Welcome Corporette Readers

I am guest blogging at Corporette today.  If this is your first time here, these are some links that may also interest you:

  • Skull jewelry that you can wear anywhere (including the most uptight office) — Wendy Brandes’s Memento Mori skulls in silver and gold.
  • Why would someone ever chose the goth lifestyle?  Check out The Ultimate Goth Guide’s take.  I couldn’t have said it better.
  • My favorite artist, Amy Wilson.
  • I’ve been without electricity since Saturday.  Like my pal, The Goth Professor, I normally only shop at Yankee Candle for goth, Halloween, and spooky stuff.  As it turns out, it is also a great place to pick up candles (just regular candles to use to light your dwelling during a week-long power outage).
  • Tiny Top Hat Tip to Law and Shoes whose post on gray hair made me start thinking about whether gray is okay.
  • The NYT thinks there is hope that bright colored hair will be accepted at the office.  I hope they are right.

  1. Darling, you’re just too cool! As always, thank you for the mention. We finally got our power back on Tuesday night; and like you, my Yankee Candle stash saw me through the darkness. I have to admit, the delicious smells of Witches’ Brew and Frosted Pumpkin, and the glittering candlelight make the power outage so much more bearable. Or maybe it was the bottle of wine? hehehe …

    Hope you get power soon, dear friend. I’m thinking about you!

  2. Great post on Corporette. I am excited to read more of your posts.

  3. One of these days I will go platinum – still playing around the edges for the moment though. Keep encouraging me with your fabulous posts, links and outfits Ms Siouxsie. Kudos for blogging through natural disasters and probably looking amazing while doing so. Thank you for the blog link x

  4. Thanks so much for the link!

  5. Siouxsie, I just read your post over at Corporette regarding women and grey hair. At 39 my head is covered with grey and white hair — I’ve inherited my Mom’s silvery-white strands. I’ve been dying my hair a multitude of colors since I was 15 and really didn’t know what it looked like under all that dye until I chopped it all off and let myself go “natural.” Needless to say, I am more silver than I am red-blonde … so back to black I went.

    I’ve been considering letting my hair go all grey for some time, but can’t seem to let myself do it. Maybe I’m still stuck on the goth aesthetic of a head full of raven locks? Or maybe I’m just not comfortable with my grey? Perhaps the truth lies somewhere in between the two. I do have two wonderfully white streaks close to my face, on the side of my head. Perhaps I’ll start growing those out and see what happens.

    In academia woman do have grey and white hair. It’s a sign of intelligence and distinction. Actually, it’s relatively rare for an academic woman to continuously dye her hair to completely cover the grey. Sure, they may highlight it but there’s always some grey or white. I noticed this the last College Art Association conference I was at — I was floored by how many women had sassy hair cut that highlighted their white or grey hair. They were it with pride.

    Am I going to be expected to go all grey? I don’t know. Like I said, maybe I’ll start with my sides and work from there.
