Our Steampunk Fantasy…

Posted by Winifred on June 4th, 2014  •  No Comments »

Though you may have uncovered it on our Pinterest boards, we have mostly kept our love for steampunk a secret. A sci fi fantasy in Victorian settings with a steam power bent to it, steampunk matches the elegance we love in fashion and our enjoyment of hardware. There is a gorgeous femininity to it, with a powerful, almost villainous slant. The kind of duality we live for.

For us it starts with the hats. Feathers, lace…

Flowers, not too sweet, more than a hint of darkness,

image

Veils, even while fronting a bit of masculinity,

image

Well crafted jackets, fitted equestrian or military in theme,

image

And the very regal, sensational, unexpected, theatrical skirts,

image

We rarely gravitate towards the standard brown of steampunk,
though we love it for the boys,

image

We find steampunk almost a more true and effective statement in color,

image

We like the fashion part of steampunk softer, more feminine, graceful, Edwardian,
but delight in surprising with a stronger shoe…

Perhaps we’ll take our hat, fitted jacket, full skirt
(our steampunk fantasy includes a hand fan)
and tuck into an adventure.

We see the makings of our next treasure hunt…
