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!

Fringed Laced Angels, Chained and Gone

Landing to assess the situation

Tiny old flames were involved.

By letting go of struggles she was able

to dissolve those chains once more.

Then carefully repeating what they chanted

she stormed out and then woke up.

A beautiful long, dreamy, flowy gown with a message. It comes with two different versions for the skirt. The one picture and one with slightly more grandeur. The latter would make a perfect wedding dress. The bodice is applier based and it comes with flexi attachments to add a bit of rhythmical movement and an otherworldly air.
