NGSD Prom Dance

dress also featured here

Sunday evening we got gussied up for Next Generation Swing Dance, prom theme! Since we've been taking date lessons and we missed last month's dance, we got to cut a rug and know what we are doing. Hahaha!!! Chuck Chaz (who is our teacher/runs the dance) he taught a Foxtrot lesson before the dance started and man, I was having a tough time! I am definitely interested in learning different dance styles, but I think my brain was so focused on Swing that I couldn't make sense of it. "Come on feet, work with me!!!"


I hope everyone had a great weekend!!!!

Thank you for reading, until next time.

Deviously Divine (Accessories) to Soothe the Sinners Soul: Se7en Deadly Clothing

My first blog featuring Se7en Deadly Clothing had me comfy and casual with their awesome hangover lounge pants, yet their accessories have us feeling fancy! Oh yes, their awesome designs don't stop at apparel, they have some amazing hair bow offerings under the "oddities" section.

One way I like to get maximum use out of hair bows is by attaching them to a sweater, dress strap, scarf, etc., I feel like it's just another fun way to accessorize! I am loving the Broken Cherub Bow clipped onto my shrug sweater paired with the Repent Creepy Doll Bow in my hair. Since the bows are mounted to alligator clips, they really stay put! I tend to wear hair accessories close to my shaved side, so a secured clip helps me to..well, feel secure! Nothing like being totally bummed after realizing you've lost one of your favorite hair accessories. Sigh...

When Derek saw the Date Night Necktie, he said "Ohhhhh!", as he also enjoys wearing black and white ensembles. The silky white tie has a retro image of guy and a gal playing around with the Ouija board. Does that sound like a fun date night to you? Hehehe! There is nothing boring about Se7en Deadly's necktie selection, as Derek is overjoyed to find men's accessories that fit his macabre sense of style.

Look into his eyes...maybe not too close. LOL!

Ummm, so Derek looks a little crazed, but I think it's because he is excited to share with my readers a discount code from Se7en Deadly! Enter COFFINKITSCH into the discount code section at checkout to receive 20% off your entire order. Say what?! Awesome.

Thank you for reading, until next time!

Goth in the Garden

Landscaping in the backyard is done....for now! My low maintenance rock garden dream has been made a reality. I didn't think I would get it all done yesterday, yet I was motivated and had a good night's sleep. 

I threw this outfit on after showering and washing my hair (it's soooo flat, lol!), to run errands. I have a new favorite clothing combo! The meshy sweater was a thrift find that was floating around for years until I realized the long unflattering style was begging to be cut into a crop top. Voila!

The cross print dress was an eBay buy from last year. It's a Forever 21 dress that I bought for $5 off a seller and I like it because, it's a little different as the crosses are a floral print. Add leggings, a necklace, some cowboy boots, a hair bow and I'm out exploring the world-which means grocery shopping. I've been in mostly grimey clothes on my days off, so it's nice to show a nice casual outfit that isn't a work outfit. *Wink*

I hope everyone is having a rad week so far!

Backyard Adventures: Now with Moai!

Our Moai arrived yesterday! He's small and made of light weight resin, but we still love him all the same. As you can see this section of our yard is now filled with pea pebbles as this is my solution to dealing with weeds as well as our vision to put a water feature in this area. In the process of buying the house, the previous owners wanted to take their Japanese Maple tree, which was planted in this corner and we agreed. I didn't care for the landscaping and plants they had in the back and front yards, so at the end of last summer we dug up a lot of the plants up and gave them away. Derek and I are not gardeners and pretty much have black thumbs (no goth pun intended), yet we want to have some plants that are low maintenance and luckily there are a lot of Hostas around the house!

The rest of the small garden in the backyard will be weeded, some Hostas moved to look more balanced, weed barrier put down and then pea pebble. We've had our eyes on some planters, including this skull planter to have some visual interest our backyard oasis as well as keeping plants neat and organized..if that makes any sense. 

What I really want our backyard to look like. Hahahaha!!!

Back in the garden today, I hope I get a lot accomplished as I can't wait until the weather gets warmer and we can sit in the yard with a Mai Tai and just watch the world go by. Hehe!

Are you working on any gardening projects?
