Strangely their seems to be some overlap with pirate couture (I didn't know there was such a thing either). And I've had a thing about pirates almost as long as I've had a thing about vampires (in other words since I was six or so) and therefor I really like this shirt.

Again no but if I had somewhere to wear it I could totally rock that dress.
I fully intend to buy these stockings. I've been wearing patterned tights and/or stockings for years and I always wanted some that looked just like this.

Uh noooo. Not unless I'm going to a costume party or I'm in a play or something. But that is a mighty cool picture (sorry I don't actually know the original source).
The thing is what I really like is Victorian inspired fashion. As illustrated here. And I've always loved things that were well a little dark or spooky (Edward Gorey, Edgar Allen Poe, Ummm some other guy named Ed...).
By the way I knew there was a difference between Goth and Vampire (thanks to South Park) but apparently there's also Gothic Lolita (which is different from Goth) and Steampunk which is a whole other thing. And then there's EMO which oddly gets confused with Goth but seems to me to be related to Punk (which used to mean something totally different). I spent a LONG time on google trying to straighten out all the different trends and mostly just got confused. I also found out that Cosplay is not a fetish thing (I was confused because I kept seeing the term along with BDSM terms.... you come across interesting things when you go to web sites that sell corsets)
Okay sorry got distracted there for a minute. Here are a few things I found on Amazon that I would love to own. And may eventually buy.
I mentioned Poe right?

Like most people these days I have nothing to spend on clothes. Clearly posting a picture each day will run through my wardrobe pretty fast. Also many of the items are starting to show a lot of wear. However I dearly loved this site and still think there is a place for a discussion of real clothes that real people wear.
What I'd like to do is tweak my previous format. Yes I will still include pictures when I've got something to share but mostly I want to discuss trends. Thinks I like, things I dislike (Hello Lobster claw stilettos, seriously look it up). I know I've lost the few readers I once had but perhaps there will be more someday. After all this blog has always been a labor of love.
