[Places] Hunted

One thing I’ve never been that fashionably adventurous with are accessories. Most of my jewelry is very simple and dainty. Being more of an introvert, which may have nothing to truly do with it, I tend to stick towards classic and simple fashion, thus the need for conversation piece jewelry is minimal. However, I can’t help but appreciate great costume jewelry as they make great statement pieces that can make the most simple of outfits stand out.

Not far from where I currently reside, there is literally a small, hole in the wall shop that specializes in unique vintage costume jewelry called Hunted. The owner, Erika, hand-picks her inventory from various avenues and her assortment does not disappoint. Not strictly goth, or any fashion genre for that matter, there are great pieces for any person’s style. I wouldn’t suggest wearing the studded cuffs to work, but maybe one with an a few bangles would be a nice edge on casual Friday.

Hunted is located at 843 Divisadero St, between McAllister and Fulton in San Francisco.

[Recap][Cosmetics][Places] I Could Have Done Separate Posts But Shut Up

And I’m back! I guess my physical vacation became an internet vacation as well. I’m sad to report that I didn’t experience any hauntings or spooky happenings aboard the Queen Mary upon my stay. Though I say that with disappointment now, if something supernatural had happened, I’d be reacting with sheer terror and absolutely no excitement.

Spooky, Scary!
The Queen Mary: Spooky, Scary!

 

But enough about awesome and old British ships! Let’s talk Disney.

E.l.f Cosmetics released their Disney Villains Collection exclusively at Walgreen’s recently, and I am fully confident in telling you all that it’s more than worth the $10 for a palette look-book set! I have three of the four (Maleficent, Evil Queen and Ursula… sorry, Cruella), and my favorite thing about the shades is that they’re not too costume-like. I don’t feel like an actual cartoon character when I wear them, but instead like a sophisticated and sultry adult. Well done! And the primer is the best I’ve used since Urban Decay’s! I’m not even exaggerating!

And on the topic of Disney, I leave you with a picture I recently took there with my friend and co-writer on [meepzine],  Peter Girard. I would like to note that I am wearing poison apple Mickey ears that were of a 400 limited quantity from Disneyland’s Friday the 13th celebration. Just sayin’!

Me and my friend Peter at Disneyland. I'm actually thrilled, I promise.

[Places] I’m on a (Haunted) Boat!

Ahoy, there! Blogging from an iPhone aboard the permanently docked and supposedly haunted Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. So far, I have spotted no ghosts, but I did just arrive a mere 4 hours ago. There is an exercise room and spa, as well as a Tea Room that is currently exhibiting a Princess Diana display.

Will be posting more, after I sleep! Tomorrow is Disneyland!
