black planet

Have I mentioned how much I love Etsy? Its so much more fun to browse through than Ebay and you're more likely to find better deals on things that would cost tons more on Ebay. Everything in this post was found on Etsy. Many of these items are one of a kind so once they get bought they're gone for good.

90's black lace crop top (long sleeve stretch lace tops are the best)80's/90's black lace bustier dress (ok so yeah I'm a little obsessed with black stretch lace if you haven't noticed by now)

Vintage sheer maxi dress (how cute would this be with super chunky boots? I love that its see-through which means you can change up the look of it by wearing different slips underneath)

80's flygirl cotton jacket (Urban Outfitters only wishes it could capture this kind of radness)

Best part of all these is that they're all $50 or less. Score!

80's denim lace up skirt (perfect with a tank bodysuit and some pixie boots)

Vintage skull necklace
Vintage demon cross necklace (I kind of dig this, although I'd get rid of those rhinestones since that kind of kills the whole spooky vibe)

via Lanter

I found a great shop that's a veritable goldmine of vintage religious jewelry. I can't tell you how long I've scoured Ebay for crucifixes and rosary's and never found anything really cool. But this shop has tons of old old pendants and things all for extremely reasonable prices.

the real estate must be pretty high on leg avenue

Felt like doing a post on leggings. I like leggings if worn the right way (as in not with just an oversize t-shirt and high heels like how 95% of girls think is ok to do). I attempted to find some nice ones in the below $50 range which was not too easy considering leggings these days are priced so ludicrously expensive.

Now for my exorbitantly priced picks:

Black Milk liquid leggings (sooo...shinyy...)

Blac Milk suspender leggings (I can't help it, I love how hot 'n slutty these are. I would totally sport them.)

Black Milk lace up leggings
so I kind of dig these but not enough to even come close to being ok with paying $250 for them. I know I can find something similar and a lot cheaper on the internets somewhere...
