I got the coolest package in the mail yesterday.

It was from one of my favorite bloggers, Eugenia Semjonova, the genius behind one of my favorite blogs out there, Doom.
Eugenia has, for very sound and understandable reasons, stopped blogging at Doom. 
R.I.P. Doom, I’m gonna miss you a lot…you were so right about so many things.
 At least you can haunt the Doom archives, living as a ghost in the Doomed world.

Eugenia has some awesome projects going on-she tells me she is currently on tour and has a children’s CD out and an Italo-disco album in the works. Sounds like a blast and I can’t wait to hear more!

The package itself was almost as exciting as its contents.

In the package were various adornments that Eugenia has handmade.

They all look like they possess some kind of magical power, right?
Eugenia also did this amazing picture of me!! Love it soo much! 
Today I wore two of these special gifts, the spiked necklace & the flowered braid made of natural blond human hair.
Worn with a very old men’s chambray shirt, Hysteric Glamour jeans, and my Martin Margiela sandal boots.
Thank you for your beautiful gifts Eugenia, and thank you for sharing the power of Doom. Best of luck in all of your ventures.
Good night all, I have to wake up early tomorrow-I’ll be spending a few days in Los Angeles and New York over the next week and a half. I apologize if my posts become sporadic during this time, but I will try to keep you updated!
xo Jane

    Holy shit I was just thinking when you were going to wear the Margiela open-toe boots again! I’ve got them in pastel purple and I’m always dumbfounded as to how to wear them. You, on the otherhand, always look amazing. This has to be my favourite outfit from you: simple, elegant, and with twist. Keep up the awesome work Jane!
    P.s. have a look at my blog, I’ve just started, going to do a post about the aforementioned boot soon.

  42. Your looks and stature allow you to be so versatile in how you dress, that I believe you can pull off any ensemble! Hippie/boho chic one day, 80s glam the other…impressive.
    I’m wondering what those spikes are made from…metal…plastic…real thorns? I am wowed by these gifts of Doom!
    Your MM boots are killer. I have black MM “ovine wedges” that I’m currently wearing with nearly everything! My blog fans might get tired of seeing them, I’m afraid!
    The photo of you putting on the boots: Something about the scale, maybe it’s the short door frame to the right…plus angle of the shoot…anyway, it’s quite eye-catching. :)

Not sure whether i like it BUT it is really one of a kind. That headband with human hair gave a fairytale effect. Luckily you are able to match it with a suitable outfit and as usual, the boots overwrites everything. Boldness!
