After much contemplation, I decided to take the plunge last night and head off to Asylum alone. Hannah wasn’t feeling too great but she demanded I go and meet up with my fetish friends before Christmas.
The order of the day was my PVC suit, combined with the sprout shirt. I’d been daring the look for a while, but this was it’s first public outing.
Sadly, the problem with wearing such a daring outfit to a fetish night is that nobody notices or comments on it!
After the recent heatwave it’s delightful to grab out my leather jeans again and put them on.
The reason, though, is no obvious.
My Pityriasis Rosea is still bubbling on and all the sites have now gone red and itchy. The last couple of days have been spectacularly bad with it. The leather is unfinished and unlined below the knee so it’s really soft against the skin.
I did try jeans originally, but I found myself wanting to scratch my legs off.
I have to say I’m running out of trousers that fit me though. These used to be seriously tight. They’re now baggy as hell.
I’ve ordered some new dress trousers, but I think I might be adding a pair of jeans onto the list too.
As my weight loss continues I’m finding myself looking at more figure hugging clothing, in particular slimmer fit.
At one time I would have seen slim fit light coloured clothes and shuddered.
Now I own some! Matched with a purple shirt and my Burgundy pattern waistcoat they look rather stunning! Perfect for Ethryll stage wear, but also good for general summer wear.
The clincher though? Cotton Traders, £18!
At one time I went down the route of 501’s only at £80+ a pair because I thought the brand made me look good. It’s not that way round though, it’s all about you making the clothes look good no matter what the brand.
Yesterday was a day of celebration of the life of Adrian Price (Mole); drummer with Kingfisher Blue ; who sadly left us suddenly in January.
Ethryll had been invited to play as we are a fellow band in the same scene as Kingfisher Blue and have performed many gigs with the guys.
The gig was held in a small marquee at The Brothers Arms in Heeley, Sheffield. A pub with a beer garden featuring magnificent views over the valley. Such a poignant location as it was also Mole’s local.
It was a stunning gig and was also the first full 5 piece Ethryll gig with all the band together including new guitarist Jake.
It was also a perfect day to play our song Burning Blue which is about a perfect Summer day. As the festival continued we were treated to a magnificent sunset.
Quite a few pictures were taken – the gallery is below.
I suspect more photos will come in over the next few days so keep checking back!
I recently shared a photo of my blue suit on Instagram (@nomenloony) and I’ve received quite a few nice comments about it.
The suit is one I’ve been looking for the perfect version of for years, but I’ve never found one with quite the right fabric or cut. Often the ones you see people wearing to parties are not good quality, or the fabric is not nice to touch.
It came out of a total accident though – a trip to Meadowhall, or more specifically Next, to buy a new suit after my weigh loss had left me with hardly any that fit. Next proved to be fruitless – all the nice suits were skinny fit.
I then tried M&S and found the cut and styling to be drab, and the prices ridiculous for what you were getting (especially considering they were made overseas using cheap labour).
Whilst walking past Burton I just decided to pop in. I wasn’t optimistic.
Turns out I was wrong! Their range was nice and my sizes were available.
I bought two suits. The bright blue one, and one with a lot more teal in it (that’s for a separate post).
