{ I’ve still got a little fight left in me }

The Secret Affair‘s July round will be starting in just a few short days and I wanted to give you a little preview of things to come.   I’m loving the theme and styling for this month with all things “Gladiator”-inspired.  FDD Stories and DeathRowDesigns (DRD) are my two highlighted creators here to complete my warrior chick look.  More new things to come to bring out the fighter in you!  May you be victorious in shopping! 😀

Warrior-full_FINAL

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.
