In previous posts, I’ve shown you two Venetian Lace chokers from eBay: one in black and one in magenta. After ordering these two masterpieces, I was craving something larger and more dramatic, but simple and without added embellishment. I searched and I finally found the perfect piece of lace. It was intended to be sewn around the neckline of a top, but I just added a clasp to the ends. It just requires a tiny piece of fashion tape near the center point to keep it from twisting around while I’m dancing.
I wore my purple brocade corset from Corset Story, which Mr. Kitty gave me for my birthday a couple of years ago. This was previously featured for my Lace Theme. I finally have this one all broken in, so by the end of the night I was dancing as if I was born wearing it. So comfortable!
The top in this outfit was my first-ever clothing purchase on eBay. This is an example of flowing sleeves done JUST right. I added the fancy trim around the elbows and neckline myself. The skirt is a burnout velvet number with handkerchief hem from Shrine Hollywood.
My hair was shockingly well behaved that night, so here is a gratuitous hair shot. 🙂
I’ve never asked this before, and I’m curious to know where my corset-wearing readers get their favorite pieces. So, what is your favorite corset company?
