Look! Look at babyfaced clintcatalyst! I do not know who the charming young lady with him is, but I’m pretty sure that they’re both wearing clothing from the long-gone Raevyn Clothing. How do I know that? Because that designer made my wedding dress and frock coat.

From the gothy prom post:

jadedhavok said: Your prom date looks like a mix between Ferris Bueller and Patrick Stump.

::sputters with helpless laughter, thinks about pulling “7 Minutes In Heaven (Atavan Halen)” up on iTunes::

It’s not that you’re wrong, it’s just that I never made that connection. Aaron, wherever you are, I hope you’re doing well, and that you’re still as charmingly eccentric as you were in 1988.

The Lost Art of Cassette Design by Steve Vistaunet

He had me at “Music for Cats!” but won my heart forever with “Rat Music for Rat People”

Ooooh, the nostalgia. There are times when I miss these sorts of cassettes.

Oh! The gothy nostalgia! I used to have this exact coffin purse. (I think it went off to live with Aine, because I finally accepted it was a smidge too small for everything I carried.)

Wayback Machine time! Yes, I had enormous hair. And hey, proof I’ve had the purse I’m currently using since 1992-ish. 
(Also, I want to go back in time, hug my younger self and gently tell her to eat a little more regularly, and that GOOD G-D no she’s not overweight, no matter what dumb boys she was dating said. Grrrr.)

Set the Wayback Machine, peeps: Ceremony at Re-Bar is amazingly like the OLD old Vogue, back when it was down on 1st. Same sort of crowd and music. Wheee!

Once upon a time (meaning the late 80s), I had this exact pair of shoes. Yes, I’m always looking for another pair. If any of you find them in a 7.5, TELL YOUR AUNTIE JILLI.

For Gothic Charmschool.

Ha! Which, for me, is either Inglot 175, or the original formula of Chanel Vamp Hydrabase.
Somewhere in my my collection of pages torn from fashion magazines (it’s what we did for inspiration before the Internet, peeps), I have the original Chanel ad from when they introduced Vamp lipstick. IIRC, I was paging through an issue of Vogue while sitting at my desk at WotC; I stopped at the Chanel ad, then stood up and announced to the rest of customer service that SOMEONE was going to take me to the mall during lunch, because I needed to go to the Chanel counter and purchase this lipstick. (Yes, someone did. The nice cosmetics lady told me I was the first person to purchase it at that location. )
