The Way of the Fae

Was it a Dream?

I swear there's more magic than we can imagine.  The fae: How I love them, how they fascinate me, even though I know they are not the sweet harmless creatures of fairy tales.  So recently, during a bout of the flu, I had an encounter with this lovely star-clad fae.  She lounged among the stars, and reaching to me I felt as if cool water slid over my skin, and as the soothing coolness quenched my fever I simply curled up under a mossy tree and fell asleep.  That's where my family found me, and they fussed and carried on.  But the funny thing is, the fever was gone, after days of battling the virus.  I like to think it was the fae.  

This magical star suit is from E.V.E. and it is featured at FameshedX (like Fameshed, only naughty) until February 14.  I'm wearing it over a body suit, but you can skip that part and just be your star-clad self!  Bring on the magic!

Mechanical Heart

She Had Not Expected This

Mechanical Heart by Beth Hart - click HERE

As he walked away from her for the last time she stood, stunned, confused.  This was not supposed to hurt, after all they had removed her heart, so why, why did it hurt so much to see the back of him?  She had been assigned, a month ago, to terminate this man.  Yet, here she stood as she let him walk, having sent him away.  She could see his anger and his hurt in the set of his shoulders, the way he walked.  She had expected that, after all, he was wholly human.  But what she couldn't explain was the pain that seemed to fill that space where the mechanical heart hummed, thrummed and ticked.  She turned, and walked back into the shadows. 

Eclipse has chosen as the theme "October Never Dies".  An event filled with those shadowy, dark fashions, and items that we all love.  

Lelutka has released three new heads.  I decided to try "Aida" and I have to say it's a beautiful head.

the Dance...


The turning of the year, as one season yields to another.  Spring steps onto the floor of the ballroom and, throwing her arms back, body arched, sweetly vulnerable, she whispers to Lord Winter, "Come dance, m'Lord."  He cannot resist the invitation, and they begin.  The music at first crystalline, icy, the chiming of silver, the whistle of wind, the whispers of snow flakes.  As they dance there are subtle changes; snowdrops, hellebore, shy lavender and golden crocus begin to appear at the edges of snow drifts, emerge in sheltered spots of the woods.  The music changes, softens, the wind no longer whistles, but hums soft awakening songs, the liquid sound of water as it slides along stream beds trickles down tree branches, the soothing patter of rain drops.  It sings the ancient songs of awakening, as new life joins in the dance.  Soon Lord Winter yields to the Lady Spring, and with a bow, and a swirl of his cloak, he slips away to those always cold places, looking toward the day when he will call the Lady Autumn to another dance.  

Or at lease that's how I imagine it.  Become the personification of Spring in this glorious gown from irrISIStible, currently at SWANK.  I'm sure your dance card will be filled.

You've Had a Long Day

Come Join Me

It had been a long week for the both of them.  The stress of their careers sometimes took it's toll on them, as they got snappish and didn't make time for each other.  She was determined, tonight would be different.  She had arrived home early, showered, did all the spa stuff with lotions and potions and scents and creams and slipped into this little suggestion of a dress.  She poured his favorite wine, lit the candles and waited.  He came through the door, dropping keys on the hallway table, she could hear him put his briefcase on the desk in the study, and the slide of silk as he pulled his tie free from his shirt collar, and then he was at the door.  He paused, a moment of silence and then that long woosh of air as he let that breath go.  A slow smile curved her lips as she crooned softly, "Won't you join me?"  

This gorgeous slip of a dress is available at the Original Vogue Event, but hurry, the event ends on the 15th!

She's a Rainbow

She Comes in Colors

You may have concluded that I am pretty much a pink, flowers, fairy, magic, bohemian, sort of gal.  I find such beauty in those sorts of things, and they represent a certain kind of personal freedom to me.  I always struggle when I am given a tattoo to blog or photograph.  How do you truly show off the tattoo and not make it an accessory?  It's gotten me into trouble in the past, as people objected to the amount of skin, even though I'm very careful about being sure all the essentials are covered.  This tattoo, by Juna, available at a discount at SWANK, is so lovely that all I could do was let my imagination loose, and voila!  It made me want to dance, and sway and a rainbow!

At the end of the day

A Place of Refuge

The day was long, and stressful.  There were deadlines, and budgets, and disagreements.  In the end, it's good to have a place that's just yours, were you can close the door, and the world falls away.  You can create that space with this gorgeous library set from Outside the Box!  There is such loving attention to detail, while still leaving a bit of space to make it your own.  Currently at SWANK!  (Where we're celebrating the new year till the end of the month!)
