[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.

[Event] Trannyshack: Depeche Mode Vs. Siouxsie

Went to my first ever Trannyshack on Friday night. It was Depeche Mode vs. Siouxsie and the Banshees, how could I resist? Though I was slightly disappointed that no one performed “Christine” (not only my namesake, but a song clearly about a transvestite), the show was pretty spectacular. Despite the popular misconception that drag shows are all fluff and gags, there was some real depth to the performances that night. Granted, there was a drag queen dicing up her husband and shooting girl scouts to Siouxsie’s “Happy House”, there were also heavy portrayals of the saddest parts of history, including the Native Americans exploited by the white men and the struggle for equality in the gay community. Intense stuff, but ridiculous amounts of fun nonetheless.

Check their website for upcoming shows, though I will warn you that dark themes are few and far between.
