Once A Vamp, Always A Vamp

Cant’ take the goth or vamp out of me, no matter which way you spin the world…

As evidenced by my Pinterest pages…

Bella and ‘N Spice or really just the whooooole kit and caboodle.



Vintage Witchcraft

Might I just say, these are divine. On every level. ❤

Halloween At Unique Vintage

Can we just take a moment to say “ERMAHGAWD?!” over Unique Vintage’s Halloween Collection?

This belt, for one thing! ❤

And this blanket?! *SNUG!*

But it’s all just precious…though my credit card, under oath to me, shall remain in my wallet…lest I buy with utter abandon! 😉 

Because bats and spider webs are uh-mazing…

I LOVE THE HAUNTED MANSION!!! ❤ And how cute is the skirt?!

This outfit is adorable too… Stripes and Ghouls to stand out. ❤ 

FlimStar On The Go

Charlotte Tillbury has some incredibly gorgeous products…  This two in one compact palette is pretty divine, imparting glamorously flushed cheeks (all that paparazzi, you know!), dewy skin, perfect pout, and a sultry, shimmering gaze.

Filmstar On The Go comes in three color ways: 

  • Some Like It Hot
  • Rebel Without A Cause
  • The Spy Who Loved Me

“Channel your inner Bond Girl with The Spy Who Loved Me, a rose-gold luminescent eye cream paired with a berry balm for a sultry, seductive air.

It’s double trouble with Rebel Without A Cause, a striking gold leaf shadow teamed with a fiery hot pink cheek and lip colour. Cara Delevingne in a jar!

Alternatively, plump for Charlotte’s Studio 54-inspired Some Like It Hot, a sizzlingly 70’s style palette with a gilded green-brown eye colour and punchy peach pout.”


MAC x Dita Von Teese

Now this is a collaboration I’m head over heels for…

Dita, the Queen of Burlesque, is positively spectacular – not only for her porcelain, milky complexion and fiery red pout…but for who she is, and what she has accomplished.  She is the absolute epitome of glamour, sophistication, seduction and ladylike mien.

Per MAC and Ms. Teese:

“I’ve always loved M·A·C and we’ve remained close after working together almost 10 years ago for the M·A·C Viva Glam campaign. M·A·C Cosmetics celebrates individuality and supports people who dare to be different. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to create my signature red lipstick. My M·A·C Von Teese shade evokes glamour and confidence.”

– Dita Von Teese”

The vibrant tomato-hued matte lipstick was inspired by the launch of her new book, Your Beauty Mark.  But anyway, it’s always a good time to have a Dita-infused shade – it is sure to showstop and you can get your paws on it in December, 2015.

The lippie will be available on December 3rd as a limited edition on the MAC website.

According to MAC Creative Director James Gager:

 “Mariah is the over-the-top pop and beauty icon… Throughout the years we’ve all watched her with admiration and feel right now she is at her ultimate best. She exudes elegance, glamour, sophistication, and a sense of fun. Her ‘All I Want’ lipstick is the perfect frosty holiday shade and her Beauty Icon collection will be everything you think of when you think MAC and Mariah.”

It sounds like there might be a broader Collection coming also..? 

Holiday 2015 – Armani Luxe Is More

I love the ad image for the Holiday 2015 Luxe Is More Collection from Armani – it evokes precisely what the  Company was aiming for with these products, all of which are meant to pay tribute to the film sirens of the 1930s and 1940s.

Lips are the most focused-on area of this inherently glamorous look. Eyes are second with sultry definition…but not overpowering… And the canvas, of course, is clear, flawless, polished skin.  

The Collection includes:

Lip Maestro:

  • N° 405 Orient
  • N° 406 Sultan
  • N° 414 Pure Red
  • N° 507 Boudoir
  • N° 508 Pearly nude
  • N° 509 Ruby Nude

Eye Tint:

  • N°16 Rose Platinum
  • N°17 Hollywood
  • N°18 Silver Mirage

The Hollywood Palette:

  • First Tier: Ten matte and pearlescent eyeshadows
  • Second Tier: Luminescent compact powder (for all skin color, combats shine)

Holidays are THE perfect time to channel your inner silver-screen-starlet-ness…so why not go luxe with it?!

Resort 2016 – Zuhair Murad

I came across this STUNNING Zuhair Murad Resort 2016 gown rather by accident…and I had to share.

To me it has a retro-screen-siren glam, but with a “bare” modernity – it would dazzle on the stage, no question…but might have raised a brow or two, teetering on the verge of sheer (har har!), unabashed translucence!

This pellucid, ruby-embellished, mermaid gown would arrest any shutterbug’s stream – I mean grinding halt, people!

Paired with the vintage half-do (that’s a somewhat-off-the-face-updo…according to me! 😉 ) and that bold red lip, it would be impossible not to stare just a little bit longer.  Have any events coming up!?

I’m not sure my mesomorphic body type would do this slim belt justice – with sky-high heels, maybe!?  It really is all about lines!

The gown is minimal, but covered – edgy, glamorous, and somewhat skin-baring…making for an incredibly tasteful show-stopper that is positively radiant on.
