Trend: Chain Necklaces

You know what I haven't worn in over 20 years? Chain necklaces. I don't mean dainty chains--I mean the industrial ones you would get at a hardware store. When worn with a spiked collar (like in the above Widow photo), it was a pretty badass look in the late 90s, early 00s. I'm liking it with the updated hair and makeup in the photo above. Though I won't hate it with the choppy highlights and panda eyes of the 00s.

When you're tired of all your clothes

If you've ever looked at your closet and thought, "I have nothing to wear!" or if you find yourself hating how you look, that you don't have a sense of style anymore, that you lost your passion for fashion, or you just hate everything new coming out and wonder what's wrong with you, this post is for you.
I would never wear this again--I sold or donated everything

Wearable Cyberpunk

I am DYING for Cyberpunk 2077 to come out and with day 60+ of wearing masks and having digital dance parties, I mean, the cyberpunk apocalypse is upon us. I mean, I thought I'd be wearing light-up masks and not an n95 I bought at the hardware store.
cyberdog--also don't wear this mask for Covid--look at those holes.

The Biggest Balloon Sleeve

I'm not buying anything online due to the virus, but one day, when this is all over....

Currently, I am on the hunt for the biggest balloon sleeve (I've also seen them called "bishop sleeves"). They've come in and out of style the last few years, but all of the ones I've seen in stores (during the before time) are wimpy and itsy-bitsy. What I'm basically looking for is two skirts on my arms. This is a beautiful dress but the sleeves are not big enough:

Gorgeous dress by Vampire's Wife, knocked off by goth brands in 3...2...

 This blouse at Nasty Gal is almost big enough, but I hate this fabric. I can feel how scratchy this is just by looking at it.

Don't Buy Satanic T-Shirts from Goth Brands

You've seen the T-shirts of Baphomet, inverted pentagram, and other Satanic imagery on T-shirts. Sure, they are cool. But it's more fashionable to support the Satanic Temple, an activist religious organization (and, yes, it is a real religion) based out of Salem, MA. 

In the US, the Christian Right is successfully limiting the reproductive rights of women and fighting back against LGBT groups, and all religious groups that are not Christian, including nonreligious groups. The only effective group fighting back against the Christian Right is the Satanic Temple. Read about their progressive campaigns here

If you're an atheist like I am, this religious group is the only one fighting for your right to be free from religion, so support the cause instead lining some gothic fashion brand's pockets. I've got a few of the Satanic Temple T-shirts and they are great quality, plus the illustrations from Luciana Nedelea are stunning. Get the shirts from the official shop:
