I've never been the girl who needs to be up on the trendy bag and/or shoe (except when I was in elementary school and desperately wanted a Vuitton monogram bag. These things pass). But this YSL bag is absolute perfection. You can see how high quality it is, never mind that it costs as much as a used car.

all saints
all saints - by Lux Interior on

In my travels, I discovered a blog called Haute Macabre, who directed me to the fabulous UK line (so I'm probably late to the party) All Saints, which seems to do Rick Owens (or is it the other way round) on the cheap. Everything you could want to furnish your gothic lifestyle, from fringed leather vests to bikini bottoms with chains on (so impractical, yet so desirable), to ram's head wallpaper. And they appear to ship to America!

Keep thinking about this J. Crew "canvas boardwalk magazine tote", it is acid green so there's your springtime neon trend, and if you covered it in badges, it would be the ultimate gothic preppy accessory.

So I'm going to see Depeche Mode!
That's good.
It's in six months.
That's bad.
But that gives me six months to come up with a suitably gothic outfit.
That's good!
The toppings contain potassium benzoate.
Can I go home now?

would love to wear this dress, don't know if I can drop that much money at this point in life...

with these boots (seriously, be still my heart!)

and this jacket! Just kidding but not really...

Hey y'all, I've been a poor poor fashion blogger of late. Apologies. Here are some pictures that should soften the blow

Sweetness and Light

Spring 09
Spring 09 - by Lux Interior on

It is springtime, finally (Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow! Or is it ends tomorrow? I can never remember), and all I can think about are these Cheap Monday "anti-fit" chinos; they are the best possible kind of preppy. Won't get out of it cheaply though, since they can only be found on two sites and neither are in the US, ugh. How fresh with the J. Crew canvas and leather tote (you could put band buttons on it; that's what I'm going to do once I buy it) and chiffon-trimmed tee. Add these Matt Bernson sandals and classic Wayfarers and you are good to go.

The last thing you need for Spring are these Target Alexander McQueen leggings; I didn't think anything of them until I saw this picture from Gareth Pugh:

Wowee wow wow wow!

from The Fashion Spot

Weird editorial from this month's Harper's Bazaar; reminds me of the surreal Vogue editorials of old.

from My Vintage Vogue

-Built By Wendy is having an online sample sale until tomorrow, there are some sick deals to be had. I picked up the "Ghost in the Machine" pullover for a cool $20.

As far as I'm concerned, you can never have too many 80s themed clothing items.

-Am going to be contributing to a vintage clothing site; when it's live I'll let you know!
