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,
Veils, even while fronting a bit of masculinity,
Well crafted jackets, fitted equestrian or military in theme,
And the very regal, sensational, unexpected, theatrical skirts,
We rarely gravitate towards the standard brown of steampunk,
though we love it for the boys,
We find steampunk almost a more true and effective statement in color,
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…
