Bakelite All Night + Charlotte Olympia Goes B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

    Happy Margarita Monday, my fellow Comrades in glamour! I don’t wear super high heels anymore, so you better believe that when I do, they are going to be the most extreme and just a little bit ridiculous 😉 Back in May, I was sitting in my Airbnb flat in Paris and I got…

La Vie En Rose + Bedtimes With Brassai

Is there anything more delicious than the perfume of roses? When I die, I want to be buried in thousands of rose petals in the palest of lilac… I  remember when I saw my very first corpse. I was eight years old, living in a small village along the Black Sea in Bulgaria. It was…

Mrs. Mia Wallace Vibes

  I said GODDAMN! Who else is glad that the week is more than halfway over?

Seeing and feeling this…

Curve Appeal.

“Cultivate your curves – they may be dangerous, but they won’t be avoided” -Mae West Greeting comrades! As you may (or may not) know, I am forever on a quest to refine my silhouette. I find curves, indentations, protrusions, light, shadows, structure, and the malleability of soft flesh endlessly fascinating. Corsetry (training with a “proper”…

1984.

Greetings comrades. 2017 is off to a pretty rough start here in The United States of Anxiety. The gravitas of the political situation here has definitely sunk in, and no amount of vodka and cigarettes can make things better. If there is a silver lining, it would definitely be the fact that it is in…
