Ice Cream Soup

I think its safe to say most of us have an "inspiration" folder floating around somewhere in our computers. Mine in particular happens to be fashion-centric. Oh sure I have other folders for collecting different types of images, "art", "blog", "vintage photography", "gifs", "girls", etc etc...but "inspiration" I try and keep specifically for fashion-y stuff (i.e. shit I like that I wanna tweak and make my own someday, ya know..like a real artist). Take a peek:

So I'm just gonna go ahead and pretend it hasn't been months since the last time I updated this thing. Let's get on with our regularly scheduled programming:

Picks for today:

Witchy 90's lace crop top
(I almost don't want to include the link for this because I want it for myself, but I shouldn't be spending any more money on clothes right now so I'll let someone else have a chance.)

Russian criminal tattoo graphic leggings
(These are really neat, the chick prints the graphics on American Apparel leggings so you can expect at least ok quality material. Plus she gives you the option of customizing the prints by choosing from a small selection of various tattoo graphics she provides. Cool idea!)

Made-to-measure black corset pants
(Really cute, and at $110 they're priced pretty well for a made-to-measure item. Also they're made from a rayon/spandex blend meaning they're soft and wouldn't stretch out like a cotton jersey legging.)

Bunch o' stars chain ear cuff set
(Real cute, handmade, and only $8.75)

I had a hard time putting together this post tonight since its been so long since I've done any real heavy browsing through my usual clothing/accessory haunts. I haven't really had much extra cash which makes it tough to even look at boutiques, let alone create a good selection of stuff.

My point with these "picks of the day" posts and the majority of this blog in general is to attempt to sift through all the crap and "curate" , if you will, a top-notch collection of fashion goodies suitable for darklings such as myself. I try to provide items at all price ranges, but I like to focus on secondhand and low to mid $ goods because that's what I can afford. I'm not one of those bloggers who continually raves about how one just HAS to have those sick new $600 Acne platforms, or A. Wang purse, or Ksubi jeans or whatever. Occasionally I'll add in expensive items but mostly its just because I dig a certain aesthetic. Anyways without further ado:

Picks for today!

Conjure perfume
@ solsticescents
This Etsy brand has a lot of interesting perfumes. Nice little descriptions behind each one, and great prices too. Each perfume bottle runs about $8.00.

Vintage sheer black lace dress
@ AstralBoutique

Vintage Bebe corset top
@ recollectionsclothing

Vintage lace thong bodysuit
@ TwiceLux

Cute vintage lingerie tops
@ tarantulasisters

Kind of kickass leather bra. Only $38 bucks! Way cheaper than pretty much every other basic leather bra top I've seen that isn't totally ridiculous. Personally thinking about making this one of my next investments.
@ imosh

Sweet "evil" rosary

Upsidedown cross earrings (you can by them in singles or pairs)
Also at imosh.
