Fashion meets Fetish - Alice Auaa Fall 2014 Collection

Thanks to amazing artist Kate O'Brien for sending me the link to the Alice Auaa Fall 2014 fashion show on Women's Wear She thought I might be interested in seeing it for some reason... Well, I guess you could say that. 

Fashion designers are doing some amazing things with leather lately, and with the widespread popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey (and appropriation of kinky imagery in general) it does my heart glad to see such straight-forward fetish clothing on the runway. This isn't perv-inspired: it is perv. 100%, straight-up, dungeon-ready. This would make John Willie so happy. 

I particularly like the braided pony-tail coming out of the top of the hoods. Like a leather whip handle. And the girls all have their own whips as well - of course!
 This look: the hood under the fur-lined parka hood. That's got to be a first. Some kind of fetish triple-trifecta. Boots, leather, fur, gloves... so many layers of fetish, I'm losing track. 
And those boots... *sigh*

Check out the whole collection here.

What does bondage mean to you?

Dalton Ott from Serious Bondage posted a great article a few weeks ago (which you can read for yourself here). In it he discusses his personal experience of bondage, and what he seeks to get out of it - and more interestingly to me - what he doesn't. 

I always find it fascinating to hear others talk about their bondage preferences, because although a lot of the gear is the same, the experience is unique for each individual. 

The more I understand about people's individual twists and kinks, the more I find unique and subtle differences. Everyone has their own life experiences and viewpoints, personalities and desires, and there are so many ways to experience mental and physical journeys through this kind of gear and play.

Neither Here Nor There

Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I’ve been dealing with a bunch of bad stuff, including the fact that my dad died a few weeks ago. It’s been the worst 5-6 weeks of my life without a doubt. I have been pretty much hiding out from the world. 

The good news is: I’m getting help and I’m coming to peace with my dad’s passing. Other problems are being solved, one at a time. I am just starting to feel normal again, and I'm looking forward to brighter days ahead. 

I am hoping to get back into the swing of things shortly... 

Take care, and thanks very much to everyone who has sent words of love and support.
