VDAY

Happy Valentine's Day! It's very gloomy and wet outside, so the gothic dress and black lace is super appropriate for such a subversive occasion. Perfect for casting witchy love spells and burning Dragon's Blood incense, right?

My neon + black lace legs are sort of channeling an "Edward Gorey-on-hallucinogens" vibe, which is weird but then again, aren't all Hallmark holidays weird enough?
Here are some of my favourite valentine-y cards I've gathered from around the interwebs. And if you want to reminisce, last year's V-Day post was a badass one!

Hah! Oh my god, that wrestling V-Day card.

Channeling Edward Gorey is a good idea more often than not.

Oh my goodness, total flashback to first grade when I saw the Rock valentine. I know I received that card at one point in time. And had no idea what it was referring to.
