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.

The Jewelry of Kazuhiko Ichikawa 
Personally I think these pieces are the perfect accessories to a Japanese Steampunk outfit. I also think they're gorgeous, different and darkly beautiful. Here's a link to the artist's facebook page as well.

Black Dress 
I have suck a weakness for the long, black dress. It creates drama with no other effort required. They also remind me of cooler weather which I am beginning to long for.

In Style 
I remember going through dozens of fancy notebooks in high school writing poems, doodling and just escaping. I would have been more careful about what I committed to paper if my journals had been this awesome.
