Burn These Bones

unbar the guarded door

Posted in revisitation by burnthesebones on 02/04/2009




Is one ever too old to play pretend?

With these dramatic cloaks by Lindsey Thornburg, (who also moonlights as a model- I once worked on a lookbook shoot in which she appeared), I would have no shame in creating (somewhat cliched but who cares!) scenarios in order to fulfill the fantasy.

I can just imagine being draped in one of these, in an forest dripping with dew and mist, with a nearby pond reflecting the light of a waning moon, writing in a grimoire. Or in an empty estate during the dead of night, drawing out a pentagram with chalk and salt and molten red candle wax.

“With this sacred blade I cast the circle of my craft.

May it be a doorway to a sacred circle beyond time and space.

Let it be a meeting place for all good, and may it deter all wickedness.”

    I am seriously going to say THANK YOU. This is like a god send, I’ve been dying for a unique source of genius to feed my fashion brain for what seems like ages. You’re blog is incredibly refreshing. It’s intense this is a brilliant mix of fashion intake and personality.

    KISS, China L.

    love your blog as well 🙂 i’ve had my eye on that exact cloak for ages, i tried it on at oak several times and it’s perfect, the simple but elegant way it drapes. a little out of my price range but we all love to dream…
