I want...

As a result of chatting with a certain young man, part of me wants to find an excuse to take a trip to Sydney so I can go shopping at Sax Fetish (NSFW).

However, that wouldn't work because the people I'd want to go shopping with aren't in Sydney.

I could order via mail-order, but that means that I don't get to try things on first (something I much prefer when clothes shopping) and secondly, that means I don't get other peoples opinions when trying them on.

However, Lucrezia and De Sade (the people who run Sax Fetish) have a shop in Melbourne in Fitzroy (441 Brunswick Street Fitzroy), so I'm thinking of organising a shopping expedition with certain people to there. Those people include Mark and Hilary, of course. I value your opinions.

I still want one of those Roman style leather kilts that I saw when I was in Sax Fetish at Mardi Gras this year. Thoughts?

That's the one in North Rd? Their customer service leaves a bit to be desired...

More than happy to wander down with you but this weekend is all full of Dwarfcon and much geekery. Drop us a line about when you want to go and we'll work something out, I am sure we could convince Mark to come along too.

I think we might be able to twist his arm (and other body parts).

L&D's is a shop of great temptations and fun joy. Kite's collar comes from there, and I usually drop in a few times a year to pick up toys of various sorts.
If you can't convince anyone else to go with you we could accompany you. Your one problem is that you are exactly the style of the guy who is usually working on the front counter, you might find yourself grabbed and ravished :0... but probably not as the last 2 times I have been in there his boy has dropped in unexpectedly.
The BEST thing is because they are the source of fun stuff, they are willing, able and eager to custom work if what you want isint in stock

Haven't been to the one here, but I really loved the Sax Fetish in Sydney. I could have really spent a hell of a lot of money there.

You are positively evil, and I think I'm going to have to make some sort of secret compartment in my wardrobe to hide the leather stuff I just happen to... acquire... over the years now. Also, I need more pairs of jeans... and that was an odd afterthought.

By the way, can someone tell me what happens to leather when it gets... uh... wet?
halloranelder

Wet from what?

Water won't harm leather and can be just dried off. Chlorine and salt water are harmful to the tanning methods used, so should be avoided.

As for other effects... Hmm, I'll have to ask someone who knows. I'll check that when I get home.

Ah, so swimming in leather would probably be out of the question? X3

Jul. 13th, 2007 06:13 am (UTC)
Probably not a good idea, no.

I just sneezed three times for no reason. You talking about me? Or is it someone else this time?

Jul. 13th, 2007 06:22 am (UTC)
Thinking about you a lot, but not talking about you, so you can't blame me for this one.

Ah. Maybe it was Trinity and Chris, then... Hm. Oh well.

It depends on what sort of "wet" as well as the leather.
If it is finished on both sides, most human bodily fluids wont do doodly or squit as long as you clean em off with warm soapy water. IF its not finished both sides then the rough side (the inside of the skin) can take damage from too much water and is absorbent so try not to splash it with things smelly (you know what I'm talking about you bad boy)
Most fetishwair made by L&D's/Sax is double sided, carefully stiched, and can stand up to orgasms of either gender, a little blood, light waterplay, ice cubes, &C. Keep alcohol off it as it will stain, split, dehydrate and damage.
Remember to "wash" the stuff with a cloth dipped in warm soapy water. Oiling it or saddle soaping it can also provide for interesting textures as well as giving a wonderful shiny appearance.

My My mistress straps seems to know an awful lot about this sort of thing hurrm?

Indeed. o.o And what's this interesting texture you speak of?
rantinan
Jul. 13th, 2007 08:32 am (UTC)
Smooth, slippery shiney. Ahh.
Saddle soap will make it soft and smooth, oil slipery and smooth

The "Marsupial Bondage" page on the site is... simply the best thing ever.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
