This is some ah-maze-ing dresses by Amato Haute Couture . I have never heard of this designer until I saw this on Haute Macabre. Turns out they are out of Dubai and only do couture gowns, but really they need to move their ass to Paris and sign up (it’s like signing up for a badminton team, right?) to be part of Couture week there. I see some Gaultier and Givenchy in the dresses, but it’s still uniquely gorgeous. And nude is my new favorite color- It’s like only you’re lady parts are covered in jewels and the lace. I also like how the dangling baby makes for a sprinkle of madness. Anyway, I am totally going to keep Amato on my radar.

nOir jewelry and DC Comics have joined forces together to bring you jewels from Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman. These are not  your Cracker Jack box trinkets, but jewels made of gold and Cubic Zirconia. I’m a big fan of CZ, by the way. It’s like champagne looks for beer prices. Anywho, my fave is naturally the Catwoman claws. I have three rings similar to in that I wear when I’m venturing out into unchartered, sketchy territories such as my beauty shop in South Central LA.  The Gotham ring is pretty rad, too. nOir also has a  gold Brooklyn Bridge ring on their site. I like all of them, except when are they going to make  jewelry inspired by the James Bond girls? That I would die over!

The guy that writes the blog Swallow Glitter made these impressive gloves! It’s definitely like “Edward Scissorhands”, as Outsapop says. It’s like like every piece of broken jewelry  and hardware on a leather glove. And it’s brilliant! I’d wear those gloves if I was roaming a sketchy neighborhood. I’d be flashing my hands like ‘jazz hands‘ to any one suspicious. Which brings me to this story… once I had to go to this beauty store in South Central LA because it was the only shop that carried human hair in my shade of Bozo the Clown red. So, I walk in and the guy behind the counter was spooked and there were 2 cops asking him questions. Already I was like, crap! So, I go in take my merchandise faster than you can say “bitchdonttouchmyweave.” Apparently, a transvestite with a gun  dressed to the nines in broad daylight robbed stole shipments of human hair. The f*uck? No cash, JUST HAIR! HAhahahahaah! I thought that was amusing. Anyway, I’d wear these on my next trip to that beauty store.

Goodness Gracious! These gowns are to die for … Seriously, Marchesa needs to pack up and move to Paris because that is where they belong- amongst the incredible haute couture houses of our time. Let’s start with the stunning shoulder/neck jewelry on some of the dresses. I love love love the glitz and glamour it lends that only the 1930s did so well ( I also love jewelry built into a dress). Each gown’s hue is so delicate and reminiscent of an elegant ballerina ( we also saw that at Dennis Bosso– definitely the movie  Black Swan is in the air). I’m especially digging the nude and lace gown- some of these gowns remind me of Dior and John Galliano’s couture line over the past couple seasons and also Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture lines from several seasons ago. Identical silhouettes and soft, feminine fabrics- but always flattering on any woman.Anyone who brings on the glamour is A-ok in my book! Yay, Marchesa!!
