Polyvore Amour

One of Betty Bones’ blog followers who has a fun blog called Bel Amour uses a really cool space called Polyvore. I just set up a membership because I want to play with it. I hope you’ll visit me there. I am far from talented with coming up with good style as you can see by my plain fashion sense. But I really like to see what others are thinking.

See my profile at Polyvore!

This is the first “set” I created. I don’t know what I’m doing!

Etsy - It’s a Swindle

I don’t really understand the naming of the store, because It’s a Swindle Accessories Etsy Shop is anything but a swindle.

My favorite is this skeleton hand pendant and companion bony hair barrettes.

It's A Swindle Accessories is a MySpace friend of the Jitterbutter girl monsters. She’s a one woman operation and all items are hand made in her own personal sweat shop.
She makes all sorts of strange and cool items.

Who wouldn’t want this happy skull bracelet?

If the above linked items are gone, you can find more of her stuff at her Etsy store. Tell her DeMononica sent you :)
Betty Bones is going to LOVE this!

Mirror, mirror, shut your mouth

Don’t ask the mirror to tell you if you are beautiful. You probably are, and you're just looking at the wrong side. Don’t let your self-image be victimized because you are paying too much attention to the wrong side of your reflection.

Read this article carefully, and maybe you’ll figure out that what you see is not what others see… for reasons I never heard of, but make a whole lot of sense.

Fire eating = no calories

Lady Aye, performer, fire eater! Picture by Ted D'Ottavio

Wow, I love this stuff! This is what I call style. A MySpace friend, NYC’s Lady Aye (pronounced “eye” like a pirate) has performances all the time.
Maybe if you make it out to a show you’ll see me there in the dark corners in the back. If you meet her, tell her DeMonica says hi.

“The Lady Aye keeps herself busy on stage as a fire eater, sword swallower, and emcee; and off stage as a noted burlesque producer and writer. Named by the Village Voice 2006 Best of New York issue an "up and coming burlesque babe", she has also appeared on "Gossip Girl", performs with The Pyrate Sisters All-Girl Sideshow and Lady Circus, and holds the unique distinction of being the world's only Jewish female sword swallower.”

See Lady Aye at her MySpace page.

See her at Lady Circus! where you can find out about her upcoming events.
Incredible photo gallery here.

The lip gloss finger pop!

Too much lip gloss making you look like a gooey mess?
The finger pop! Why didn’t I think of that???

Probably because I associate fingers with tasty appetizers. I don’t want to end up eating my fingers :P

Squarey Monsters

The Squarey Monster, Donk is my favorite.

And, now for something completely different ;)

Another end of the style spectrum. This site just launched, and I think the monsters there are just adorable. All designed based on squares, they’re call Squarey Monsters!

And they have a store :)

Check out this guy!

Build your wild self

LOL Lovely! A friend sent this link to me. The New York Zoos and Aquarium Wildlife Conservation Society has set up so you can make a collage animal version of yourself. It sounds corny, but it's actually amazingly hilarious.

Go ahead, and BuiLD YouR WiLD SeLF

Modern boutique with a vintage touch

Mai Ruche

I don’t want people to get the wrong idea about me, or assume they know my position on style. Just because I like the Goth look does’t mean I claim to be Goth. I put a link to a good source of Goth clothing in my last post, but I’d hate to be pigeon-holed into one particular style. I like styles that reach out in many directions like solar flares from the sun… but I hate the sun.
To demonstrate my meaning, I’m posting today about boutique owner / wardrobe stylist, Mai Ruche. I found this link at, and want to share it with you. Read into it what you will. I wouldn’t wear most of these clothes, but I can appreciate all of it for how cool it looks. The Fashion Time Magazine does a great short interview with Mai that gives great insight into her approach and her motivation.

Click here for her shop where you’ll find cute accessories and dresses. I like her shoes too.
My favorite dress is this one.

You can also read her bog to see what’s new.

The future is futur

Futurstate is a great place to find some good goth and electro fashions. 
You can find some rare items that make you stand out and blend into the darkness at the same time. I prefer a hint of color somewhere, but I suppose that’s what hair is for. They have decent prices, so give a peek.
I think they need a new boy model. This one is obviously a wax figure who never changes his expression.
