The Winds At My Feet

beauty is odd

You always know when a change is about to come. It is that instinct that has gotten our species this far. But very often I find myself wanting to go the other way. To turn my back on change. To try and maintain things the way they are. To hold onto what I know. And that time is now. I can feel the boisterous winds of change at my feet. Gnawing at my ankles like hungry dogs; and I don’t know which way to turn. The hurts of last year are still too fresh in my mind, and the infestations of doubt and denial are spreading. I feel trapped, not because I have nowhere to go, but because this is not the road I want to be on.

All I can do is hope that this road, will get me to where I need to be.

Paradise, burn!

This will be my last confession
I love you never felt like any blessing
Whispering like it's a secret
Only to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

Florence and the machines- Heavy in your arms

My Royal Purple

Dress made by me, Model-Ombili
I was recently browsing sewing blogs when I saw a tutorial (can't seem to retrace the blog) where this girl used a satin sash to create a tie neckline. I thought it would be good idea to use on a maxi dress and I went for it. I made a prototype for myself and made this second when my sister said she was interested in the dress and voila!
Here's the finished product! What do you think?
Hope you have a productive 2012!
