I WANT IT! Holsters I Never Knew I Needed

I have a love for accessories (and accessorizing in general) but I've never owned holsters. I'm not into weapons so I just never had the need. Oh how stupid and naive I was.

Everything changed thanks to Pinterest, where I stumbled across a pin for the Etsy store Versalla and realized, "I totally need a leather holster for a folding fan!" I don't actually own a folding fan, but that's because I never had a holster to keep it in.

And then-- a teacup and saucer holster! I'm not much of a tea drinker, but I never had a reason to be...until now!

A whole new world is opening up to me! A world of props and accessories that are too big for my purse but can always be with me, dangling from my belt like a carpenter's tools.

A potion bottle holder? I'll fill it with a magical potion called vodka.

A leather tankard strap? A pocket watch holster? I'll take 'em both!

Parasol holster? Yes!!!!

A parasol holder that straps across your back? Oh my god just give it to me!!

My greatest adversary is the sun, and my only weapon is my parasol. Or, you know, going indoors. So I guess I still don't need a leather parasol holster across my back. But I want it. Versalla on Etsy

Neo-Victorian Wedding Dress

Woman wearing a neo-victorian wedding dress with a steamgoth/steampunk/gothic/goth influence. White lace wedding dress with leg of mutton sleeves and high victorian collar/high neck. Floor length mermaid/fishtail skirt with ruffles. Sexy ivory lace overbust corset.
This is an absolutely stunning wedding dress idea. Start with a lace wedding dress that has a Victorian feel (note the high collar, puffed sleeves and mermaid skirt). An ivory overbust corset worn over the dress enhances the hourglass silhouette and brings a bit of Neo-Victorian romance to the gown.

While the floor-length hem, high collar, and long sleeves may cover everything but her hands and face, the sheer lace keeps it sexy, showing hints of bare skin and leaving only the corset to protect her modesty.
