Who Said Honesty Never Pays Off!

As you know from this post, and a bit from this post I love and adore Fairy Goth Mother, to the point that I wish I were a woman (sometimes)! Well, just earlier this week I found one of their corsets on eBay for a very reduced price form some unknown seller claiming it was their own brand and brand new. I did what any pain in the arse would (and trust, I really AM a pain in the arse) and contacted Fairy Goth Mother (I love seeing people get their justice, whether it’s a rapist or murderer or some guy on the side of the road sucking on a speeding fine – it’s a fetish). Today I received an email from John of FGM thanking me greatly and gracing me with a generous gift voucher :).

So there we are kids, do not believe those Hollywood movies, honesty is the best policy!



If there is one thing a guy should never be associated with in regards to his own fashion is bows. What we do like to be associated with though, is cute girls wearing cute bows. Now I am well aware that I am incredibly feminine, but even with that psychological affliction of sorts, I still have no idea about lady’s fashion and so this next bit is purely from what I think is cute and in no way represent any kind of actual fashion advice.

I know this is generally male orientated ‘fashion’ blog; I also know that it’s a male ‘fashion’ (I use fashion in quotes because it’s quite obvious that I have no idea about fashion past knowing all the words to the David Bowie song) blog that reports on cheap and affordable items of clothing; but sometimes you see something that makes you a) wish you were a woman, and b) had so much money to spare. The item in question is this:

In the words of Bowie, “Wham, Bam – thank-you you mam!”. At an ‘affordable’ £340, before shipping and the rest, it’s not something you’re going to be buying as the mood takes you (if it is than you either have way too much money to throw around or need to get some help – you have a problem). Luckily for those of you who live in the lovely UK you get awesome free shipping for items over £100, which is somewhat of a consolation I guess.

I know I make a lot of jokes on here in attempt to sugar coat my chronic cynicism and to cover up the fact that I really have no idea what I’m talking about, but I am deadly serious when I say that after looking through the catalogue at Fairy Goth Mother I really do wish I were a woman. Their dresses, corsets, lingerie, gowns and all items in-between are all cute and adorable, sexy and seductive, sensible and provocative, and sometimes all of these things at once.

For those of you who aren’t made of money there are some pretty impressive savings on the older items (some by £200 alone) found under the clearance section of the website. So much sigh, so much sigh.
