Fae Fashion no. 3

This Fae Fashion post shows off a new gown by Angelwing entitled Fall Fairy.
The design is loaded with pieces! The russet dress with three skirt variations, a corset in gold, a green bolero, leg ribbons, arm wraps of vines, a hair wreath and two wing variations (with and without falling leaves)
Wear it without the jacket in the warm autumn sun, and add the bolero jacket on those cool autumn nights....
Cas smiles as she sees Emy attired elegantly in the long dress version but wonders if the behavior will follow suit and what she is thinking.
Emy thinks to herself "how does Lady Casandra ever walk in something as massive as these skirts" She kicks at the material and can't wait to get back into her short skirts again...
Emy taking a much deserved break from the photo session
The ivy hair wreath can be seen in more detail by clicking the picture for a close-up
Emy dancing with fellow fae, Jordon. Emy and I love to dance, and the lush skirt moves beautifully.

Did you notice the leaves printed on the gold of the long skirt?  there is really a lot of detail in this skirt. and the ruffle on the velvet jacket is edged with gold embroidery.

My thanks to Emy for all of the help with this post, pictures and captions. She posted the dance she enjoyed with Jordon after we completed the photo session!

I Do Believe in Fairies! Jewelry Fair, Fae Fashion no. 2

'I do believe in fairies' That is proclaimed to all who read this delightful little star around my neck. And I do. I grew up reading my grandparents set of storybooks for children. Each book had a collection of fairytales, tall tales, or folktales. I think they were called Trailways. You've seen circles of toadstools haven't you? I have! Did you ever wonder if it was a faery circle where the wee ones dance?
I flipped through my wardrobe and chose this sheer chiffon design from Staged. Then donned my faery wings! The necklace is extra perfect for me, since I role play a fae queen on the Isle of Arran.
If you click on the picture you will discover falling leaves on an optional over layer.
Both the kini and the bust area are made of opaque layered leaves.The gown itself is sheer and comes in additional colors.
I was very taken with Miao's ribbon bracelet called Kate. It is unusual, feminine, and whimsical. Both the ribbon and the pearls are color change! I'm sure I will wear it often.

The Jewelry Fair ended today. Both worlds have been busy for me, so I am late, late with my post. However I did want to spotlight these two items in particular. If you didn't make it to the fair, you will be able to find them at the Miao store.
