All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Here, there be pirates1. Seafaring Pirate Hat - Tricorn - topsyturvydesign
2. Rust Oak Leaf Vixen Pirate Coat - damselinthisdress
3. Stripe bustle bloomers - loulahbelle
4. Dread Metallic Print by Bethalynne Bajema - ettadiem
We all know that there is nothing romantic about *real* pirates. Dirty, dangerous scoundrels that they were, but their fictional counterparts on the other hand, now there's something I can work with. So today I present a little dress up inspiration for the summer. Hats and coats and bloomers and just a little touch of fantastic art for a final touch.

I wish that Topsy Turvy picture revealed the AWESOMENESS that is the tentacled corset underneath. Hail the Octo-Duchess!

And I like pirates, too. Shiver me timbers!
