Fae Fashion

For a while now I’ve been planning on doing a regular fashion post here. Anybody who knows me will probably have a wee laugh to themselves about that, being aware as they would be of my complete lack of style. But I’m not talking about your regular catwalk or high street type of thing. I’m talking about artisan pieces fit to clothe the fairies themselves! During my many fits of procrastination I’ve come across countless such beauties out there in the wonderful word of the web.

For a while now I’ve also been meaning to get back to thanking my new followers like I used to. Alas, I have left it so long that I now have too many new blog buddies to give proper individual thanks to. (Not really something to complain about I suppose.) To make amends, however, I have decided that every so often I’m going to randomly select one of your blogs and share it’s loveliness. I say randomly because you all have such wonderful sites that I just couldn’t pick my favourites.

So today’s post combines both such intentions and in my first instalment of fae-inspired fashion I bring you the wonderful work of Ren from Fairy Steps. Hi there! Ms Ren has so many, many tempting items for sale she makes me want to finally set up a paypal account. Anyway, here are a few examples of the type of thing you can find in her shop:

Dainty little shoes (obviously).

Pretty handknitted garments.

Funky leather bags and purses.

p.s Sorry the enlarged images are of poor quality here, they look much better on the website!

There's something so quintessentially Irish about the shoe with green bow.

Am I still allowed to comment?

Róisín, Your blog is lucky find for me,
such a wonderful place of rare and generous gift!
I hope that my English is not very bad, and funny ...

I love the pointy boots, I quite fancy a pair in nightshade.

WOW! Love these shoes, bags, purses, etc. etc. What a nifty website. I would love me some of these shoes. You find the best stuff!

JJ- Why couldn't you be allowed to comment. You're allowed to not like something you know.

S- Thanks you so very much. Your English is fine too, a lot better than my Russian!

Anthropomophica- I love the pointy boots too, though I doubt I get the chance to wear them much with all the rain we get here.

Kathy- I totally agree. It's a good job I don't have a credit card 'cause I'd be even poorer than I am already if I had access to online shopping!

Roisin (the only native Irish woman with whom I have even the most passing acquaintance, and therefore the dearest,) PLEASE stop taking me seriously. Here's looking at you...
