There's something about Giles Deacon that I simply cannot resist. The color, the cut...stunning! :)

I love this. It can be so chic and sexy at the same time. At spring I'd love to try it under really loose cardigan.

Ahhh, I want them all! So hard to pick favorites but I wouldn't turn down the Dolce & Gabbana (no surprise they're good at it), Louise Goldin and the Giles Deacon. Oh, and I love the JPG one.... so similar to the one he did for Madonna ages ago! Fab post as always!

Petra Bellejambes said...

MizzJ said...

Oh my all these are so sexy! I love the look of a bustier, but they seem rather tricky to put on without assistance!

Oh and check out Part 1 of my Holiday Giveaway Bonanza to win a jar of Perricone MD's Cold Plasma!

Intrinsically Florrie said...

A trend Dolce do very well indeed :)
The Christian Cota is ever so pretty too.

I do have a, ahem, slight corset obsession and probably have a few more than the average woman. Well this post is lovely inspiration on how to wear them!

The Pocket Stylist said...

Love the Byblos, via nymag.com and the D&G one. Fab post. Bustiers are my fav!!!

Nina said...

Hi Couture Carrie!

Hmmm. Bustiers ... the bane of my existence. I'm unfortunately one of those gals who don't have full chests (translated, I'm as flat as a board, grr!). I've worn some with quite a lot of padding inside, though. Isn't that funny? I like the new idea though of layering the bustier on top of another constructed top. I'm excited to try this new look and see if it works for me. Thanks for posting this great inspiration board!
