Devil's Backbone




Some dark clouds have invaded my life's sky lately, so blogging hasn't been a tempting option. I've had too much on my mind, including various  work-related projects and some ill news from Frau Doktor. Sickness is never a merry nor a welcomed guest, but it's funny how it reminds us that we're not invulnerable superheroes. I'd sure love to be one, though.


So now I'm on my very first sick leave and will be for the rest of this week, then it's back to the thesis with me! Six summers I've wandered the isles of the boneyard, picking dead petals and brushing the dirt and cobwebs off the tombstones, descended six feet under and hid the bony parts that rise from the times gone by. I know that cemetery by heart, and I even know where the Ghoul-Gate is (if you've ever read Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book then you know what I'm talking about. :> I tried reciting the magic words but it didn't work..!). 



I've had my share of the cold grounds and I very much doubt there'll be a seventh summer, so I got myself a little farewell present!  Something I've wanted for quite some time. :) These are copies of the gorgeous Dsquared2 spine shoes, I always prefer buying the genuine designs but I don't know how anyone could afford the original ones, so copies it is. Today I'm dragging my bony heels back to my own home, I feel like I could dwell in a coma for about a month. Goodbye, boneyard.

  1. Toivottavasti sairautesi ei ole mitään kamalan vakavaa ja että paranet pian!

    Ihanat nuo kengät kyllä ovat, vaikken itse jaksaisi noin helposti tarttuvia korkoja :D Asusikin on tosi söpö, ihanat shukat ♥

    1. Kiitoksia! Aika optimistisesti yritän tuloksia odotella. :) Ja kiitos asukehuistakin, pakko kyllä myöntää että korot tarttuu yllättävän helposti ja ärsyttävästi karvamattoihin ja muuhun ympäristöön. :D

  2. Hahaa olen lukenut kirjan, itseasiassa ihan vastikään (olipa ihana) ja tuo ghouliportti nauratti kovasti xD Ehkä sanoit sanat jotenkin väärällä tavalla, koska Eikkukin kovasti opetteli lausumaan sanat tietyllä tavalla.. Ihanat kengät <3

  6. I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling quite yourself, being under the weather is never fun, when I'm ill I don't even feel like blogging so at least you made it onto the camera and looking beautiful as usual! I adore those shoes, I've seen them on Bones and Lilies blog and they're just too dreamy! I am useless at walking in heels but they would make an awesome ornament with their creepylicious spiny heels! Definitely a conversation piece!

    I just recently came across some amazing Alien/Giger heels on Etsy which you might like to look at - http://www.etsy.com/listing/105343206/alien-giger-heels-custom-handpainted?ref=sr_gallery_8&ga_search_query=alien+heels&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_min=0&ga_max=0&ga_search_type=all

    Aren't they awesome?! ~♥~

    1. Oh thanks so much! It's true that blogging isn't in the top of the to-do list when you're ill, and bloggers shouldn't even feel guilty about that. Health always comes first!

      I've seen these spine heels around the internet too, and they were too dreamy to miss out. They're pretty comfy too, so you might be able to walk in them even if you're not too used on high heels! And the Alien heels are supercoool! Great idea! ^^

  13. You presume to be stylish but you're always copying other people's blogs. For example, you copied that shoes from Evil Fate Eternity blog...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wait, what? :D I know many wonderful people who own these shoes, but I'm hardly a copycat if I'm inspired by the same design, a design that I spotted about two years ago. It's impossible in the mainstream and the goth world alike to always have completely unique clothing, the important thing is that it fits your own personality. :) I'm sure we all get inspired by different sources!

    2. Wow, Anon, you must be quite a special little snowflake if you anly like things that have never been done before. o.O

      I can't believe the nerve of some people, seriously... Please don't let stupidity get you down, you are wonderfully creative and have exactly the right attitude about this remarkably dumb comment. I hope your health gets better very soon. Wishing you all the best. :)

    3. Anon you are being super rude.:/ Many people have these same shoes.And let's say she had seen these shoes in Insanity's blog and fallen in love of these shoes.So?What's your point anyways?If somebody likes the same things it doesn't make anybody a copycat.I think your intension was just to be mean and disrespectful.Well you succeeded.Gongarats!

    1. Voi kiitos paljon! Ja eihän sarjatuotettuja vaatteita/kenkiä tietenkään saa kukaan ostaa. ;) Huvittaa vaan välillä tämä naisten hysteria (usein erittäin väärin oletetun) matkimisen suhteen, ei mua ainakaan itketä yhtään että 100 muulla naisella on samat Minna Parikat tai Pennangalanit, eihän sillä ole mitään väliä. Eri asia tietysti ihmiset jotka alkaa kopioida koko elämää, kun niitäkin raukkoja on, mutta on se kamalaa jos on samat kengät, hui. :D

    1. Thank you so much, I hope so too! Health is super important and it draws most of my energy and attention right now, I hope I'll come back to blogging soon.
      And I by no means intended to "copy" other bloggers, these replicas caught my attention before I even saw them on anyone, but just bought them much later. And I don't mind at all that many bloggers have the same ones! :)

  25. I can certainly understand taking a break from blogging to focus on health. It is essential!

    I have admired those shoes for years, but alas I cannot walk in heels.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It truly is, but it suprises me how many people don't understand that. Well, at least in my books health comes before blogging. :)

      The shoes are really high but the hidden platform helps a lot! I think they're quite comfy to walk in, they might even suit people who aren't used to wearing high heels.

  27. You are so amazingly beautiful! And the shoes are fabulous. But I want to ask about those heels... are they sturdy? Because to me they seem so fragile that if I would put those shoes on and started to walk I would fear that they break! :D

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! The heels haven't snapped yet and they feel sturdy enough, but they get easily stuck on things. Especially furry carpets and such :D

  30. Hei!

    Löysin vasta tänään blogisi ja jäin heti koukkuun. Olen tässä viimeiset 3 tuntia lukenut postauksiasi. Mahtava blogi !
    Nämä kengät nähdessäni jäin vain kuvia tuijottamaan mitään sanomatta. UPEAT.
    Ajattelin tilata itselleni samanlaiset. Minkä kokoinen jalka sinulla on? Itselläni korkokengissä on 36/37, kannattaako tilata mieluummin pienemmät vai kuinka tiukat nuo ovat?

    Toivottavasti paranet pian !!

    1. Oi ihana kuulla, kiitos! Haleja takaisin ^.^

      Mun kengänkoko on tarkalleen 37,5, mutta yleensä käytän nilkkureissa ja saappaissa kokoa 38. Nämä kengät jäi vähän väljiksi kun arvelin että 37 olisi liian nafti, mutta pohjallisen avulla ovat sopivat. :)

  31. I really love your blog... really, it's fabulous, you're gorgeous and your style... terrific!

    I'm changing my wardrobe into black, white and other dark shades, a long process but satisfactory (I haven't had the opportunity because of my job, but now is the momento to be who I want to be), and you inspire me A LOT.

  32. Hello. Love your blog immensely!
    You wrote that you ordered the shoes from Arrogant Minnie? How long did you have to wait for the parcel to arrive? I myself placed an order on an other pair of shoes from there. It seems that my parcel got stuck in a postal centre in China.
    I live in Sweden so I guess it wont be such a big difference on the shipment time.

    I would be very happy if you could find the time to answer and maybe calm down my nerves and worries.

    Love // a devoted reader!

    1. Hi there! And thank you, so glad to hear you like this blog! ^^

      My shoes arrived in about 2-3 weeks, I thought it would take much longer so I was a bit surprised. Sometimes the parcels from China can get stuck somewhere but most of them arrive eventually. If there's no sign of your package within a month, you should probably contact the shop for further inquiries. And if you paid with PayPal then there's an insurance on your shoes and you'll probably get a refund. But I'm sure your shoes will arrive safely in Sweden, don't you worry! :)

  34. First of all ... your Blog is great! Actually it's the only Blog that I consistently read! ;) And if you wonder why I'm posting this comment in such an old blog entry ... it's because i have a question about your shoes! I totally fell in love with them when i first saw them, but since I'm kinda tall i just wasn't sure if i should order a pair! But now I decided to order them, and since you are the only person I "know" (not actually but i hope you understand what i mean ^^) who ordered shoes from arrogantminnie.com I just have to ask you if their shoes are tailored rather small, big or normal? I really hope that you can find some time to answer my question and i also hope that my English is understandable! :) have a nice day!
