Kitten with a blade

October's monthly shopping frenzy

I drove all the way up to Alderwood where they said they had my size medium skirt on hold. Guess what, they couldn't find it. They looked all over the place too. Since the size small was too small and they lost the only medium the store had, I had to settle for buying the large. The manager felt bad that they lost the medium so she gave me another $10 off the skirt, even though it was already $20 off.

Then I promptly went into the rest of the mall and blew about $100. I work really freakin' hard, I deserve it. For $50 I got a pair of those sneakers that have a wheel hidden in them that sort of turns them into skates. Except there is only a wheel in the back, none in the front like you would see on roller blades or roller skates. So I can't figure out how to use them. I'll work on it. It might be fun to wear them to the club and skate around the dance floor.

I also purchased the world's smallest skirt at Hot Topic:


If you look to the left of the picture you can see the ruler measures it at about 5 inches. Oy! The sad thing is that even though I paid $30 for this scrap of barely there fabric, I know I'll end up wearing it to just one fetish event and probably never wear it again. *shrug* That's just how it goes sometimes. It fits insanely low on my hips. It's beyond super lowrise, it's super DUPER lowrise. It almost covers my rear. I guess all that pole dancing made me think I was a stripper there for a minute, or at least want to dress like one at least once. That now makes two little plaid skirts I own, when you count this one that I purchased last month (but don't count the two school girl costumes I own).
Dancing in B&W

belly dancing

Just finished my belly dancing lesson this evening and I must say I'm a happy camper. My hip figure eights are finally smoothing out and starting to look fabulous! And I can even do them forward, backward, up and down. Yay! Now I think I need a belly dancing icon for these happy moods. I'm also starting to put moves together into a belly dance routine. I might even scrap the fairy costume I was working on and dress as a belly dancer to at least one Halloween party or event so I can practice my belly dancing in costume! Yay!

I also tried pole dancing in the new skirt and my 6 inch platform heels. Umm...wow. Lets just say I had a different experience than I've ever had in my short years of pole dancing. Actually exotic dancers are probably familiar with this feeling, but I'm not. At the S Factor studio where I learned pole dancing, they have students experiment with dressing up in different costumes that make them feel sexy, usually around the 3rd or 4th level classes. After my experience tonight, I can see why. When Pole For The Soul offers advanced classes, I will definitely be having the girls incorporate costumes or sexy outfits. It truly does transform the pole dancing experience. It's completely different than just showing up in your shorts and tank top. Yes indeed...even if I never wear that skirt outside my dance studio, it was worth every penny and then some.
