Hosiery, The Perfect Accessory For All Legs

bare-legs

As the temperature cools with the summer nearing it’s end, and bare legs still fresh in our minds, it’s difficult to muster up the desire to cover up those gams with clothes of some kind. 

stockings-garters

The cuffs and hemlines that rose, now get lower, but an age old solution to that situation that’s not only practical, but down right sexy, is hosiery, the perfect accessory for all legs, that’s what sexy this week.

Choosing to wear stockings, stay-ups, pantyhose or leggings is the decision of the wearer, but maybe, just maybe, I can help convince you to put on a pair with a few descriptives of my own.

Did I say I liked to wear hosiery? Well I do, and I have quite the collection of my own silky smooth soft coverings. I love my stockings held up with a garter belt, but I also love my stay-ups for days when I’m going commando under a skirt or dress. Or try a pair of pantyhose that stretch across a firm ass as the best shapely adornment possible for those that want to caress, but the sign says “don’t touch!”

Body Dysmorphia For This Weeks Tidbits

idbits-body-dysmorphia-1

Recently I was accused of having body dysmorphia “issues”. 

Wikipedia classifies Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a mental disorder characterized by an obsessive preoccupation that some aspect of one’s own appearance is severely flawed and warrants exceptional measures to hide or fix it.[1] In BDD’s delusional variant, the flaw is imagined.[2] If the flaw is actual, its importance is severely exaggerated.[2] Either way, one’s thoughts about it are pervasive and intrusive, occupying up to several hours a day.

and the definition goes on……..

Let’s just say that I thought the statement was somewhat humorous, and a completely stupid accusation!

For those that know me, and those that know me well that the statement is so far from the truth I just don’t know where to begin refuting it, so much so that I won’t. What strikes me is the need for these types of individuals to get in my face and declare they know me better than my own self. If we look at Wikipedia’s definition closely and that of other classifications, it would suggest that I spend hours a day occupying my time over what I construe as flaws, again I cannot begin to start where this is so wrong!

tidbits-body-dysmorphia-3My day starts by getting up, having breakfast, heading to the gym, and then getting dressed to tackle the rest. I knew and know what I didn’t like about myself, and I got on with correcting those issues, not obsessing to the point of being able to function. I do my maintenance regimes, eat right, take care of of my health, and if need be, have a few “treatments” here and there. I’ve worked at my appearance, and I’m rather proud of it! I made the decisions, I did the work, did what I wanted, and at 52 I think I’ve got it down pat for what the rest of what my life looks like.

What I do want to present here is the general tone and attitude of the individual that made the statement to me, and I’m going to say this, an attitude of jealousy and laziness. In this instance I considered the source, and it wasn’t pretty! Call me shallow, call me esoteric, call me a bitch, but honey, effort is required by everyone to look how you want! Again taking the words of Helena Rubinstein; “There are no ugly women, just lazy ones!” and how right she was. This statement so profound, even applies to the men out there.

Everyone I know does something to themselves for their own particular reasons, and that’s what makes them individuals, unique and beautiful unto themselves, which is for the most part why I LOVE all the people I know.

People getting tattooed, pierced, branded, augmented, reduced, cosmetically treated, working out at the gym, hair done, make-up used, clothes bought, it all plays into appearances, appearances I relish and support.

It made me wonder, does this individual say anything to those outside of my world, the world of the gender variant, transgender, transsexual, non-binary groupings? For some reason I believe they don’t, that would be to easy, and it would play on stereotyping, and isn’t that what this person just did to me? Me as a woman with a transsexual medical history, I was just stereotyped for wanting to look a certain way?

I look how I crafted myself, no one told me how to look or be, and in the end the statement made me laugh to myself and think, quite frankly, go fuck yourself! I’m happy with what I’m doing and where I’m going and no one will tell me different.tidbits-body-dysmorphia-4

How’s that for a little rant?

High-Tide Heels to Keep Your Feet Dry for Wacky Wednesday

wacky-wednesday-High-Tide-Heels-1

So high-tide has overlfowed, and poor Melania Trump, getting picked on for wearing heels to view the devastation hurricane Harvey has left in it’s wake. First off I’m not undermining the issue of the devastation left behind, devastation that we can compare to the wild fires we’re experiencing here in British Columbia, Canada. It’s horrible and a serious wake up call, and to those who keep believing  global warming doesn’t exist, give your idiot brains a shake!

wacky-wednesday-High-Tide-Heels-4-melania-trump-storm-stilettos-

First off we don’t know whey she wore them, and quiet frankly who cares! She’s gorgeous and wears it well, but maybe, just maybe she is wearing shoes like that because she has to? Being married to the man who once was her prince charming, now the world buffoon, may come with a set of rules. He has already proven himself as the misogynist he is by bellowing “grab her in the pussy” and complimenting the president of France’s wife Brigitte Macron on how good she looks as the first things out of his mouth. So much depth, engaging, and intelligent conversation Donald Trump is capable of.

Maybe Melania has to wear them, maybe she was the victim of a cruel joke by his staff, maybe she just didn’t get the memo, or maybe she wore them to look fabulous next to him. It doesn’t take much to do that with a comb-over like that! Either way she did and let’s get over it, because I have found the best option for her for next time it should happen again.

I came across these lovelies in my internet travels, Tide High Heels, originally designed and created by Belgian artist Paul Schietekat for an exhibition in 2006. First published in 2009 in The Telegraph, it appears that these won’t be making any splash at the local shoe stores anytime soon.

I don’t get why, they are colourful, water proof and resistant, great for mobility on land and in the water, and I agree, look so much better

than a pair of flip flops.

Just think of the possibilities folks, dinner and dancing, the opera, the theatre, your next beach side vacation! I’m all for it, and would love a snappy pair to hit the fashion shows of Europe.

Beach Ready Bodies at Anytime, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

Sexy-this-week-beach-ready-bodies-2

The lead up to the summer each and every year is full of folks opting for the last minute fix to get that media manipulated ideal of the beach ready body. People falling into the brain washing of a quick solution, and buying that quick fix to get lean and muscled, god-like for what the mental conditioning has led them to believe. On the flipside there are those who never fall into that expertly crafted trap, those who are safe and secure in the knowledge they are happy with the body they currently have, or even care for that matter. A body that is not part of the “media manipulated ideal” and ready to hit the beach at any time. Bodies not controlled by the mainstream ideal, beach ready bodies at anytime, that’s what sexy this week.

Wacky Wednesday: Enchanted Doll, Dolls by Marina Bychkova

WW-42 Marina-Bychkova-cathedral

Enchanted Doll, doll’s by Marina Bychkova, a Russian-Canadian figurative artist and founder of Enchanted Doll™- a luxury toy label of exquisite, porcelain dolls. are nothing short of what she calls her site. Enchanting, yet another great find from my travels in the Pinterest realm.

Most people know I love dolls, but more in particular dolls produced in the style of what I call, the “Barbie” look. Dolls for the most part considered outrageous and not good role models for little girls. Well folks, these dolls I would say are NOT for little girls or boys, but for the adult minded that take great care and pride in displaying these gems of exquisite artistry. These dolls are enchanting fairy tales brought to life for the serious connoisseur of things beautiful.

These dolls are made with great care from ceramics, bendable, movable dolls crafted with great detail paying strict attention to the colour of the skin and make-up, the accessories used to adorn them, fabrics for the costumes, realistic hair, and facial expressions. Even the genitalia is expertly painted and detailed! Yes she creates dolls that are beautifully nude, and on the opposite side of the spectrum, dressed beyond compare. Fantasy is not something she shies away from.

Wacky Wednesday: Matt Crump’s Rich Pastel Photographic Manipulations

matt_crump_wacky_wednesday_1

Most folks shy away from the use of pastels, especially men, however Matt Crump’s rich pastels photographic manipulations prove otherwise,  proof he has embraced the use of pastels and is producing some incredible works of art that are downright delicious.

Wikipedia describes; 

“Pastels or pastel colours are the family of colours which, when described in the HSV colour space, have high value and low to intermediate saturation. The name comes from pastels, art media characteristic of this colour family. The colours of this family are usually described as “soothing”,”soft”, “near neutral”, “milky”, “washed out”, “desaturated”, and lacking strong chromatic content.

Pink, mauve, and baby blue are typical pastel colours.”

Everyone knows I’m big on pink and pastels, and if you don’t, well now you do! I feel and believe there is so much strength in these types of colours that paired with black or other colours, shades, and tones of opposite value or slight variation on the colour wheel, they are downright sexy and awe inspiring.

Wacky Wednesday: Erotic African Art, A Feast For The Senses, and Sensibilities

wacky_wednesday_41_lady_skollie

In this instalment of Wacky Wednesday, we flip and bring you Wondrous Wednesday and present South African artist,  Lady Skollie. Based out of Johannesburg she creates erotic art that’s a visual feast for the eyes, and well, other parts of the body. Her work is bold, and brash, full of colour and life, a feast for all senses!

Born in 1987 in Cape Town with the birth name, Laura Windvogel, her pseudonym tells the real story of a woman in control of her own. For those that know Afrikaans, Skollie describes a person of colour as a suspicious character, used by the police of the area, so it seems fitting that at she would use it in her own name.

In a recent article for The Huffington Post by Priscilla Frank , she tells of the history of her people, the “Khoisan Tribe, a group that 22,000 years ago was the largest on the planet but now numbers approximately 100,000”. Its a humbling short read that gives great descriptive on her work and choice mediums in which to produce her elaborate work. Work that is without a doubt thought provoking.

Her work is currently on display at the Tyburn Gallery London.

A feast, well worth it.

Sexy This Week; Focus

STW 50) Focus

A central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity, to concentrate: to focus one’s thoughts; verb (used without object), focused, focusing or focussed, focussing. To be or become focused.

We need it, we try to do it, we work hard at maintaining it, and struggle very hard to keep it, for the long or short term. With a goal, you need it, it’s not a want, and with it, a certain amount of strength is required to keep it. With your eyes on the prize, you need it, focus, and that’s what sexy this week.

Distraction is easy, and like a bad, if I may be so blunt, FART, it is ever creeping and lingers all the time and everywhere. You hear it, you smell, and sometimes you see it.STW_50_horse_blinders

I’ll switch gears and use another descriptive, but I think you got the point with the previous 🙂

Sexy this Week: Goals

stw_goals_fitness

We all want a positive outcome to everything we do in our lives, no matter what that is. For me and those in my life, be they acquaintances or my close personal friends, those results are of the happy, life affirming kind. The challenges we set for ourselves as human beings in getting from point A to B putting us through it. Without the fear, excitement, and the need, or want to make a change, most will never get there. Making a plan and committing to it, to get to that end point, GOALS, that’s what sexy this week.

In younger years we set them without actually knowing what they are. We go to school, take up sports, get involved in the arts, or take up hobbies, things or actions done because they are for the most part fun. We weren’t actually thinking about what that meant to take on interests and work to a purpose. (more…)

Wacky Wednesday: The Kissenger

WW-40-lovotics-kissenger-new-version

Well here you have it, two companies competing for your sales of providing you with the ability of long distance kisses for your loved ones in far off places.

I’m not sure who came up with the idea first, and I don’t care, it’s the idea I love. First is Lovotics  with an interesting little selection of devices you can hook up to your computer and send kisses from afar to afar. In their words;

Kissenger is an application of Lovotics. Kissenger system consists of a pair of robots to transfer kiss over distance.

Kissenger provides a novel way of transferring a kiss through interactive digital media. It provides a physical interface enabling kiss communication for several applications facilitating intimate human tele-presence with the real and virtual worlds.
Kissing is a very important mode of human communication that involves joining lips in order to express many deep felt positive emotions such as affection, respect, greeting, farewell, good luck, romantic affection or sexual desire. Apart from the surface level enjoyment humans have by kissing, it also plays a crucial biologically motivated role in allowing prospective mates to smell and taste each other’s pheromones for detecting compatibility.
With the aid of digital communication media and advanced robotic technology, the system takes the form of an artificial mouth that provides the convincing properties of the real kiss.(more…)
