter has you feeling under the weather, perhaps a little medical attention is in order? Pratesi makes an Italian leather mini doctor’s bag purse that has an interior light- and a price tag of $342.00. The real deal will run you about half that- and doctor’s bags are made to last a lifetime. […]
SkinBag Corps. has presented us with something fantastically frightening. “SkinBag are autonomous seamless organisms in synthetic skin. Accessories and OuterWear in SkinBag become body extensions. SkinBag anticipates the fusion between the digital and the organic. Carrier of mutation, SkinBag symbolizes the ambivalence between the natural and the artificial, the instinctive and the optimisation. SkinBag is a relational tool offering […]
Oh Gentlemen, I hear your cries. I know how difficult it is to find your garbs. Everyone expects you to live in t-shirts and jeans, and because of that, t-shirts and jeans is all you ever find. You do not want cargo pants with too many straps, you want Couture, just like the more delicate half of […]
Leggings have quickly become a part of my regular wardrobe. They’re easy to layer, they look great with high boots and heels, and are easy to pair off with various tops or dresses. Perhaps they lean a bit over to the hipster realm, but really, all those emo kids have done is rip us off […]
Like so many of us I’ve been agonizing over finding the perfect pair of boots for the winter. After all, Angel City winters are more brutal than an outsider might expect! In fact, they become more difficult to tolerate the longer one stays here. Initially my heart was set on engineer boots. I’ll probably end […]
Paraphernalia just opened their official online Shop this past November, and it is full of magic. Each collection that I found is better than the last, including The Anatomica Collection (Heart Anatomica pictured above), The Wonderland Collection, full of Alice and her adventures, The Scientia Collection, and my favorite – The Menagerie Collection.
Skin Graft Designs, known for their top-quality Zombie-hunting apparel, has launched their online store at shophuntersandgatherers.com in combination with Kucoon, Angel Court, and several other designers. This is great news for those of you not near the handful of stores that carry their wares. Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse:
Interview Magazine’s September ’08 issue featured fashion creator Maison Martin and a collection of stocking faced models. “Twenty years ago, when Martin Margiela started his own womenswear label (his menswear arrived 10 years later), it was as though the Belgian designer counted the brain as part of the human figure. Ever since, the collections […]
I have begun making ritual sacrifices to the fashion gods on behalf of these spats. Cyana Boutique has six various styles currently, and each pair makes me want to strap them on, get the shotgun, and get a little more Road Warriorish than usual.
Every woman begs, borrows, steals, and prays for Agent Provocateur. Especially once we’ve seen the new Witches and Pirates collections. I think Santa only brings you pretty boxes from the good Agent if you’ve been very, very naughty though, so start racking up those bad girl points immediately.
Ashes and Empires has one of a kind, hand made spats and handbags on their Etsy site. Currently, they only have two available pair, but seeing as how they are individually hand-crafted and unique, I’m sure they will continue to update their listings as more become available.

Shu Uemura has presented us with Tokyo Lash Bar, a stunning collection of false eyelashes which are reasonably priced considering their intricate design. Price ranges from $18 – $95, and include collections of Natural, Fantasy, Premium, and a collection from Dutch designers Viktor & Rolf. Pictured to the left are the Black Gown lashes.

All Saints is my current obsession. I am absolutely in lust with 99% of their items, and couldn’t possibly list every one that strikes my fancy. I lay in bed at night dreaming of owning their entire line, and prancing about in their garments. They are a bit pricey, especially considering the U.S. Dollar to […]
I’ve been in lust with Alexander McQueen’s Samsonite Black Label luggage since it came out a couple of years ago, especially the “hero” ribcage suitcase. This year’s addition to the line adds a futuristic chrome version to the original ivory, charcoal grey, and classic black. Black: $775.00. Limited Edition Silver: $1500 Bargain of the Day: […]
From Designer Gas Masks : We are in a state of perpetual war – with ourselves and with the eco-system that sustains us. Perpetual war breeds perpetual fear. In the present context, this fear stems from our extreme desire for authenticity and manifests itself in our collectively insatiable culture of consumption. Deep down, we are […]
Japanese artist Fumie Sasabuchi has done her own renditions of published fashion images, primarily working in colored pencil and ballpoint pen over magazine pages. Personally, I find her deconstructed skin and skeleton phantom additions to be much more interesting than the original image. More examples of her visceral work after the jump.
These clever vampire fang cufflinks from Stephen Einhorn would be a great gift no matter what. Priced at $199 in sterling, $2,279 in white gold, or a paltry $15,735 in platinum, they are also available in several grades of yellow gold. But the really, really awesome thing about these is the gift wrap. When you […]
The runways have been overflowing this season with vampy-glam makeup: especially dark, lustrous, red lips. The look comes from layering a translucent black lip gloss over a vibrant red lipstick, and makeup companies are hustling to replicate it. Lancome had a waiting list when it released it’s Piha Black Lip Gloss in November- a sheer, […]
I’ve never been one for Anime, Sanrio, or any of the like, but I do have to admit, I am intrigued by this discovery. It seems that Hello Kitty has teamed up with our beloved M.A.C. Cosmetics for a limited edition collection due out in February, 2009. There will be two collections available: The […]
Haute Couture designer Comme des Garçon released a line for the wonderfully inexpensive department store H&M this past fall, which as been describes as “mostly black and with Japanese tomboy airs, the H&M collection includes a range of tailored jackets, many deconstructed, along with cropped pants, baggy shorts and a variety of skirts in stretch wool. On […]
Currently showing at New York’s Museum of Fashion Technology is a retrospective called “Gothic: Dark Glamour” featuring works by Alexander McQueen, John Galliano of Christian Dior, Anna Sui, Yohji Yamamoto, and a number of other designers less associated with all things overstated and black. The clothing is presented in tablaeux from labyrinths to laboratories, and […]
