Everlasting Femme Fatale
I have always been a corset and bustier (/buːstˈjeɪ/) girl. From the figure hugging lines to the feminine allure I love it all. I have recently been re-coveting the 90’s take on the commanding commodity

These 90’s looks took the ‘edgy-girl’ to a whole new level.
The abundance of glam-femme in lace and satins mixed with denim or high-waist trousers exemplified the pinnacle balancing act of the decade (& for decades to come)
Lingering lingerie throughout the day.
These pieces are beautiful why not get your moneys-worth out of them, styling them into your daytime outfits and show these works of art- serving looks every where you go.
The trends of visible under-garment allurement from garter-belts to bralettes have revved up again and we are here for it. It is important to remember balance and selecting a piece to fit this look and not give away the whole farm as a walking-peepshow.
Elements of rigidity such as Belts, Leather, and Denim translate a finished look, in balancing proportions.
It also brings a relaxed component into the equation making the look more practical, and appropriate for daywear
From Dolce, to Dior, from runways to backstage groupies this trend has had the trickle down and lasting effect surpassing the lifespan that most styles and trends can endure

Playing with textures is the key.
Pairing structure with delicate softness presents the perfect balance of juxtaposition; not unlike donning the “evening pieces” in the day. Also selecting seemingly conservative pieces with risque will provide the sexy-edge you’ve been looking for.

The simplicity of this look is captivating. A cape is forever a “win” our book. And the added hint of lace mesh, refreshingly not floral- exudes sophistication and elegance
Fashion mirrors our life and events.
Two worlds collide when doffing a “power-suit.” Opting for an accentuated blazer and ultra-femme bustiers, corsets/lingerie; the emergence of the feminine figure- both internally and externally in tandem with the business-entrepreneurial “head” we achieve a fearless combination, embracing every part of ourselves, how far we have come and our accomplishments. (not to mention the freedom of what to wear can you imagine having to wear a corset under dress daily?! no, thanks I’ll take 2 desserts, please)
