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!
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

60s-70s Goth

No, not the decade...I mean goth fashion for when you're in your 60s-70s. Dark fashion is truly beautiful at any age. All photos are from Advanced Style except where noted, notably the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall 2014 one. I'm loving that there are older runway models. I'm not even that old and I'm kind of tired of seeing teenagers modeling clothing that I'm supposed to wear. I recommend you check out the Advanced Style blog for style tips from women who've had an entire lifetime of looking fabulous. The looks are truly bold and unique and no doubt inspiring.

New Rock Boots for Everyday Wear

Fee, from An Honest Drug (another dark fashion blogger who I think has a lot of great modern goth/nugoth styles) recently scored some New Rock Boots at a charity shop. And she bought the same ones I have!

Spooky Totem Animals/Plants

Stepping away from dark fashion, I just want to announce a few new goth totem animals to replace the old bats/cats/crow cliche. For funsies.

Trend: Minerals

Maybe it's because I like it, but I've been seeing raw stones everywhere.

Baby, the Stars Shine Bright: NYC store opening

Sorry...instagram pictures until i get my camera from my sister
So, yesterday was the grand opening for the NYC Baby, the Stars Shine Bright store. I went with my sister and we made our teenage selves pretty happy. Lolita was pretty out of reach for us growing up. Back then it was only DIY or you had to go to Japan, so it was pretty much just for the super-rich. (not that it isn't still expensive!)
