When You Know You’re Done

First off, hey – yeah, I know I haven’t been on here in a damn long time. That magical combination of life, a new job, and various other things have taken my attention away from this more personal bit of blogging. But hopefully with 2018 here, I can get back into the swing of things. And speaking of those New Years sort of changes – lets talk about fashion!

If you’ve known me for any long stretch of time, you probably know that for the last 12 or so years, my life has pretty much been dedicated to one particular hobby – Lolita Fashion. From the delicate lace, Historical and Fairy Tale references, and touches of pop culture elements – Lolita (for a while) really had it all for me. There was something both so unique and classic, that I couldn’t really imagine my life without it. Yet as the years went on, I asked myself “How much longer would I really want to be a part of this?” and up until recently, I never had the answer.

“For Ed” – a Love Letter to a Nostalgic Crush and Hero

In the spirit of nostalgia coming back to TV (I’m looking at you, Twin Peaks) I felt it important to take my own stroll down memory lane and present a little love letter to a show (and specific character) that I hope makes a return at some point. 

I believe it is best to start off this paragraph like Sophia of The Golden Girls would…. Picture It, New York, 1997. My mom just dropped me off at my grandparents. There, they give me some yogurt, and flip on the TV. And much like midnight for Cinderella, the hour of 8am was quite a special one, because it meant Northern Exposure re-runs were on. The enchanting tune of the theme song played, the moose walked by Roslyn’s Cafe, and my mind was sucked into the misadventures of Joel (Rob Morrow) and his Alaskan buddies.

Back a few years ago on my older blog, I wrote a silly list that gave way to something I talk about quite often – “My Old Man Crush List”. What is such a list, you might ask? Well it is exactly what it sounds – if you have a crush on a silver fox of the big screen or any sort of celeb, he is part of your “Old Man Crush List”. Trust me, there can be ones for ladies as well, but for me I tend to think the gentlemen one is a bit more fun to make. So without further ado, here is an update to my original top 10 breakdown of hotties of a certain age. Have things changed? Let’s take a look! Read more

KERA Magazine and Gothic & Lolita Bible “Ending” – What Does It Mean?

I’ll be honest that my up-keep with this blog has been next to nothing in the past months. Life gets pretty busy when you have a lot of your plate as I do – yet there are some things that require you to push those demands to the side for a second and say “I need to talk about this.” And that thing my friends is connected to that title above. So yes, if you are an Alternative Fashion fan who hasn’t heard the news, you should brace yourself.

Hi readers! I have returned from the crypt that is my life to give you a review of something new and ridiculously cute. I’m making a point that I’m gonna bring this blog back to life this holiday season, and here is the start of it.

A few weeks ago, Irregular Choice (the famous shoe company, known for their ridiculous designs and whimsical outlook) released an entire collection dedicated to one of the first of Disney royalty, Cinderella. Of course, I was over the moon with the news, and especially so after the entire collection was presented to the internet.

So what did I buy? Well, I found the shoes that perfectly explained, well, me – in shoe form. Let me introduce you to the Believe in Magic flats!
