Sunny slowly opened her eyes and snapped them back shut against the bright light that assaulted her vision.

Why are the freaking lights on? Who does that?

She sat up rubbing her eyelids with her palms and tried again. Her eyes adjusted and focused on her new surroundings. Her hands flew to her mouth, smothering her gasp. She sat alone in a beautiful king sized bed with the softest silkiest sheets she’d ever felt. There was luxury dripping off everything in the room. She had never seen, let alone been in a room as beautiful as this one. She was almost afraid to touch anything.

She threw off the downy comforter eager to explore. Goosebumps raised along her bare legs and arms. Looking down, she saw she was clad only in a pink satin slip with black lace that hung low on the tops of her breasts from two spaghetti straps. Her back was completely exposed. The hem reached the tops of her thighs and two slits on either side worked their way up to her hips. Apparently, no panties had been provided. Moving to slide off the tall bed, she looked down and saw two kitten heel slippers with black feathery fluff.

Finally getting around to doing a follow-up of this post, and putting some detail shots in of my winning costume, as well as writing some details. 

My main inspiration for this look came from my love of mythology. The character is a completely original design, and is modeled from the Greek ‘Nyx’, the personification of the night. When designing this garment, I wanted it to have an ethereal, majestic feel, an otherworldly essence dripping with luxury and an awe-inspiring presence.

The dress is made from 100% silk satin, which was dyed from a peacock-blue ‘Royal’ to a more midnight-blue colour (more accurately shown in this picture) - it sounds completely pretentious to say, but the ‘Royal’ blue colour was too blue, and the ‘Navy’ was too black, so I had to find a colour I was happy with. The dress is hand-draped in a fluted column shape, backless and coming from the neck as a halter clasp. Gathered at the waist, it then falls open at the hips in a series of drapes, which is closed at the back with a back slit, allowing for movement.

The neck-piece is a wire construction soldered and shaped by hand, wrapped in gold organza and then covered and hand-sewn with glitter netting, its circular shape resembling that of a golden halo. French guipure lace was hand-dyed into a golden colour and then stitched on, decorated with imitation pearls and sequins to catch the light and give it a resplendent finish. The lace continues onto the collar, where scalloped lace (also similarly dyed) was sized with hat stiffener to keep its particular shape, but retain its fabric texture. The neck-piece closes using gold eyelets at the front and cotton tape, whose ends are then tucked inside the collar of the dress. The ends of the scallops are decorated with loops of gold chain, which are echoed into the 3-part neck brooch in the centre to hide the eyelet lacing.

The cape is attached to the inside of the neck-piece just above the shoulder-blades, and is made of a brushed Japanese satin to resemble the texture of the moon’s surface. Inspired by shot marble, I hand-textured the cape by foiling it intermittently with gold, inside and out. The cape attached to the model by being sewn to gold cuffs.

The belt is assembled together using a variety of jewelry findings, metal filigree and rhinestones wired and soldered together, as well as gold chain and faceted gemstones, including faux moonstones. It is sewn onto the waistband by hand, with the same beaded lace as the neck-piece continuing its flourish across the waist. The long, dangling chain at the front, inspired by Medieval girdles, continues the theme of the night sky by using the same moon pendant, tapering off into a double-sided brooch (matching the one at the neck). It is attached to the draped front of the skirt using a swing-catch to avoid too much movement.

Similarly to the belt, the circlet is also assembled together with assorted jewelry, gemstones and chain, hand-wired and soldered onto a metal frame. The theme is continued with the matching crescent moon pendant affixed to the center.

The gown is embellished with 7,500 rhinestones, in 2mm, 5mm and 9mm sizes. A few scatter at the neckline, but the majority are at the bottom of the hem, continuing upwards into a scattering gradient to simulate glittering stars.

The entire garment, from start to finish, took me a little over 7 weeks to create by hand. I suffered a lot of setbacks in realizing my design, including (but not limited to) the wrong shoe being ordered for my model to wear at the fashion parade, having to order more fabric and re-dye it (praying to match the original dye colour) due to a cutting error at the suppliers, and losing an entire week of work due to coming down with the Dreaded Lurgy - not to mention only being able to work on this garment outside of my 40-contact hours of school (plus homework) a week.

However, I’m pretty proud of my garment, and the fact that it won its category has me feeling immensely chuffed.

(ENORMOUS thanks to archadianskies, who suffered listened to my plights during its construction and offered advice along the way - you’re the best fashun friend ever!)

so like your guess is as good as mine when it comes to what this is. Again it’s kinda different, kinda ceo!Luke and I kinda don’t hate it.

You worked hard to keep your cool, eyes scanning the passing scenery, trying to let the occasional flash of bright light that cut through the darkness soothe you. You had to remain calm otherwise your father, sitting next to you in the back of the chauffeur driven car, would see through you in no time. And you couldn’t have that. As the car slowed to a smooth stop, you took a deep breath, getting your head in the right space for what you were about to do.

Years of being trained on how to exit cars gracefully came into play as you followed your Father, managing to keep your dignity from being stolen by the constant bright flashes, the press obviously having been alerted that two members of one of the most powerful families, and businesses, would be at the club belonging to another of the city’s most successful citizens tonight.

This one, however, was significantly younger than your CEO Father despite having power and wealth to rival his. Both men were smart, obviously given their status, and had met long ago - knowing how useful it was to keep your biggest competitors in your good graces. Not that this meant they were friends, every time they interacted there was an undercurrent of tension. Neither got to where they were today by being nice to everyone and that attitude ran so deep in them both you’d argue it was probably ingrained in their DNA. But tonight was just a friendly visit, for your Father - who also happened to be your boss at the multi-million family business - anyways. For a change it was you that had come with the agenda, having no issue with recommending you both pay Luke a visit, stressing the importance of nurturing valuable alliances.

The loud music washed over you as soon as you were ushered inside the club, not even bothering to glance in the direction of the queue that stretched along the block knowing no one would dare kick up a fuss about you gaining instant entry. People like you that carried weighty names like yours didn’t wait. Nor did they mix with those that weren’t on their level, again there being no question about where you were headed as two large men dressed in black led you up a staircase and away from the packed, sweaty sea of people below. This wasn’t your first visit to the club in any sense, you’d come here purely for pleasure on several occasions - Luke was no idiot and he hadn’t amassed his riches from owning half-assed hole in the walls, the place was dripping in exclusive luxury. And it rubbed off on everyone who entered, regardless of where they came from for the hours they spent there they were able to experience what it was like living as the other half. But you didn’t have to queue for hours and pay an extortionate fee to get in here, which was why you were being lead to the balcony reserved purely for the owner and his personal guests. That’s where you belonged.

His eyes were on you as soon as you took the last dainty step, trailing his gaze slowly from the tip of your sky-high shoes all the way up to where your hair sat in a sleek bun atop your head, drinking in every inch of you. He smirked from where he sat comfortably on a large couch, expensive bottles lining the table in front of him, associates and scantily clad girls crowded around him. However as you and your Dad approached he cleared them out with a wave of his hand, just his security remaining. You paid no attention to the jealous glares that were being shot at you from every angle from the ladies he’d just dismissed, walking as confidently as always, the fact that you knew they had nothing on you making him grin in approval. Equally he managed retain a cool exterior as he caught a few of his business friends rake their eyes over you - knowing exactly what companies he’d be pulling his investments from come tomorrow morning.

While his business relationship with your Dad had reaped countless benefits for him, they were nothing compared to the benefits he’d received from his secret relations with you. You’d met several times, you being the deputy at the company and so being at many of the meetings he was at, both of you finding it difficult to focus on the figures being thrown around, hyperaware of the other’s presence from the very first introduction. It was inevitable really. You were both similar ages, attractive and accustomed to the same kind of lifestyle with neither of you having time to be tied down in a relationship. Not to mention the possible blow his investments in the business world - and most likely his pretty face, too - would take if one of his most valuable friends found out he was banging his daughter. But the risks involved combined with all the aforementioned factors, plus a generous helping of the allure of two people in power in such a fast paced, cut throat profession made it far too enticing for either of you to resist. None of it was ever planned, no pressure being put on either of you to feel anything. They were merely secret trysts, spontaneously dragging the other into deserted offices or conference rooms and allowing the overpowering lust to take over.

And now you were here, wearing a dress that made his head spin and looking immaculate as always, on his turf for once. But this time accompanied by the one person that made your game that little bit more difficult, although he had to admit that he was excited for the challenge. Except you weren’t here for that this time. You were going to try something far riskier.

Adventures in rockportRaspberries on a sunny fall day [More Massachusetts

Sweet, juicy, and dripping with the luxury of time spent under the slanting golden rays of the seaside sun. A box of raspberries capped my American experience: once here, in Rockport, when raspberries were still a decadent treat for a girl from Thailand, and once again five months later as I sat on my bed brimming with happiness on my birthday, the red raspberries like jewels on my soft white blanket, when my mother all the way in Thailand had found someone in Boston to deliver me my favourite fruit. 

I still remember the call I got at around 10PM at night, and I was sitting in my pyjamas about to go to bed when my mother’s friend told me to run down to meet her at the gate. And I walked out in the softly falling snow in my slippers, silk pyjamas and jacket, and received three mysterious plastic bags before I ran back inside. The bags were filled with beautiful, beautiful fruit: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and grapes, but most heartwarmingly, a note from my mother wishing me happy birthday. To me, Boston wasn’t just cold in terms of farenheit: it was cold because it was a city where someone whose love shines out like a beacon of warmth could be there to comfort me. But on my special day, she sent her heart to me from across the ocean, along with a little box of raspberries. 

day five - kylux positivity week

Drabble for day 5 of @kyluxpositivityweek: bdsm + biting. one time where hux gives kylo what he wants, and one time he doesn’t. {warning for angst/self-esteem/punishment issues on kylo’s end.}

Sometimes it goes like this:

 Hux makes Kylo crawl across the floor, naked and head bowed, allowing Hux the perfect view of the way the dim light washes over his toned back.  By the time Kylo reaches Hux, who’s perched on the edge of the bed with his legs spread and making a Kylo-sized space, he’s already half-hard and dripping on Hux’s expensive, luxury rug; he’ll take his belt to Kylo’s hide later for this transgression.  But right now, Hux yanks Kylo’s hair to lift his head up, and despite the rough treatment, Kylo doesn’t make a sound, doesn’t meet Hux’s eye; Hux gives him a pat on the cheek in reward.  Kylo’s eyes flutter shut as he exhales a silent breath, like he’s never experienced anything more fulfilling than this: being on his knees, body and soul yearning to obey and please.

“Disgusting,” Hux deems, the unspoken and perfect hidden beneath derision.

anonymous asked:

Ayeee, the picture they chose to accompany that blurb. That's a horrible pic of zayn. He looks beaten down and she's striding way ahead of him like a rich bich too good for the world. Nope .

It’s no coincidence. She’s ethereal. All in white, dripping luxury. He’s pallid, dressed in black trailing moodily behind her.
They’re literally selling it like she’s slumming it with a bad boy, and her friends don’t like it. It’s played out. They did this spoiled white princess act with Perrie too.

On the upside- I’d like to think that Zayn basically is doing everything he can to be difficult in this scenario. Looking scruffy, refusing to dress up and play into the Barbie & Ken act. Not smiling. You can make him show up to the big game, but you can’t force him to play.

AURORA HAD BEEN TO MANY PLACES during the short twenty years she’d been alive, most of them either dripping with luxury or crawling with a collection of storybook villains. and yet during all those “business” trips to spain with her father, not once had the girl stepped foot in barcelona. that was all going to change tonight. seeing as the cruise was docked on one of the spanish country’s most famous cites, aurora wasn’t about to lay about and sleep on the ship with the rest of the sheep and waste a perfectly good opportunity to get up to no good. the brunette slunk along the exit, the moon dotted sky above not yet touched by the rising sun’s golden rays, despite the early hour. sensing a presence behind her (a skill aurora was perhaps all too good at thanks to her job description) she spun around, face half concealed by the tremedous shadow the ship casted along the dock. ❛ is there a reason you’re following me? ❜ she asked, blue eyes narrowed into slits, a dark brow arched in question. ❛ because to be frank, i don’t think you’d be able to handle where i’m headed. ❜
