Sail Away, Sail Away

1 Paper Boat

Sail away, sail away.

My boat may be made of paper, but I am setting off into the mist, ready to face whatever crosses my path. No anchor, no life vest – just me and the open sea. No storm is too fierce, no gale is too strong to keep me from sailing wherever the winds take me. Across the seven seas or into a secluded lagoon, I will be a valiant sailor.

Come along with me, as we sail away, sail away.

This photo was inspired by Johnfrancis Laville’s latest release. I have more than one sailor hat in my inventory, but none as perfect as this. You can find it at the JfL Hats mainstore.

Market Day

1 Market Day

The apples are picked, the harvest is done. Now it’s just a waiting game until I can load my wares and head to the market.

If I were my mother, I would have made apple butter and pressed cider to take along; but I’m afraid those skills passed with her. Instead, I’ll just sell the fruit, fresh from the trees. They are juicy and sweet, with just a bit of a tart bite to them – perfect, in other words.

And no, I didn’t do my picking in this outfit; it is special, just for Market Day. I have donned my new hat from JfL, and of course, these boots from fri.day are made just for looking pretty in; I would have scuffed the heels if I had tried to climb a ladder while wearing them!

The hat is a new release you can find at the JfL Hats mainstore and the boots are available at the September round of Collabor88.

Before I go, I will let you in on a secret. I tucked a dozen or so apples aside in my kitchen for when I return. I may not be able to make cider, but my mother’s pie recipe is one that I have ingrained in my memory.

Too Awesome To Be A Horror Movie Victim

1 Lost In The Mist 2

I heard something the other day that made me laugh.

I would be the first person to die in a horror movie. I refuse to spend my last minutes running. Screw that.

Apparently there is also a correlation between wearing matching bra and panties and being a serial killer’s victim, but I’m not showing off my undies today, so we’ll just stick to the horror movie story.

No, my outfit isn’t really the best wardrobe for a walk through a misty forest, but that seems to be the case for most horror movie victims. The skirt is too short, the heels are too high, the top is too tiny but damn, I look good! I couldn’t resist a peep over my shoulder to see if I could figure out what is making those growly noises behind me, but honestly, I don’t think I want to know. Is that a shadow near that tree, or is it a hockey-mask-wearing freak just waiting to slash me – and I don’t mean with a high stick!

If I can just make it into the mist, I think I can blend in and very possibly – hopefully – get out of the woods alive.

Shiny Shabby has opened once again and you need (I do mean need) this denim skirt from Apple May Designs. The fit and textures are superb and you can even change the colour of your belt to match your outfit. !bang has also stepped up with not just a singles pose pack (including mirrors) but a sweet friend’s pose as well. Go forth and shop. You’re way too awesome to be a horror movie victim.
