Faux pockets are an abomination. If you’re going to bother putting pocket flaps on something, add the G-d damn pockets.
I am reblogging my own post to add: Yes, some clothing manufacturers stitch the pockets shut; a few minutes with a small pair of scissors or a razor, and ta-da! Pockets. HOWEVER, that situation is not the norm. Whomever had the original idea to make useless faux pocket flaps WITH NO POCKETS UNDER THEM, I hope they spend eternity with too many small, important, necessary things they need to carry and no pockets.
On the other hand, a lot of anti-makeup sentiment– particularly anything that starts talking about how “frivolous” and “shallow” makeup is– is also misogynistic and femmephobic. Makeup is a form of visual art. If making your face beautiful is shallow, so is making a canvas beautiful or a block of marble or a hunk of plastic. If you understand why someone would feel satisfied and happy when they make a gorgeous print, you understand why someone would feel satisfied and happy when their makeup looks perfect. I do not think it is accidental that the form of visual art almost entirely practiced by women is the one that gets accused of frivolity and where the talent exhibited by many of the artists is ignored or denigrated.
This is the same with fashion.
::shrieks:: Kambriel my darling, that is BEAUTIFUL. And that design is going on my wishlist RIGHT NOW.
Sherlockian Greatcoat by Kambriel
Based on one we recently made for Neil Gaiman ~ this black wool greatcoat is custom made for both neglected murderesses and dastardly gents… The prototype (seen in the above photo ~ already made & ready to ship) is also currently available.

Malice Mizer: their outfits are a good example of neo-romantic goth look I’ve been talking about. Perhaps tonight I will dig out my big photobooks of them and the early G+L Bibles.
Sir, I must insist that you give me your hat and cape, and then deliver yourself to the StuntHusband. Distract him from my claiming said hat and cape.

What a fabulous outfit. The hat is what makes it perfect.
I hate to break it to you, peeps, but it looks like the skeleton Dr. Martens boots are no longer available to purchase anywhere. I know I bought mine a little over two years ago from Amazon.
