Living in southern California has its benefits. Mild weather, beautiful scenery, 24-hour taco shops. But finding stylish black apparel readily available in most clothing stores? Nearly impossible. Bars and hotels with a dark (but not campy) vibe? Not very many of those either. Home decor boutiques selling bat-themed damask wallpaper? Not so much.
Over the years, I’ve turned to the internet to seek out the best in fashion, decor, travel and art that embraces a dark, gothic-inspired aesthetic without being silly, campy or cartoonish. If you are drawn to all of these things like I am, hopefully my sharing this will save you hours of hunting the internet.
Welcome to my gloomy little corner of the internet!
