Katana on red

Went a little crazy at Victoria's Secret

Oh no, you did not spend $93.57 at Victoria's Secret last night! *head*desk* Oh well, might as well share the joy. $18 of it was rhinestone bra straps. So if you're wearing a black dress in which your bra straps show, you can dress it up a bit by having those rhinestone straps peeking out.

But the real catch was this gorgeous knit tank top with sparkly black beading. The straps are totally adjustable and when I got it home I figured out I could drop the straps so low that that the top dropped all the way below my bra. Wearing it this way with PVC bra transformed it from a tank top to a very saucy little dress that I can wear to fetish events (there's a picture of me wearing it like this below the cut). Please note I would only wear it this way to fetish club or event, I don't run around the clubs normally wearing only a net. But there are certainly a few events in Seattle where a little net dress are appropriate and the norm. So given the versatility of this little top, I'd say it was well worth the $68 I paid for it, don't you think?

lots of kitty love here

Here is an outtake from the photo shoot last weekend. I had just finished a pole spin, had landed on the floor, was going to do a little fancy floor work. Meushi decided she was in a loving mood and started to give me head butts to my face. I returned them with kisses to her forehead.

S Factor pole dancer Sheila Kelley

Another spiritual pole dancer!

Ordered these shoes yesterday. One of my pole students ordered a pair with me, so we met the maximum required to get free shipping. Yay! I can't wait to get them!

Service was sweet on Sunday. They had a little mini children's choir singing, about two dozen children. They all were dressed as what they wanted to be when they grow up. There was everything from a basket ball player to a lawyer to a princess. The song and the message from them centered around the philosophy that they are loved just the way they are and that they can be anything they want and achieve any dream they have in life. While I'm very lucky to be part of a spiritual community that teaches us this, there certainly was a moment of sadness to it. I wish as a child I had grown up in a church, or a home, or any community that had taught me I was perfect and lovable just the way I was and that I could achieve any dream in life I wanted. I grew up with the complete opposite message at home. Can you imagine how much more happy and fulfilled and excited about life our children would be and what amazing adults they would grow into if they were fed and nurtured with a message and philosophy like this? Wow.

And on another surprising spiritual note, I had lunch on Sunday with the gal who does pole parties here in Seattle. Much to my surprise, she expressed interest in attending Center For Spiritual Living. She is Pagan. And ironically, I was introduced to the church by a practicing Pagan. I'm so thrilled to make a connection in Seattle with some one who is both pole dancing devoted AND spiritual. Aren't we just a rare breed here in the Emerald City?
