Blog_obsessivebWith the enormous success of this year’s Fashion Issue and GT’s first ever Win It and Wear It Contest, the writers of Obsessive Beauty have decided to launch a weekly fashion giveaway. You can score free fashionable items that were featured in the Fashion Issue. The prizes for this week’s first contest include a ring by August Mae Designs and a pair of luxurious lace panties from Manu.

Blog_ObsessivebpicBoth designs were featured in this year’s Fashion Issue. The vintage/romantic cocktail rings of August Mae Designs are making a huge splash at local retailer Stripe, with fashionistas flocking into the store in hopes of finding a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry from designers Jan Reehm and Sarah York. Likewise, Manu lingerie, created by Manuka Sanyal, has a large following with her high-end pajamas, underwear, and more items, sold online and at Cameron Marks. Actress Olivia Wilde of the television show, House, is a fan of the lingerie line.

I've never seen a season so versatile with jewelry as this season. You'll see embellishments, and leathers combined with jewels and chains. The designs are more artistic then what's usually out there, leaving me excited for this fall, and knowing Santa Cruz offers a variety of these things makes it even better!

Somebody's Sister

Only recently did I discover the pleasure of wearing sexy undergarments...just for me. So even at work when I'm grunting over someone's groceries, in a grimy pair of jeans and an even grimier work shirt, I can at least have the pleasure of knowing I look damn sexy underneath all of it! Then I'd go home, strip down to my Manu lingerie, slip on my August Mae cocktail ring, and relax whilst reading the latest Obsessive Beauty blog post!

I was drawn to August Mae's button-design rings for very sentimental reasons. My Grandmother had a collection of vintage buttons that I used to play with as a child! AND, I absolutely LOVE rings!

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
