Venus Fly Trap

I just realized that I haven't posted a clubwear outfit in forever!!! I guess I don't get out as much these days due to my shitty working hours. I got this dress from PinupGirl Clothing quite some time ago; I absolutely love everything about it! I don't usually like strapless dresses but this one has good boning in the chest area and I was planning on wearing it with a waist corset which holds up the dress quite nicely. I love the shape that the peplum creates with the corset, the wonderful colours, and the Venus fly trap print! I am endlessly fascinated by carnivorous plants so I was instantly attracted to this dress.

THE EQUIPMENT

Sugarpill Cosmetics Eyeshadows, Fyrinnae Aye Captain, MAC Absolute Power lipstick, Hair Flowers: Sourpuss Clothing, Pinupgirl Clothing, and made by me, Bracelet: Le Chateau, Necklace: Bunny Paige.

THE OUTFIT


Dress: PinupGirl Clothing
Waist Cincher: Artifice Clothing
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

Speaking of Venus flytraps, my sister gave me a little plant for my birthday earlier this year! Alas, I don't know what the hell I did wrong but I killed it. I have a book about growing carnivorous plants and I was feeding it and giving it distilled water like it said to....not sure what went wrong there. 


ARGH it did so well for awhile and it was so cool!! I will have to try to grow one again someday.

Day Goth

Earlier this summer, I went to a dreaded summer event that I usually avoid like the plague. There is a yearly outdoor exhibition where you can admire and purchase the works of local artists. It is always 30 degrees outside (86 F) and there are always a million people (and children) so I tend to stay away; this year, however, some friends were going so I went along. I ended up dressing a lot more goth-y than I normally would for the daytime for some reason. I also ended up purchasing a nice piece of art for my house; it is a picture of a local landmark painted by my friend's brother.

THE EQUIPMENT

Earrings: Martha Rotten, Necklace: Gift from my sister (Eyescream Jewellery I believe), Nest Indigo perfume, Alex and Ani bracelet, MAC Kling it On lipstick.

Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

Now that it's September I have been enjoying the harvest from my vegetable garden! I have been getting a lot of Swiss chard lately so I've been making one of my favourite recipes:

Swiss chard and tomato linguine with balsamic glazed chickpeas.....the recipe is on Thug Kitchen's website if you want to try it! My parents made the pinot gris.
It's starting to get cold out so I'd better get cooking!! The garden's days are numbered at this point...

Did you make it out to any summer festivals this year?

Long. Black. Asymmetric. Gunmetal.

Today's outfit was worn out for a nice dinner followed by an evening of pool. Pro tip: long necklaces and flappy shirts tend to get in the way when you're trying to line up your shot. Note to self: wear something a bit less involved next time you go play pool. 
The aforementioned necklace is from Lufolk Crafts on Etsy. It is hand-forged and made out of iron.....how cool is that? It also fits in well with my gunmetal accessories.........I really enjoy matching my metals. I have been looking for shoes and a bag with gunmetal accents for quite some time without success.

THE EQUIPMENT

Necklace: Lufolk Crafts, Earrings: Local clothing store.

I am starting to see iron jewellery popping up here and there and I think it's really neat! What do you think of it?
