Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Killer Shoes

Before I hit the sack, let me just share you what dropped my jaw tonight -- Alexander McQueen's killer shoes. They scream fierce, I have to say. It's just that I can't imagine myself on them. They're way beyond my character. I was loitering at Polyvore's site, and saw the link to McQueen's expensive fashion collections. No wonder about that cause AMQ is owned by the Gucci Group. I also searched for its Facebook Page, and there I found these ferocious shoe finds. I have seen some of his designs being worn by Laureen Uy, but I never knew about his shoe collection. Now that I've seen it, I'm truly in awe. I just have to look at it, cause I know I can never afford it. Well, who knows right? Check these out, fellas!

Alexander McQueen's style are Avant-garde, Eccentric/Whimsical, Especially Detailed, High Fashion, Red Carpet. That explain why it's really costly. I've read irom some articles that Lady Gaga used Alexander McQueen shoes in one of her music videos. I guess the superstar have really seen her unique fashion sense from AMQ's one of a kind shoe line. What more can I say about these shoes? They look painful, but I think it's worth it. Let me share you this passage that the celebrated designer said in Harper's Bazaare, "I'm interested in designing for posterity. People who buy McQueen are going to hand the clothes down to their children, and that's very rare today."

According to New York Fashion Magazine, McQueen was found dead in his London apartment in February 2010, and the cause of death was suicide. May he rest in peace.

If I'm not mistaken, Lady Gaga wore AMQ's lobster claw shoes in her music video, Bad Romance. It's just sad to know how Alexander McQueen's life ended :(

@Lav and Ms. Z: You're both right, he may be dead but his fashion legend lives on.

omg! hmmm. even if I want to wear those shoes I don't know what to wear it with. it just steals the whole attention from the outfit/clothing itself. Something you can wear maybe even when you're naked? lol. love it though from bad romance. :) lady gaga's the best model for it I think because her personality, matches with the shoes. :)

Tama ka dyan! I think those shoes are really made to be worn even when you're naked. Haha It provides the outfit for itself. Kudos to the makers! :-D
