{ Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness } NEW for The Secret Affair!

The time will come
When you’ll have to rise
Above the best and prove yourself,
Your spirit never dies!

Farewell, I’ve gone to take my throne above,
But don’t weep for me
‘Cause this will be
The labor of my love

Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.
Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town
From dust.

Welp.  I had meant to blog this a couple weeks ago but got caught up in quite a pile of work and deadlines so this one had to wait.  Although I had the photo done and ready to go… And the inspiration came from the name of the fashion pieces from .Shi at this month’s round of Collabor88.  There was an other worldly element to the breastplate piece that was hard to pinpoint, and I really think it’s a very versatile piece… But for me, I felt a bit of an ancient Greek influence overall, especially once I added in the Gladiator heels from ISON.  Regardless, this look was truly fun for me to put together… to step out of the traditional fashion styles and into something a bit fantasy, a bit historical, and a bit roleplay.  And to still feel powerful and strong yet feminine.  Yep, I think I’ll keep this look… never know when you’ll hear the battle cries.
