My initial inspiration for this outfit was the halter top and skirt combination. When I put them together it really reminded me of French fashion. I added a beret to it and some Slink High shoes, but knew it needed just something more. I thought it really needs a ring to pull this off, one of those large pendant rings. I instantly thought about one of my favorite symbols the Fleur de Lis, which was a very influencial symbol in French history, as well as other ancient civilizations. I have always been a history buff, from the youngest I can remember I always wanted to be an archeologist. One thing that has always drawn my interest was symbolism and ancient civilizations. I had read several years ago about the Fleur de Lis and it’s rich and long history when I was working on a first life creation (A Fleur de Lis beadwoven necklace).
I started to do some research yesterday to see if I could put a small amount of information in my listing, to give a quick history of this symbol, however I got swept away yet again, with all of the information, and never even got the outfit released..lol Needless to say, there is far to much information to put here in regards to this famous symbol, other than some links for you to read if you are also interested in learning some of it’s rich and powerful history.
So after reading about it’s history and being re-inspired by this truly beautiful symbol, which to me represents the feminine principle, the goddess, mother nature, women and strength and beauty and life, I decided to incorporate it a bit more than just the ring and did a belt with the emblem as well as put the symbol on the shoes. I hope you like this outfit as much as I do. I will wear this outfit proudly, and feel empowered in my feminity and inner goddess.
