We love rainy days, and we love the #stormyskies earrings by @hollybobisuthi. Check out our instastories for their (quite literally) awesome size-to-scale !

TONIGHT ! Opening reception for Blackmail founder Gail Chovan's art show NO TRACE OF NOW WILL REMAIN at Women & Their Work Gallery, 7-9 pm. Inspired by the writings of Rimbaud and Victorian mourning attire, Gail Chovan gives exaggerated form to the long-deceased by adorning apparitions in hyper stylized garments and accessories from the past. Chovan uses fragments and fabrication to enshroud memories, gives form to absence, and celebrates remnants as potent vehicles for resuscitation. The show will be up until March 1. @gailchovanatelier @womenandtheirwork #womenartists #victorian
Time - He's waiting in the wings He speaks of senseless things His script is you and me, boys. . Happy Birthday #davidbowie 🖤💀

Know someone with extraordinary #hair that deserves to be revered and cherished ? This #hairpin by @hollybobisuthi is fit for a queen. And @riddle_oil can be applied to hair too ! Not just for skin !! I like to roll a bit onto the palm of my hand and glide through my hair before putting it up. When I take my hair down it smells GLORIOUS. This pair would make an utterly thoughtful gift...... . . . . #hair #hairpin #hairaccessories #metalwork #artisan #christmaspresent #christmasshopping #uniquegifts #soco #atx #darkfashion #austin
I'd be remiss to not include my personal choices for the women folk 💀. BLACKMAIL is obvious. @riddle_oil #santal is rich and earthy with cardamom notes on top of a sandalwood base, while #nightflower is a bouquet of white floral. If you like the idea of white flowers (such as #jasmine ) but yearn for something less femme, then @thesum.us #thegold is your juice. A personal favorite, it's jasmine sits in a darker temptress of clove oil and dirt. Speaking of dirt--there is the utterly unique #fieldsofrubus from #kerosenefragrances that smells of crushed raspberry and plum on a green marshy forest floor. It's the true scent of fairies. In a good way. And lastly there is The Sum's The Red which is a refined amber and sandalwood mix with a note of saffron which takes it to the next level of dark chic. Two of the coolest women I know own The Red, so that speaks for itself ! . . . . #fragrance #perfume #christmaspresent #christmasshopping #atx #soco #womensfragrance #uniquefragrance
Want your dude to smell better and decidedly NOT like a middle school dance ? Here at blackmail we're firm believers that all #fragrance can be #unisex -- but we know not all guys are up for that challenge. These are some of our best selling fragrances for men (plus the newest #canfeildcedar for good measure). @thesum.us the black smells rather enchantingly of wet river rocks, while their the mauve has a hint of lavender that takes it into a classically masculine arena, with black tea keeping it unique. Our BLACKMAIL's smoky amber haze sells equally well to men and women. And #woodhaven and Canfield Cedar are both deemed to be woody classics (wood haven has a fresh citrus aura from its top notes, while Canfield has a hint of rich tobacco at its base). . . . . #christmas #christmaspresent #fragrance #mensfragrance #perfume #cologne #kerosenefragrances #allblack #darkfashion
