It doesn’t have to be Halloween to try on something scary. I recently ran across a great little shop of horrors that sells inspired items in the vein of Tim Burton-style creepiness. The store is Shadow things. So, for the days when I’m feeling ghoulish, I wear my broken boy skin that appears to be made of damaged porcelain. I paired this with some clean-cut items from other stores, including a nice black shirt from Fireflies , charcoal Southern Comfort pants from Casa Del Shai, a black tie from The Good Life , a gold cross wrist cuff from M.R.M Factory and black desert boots from Maitreya . I decided to create contrast within the look with my favorite fedora, The Fed, from The Hat Shop.

I have always struggled to give a straightforward answer whenever someone asked me about my style. I love punk but will never venture into spiky accessories. I like sexy but not too revealing. I am also chic, sleek and at times preppy. Really! I don’t have a fixed style and I wear what I feel comfortable in.

This week, in my last blog post with EFA, I thought I’d put together a few ensembles and let you be the judge.

Final - Dresses


I applaud Sandy Clymer’s (Pillow Talk’s creator) courage and positive attitude towards handling her surgery. She refers to removing a huge tumor in her brain as a “lil” surgery. Before Sandy logged off , she made sure that assistance continues to be available for her customers. I especially like her last notice that says “keep me alive guys. I will see you again soon ;)”. It’s full of hope and life; and Sandy has chosen to continue to put a smile on her face instead of crying over her misfortune.

Inspired by Sandy, I have put together this outfit to make that statement. The key piece of this ensemble is a white Emery tank top that shouts “Choose Life”. I paired the top with a black and white stripy shirt and layered black tights. Then, I accessorized it with a wood beaded bracelet, as well as a brown leather necklace that comes with a surfboard pendant.

Lastly, I completed the look with a brown scarf (comes with curly hair) and a pair of white/silver heel.

As I conclude this article, a group notice from Sally came in and I love this one even more. It says “*surgery results* Ninty five to ninty eight percent of tumor removed. Cancerous but contained in brain. Treatable, so I can live a long strong minded live. Life is sweet to me ;)”

Welcome back Sandy!! I, too, feel alive and ready to play.
