Slip Into Something....Vintage. And Fashionable! December 13 2015, 0 Comments

A fab selection of vintage full slips just added to the website! Take a cue from beautiful women from past and present....there is nothing more devastating the slip! See the collection here   .

French Vogue shows how the slip (and slip dress) inspires and shines as a fashion staple (and it wasn't just in the 90s!). See the article here. 

 

 

Modernize the slip with flannel, leather or layered over a tee! Add glamour with fur or just bare, shimmering skin.


so cinch me January 25 2014, 1 Comment

I have a love/hate relationship with corsets, in concept and in real life. On the one hand (in concept), I can see the beauty of them and the importance in the way they define how women were perceived and perceieved themselves throughout fashion history. On the other, I can see how they damaged women physically and mentally. In my own life, I've purchased one and worn in a few times. I read a great article about a woman who bought one and how it changed her life…helped her posture, helped her learn how to "feel" when her stomach was actually full resulting in a stronger back and weight loss, as well as being beneficial to her self esteem. It was with this in mind when I bought mine. Got it, uncinched, re-cinched. Did not love it. The over the bust stuck out oddly and made clothing over it look weird. I persevered, wore it for 2 hours that day…and then days after found every reason NOT to wear you can think of. Had physical work to do, had to work online and sit a lot…all kinds of reasons. I suppose I should try again. 

 

With that said, it's Cinch-Up Saturday over on the Facebook page! Corsetry goodness.
