You guys, Domino Dollhouse has a new collection inspired by ’90s female musicians. This is literally the best thing ever.
Red plaid, leopard, daisy print, and lyrics from Garbage and Hole? Yessssssss. I’m also excited that most of the items are cotton, and they’re a bit cheaper than many of DD’s previous collections.
Here are a few pictures of the collection, and then some music to get you in the angsty-girl-power mood:
This jack-o-lantern partied a bit too hard.
Happy day-after-Halloween! I hope you all had a good time. I spent the evening watching Cabin in the Woods with a group of friends, and although I don’t usually like horror movies, I loved it! It’s pretty much impossible for Joss Whedon to make anything bad, and it didn’t hurt that the cast was full of great actors.
I also had a Halloween party last weekend, where I dressed up as a steampunk Pikachu (in reference to this comic). I will post pictures soon! Now, on to the linky goodness…

Some things never change; one of them is my love of photorealistic floral prints.
I put this outfit together for Kelly’s Fall Fashion Faceoff challenge, combining a skirt I’ve had since middle school (which is old enough to make it “vintage”–eek!) with a blazer I got about a year ago.
