I fell out of the habit of checking personal style blogs a few months ago. Something about the nouveau-pop-Goth look--you know it, piles of rings, leggings, Jeffrey Campbell platforms, drapey layers, "esoteric" symbols, etc., etc.--becoming omnipresent and overly trendy... in the end, who cares? I'd rather see crazy-ass ladies working it out in whatever their hearts' desire, no need to consider if it's KVLT enough.

So with that in mind, you can imagine my amazement and instant full-blown love affair when I stumbled across this previously unknown-to-me style blogger. Everybody, here's Princess Paolina of Calur Villade.

My reaction upon seeing this gif? SKEET SKEET SKEET. Gimme those mescaline-gypsy robes, gurlfran. Wowza. Then there's this handmade "yarn web thing":

WHATTTTTT. I'm dying. FROM PREMATURE EJACULATIONS. Sorry, but this is too good.

Thank you for validating my lust for hair-as-accessories:

Thank you, from the bottom of my little black heart. This is kind of giving me new life. My blog is like a wizened old Nosferatu, slurpin' up some fresh young blood.... ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Liquid refreshment!

Not sure of the provenance of this image (Tumblr, yo), but I couldn't let such blatant use of terrible, hulking, fantastical Millennial cyber-goth-candy-raver (a proud and noble community no doubt) footwear go unnoticed. I only hope these have little rollerskates that pop outta the bottom, of they can blast off into space under their own power, or something like that.

Rave on!

I just came across these incredible styles on the equally inspiring Chateau Thombeau.

Fluffy yeti pants just make sense for March weather, you know? And there is seriously no wrong time for matching your significant other in satin Poiret harem suits. And domino masks!

Whoa! So right after hitting post on that last entry, I did a little Google image search on liquid crystals. I was intrigued when I read in's review that the Kanes were inspired to come up with 'a textile that's never been used' in their new collection. Turns out... they were totally scooped!

Check out this 2007 article on Cleveland-based technology firm AlphaMicron Inc. In addition to the hybrid sunglass/goggles with color-changing liquid crystal lenses, this dress with liquid-filled fringe is currently blowing my mind.

According to the article, they hadn't yet gone into production in 2007. I'm thinking that for A/W 2011, their time has finally come.

Christopher & Tammy Kane really know a thing or two about liquid crystals.

...Yes, I'm still alive (as long as you count Dead Alive) and still deeply interested in horrible shoes.
