Old Pasadena, Pasadena, California, United States

Going to the Dark Side in Style

Pasadena is not the first city you think of when looking to shop couture goth. Halloween on not, I love Gold Bug's eclectic collection of art, jewelry, clothing and other oddities. This is a great place to shop if you don't want to do a full-on costume. Just accent a black dress with with creepy, high-fashion accessories like a diamond skull broach, an octopus necklace or fur fanny pack and you're good to go.

The last time I went, I picked up a ring utilizing the workings of vintage watch. Every time I wear it, I get loads of compliments.
