Allons​ Enfants!

I know, my clothing today has nothing to do with the title and I´m the first to admit it. I actually tried – very hard – to ignore July 14th, 2017 to the best of my abilities.

I did not want to feel the void that the passing of the only French born relative I had in the Americas had recently left in me. We had always celebrated Bastille Day together. For most of the day, I succeeded at dismissing it. Until I couldn’t …

The celebration across the street is still in full swing, even as we speak. Living in a very particular part of town, it is happy and cheerful; peppered with the occasional shout … ¨Vive La France¨.

It does hurt. I no longer have her by my side singing ¨The Marsaillaise¨ today, but then again her values, her dignity and those of our beloved France continue to live on in my heart, in my mind and in my deepest HOPES. Spread them around:

Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité!

An Angel in a Boudoir by the Pool

Her search for Light took place inside,

and in that Light that gifted peace,

– although elusive –

the feel was free.

The Princess Dark

In order to become whole it was a must that she embraced her dark side;

we all have one, they said.

Look at it in the eye and harness it to your will.

Never ignore it.

Style Info

I really enjoyed styling and wearing this medieval fantasy inspired gown.  Although there is a Pretty Princess version from the same brand,  I decided to style the dark one.

This is a strapless, ruffled, cropped top, paired with a royal full skirt that folds over itself on the riveted mid-sides.

The gown comes with a color and print change HUD that makes it quite versatile. This feature allowed me to match it, almost perfectly, to the head piece I´m wearing and which belongs to another maker and to another time.

The finishing touch comes in the form of a charm necklace and bracelet that reflect the event´s theme.

The build acts as a great photography prop. It is full perm and comes without poses.
