Tight Laced Pearls…

…for when poly-lingerie and cheap bubbly, just… ain’t enough. Deyam, they’re itchy… glitter helps!

Before you all get your Knickers/Pants/Panties in a bunch; I’m allowed to make that joke out loud – as I am also a poly-blend – although I’m not going to give you a weird patterned chafe mark. Full disclosurea’sif you need it I’m a Raptor, we do bite. Hard. #RaptorsPartyHard

On the subject of things hardPearls. Very firm, that’s due to natural occurring composite material called Nacre…very Nacreous… what one might call Pearl Finish. OR Nackered. Lol, funnily enough – it’s strong, resilient, iridescent and beautiful. Ode to that Naff Nacre-nifty stuff, with the white pearlescent base and matching pearl beads.

From Pearls to one of my mostest favouritest items in the world, Lacy Lingerie. As a reformed Tom-Boy, current Drag-Queen-Fantic – I love underthings, lady-things… you know. Sheeny, Shiny, Sheer, Silken Awesomeness, nothing makes you feel better on a dreary day than a really prettiyful pair or frilly things. *Giddy Squeeing*

I’ve had my fair share of awkward Lacy-Racy moments; one of my Raptor-Relatives announced one day that a pair of lacy underthings had been COMPLETELY DESTROYED by the washing machine – much to my horror as they were not CHEAP. But I also wouldn’t be paying for the repairs for their murderer either. Everyone starting tossing the item in question around the lounge room hysterically laughing… turns out it was totally fine – as I announced “That’s just how big it is!”  (Camera panes to Raptor-Parents mortified faces)

It is not so much unhealthy habit adoring frilly-things, it is – however – an unhealthy habit considering the amount of dosh forfeited for every purchase. But really? Do you need: Food, Water, Shelter, Medicines, Entertainment over Expensive Lingerie. I know, you don’t either – on that note: check your stocking lines as it can ruin the whole look. #FashionHolyFauxPas

Get the look – Pearl finish white gold on all talons excluding the feature, covering with black lace pattern and finish with pearl studs. I chose a random design formation in the lace and balanced with a ombre glitter on the feature talon. Glitter ombre can be achieve by sprinkling different colour glitter onto some good ol‘ aluminium foil and then slowly rolling the wet clear polish. It turns our super smooth but pop on some top coat. Fabulous!

Love this look – the super smooth glitter really sets off the classically beautiful lace pattern – giving a light playfulness. Super cute, lots of comments – some were even that the talons could use more glitter.

Everyone loves a sheer lace

Everyone loves a good sheer lace – EVERYONE. Everyone must acknowledge the superiority of all things sheer. Sheerly Magnificent! Truly.

Fabulous, x

So what you think, Darling?

What’s your experiences with Pearls and Lace? Did you mix in some poly-blend velveteen to really … finish the look. Please tell me they were matching sets… PLEASE.
