Red & Black Week 2012 Recap

You ladies (and a couple of gentlemen!) really pulled out all the stops for Second Annual Red & Black Week.  I simply can’t express how pleased I am with the enthusiasm this event garnered amongst our little community!

It’s such a shame that Mr. Linky died in the final hours of the event.  This was beyond my control, as Linky is a paid service I use.  They have the system back up and running now, so if you missed getting your Day 6 post linked up, please let me know.

And now, the results!

We had a total of 62 participants this year; an incredible increase over last year’s 28 participants.

Altogether, we posted 218 posts.  12 of us posted for all six days of the event.  8 people posted five out of six, and 7 people posted on four out of six days. Our biggest single day was Day Two with 41 entries.

Topics covered included fashion, jewelry, makeup, nails, crafts, flowers, books, poetry, photography, video games, home decor, music videos, nightclubs, cars, hair care products, camping gear, drawings, paintings, food, toys, pets and more!

In case you missed anything, check out all of the Red & Black Posts.

Thanks for a great week, everyone!  I can’t wait for June 2013 so we can do it again.  In the meantime, stay tuned for my monthly one-day themes, which will resume July 1.

April 1 Theme: Flowers

Click photos for a larger view.

Floral print can be challenging in Gothic fashion. Some Goths love it, some hate it; either way, it can be difficult to make it “work” with the look. I know many of you are probably cursing at me for this theme… 😉 You are not alone, as I was cursing myself for a couple of days, too. I have very few floral print pieces in my wardrobe, the best ones being a red rose print shirt and my grey silk chiffon maxi skirt.

Gothic floral fashion

Mr. Kitty suggested that, instead of featuring something I’ve already worn on this blog, I should push the limits of my hair flower collection. I haven’t been bothering to do much with my hair lately, so I thought this idea was a timely way to get me out of a rut.  I used my favorite chignon, wrapped my own hair in a braid around it, and topped it off with three different hued purple hair flowers.  Massive ones.

I realized that this silk chiffon top from Bebe would be the perfect complement to this floral-themed hair style. The dramatic keyhole neckline is trimmed with matching fabric flowers edged in black and topped with black beads. I paired it with one of my Newport News fishtail skirts.

My rose ring (featured in my February theme post, Rings), a pair of black flower earrings and of course my rose handbag from Pyramid Collection finished my celebration of spring!

I headed out to dinner with Mr. Kitty and my parents in this outfit, to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday. In keeping with the floral theme, I gave her a potted jasmine plant. And some Lindor chocolate truffles, which don’t have anything to do with flowers but are a necessity at all times!

Last but not least, I give you to a view of our humble floral offerings. Living in the desert, we committed to using only low-water landscaping for our yard. We have not a single square inch of grass. We also don’t have a lot of time for landscape maintenance, so most of our design is done using various stone and bricks. However, we did splurge and go for a patch of ice plant. This amazingly hardy succulent ground cover is able to survive our 110-degree summer days AND our occasionally freezing winter nights, all with very minimal water. Best of all, we are treated to the most gorgeous fuchsia-hued flowers for about three months each spring. Looks like we missed quite a lot of the early blooms while we were on vacation last week, but there are many more to come. If we committed to more watering, this whole patch would be thick with flowers for the whole season… But our needs are modest, and we are content with just a smattering of this great beauty.  My delight was enhanced by the fact that our ice plant blooms happen to match tonight’s outfit so perfectly!

Theme for April 1: Flowers

The theme for April 1 is: FLOWERS **

Spring is here! I thought this would be a good time to break out the floral theme. Now, I know some people do not like to wear florals, so as always, your theme post doesn’t have to be limited to clothing. Sure, you can do floral print fabrics or flower-themed jewelry, nail art or accessories, or you can just take a lovely photo of your garden, post some artwork with floral themes, write a poem, review a book or song having something to do with flowers (or at least a flower on the cover), or whatever you can think of that involved flowers in some way. Be as creative as you wish!! Just be sure to cite your source if borrowing photos or content that are not your own original work! 🙂

Be sure to come back on April 1 and submit your post.

How It Works
On the first day of each month, I will post my theme post with the Mr. Linky sign-up form at the bottom. You can link to any post you’ve done that day or previously, as long as it matches the theme. Be sure to add the icon to your post, and link your post to mine using the Mr. Linky box at the bottom.

You can post your theme post earlier than the first of the month, or link to an old post, but you must add it to Mr. Linky on Day 1 of the month. I will leave the Linky open until 11:59 PM PST on April 3, so everyone has three full days to post.

You don’t have to participate every single month. Feel free to join in whenever you wish. Just be sure you get your post linked before the second day of the month!

Also, let’s keep the posts appropriate for all ages, in terms of both language and imagery. Thanks!! 🙂

** Sorry for the short notice on this one: the aforementioned stress and my action steps for resolving it have been fairly consuming lately. Also, we escaped out of town for a few days. It didn’t change the situation at my job, but at least I had a little break from thinking about it. 🙂 I deeply appreciate everyone’s sweet and supportive comments on my last post!! You ladies helped remind me how much sincerity there is in the world, even if there isn’t much in my place of employment.

March 1 Theme: GRAY

Click photos for a larger view.

My outfit for this month’s theme is brought to you by Mr. Kitty. Last weekend I was standing in the closet mumbling to myself while pondering what I should wear for the gray theme. He walked in, caught me mid-mumble and immediately responded, “Do you still have that dress with all the ladies on it?” Problem solved. Today I present to you one of Mr. Kitty’s all-time favorites from my wardrobe. I wore this dress on one of our VERY early dates, and maybe only once since. Yet he remembers it vividly and even brings it up from time to time. It really made an impact! So, without further ado… The outfit!

Yes, this slinky little dress is covered in classical ladies of all shapes and sizes! When I found it about a decade ago in a little shop on Melrose Ave., I fell in love with this celebration of the female form. What is better than wrapping a shapely figure in shapely figures? 🙂

I spent considerable time debating how to approach hair, makeup and accessories to complement this dress. The shrug was a given, since it matched so perfectly (and the dress has plain black spaghetti straps that don’t really lend anything to the overall look). I tried several different necklaces, a couple of bracelets and a huge set of dangly earrings before I realized that less is really more in this case. You won’t hear me say that often, but this print and cut really doesn’t need much embellishment. I went with lightweight black sleeves because it’s still chilly out, and no jewelry other than simple sterling silver studs, ear cuffs and two rings. The belt helped break up the pattern a bit and further emphasize my waist. I added a couple of flower clips to the belt to further the overall femininity of this look.

A sleek, high ponytail seemed perfect for this sleek dress. For the makeup, I decided to go monochrome, which is another thing I don’t do often. I used a shimmery white shadow that was a birthday gift from Sephora, and my usual Ben Nye black shadow applied with a light touch to make it a soft gray. The lipstick is also Ben Nye, in Silver Ice. Silver lipstick, in my opinion, really needs a black outline.

Today’s eyeliner is the result of several tips from Lady Bethezda’s recent Winged Eyeliner Tutorial.   If you are not already a fan of her blog, Bethezda’s Preoccupations, you must check it out right now!

Theme for March 1: GRAY

The theme for March 1 is: GRAY

This month’s theme is another reader request, this time by RubyAlison. Gray is the perfect way to debunk the “Goths always wear all black” myth without going overly-colorful… So now’s your chance to break out your “less than black” clothes and accessories and show everyone how well we wear gray! But of course, your theme post doesn’t have to be limited to clothing. share some gray-themed artwork, write poetry or showcase anything gray and Gothy that you own or wish for! Just be sure to cite your source if borrowing photos or content that are not your own original work! 🙂

Be sure to come back on March 1 and submit your post.

February 1 Theme: Rings

Click photos for a larger view.

Today we celebrate rings! An abundance of rings is definitely a signature aesthetic for any old-school Goth, and I have long been obsessed with wearing at least six rings at any and all times. I used to spread them out across both hands, but these days the left hand is usually reserved for my engagement and wedding rings, which are more a part of me than an accessory and therefore deserve their own special hand. Lately, I’ve grown lazy and will only wear three or so unless I’m really dressing up, like for the clubs.

Above are a few of my favorites. The oval one (second from the right) is actually the first thing Mr. Kitty ever bought for me. On one of our very early dates, looking for something to do after dinner, he asked me if I had ever been to a certain little silver store in town and I exclaimed how that was one of my favorite shops! So we went and bought silver rings together, and like a true gentleman he paid for the one I picked out. The swirly square ring at the bottom of the photo is also from that shop, but I bought it much earlier. The rose ring is from a mall kiosk, and is too big for me. Thankfully, Wal-Mart sells little rubber tubes that go around the bottom of the ring to tighten them up a bit. Not ideal, but better than paying more to have the ring sized than the cost of the ring itself! I actually did that on the cross ring, because I love it so much and used to wear it daily (it was usurped by the aforementioned oval ring from Mr. Kitty).

Above is an example of my most heavily ring-clad look. The silver swirls are homemade from sterling silver wire. I don’t wear them often because one once went flying across the dance floor, causing me great embarrassment even though I’m pretty sure in retrospect that no one else even noticed. No, these never go to the clubs with me now. And they catch in my hair terribly, so they are reduced to non-clubbing, hair-up events exclusively. The one on my middle finger is my oldest ring. I’ve had it since high school. The ones on my ring finger and thumb are from Maya, a shop on Melrose Ave. that is loaded with amazing silver jewelry. The pinky ring is another one from our local silver shop. The little black stone fell out once, and I was fortunate to find it so I could epoxy it back in place. It hasn’t budged since.

These adorable little kittens from Bed, Bath and Beyond keep my favorites handy for me on my vanity table. Or they did, until we got Perseus, who throws everything on the floor if it’s not glued down. So currently, they keep my favorites handy in the closet. That will work until Perseus learns to operate the doorknob…

December 1 Theme: Outerwear

Click photos for a larger view.

I’ve mentioned before that I rarely buy anything from Bebe that is not majorly on sale, and this lace trench coat was no exception. I first spotted it a couple of years ago while wandering around the Bebe at Hollywood and Highland, but upon seeing the $285 price tag I just laughed (and cried a little) and walked away. It never really left my head, so I fatefully decided to check the Bebe Web site a good two months later and found it on sale. More than 50% off! Plus I had accumulated a bunch of points that I always forgot to use, so I saved a bundle on this baby. Most surprising of all was the fact that they actually had my size in stock. Normally when online sales occur, there is not an XS to be found anywhere.

The main reason this jacket isn’t worth $285 is the fact that you can’t wear it when it’s warm, and you can’t wear it when it’s cold. It’s completely unlined, so it must be paired with just the right long-sleeve top or sweater underneath. It also can’t be worn with anything too interesting underneath, or the shapes compete through the lace. So that leaves this plain black jersey knit mock turtleneck: nothing else in my wardrobe really works. It seems there are only a few days a year when the temperature is just right for this combination. I suppose I could add a cardigan over the turtleneck for colder days, but then I would have to be sure I never had to remove the jacket at any point.

As it turned out, the weather was manic the day I wore this for errands and shopping, so I froze half the time and was roasting the other half. I think I was only “just right” for about an hour. But I looked amazing, so I didn’t care.

Although this jacket doesn’t work with too many different tops, it looks great with a variety of skirts as well as pants.

My favorite skirt pairing for this jacket is a fishtail style from Newport News, featured on my blog last spring. A pencil skirt looks great with the jacket, too.

I also picked up my new glasses the day I wore this outfit. My vision hasn’t changed in over 15 years but I still get new frames every couple of years just for entertainment. This time, I went with the silver and black tiger stripes because they reminded me of Perseus and Prometheus.

Not sure if I like the shape of the new glasses, as these are bigger and bolder than my old pair, but Mr. Kitty loves them and compliments them endlessly, so I know they will grow on me when I get used to them.
