On this rainy, dreary day I couldn't help but share some amazingly dark and graceful pictures by Alex Sainsbury for British designer Dominic Jones' new Fall 2012 campaign. Jones is not only a talented jeweler, but acclaimed and awarded for his distinct designs. In this new ad run, actress Jessica Brown Findlay from the British series Downton Abbey, poses alongside model and DJ Mary Charteris.
Talk about a haunting mood setter! Love it! Is the sun coming out now? Seriously?

I just love the way Edward Gorey's illustrations and books combine the innocence of childhood with dark Victorian settings and morbid and ominous tones. His numerous books and illustrations, which he happens to categorize as literary nonsense, have inspired the works of Tim Burton, Nine Inch Nails, the Tiger Lillies and of course, us here at Blackbird!

Looking for the perfect way to say I love you to your delightfully warped sweetheart? Need the perfect dress for a night of mischief making? Indifferent to Valentine's Day but like to save a buck? If the answer to any or all of these questions is yes, or even maybe, get thee to Blackbird this weekend!
