More Impressed with Fully Dressed

Eliza-dushkuEliza Dushku. I’ve seen her in the Buffy and Angel series and again in Dollhouse. Why are most of her photographs (posing for publicity) not like this? Here she has elegance and power. But, most female characters/ actresses are posed inelegantly, often with legs open so the focus is not on their face. If men were posed that way it would look obscene or far too cocky (literally).

Not so different from female Doms. Most are shown in tight clothes with a lot of skin and body parts exposed. Meanwhile men show almost no skin. They tend to look mysterious, in command and a little threatening. They don’t look like hookers.

I know someone will have a thing about the use of the word hookers. But, that’s how I feel. If you have a conniption about it, read the blog of someone who agrees with everything you think. Yes men types should stick together. I prefer to be a free thinker. I decide what I think and when I change what I think. You only have that privilege for yourself.

Anyway, I prefer the photos of Eliza fully dressed. My favourite being the full length black dress. eliza-dushkuEliza_Dushku

Vintage Faux Fur Long Coat Made in Canada

Even the buttons look like trilliums. It’s a size 2X. Selling for less than $100 (counting the shipping) from a shop on Etsy.

But, I really don’t need another coat. Plus, 2X probably wouldn’t fit, a bit too tight. What a treasure for someone else to find though.

This is a top quality, thick, cosy and warm faux mink coat, jet black. The coat fastens with 5 pretty floral buttons, and each wide sleeve has a half belt a couple inches from the end, decorated with a smaller matching button. The coat is lined with glossy black satin and is in pristine condition.

When Women Carried Swords

Hat pins were not a joke. If women still wore hat pins there would be a hat pin fetish.

Being stuck with a hat pin would not make a good fetish. Too dangerous.

Some of them were 12 inches long, sharp and not used as a medical instrument traditionally.  I’m sure there would be a lot of accidental deaths by hat pin.

On the other hand, they may have been better than pepper spray at keeping the mashers at bay. 

In March 1910, Chicago’s city council ran with that idea, debating an ordinance that would ban hatpins longer than nine inches; any woman caught in violation would be arrested and fined $50. The proceedings were packed with curious spectators, men and women, and acrimonious from the start. “If women care to wear carrots and roosters on their heads, that is a matter for their own concern, but when it comes to wearing swords they must be stopped,” a supporter said. Cries of “Bravo!” from the men; hisses from the women. Nan Davis, there to represent several women’s clubs, asked for permission to address the committee. “If the men of Chicago want to take the hatpins away from us, let them make the streets safe,” she said. “No man has a right to tell me how I shall dress and what I shall wear.”

Despite Davis’ impassioned speech, the ordinance passed by a vote of 68 to 2. Similar laws subsequently passed in several other cities, including Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and New Orleans. Ten thousand miles away, in Sydney,  Australia, sixty women went to jail rather than pay fines for wearing “murderous weapons” in their hats. Even conservative London ladies steadfastly refused to buy hatpin point protectors.

Necklace for a Domme

This is the ideal accessory for those occasions you want to make a statement when fetish wear is not acceptable. The people you want to know your kinky ways will figure it out. Most of the others will just wonder if they even notice the little caged man at all.

My First Pick for New Slippers

I really like these but I can’t spend that much on new slippers. Plus the shipping. It helps knowing they are wool. I can blame it on the itchy feet I’d have if I wore wool. Still, they really are nice.

Dress Code Enforced for School Girls

Yes, people should have the right to dress themselves. But, that doesn’t mean the school is wrong. People should also have the right to safety and the school is responsible for keeping the young people safe. It would be smarter for them to take part in that rather than rebel against it. This isn’t something the school is randomly deciding to do.

Boys wear long pants. Most of their body is covered. Why don’t young women dress more sensibly too? Why are they showing so much skin? When did young women start dressing like strippers while young men dress like modern, male nuns?

In the case of this girl (in the photo) the skirt doesn’t look too short. But, it must be a concern at the school. People are more into sex these days, talk about, view it in one way or another several times a day.

Very different from the days I was going to school and wearing skirts much like this. No one had little cameras to try get a look up my skirt. No one hung around the school hoping to zoom in if I flashed underwear in the playground.

Would you Buy a Man Bun?

Look trendy, show off hair you don’t have? What would tempt you to buy a man bun? For yourself, or someone else?

Personally, the man bun fashion doesn’t tempt me. I don’t care for it on men and wouldn’t encourage a man bun as a way to hide hair loss. Not that shaving the head is a better solution. I’d rather see less bald heads and more partially bald heads. The naked head doesn’t suit every man.

Attachable hairpiece lets you have a man bun when you want it and take it off when you don’t
