Hello, lovelies! Yesterday was a good day – not only was it Friday (woo hoo!) but I also managed to look pretty spiffy. I wore my “goddess dress” again and also decided to wear my new Alchemy Gothic “Vault of the Seven Saints” necklace. Alchemy pieces are a bit pricey, but the design and craftsmanship are worth it. Alchemy’s design collections change, so once a particular piece stops being made, it’s gone. I bought my necklace from Amazon, but you can also find discontinued Alchemy jewelry on Ebay.
Here’s what I wore. I wore my black, sandal-moccasins because I wanted to be a bit more comfortable for work. But I would also wear my this dress with my black, Victorian-style boots.
Here’s my face. It’s a pretty basic look. I used Ben Nye® Lumiere Creme Colour in Bronze, which is close to my skin tone. It’s a nice color for when I want a “neutral” shimmer:
I had a nice and productive work week, but I’m happy it’s the weekend!The weather’s been gorgeous, and I’m pleased to be able to wear heavier makeup. Autumn also calls for layers and we know how much goths love layers.

This month we celebrate September’s birthstone, the gorgeous Sapphire. Sapphires are known for their gorgeous, blue to blue-violet color but they actually come in a wide range of colors including pink, yellow, peach, and orange. Sapphires can be found all over the world, but the most valuable ones come from Sri Lanka, Myanmar (now Burma), and Kashmir. The most prized sapphires are deep blue to blue-violet. Since ancient times, this gemstone represented “honesty, loyalty, purity and trust”. Sapphire is the Greek word for “blue”.
Here’s yesterday’s outfit. Loose and long, as usual:
Here’s yesterday’s makeup. As we get closer to Fall, the weather’s getting milder and the makeup starts to increase. Fall is also the weather for layers, which makes me very happy.
I didn’t realize how much I missed wearing full makeup. Since humidity kills makeup, I tend to wear it light in the summer. I do like how I wore my makeup, yesterday. My eyebrows need some work, though.
