You're Just A Hideaway, You're Just A Feeling

Playsuit c/o Wal G / Cape - Lashes of London / Hat - Vintage

Recently I've been finding myself wearing playsuits very often! They have the convenience of a dress where there's no need to match a top and bottom but even better, at least in my opinion, because you can be as active as you want in them. Thinking back to the last 2 weeks and this week, the majority of the days I interned at the leather harness place I wore a playsuit to work since they look nice and I can get down and dirty while cutting/punching/dyeing leather. This playsuit from Wal G is my newest addition to my collection (which is slowly but surely growing)! At the harness place, I work a lot with black dye and after my first day there, a coworker informed me that wearing black would be safer since you often return home covered in dye. I don't know about you but I've always thought of summer as the time to wear the brightest colors. Therefore I've always refrained from buying black summer clothes. After wearing colorful clothes for the past 2 weeks to work, I finally had this lovely playsuit to wear and had a nice joke with everyone that I finally found something black to wear but it'd be a one time deal and I would return to colorful clothing the next day. Haha maybe I can get away with wearing this romper a few more times to work though...hopefully no one will notice? :P

And do you still think love is a laserquest

 Dress c/o 6ks / Hat - Talbots / Shoes - Sam Edelman

Oh gosh it's been a while! I don't know if you guys remember since it's been a while since I posted but remember that internship I applied to a few weeks ago?? Well...I got it!! :) I'm working with a leather accessories designer who specializes in leather harnesses. I know what you're thinking, and the answer is no...I am not a secret BDSM enthusiast :P Leather harnesses do have connotations of BDSM and yea people who participate in the activity could be purchasing her products but I believe the main customers purchasing this designers items are for fashion purpose. Now that we've cleared that up, because not surprisingly, I've had to explain that to all my friends, I can tell you about how awesome these leather harnesses are! I'm going to keep where I'm interning at private for now but she's pretty much the leading leather harness designer right now so I'm sure it'd be easy to figure her out just with google :P I started the internship 2 weeks ago and I get to make harnesses from start to finish since she hand makes all her pieces in her studio! Its seriously so awesome and now that I know the process of making harnesses, I can't wait to try to make some of my own since I have a pile of leather sitting in my workspace! So hopefully in the next few posts, I'll have a harness of my own to show you guys! :D Yup so that about explains my life in the past 2 weeks of me being MIA! I have several posts planned for this week though so prepared to be bombarded with new ooey gooey fun stuff ;P
