Failed outfit shots

The stars have to be in perfect alignment for me to take an outfit shot. My apartment's got to be clean, I've got to not look stupid, it has to be during the sunniest day of the year otherwise my apartment is darker than a cave. I live in NYC so there's no private outdoor space for me to go to take an outfit shot (without nosy neighbors/tourists/etc bugging me)

Some of you have been posting old outfit posts that haven't made it up for whatever reason (didn't like the outfit, quality reasons, etc). I figured I'd share mine too.

The Goth Gym

Not far from former gutter punk hangout/current K-town annex St. Marks Place is David Barton Gym. We actually have a song we sing in our Peter Murphy voice when we walk by this place.





They just outgothed themselves and are opening a new location at an old church, the Limelight. If you aren't from NYC, you're probably wondering wtf kind of name is that for a church. This church used to be a nightclub (the Limelight), then a mall, and now it's going to be another David Barton Gym location. 


so awesome. Of course i can never afford a membership, but that would probably be the only way to get me to a gym...decor and a premium membership.

Children's clothes

Just a quick post from my phone as I'm walking down the street. Just had to share these adorable kids' outfits in the window display. Who ARE these kids? they are awesome.

Pantone Fall 2014 Colors

It's that time of year again, when I spend way too much time going through mainstream fashion's "it" colors. Here's fall 2014 (If you want to see my post on last year's fall 2013 colors, click here)... for those of you in the Southern hemisphere, you can see the newly announced spring 2015 colors here at the Pantone website.




When I first saw these, I thought Pantone was fucking with us by re-releasing spring colors, but I'm a fan after I made a few polyvore sets.

Favorite Makeup on the Web (and my signature look)

I very rarely wear any makeup. A lifetime of skin problems will do that. I also have the habit of wiping my eyes a lot, so forget about eye makeup. When I'm going out, I wear lipstick (did a blog post a while back...I only added a dark red/wine color to the collection since the post)

But I do like looking at makeup online. Here are  few of my favorites.

On instagram, I follow Dollfille. I met her at the BtSSB opening and was blown away by her makeup. They're colorful and her craft is amazing.

What's in my piercings?

Thought I'd do a quick post before I head to the eye doctor. I broke all of my glasses and now need a new ones and a new prescription. I'm pretty happy with what I'm wearing in my ears right now and wanted to share:

Left ear:
ugh my hair is growing out...

DIY: Crystal Necklace

Not too long ago, I did a post about the raw minerals trend and a few DIY ideas. I DIYed one based on some of the tutorials from the post and made things up as I went along. Lynoire from Space Unicorn also made a quartz necklace, so check hers out too!
finished
cool-shaped crystal (I got this quartz at a New Age bookstore for $12) and 3 pieces of thread (not 2 as pictured). The thread I used is string crochet cotton/nylon blend thread.

wrap strategically around the crystal's natural grooves

do the same with the other 2 strings
