Keeping it feminine

With the new septum ring I am trying to keep things ultra feminine. It’s a very polarizing piercing and fortunately, so far, the majority of feedback has been positive! Or they may just be being polite 🙂 I find that reactions to piercings vary by generation and location. In my situation it is definitely a ‘fashion’ statement rather than one of rebellion. I spend a lot of time researching style images and maybe that is why I see that piercings can be sophisticated and elegant, as opposed to harsh and aggressive. The NYTimes ran an article here that makes interesting reading.

Here are some of the beautiful images that finally encouraged me to take the plunge.

Yesterday I got a good response to my outifit, however, I have to say I didn’t really feel me – I felt a bit ‘mumsy’ in the tunic and white jeans. I think I’ll prefer the tunic with shorts – I felt too much like I was wearing the ‘Atlanta Mom uniform’.

Today I feel much more me, and lovely and feminine, in heels for a change!

      Thanks Jane – it is lovely – it is a lovely deep color too – it’s jersey/t-shirt fabric so really comfortable as well xx

    Isn’t it funny how something so small can change how you feel about what you wear? I know what you mean though – I felt the same when I cut my hair off.
    I like both outfits but there’s a boden-esque quality to the tunic that maybe makes it look a tiny bit mumsy? But on you – not so much as you definitely ‘cool’ it up lots. Meanwhile, looking fab today – that colour is great on you x

      Yes – I think that’s why I want to grow my hair a little – I want to stay feminine! It is a bit Boden like isn’t it – it is beautiful I just think it needs to be worn with something other than white jeans! xx

    I love your piercings and I am of a similar age and lifestyle. I have been thinking about doing a few piercings of my own and your inspiration photos may have put me over the edge

      Hi!! Thanks so much for your comment! Take a look on pinterest there are so many beautiful images that are inspiring and make me wonder why we are so reluctant to embrace piercings – I think I should have been born somewhere that is more culturally acceptable lol! It’s funny after a while people just get used to seeing you with them and don’t bat an eyelid:) Let me know what you end up doing! xx
