August 14, 2009


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!

You look absolutely beautiful in this get up - the headband is genius. Love it. You look like you have an invisible foot in one of the pics tee-hee.

Omg, i thought what's with the trash-looking package :D Very unexpected. i would say Eugenia's handywork is very out of the box, unique. 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!

p/s: Eugenia's blog is artistic. Thanks for sharing with us all.

Sweet voodoo doll in the making. gorgeous =)

You have such a beatiful look! I'm wondering how you do your make-up? What do you use and so on? Love your blog by the way, I'm a relative new reader bur I love it already!

Photo of Aliceee

It is amazing how well that braid matches your real hair!
But my favourite item has to be the earrings! They are amazingly cute!


Photo of Vina

this time i don't really agree with for using that boots. they're just.. don't get along with the other outfit i think. a little bit too high maybe?
i like your gifts. you are so lucky. :)

Photo of Tiffany

I love them all, especially the head peice! It looks really good with the red lips!

Photo of jules

I love the necklace!

Photo of M.E.

Love the accessories. And I've been on the fence about open-toed boots for fall. You've convinced me. I'll be rockin them with a dress. Time to get shopping!

Photo of Emily

That necklace looks so dainty and delicate yet ferociously painful!
You are picture perfect Jane, and I hope your style will carry on evolving and growing, as yours is by far the best blog I have stumbled across...

Photo of Jess

Photo of hanna

Photo of Slegna

Love love that headband. It just sits well on your hair! Perfect casual outfit, made me smile!

Photo of Andrew J

Really cool spiked necklace. Not going to lie though loved the headband until I read what it was made of and then it kinda freaked me out a little lol. Still looks bomb on you though. Have fun in LA and NYC!

Once again, you look gorgeous. How you manage to sport an oversized button down shirt with distressed denim and those shoes is beyond me, but you look wonderful. And your blog is just inspiring, and makes someone want to go out there, and chases their dreams. Those handmade creations from Eugenia are enchanting, and seems like they hold a bit of legend in them. (: The headband is divine.
If you have the time, I have a blog as well.

I like this look! Very simple and elegant. :)
