You are all amazing and wonderful and I am so pleased that I can do my part in helping you find pieces of clothing that you love. As a special thank you, I include a 35mm print of one of my cemetery photos in each order shipped out.

Disco Witch Sneek Peek

Here’s a little sneak peek at what I’ve been working on :: my new vintage shop, Disco Witch Vintage!

I have tons more to list, and plan on having a continuous stock of new items. Each piece has been hand picked by me, with various genres, sizes, and materials. I’m only stocking items that I would want in my own closet, and pieces that I would wear myself.

This past weekend was my thirty-third birthday, and I did a quick Tarot reading in the morning to see what the tone of my year would be. As expected, the cards illustrated not only the (slightly bittersweet) truth, but gave me the reassurance that things are very definitely moving right along in the direction that I want to be going. To me, the Tarot is a tool for guidance and meditation, something that can point out what you might already know, but may not want to fully accept. Nothing can tell the future, no portent or crystal ball has a map of what’s to come. What they can help you with is a nudge onto the right path, whether or not it’s something that you want to hear.




The individual breakdown of this reading is slightly unnerving, but together, the relationship between the cards is extremely uplifting and hopeful. This is a three card spread, with the cards representing The Past, The Present, and The Future.

The Past is represented by Temperance. Like her name says, she is the well balanced, peaceful, and calm. In her position in the past, she indicates that the foundation of this reading is that of once of equality and even dignity. It’s a positive card, and also one that says that I’ve kept a level head about things. Temperance also indicates a balance of two things that may not have wanted to play very nicely before, and that easing the two together over time will be beneficial and successful.

The Seven of Swords fell into the Present position. The seven is a tricky one :: it represents deception and a cunning thief, but simultaneously it can also indicate that crafty moves on your part are paying off. Either way, it’s an indication that there might be a bit of a disconnect with my perception of things and reality.

The Future is The Fool, the start and the end of the Tarot. He has his eyes closed at the edge of a cliff, and is the epitome of infinite possibilities. He is the Zero Card, an absolute of nothing and everything all at once. In this position, He can indicate the start of a new journey, a new life, with endless possibilities, but one must still be cautious not to fall off the cliff.

Combined, this reading absolutely elated me, and filled me with such a strong hope for my coming year. As I’ve mentioned in past posts, I’ve felt a bit stagnant over the past few months, and have been doing my damndest to pull myself up and out of it. The relationship between the cards all says  that my evolution must be taken with caution, and with moderation, and not allow my daydreams to get the best of me, especially when awakened into a reality that doesn’t match up. However, The Zero in my Future tells me that my work will pay off, and that I’ll be establishing, and walking, the path away from the traditional monotony that is driving me mad.

This year, my birthday coincided with the start of a Mercury Retrograde, and it’s such a loud scream in my face not to do anything drastic, but DO SOMETHING. Make the changes that I need for myself and for my own fulfillment, and take an active part in my own life, rather than just letting in slide by.

Happy Birthday, to me.

Thank you again, I’m so excited about all of this!

Retail Therapy

by Samantha ~ May 29th, 2014


My last post seemed a bit doom and gloom, didn’t it? That wasn’t my intention, although I have definitely been more than a little stuck-in-a-rut than I care to be over the past few months. I’m not going to delve into boring (and personal) details, but it means that I need to try to take on something new, and something I can throw myself into.

Recently, I read a book that I’ve seen posted all over the place since its release earlier this month. #GIRLBOSS is a  motivational memoir written by the founder & CEO of the online shop Nasty Gal, and despite it being geared towards girls in their early twenties, it hit home. I needed a change, or at least the start of a change, to pull myself out of the slump I’ve been in. And the only person that can make that change happen is me.

I’m starting a new experiment. For the past five plus years, I’ve been posting about clothing I like onto Haute Macabre, and it seems like there are a lot of you out there that agree with me. It’s half Shop My Closet, and it’s half Vintage finds. I’m still trying to come up with a clever name for it, but until that comes to me, you can find my new shop on eBay.

Click here to be taken to my sales! 


Here’s where you guys come in :: not just as potential customers, but as my tried and true loyal followers and friends, giving me your honest opinions. Tell me your thoughts on the items I’ve selected – should I stick to the goth guns, or does the mix up of retro and spookshow work? What do you look for in vintage shops? What type of photography is most appealing to you as a customer? Tell me all of your thoughts, as you’ve all always been my favorite focus group.

This batch of sales ends Tuesday of next week (that’s the third of June), and I would love to keep at this. If you can’t bid, please share with your friends, give me your feedback, or just check it all out!
