“Even when we're with someone we love, we're foolish enough to think of her body and soul as being separate. To stand before the person we love is not the same as loving her true self, for we are only apt to regard her physical beauty as the indispensable mode of her existence. When time and space intervene, it is possible to be deceived by both, but on the other hand, it is equally possible to draw twice as close to her real self.” Spring Snow; Yukio Mishima.
Wearing my @underground_undies panties. I love them. I'm also wearing a silk top I picked up in Pondicherry while I was on my trip to India. It was from a small shop in the French section of the city. An Icelandic designer.
The Sea of Fertility Series by Mishima was both challenging and rewarding to read. Challenging in that I couldn't always access my emotions when reading it. It's a type of book that doesn't hook me, yet slowly, very slowly, pervades my consciousness at unexpected times. I'm still not certain I can say that I like it. But this quote, well, it's as I feel this week - that what I want most is to have, finally, my soul (should I even have one) and my body fully entwined and desired. 🖤
Sometimes size *does* matter, which is the case with this best-selling Essential #bralette from @montelleintimates. Learn what makes this design a favorite for retailers and customers alike (perhaps because it goes up to a G-cup!?)...head to the link in profile for details! 💙 #montelleintimates

Some of the designs in my 'seconds' box - mostly pieces that I started production runs of but were ultimately cut from the collection. They're not quite up to my usual sewing standard, but are still very wearable. I'm so busy these days that I just can't find the time to list an online sample sale... but rest assured they'll make it there eventually.
Clockwise from top left - Freja bralet in vintage English navy-black leavers lace (sizes UK8-14), Anna halter bralet and knickers in gold thread French leavers lace and stretch microfibre (bralets UK 8-12, knickers 8-10), Elytra underwire bra and briefs in English cotton leavers lace with detachable Elytra beetle wing charms (bras KL size 6-14 or band sizes 30-36, cups 32B-F. Knickers UK 8-14). If you're feeling impatient then feel free to email me to arrange a private sale through PayPal!
