The Collection
Fashions of the Ashen Twilight House

The Ashen Twilight House features a mixture of history mixed with culture, edgy paranormal sensibility and modern style. Most members come from everywhere from Dahomey (now Benin) West Africa to the highlands of Scotland and beyond with their style reflecting their environment and personalities.

Heroine: Ariya
Race: Fae

Ariya hails from the Aziza fae realm outside of Dahomey West Africa. Most of her clothes consist of dresses and wraps in the colors of her nation made from the cloth spun from talented hands of her city village. When Ariya crosses over to the human world, she still keeps her love for all things dressy but mixes it up with edgier and darker colors, like black and purple, which coordinates with her love interest Jace. As she spends more time away from the fae realm and loses herself in his, her wardrobe takes on a dramatic change.

Ariya and Jace together are a juxtaposition of light and dark fantasy with her being fae and he being a Nightwalker. She pairs off her wardrobe consisting of soft satins, silks and leather with the iciness of crystal and a pretty emerald studded Claddagh ring given to her by Jace as a sign of his commitment and love to her. The ring itself comes with its own Irish tale of love, distance and a memories of a confession of love that lasts through time.

Jace's history is a long, dark and bloody one. He comes from a rags background which soon turns to riches as he gathers wealth by traveling across the world under human eyes with his Uncle Julian Archane and the Ashen Twilight House patriarch Daoine Oberon alongside him. He starts out draped in the tartan of his clan the Archanes and eventually dons clothes in the era as the centuries go on, always the most stylish and clean cut.

Jace's modern style is top notch like his brethren. He wears designer suits, shiny shoes and the occasional sunglasses to shield his eyes, especially with the early rise of the lethal sun's rays.

  1. I love the outfit for A Kiss of Ashen Twilight, especially the boots. If I were going out at night, I'd probably wear jeans and a fancy t-shirt with my converse, because I'm not a really dressy person. I'd probably show up at prom in jeans if I could. And my dream date would be a good friend who agreed to go with me on whatever crazy scheme we came up with.

  3. I love Jace's style. The Jacket suit is particularly eye grabbing (and so is the model). I have some fashion compilations of my own on Polyvore. It's a fun way to enter your character's head outside of writing. A Nightwalker sounds like a great protector.

    For a night out on the town a nice LBD (little black dress), a pair of low heeled shoes and a silver clutch would do wonders. My date would be a handsome man who will pick me up via limo or a Lexus. Hey why not travel in style, it's my night.

  4. Great night out outfits, ladies! Not to mention comfortable. :-D I love the idea of traveling in style, too. :-D

    Sheena-Kay, I'd love to follow you on Polyvore! What's your page/name there?

  5. The outfit for A Kiss of Ashen Twilight is just awesome!!!
    For a night out at town I'd wear a pencil skirt with an airy tank and sandals!!

  7. A night out? I would be wearing formal, because if I was going out for the night it would be somewhere posh of course ^.^ Much what I wore to church today. High skirt, patterned tank top, leggings and also a blazer. Perfect :D
