Creepy Cameos

I’ve always had a soft spot for cameos, be they a quick guest appearance in a movie or TV show by someone awesome (like Christopher Walken – damn if that man don’t just get better looking with age!) or the other type of cameo, the old school jewellery type normally associated with Victorian ladies from the 1500s or whenever. So you can imagine the kind of excited flip out I had when I discovered the Cathy’s Jewels shop on Etsy. Forget your boring old lady faced cameos and say hello to pirates and skull ‘n’ crossbones, plus a bunch of other cool designs in colours of all sorts (red, black, lime green – you name it!). And they are really cheap! Cathy also sells the settings for the cameos, so if you dig making your own jewellery this store is your bee hive.

Skulls, Vikings, and tortoise shell goodies

I was wandering through the city with a friend the other day, and happened past the windows of the Miss Louise store (205 Collins St, Melbourne thank-you very much) where I stumbled upon some very cool looking goodies in the form of sneakers, heels and a clutch purse or two. It seems that while the 50s are the next fashion revival, there’s room for fashion inspired by the Gods of Metal – Hell yeah!
