When I finished getting ready this morning my first thought was that in this corset top paired with a loose white dress I looked like the embodiment of a medieval maiden brought into the modern world. Later, when I arrived at Kindred Spirits and did my daily Oracle reading for myself I pulled a card that stuck with me throughout the day. It was the “Forest” card from the Archetypes deck by Kim Krans. The most powerful message I received from this card was the importance of allowing oneself to be drawn deeper into the mystery of the world, with the deep knowing that even in darkness you are acquiring experience and insight needed to manifest your deepest desires. The card highlighted that the Forest was a place of duality, where you would meet both your darkest shadows as well as the glimmering light of the divine. I found myself inspired to create a fairytale based on this teaching, my love of fantasy and my own life experiences.
Today’s Featured Alien is Firefly, on Instagram as
@fireflyoshenisis. I was at a bar when I first encountered firefly. When I go out I like to be in own bubble but I simply could not take my eyes off of Firefly. She was strikingly beautiful and her style is one of the boldest that I have ever seen. Truly she was so magnetic that I had to walk over to her, introduce myself and ask if I could feature her on Alien Aesthetic.
Her creativity is evident in the way she adorns herself. Every piece I’ve seen her in is absolutely striking, yet she makes it look effortless in a way that only she could achieve. To me fashion is truly about wearing the colors of your soul on your skin and Firefly embodies that energy in an explosive way. In her own words, “what fashion means to me? Fashion is all about expression, it’s all about versatility, I don’t see shirts and pants and necklaces, I just see fabrics and pieces. A shirt could be a skirt, a necklace could be a garter belt. It’s a chance to show yourself before you even speak and I think it’s beautiful.”
