new corset goofin'

I feel kind of guilty.

That corset was bought at a rock-bottom price from a company that makes them in China. But pinstripes and black leather and buckles? I COULDN'T STOP MYSELF. It's like a Naughty Steampunk Librarian corset. All of my other corsets are handcrafted by hardworking artisans, and I feel more than a little ashamed of myself for going cheap.

My guilt is somewhat assuaged by the fact that I found that vintage black jacket at a local secondhand store today and paid easily three times what I wanted to spend for it.

That balances out, right?

In any case, consider my stressful day partially soothed by the application of corsetry.

Lunchtime Poll:

Which wardrobe staple makes you feel better on a yucky day?

Nice!! Wish I had a job where I could get away with wearing corsets!

Always have a cocoon-like cardigan on hand for sucky-day emergencies...
