There's nothing better than soaking up the days of late summer. I personally believe this is best done by visiting as many country fairs (deep-fried Twinkie on a stick and Awesome Blossom... pardon my fatness), demolition derbies, and isolated backwoods ice-cold rivers as possible. In the first two destinations, keep your eyes peeled for all the Budweiser tank dresses and scrawled-on tattoos. In the last one, no attention to detail needed, not even a swimsuit. You gotta love the country.

I'm in a weird fashion mood at the moment--probably in a month or so I'll be completely wrapped up in finding cloaks and daggers and whatever for fall, but right now I'm more or less content to slink around in harem pants (they are COMFORTABLE, I know they're about the most fashion-victimy garment out there, okay?) and sandals (platforms please). To shake up this distressing turn of events, I need something sharp, pointy and EVIL. Servalan from Blake's 7 is just the kind of galactic empress I aspire to be: crafty, indefatigable, swathed in feathers and red lipstick.
And hey, 100 posts! When I started this blog I really didn't think I would ever make it this far. I'm looking forward to desecrating the internets with dozens more entries all about my obsessive love for cheap pentacle-bedecked jewelry and scowly cartoon characters...

Dudes, July was not a good blogging month for me, obviously! Somewhere in between searching for a place to live in a new city, suffering through intense summer humidity/thunderstorms, trying to get in as much (ahem) quality time with my boyfriend before I leave for said new city, etc., I got kind of burned out on updating my internets. I pretty much say this every month, but this time I promise to post more!
Anyway, so as I said, I'm moving to Philadelphia next month... so psyched! I hope to fill the next two weeks with some intensive hanging out with friends and hard liquors before I have to leave them behind and chill somewhere new, you know? Any recommendations of awesome local bands, places to go, homegrown designers/stores in Philly are heartily welcome, if you guys know of any. I would particularly enjoy a nice funeral cape like the one the lady above is sporting. Hopefully by the time I move, the weather will be slightly more agreeable to lace-swathing, rather than constant sweat-mopping.
