Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Mr. Kitty and I spent the evening enjoying an Indian feast, followed by dancing to one of our favorite DJs. My outfit for our Valentine’s date revolved around my new Dark Desires earrings, which came from Dark Emporium. Be sure to check out the end of this post for a special offer!
Dark Emporium offers the best prices on Alchemy Gothic jewelry I’ve found, and carries an extensive selection to choose from. They also carry unique Gothic housewares, clothing, purses and more. While browsing their site, I fell in love with these earrings instantly. I wish I could get photos that would do them justice. They are absolutely stunning in person, and so beautifully crafted. The pewter is finished with a dark off-black patina that sets off the giant, smokey Swarovski crystals. I just know the lights on the dance floor were catching these beauties and sending out twinkling sparks through the night!
The description that comes with these earrings is: Bear the brand of dark desire. Black roses weep crystal tears of grief for a love that is doomed from the start. Revel in the bittersweet touch of fleeting joy before succumbing to the power of a grieving, broken heart. Black pewter Alchemy Gothic roses with crystal tear drop details. Doesn’t quite describe Mr. Kitty and I, but I can sure relate to the darkly-romantic sentiment.
The remainder of this fairly simple, elegant outfit consists of a mesh strapless dress that I scored for $20 on eBay, and an intricate lace scarf which was a gift many Christmases ago from Mama Kitty.
I always want to do little still-life shots of the details from my outfits, but I don’t think my studio setup is quite ideal for that kind of work. Still, this one came out okay…
As a gesture to my readers, Dark Emporium is offer them 5% off their already competitive prices on all jewelery items. Just use the code noir2013 at the checkout. They ship worldwide, so this offer is open to everyone!
