Firstly, apologies to those who’ve stopped by to say hi – I’ve been happily reading your blog posts but I am having great difficulty posting comments to Blogger hosted blogs and don’t wish to comment-bomb anyone, so am hanging fire before attempting again. But here we are on day two of Red & Black week.
Today I am feeling somewhat scraggy of form, so no pics of me. However, I have recently been lusting over some very nice (and frankly unaffordable) gothic items that are also red, so here is a summary of my current lust list:
Firstly there is this frankly stupendous steampunk corset from Corsets-UK:
I am no Xena, but this would look amazing on someone more warrior princess than me. That said, it’s an amazing price, reduced from £95 to £35 in their sale – naturally not in my size. Grumble… I do have one of their underbust corsets and it is stunning, excellent quality. I am an utter convert to their gorgeousness. Go visit Corsets-UK and groan at the loveliness. There’s an entire red section right here.
Then there’s Alchemy Gothic. I’m a bit wary of their jewellery as I am quite petite and it can be quite overpowering on my frame. Their pieces are very generously sized. But they have one piece – the Faith & Love necklace – in their most recent collection that’s chewing on my non-rational brain:
I’ve been eying this up in my local gothic jewellers and it’s just the right size. Alas I am poor!
Then there’s my all consuming obsession with Hell Bunny frocks. In particular, the Adare. Absolutely beautiful dress, cute print and pretty corset detail, this is currently no 1 on my clothing wish list:
I could go on. And on and on. There’s the Sadie Doc Martins. There’s the Hell Bunny Millie coat. Several Spiral Direct tops. Barry M’s sparkly cherry lip gloss that is basically the holy grail of lip glosses and permanently sold out everywhere I look (though they always have a tester, the swines).
I need a lie down in a darkened room now. Til tomorrow, folks!
