Attachments

There’s something truly gorgeous about a beautifully-tied ribbon bow, I think. Someone with a few over-sensitive ideas about neatness, like myself, can spend a ridiculous amount of time fussing over keeping the loops of a bow equal, and making it look as pretty as it can.

 

I LOVE the ribbons on these shoes, but when admiring them and especially the detail at the front of the shoes, and trying to think how to best show them off,  they got me to thinking of attachments, how we bind ourselves closely to things, and others to us.

 

Life moves, and moves us with it. Well, if we are wise we move with life and not try to go against it.  Some things cannot be avoided, but with clear focus on where we are heading, and a lightness of heart, beauty can be find in even the darkest moments.

 

2019 seems to be hurtling towards the end of its time, and I can honestly say that this year has been one full of obstacles, and changes. Some have been really hard, but all have taught me something about myself. Some links have been unfastened completely, some tied tighter, and then there are those attachments which have been changed in nature, but re-bound with a different, but equally beautiful bow.

 

Nothing remains as it was. The nature of the passing of time is that all things change. This is not something to be mourned, because sometimes they evolve into something even more worthy.

 

That said… for now… just enjoy these gorgeous new Morgane Ribbon Heels from Gos… out now at  Fameshed, shown off perfectly with one of the Bedeviled pose from Gingerfish, and complemented with lingerie from Erratic.

Ready and waiting

She perched on the edge of the chair, careful not to disturb the sleeping cat. Twisting her ankle this way, then that, she admired the shining toe of her boots as it contrasted with the knitted fabric covering her leg. Leaning forwards she slowly pulled the laces tight, fastening each bow as she let a grin spread on her face “Oh yes! These really are the perfect finishing touch to this outfit. I am sure he will approve”

She had intended to have the tree decorated in time for his return, but truth be told she suspected he might be more interested in her adornments. A flush spread to her cheeks as she heard his key in the door, and she was unsure as to whether it due to the open fire, or her plans for the evening. She grabbed the mistletoe and awaited his reaction to the scene she had prepared for him.
