Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 

Another year! Life flies by. I've been enjoying reading your "looking back" on 2014 posts. Seems like an exciting year for all of you. Like last year, I randomly drew a tarot card for this year. The year 2015 is the year of "The Lovers"
the tarot card is from the Running Press deck, drawn by Julie of my favorite decks. I've surrounded the card with my wedding ring, my engagement ring, and a pearl/diamond necklace that's been worn in weddings for 4 generations. The magnifying glass necklace was a wedding anniversary gift from my husband.
The Lovers card is pretty obvious. It signifies love, relationships, desire. It's a positive card. So this year, remember that there's someone who loves you. It may or may not be a family member or a significant other. Your friends also love you in their own way. Even the people you work with--after all, nothing could get done unless there's some kind of mutual respect between you and your coworkers. In business texts they call these "working relationships" since, after all, they are relationships. Your friends online also care about you--at most, they care deeply about you personally and stay up worrying. At the very least, your posts lighten up that person's day and provide some escape. They inspire.

No one exists in a vacuum, people can't unsee you or unhear what you've said. You matter and your actions tie you to other humans. So let's love one another, yes?

SORRY ABOUT THE SAPPY STUFF. I got a sappy card this year! It's gonna be a sappy year.

Does the lovers card relate to you?

Trend Predictions: 2015

Following last year's dark fashion predictions, here are my trend predictions for 2015, and with a brief note if my 2014 trend predictions came true this year! Overall I think it's going to be a more toned-down look next year.

Goth Trend: I kinda feel the stereotypical "nu-goth" look with the over-the-top satanic panic symbols and big occult stuff will kind of die down to a more old-school goth look (except with 90s hair), meaning a more hair-makeup look with normal, trendy street clothes (in black). Goth brand clothes will continue to take a hit as people stop at regular shops.
 (Last year: Said the nugoth look was going to win over pastel goth. yeah, I'd say so. In real life, I've seen way more nugoth people than pastel goth. and online as well)

Trend Recap 2014

And now the year's almost over! Flew by, right? Miss the flower crowns and crosses? Satisfy your nostalgia by heading over to my Trend Recap 2013. Here's the Trend Reap for 2014.

Favorite Trend that Probably Won't Continue in 2015: Moons
(moons are the best. I want to get more moon things before the trend goes)

Lingerie Trend: Strappy stuff that kind of looks like the harness trend
(Finally! bra straps that are aren't stupid looking and can be worn with open dresses)

Long Hair Wants/Goals

Sorry guys...a pretty intense 2 weeks at the office. I haven't been dressing too goth lately, mostly because my hair is just so lame. It's its natural color (dark brown) and is just growing out. No style at all. I wear a lot of vivid dresses with a lot of pattern to them so I don't look too boring. (I wear this dress like every day)

You have no idea how much I want to wear my hair in braids. Loose braids, french braids, waterfall braids, fishtails...all of em.
