Nevermore

The Secret Affair opens tomorrow and I can only rejoice at the beginning of the autumn season and the creep-fest that is to follow. Head over to get your fix of all things Edgar Allan Poe this round.

The Poor Soul chair from Fetch sets a perfect gloomy tone, accompanied by Paco Pooley’s gorgeous caged candles.

Last Words

My famous last words
Are laying around in tatters
Sounding absurd whatever I try
But I love you and that’s all that really matters

If this is goodbye.

Cat Sitter

The Arcade is in full swing and one of my favorite vendors this time around is Fashionably Dead, who has flooded the grid with beautifully drawn kitties. Bastion was kind enough to let me drop him in the middle of my feline swarm today. It’s a large photo, so click through if you want to see the full-sized version.

Retreat

One of my favorite colleagues ever had a saying she used with students when they got a little out of control in her class. I have used it often, myself, and actually taken her advice on many occasions:

“Sometimes, it’s just time to retreat to the privacy of your own mind.”

In our media-saturated world it can be hard to do that, but it is important that we be able to be alone with ourselves sometimes.

On the other hand, too much inward focus may be a bad idea when wearing these super-sexy heels from L’enfant Terrible.

Bucket

My beautiful friend Gillian recently did the ALS Bucket Challenge and you can see her super-cute post here. She challenged me to do the same…so I hereby accept the challenge! I went a little overboard with the Photoshop so I could use my favorite pose in the Momentum series and yet still fulfill the actual ice part of the challenge.  You can read all about the ALS here.

So….now the time has come for me to nominate friends for this challenge…and I challenge my wonderful blogger friend Rudhmellowen Laguna and fellow shopper-sometimes-stalker Skylar Coeur. Get that ice-maker going, ladies!

Keeping Up

Not being a regular follower of the Kardashians, I know pretty much nothing beyond their names. However, I very much like Ivy Burner’s tribute top and skirt, available at District 5. Tiffy Vella has also released her Blenheim stilettos at La Metallique Fair by L’accessories, where they will be on sale until September 9th.

Pause

You would think with as long as it took me to get into Collabor88 I might have blogged a bit more of what I found when I actually got there. Fortunately the 8th-of-the-month traffic (let’s face it…the whole first week of Collabor88 is like L.A. at rush hour) has died down, and I can showcase some of the wonderful designs available this month…and my readers might actually be able to get there to find them.

I chose a (sort-of) men’s style from Tableau Vivant today because I love the smooth textures and needed something that would show off the stunning headdress from Glam Affair. Did I say stunning? I meant S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G.

Maxi Gossamer continues to provide consistently high-quality jewelry…this month Maxi branched out into jewelry that is a bit more formal in style. I look forward to seeing what else she creates in this vein.
