Fairy Outfit for Work

My apologies for not posting anything since the 3rd.  I've been running around like a mad thing, working overtime and then cavorting madly about all night with my fans going home to do my laundry, then crawl into bed.  And I'm still going to Clearlake every other weekend to visit my mom in the nursing center and take care of her house and bills.  I'm hoping someday she will finally get to go home, and I won't have to do this forever.  Anyway...

A lovely friend in Wales sent me a box of gothic goodies a few years ago, and inside it there was a GORGEOUS purple/black tunic-style top with pointy bits trailing from the sleeves and hem, and lots of beads and sequins all over it.  (Think of Stevie Nicks as a fairy.)  I adore this top, but I haven't ever worn it because "I have nowhere to wear it".  Yesterday I thought to myself, SCREW this, I'm going to wear it to work!  So I did, with a pair of plain black leggings and a pair of black leather heeled booties with silver buckles.  I look like a Dark Fairy!  :-) 

Unfortunately, my throwaway camera is full, and I don't have a new one yet, so you'll have to wait for a photo.  But rest assured, I would do Stevie Nicks proud... 

In the meantime, here is a lovely picture of a fairy for your viewing pleasure!

  1. I used to be involved with monthly full-moon rituals and a lady who attended believed that she was a reincarnated fairy. She would sprinkle fairy dust as we danced around the fire in a circle. I kind of got to thinking about her that way.

    1. Sounds like fun! Hmmm, I wonder if beings like that COULD be reincarnated as humans... would they even want to be??? Interesting thought!

  2. Ooooh, it sounds like a wonderful outfit, Lucretia and I can hardly wait to see a photo of the Real Dark Fairy! :)

    1. I've honestly never been sure if I believed in them or not... but I've got a fairy ring in my garden, just in case. :-)

  4. I was at a concert last month during which a rather splendid little fairy wandered around tapping people (including the performers who thought she was a darling) with her pink wand.

    Looking forward to seeing pics of your super cute top :)

    I'm going out for afternoon tea next week, and have a splendid frock for the occasion, though admittedly Him Underfoot looked a bit dubious. It's the ribbon hatching at the front, which I do agree need to be removed. Will post pics when I get home - they serve gin in teapots!

    1. That sounds hilarious, I love it! :-)

      I'm not sure if I'd want to go to a tea that serves gin in the teapots, but it certainly sounds... interesting!! And I defintely want to see "before" and "after" pictures of the dress!

    2. *cough* I may have pics of me drinking gin from tea cups...! I'm currently having a wardrobe crisis over tomorrow, so gods only know what I'll end up in...

    3. Oh, gods, I know those crises SO well!!! I agonize over my clothes almost every time we go to Death Guild, which is totally stupid, as it's so dark that no one is really going to notice my outfit except ME, anyway!

      Just look for the outfit that BEGS you to wear it, and you should be fine. :-)

    1. It IS great, and so simple! The top does all the work, so I didn't have to do much of anything, hehehe...

    1. I hope so, too!! My overtime check won't come until the end of the month, thanks to someone's incompetence, so I won't be able to get a camera until then. :-( But that will probably be the first picture we take! :-)
