Anxiety

I was doing what I now and then accidently do, which is hunting down rare items around Internet (even though I couldn't afford them in the end), and this time I was after this:

Vivienne Westwood's Love Jacket from year 1987.


This one is sold in Rakuten with $1,117.20
Find it [here].

Heh. Cute.

Dreaming Around Etsy

What a wonderful place etsy.com is... to lose your money and life.
Here is few things that I ran in to this time:

[LunarraStar Jewellery]
Very pretty jewellery from bracelets to necklaces, taking their images and ideas from fairytales like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. She ships worldwide and in her profile she states that shippings are done within 24-48h. Now that's fast.


[Eternal Autumn]
Camees in gothic. I like camee things, I like gothic: feature earned.
Rings and pendants, ships from US worldwide and takes payments in PayPal... maybe some pretty day I order something from her...


[Dreadful Things]
More gothic jewellry, pretty much the same style as those of Erenal Autumn above. (Not the same naturally.) The paintings and the art work aren't for my tastes, but this:

Yes, this I want. If it's price wasn't over 100$ that is..

[Nouveau Motley]
Steampunk spirited accessories, mostly, not suprisingly: rings, bracelets and necklaces. Mostly the 'traditional' steampunk stuff, playing with the innards of poor old clocks. But there was few bird's skull accessories like this:

Alright, that's pretty scary. Pretty and scary?


And to lighten the mood a bit:Can someone make me a Darth Vader cupcake?"Star Wars Cupcake Toppers - Set of 12 Picks" [Here]
Think about it... an army of Darth Vader cupcakes...

All in all, lot's of steampunk accessories and endless piles of Alice inspired things.
Not that it's a bad thing, but _lots_. The "geekery" cathegory is marvellous.

Who says you can't wear long sleeves when it's over 20'C?


Argh, I had sites of some store waiting to be featured here, but the com crashed and err, I lost it.

I haven't worn kodonas for whole summer, which is pretty understandable in sense that it has been way hot out there. But aside of that I have felt more like dressing in gothic skirts and that with punk touch (or just nightwear, it's summer, I don't need to get up everyday).
(Maybe it's the short hair, identity problems? 8D)

Today however I threatened the +20'C and over with my long sleeves and fabric layers! It felt so nice to drag those clothes out of the wardrope for a long while. Now I'm quite hyped of purchasing new stuff for the style again. Maybe I could try to sew something...
(I did buy some happy and black T-shirts today (0.90-1.50€ each, second-hand shopping rules). Nothing fancy.)



Argh! Hey, that was of a good quality and a big photo, why does blogger's pic-feature-system rape it? You can see PIXELS if I make it any larger. Shoot you, bad system.

Oh, and there would be a meeting of a lolita-and-the-rest -kind of forum, around my homecity this month. I'm not really active writer, knowing none etc so I'm not sure if I dare to go at all. In the other hand it could be fun...
