i don't think there's anything better to define feminine than a corset. paired with red lips and any wonderwoman would be unstoppable!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Katy Mary said...

love these!! my prom dress was a corset with a tulle skirt, loved it.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Oh there is just something undeniably sexy and feminine about corsets!

Petra Bellejambes said...

Carrie, bless your heart for bringing the corset. Completely in my aesthetic sweet spot.

The Zac Posen is pretty beyond words, but for me, I think I could actually do the Tibi in broad daylight.

For more private moments, I favor the La Perla of course...

I hope you get to wear pretty things this weekend...
