Of “corset” looks good!

I have decided to begin corset training, hence my cheesy post title! I’ve looked pretty far into this topic and am excited to begin!

For those who don’t know, corset training or tight-lacing is the act of wearing a corset on a frequent basis for several hours per day in order to alter the waist into a smaller size, creating more of an hourglass shape. Corsets are gorgeous in and of themselves as alternatives to a tank top or cami, and quite sexy anyway. I own three of them already and as part of my beginning this new journey, I just purchased a fourth corset from eBay: a longer underbust corset with spiral steel boning in it (according to my research, that is the kind you want.)

I’m new to this process, so if anyone would like to learn more, I am posting links to websites that I felt extremely informative on debunking myths and introducing newbies like me to the world of corsetry:

Style Icon: Erin Wasson

erin-wasson-net-worth11Model, actress, fashion designer.  Erin Wasson is one badass and beautiful bitch. For the longest time I didn’t even know who she was, but I’d catch a glimpse of “that one girl” in different ads or in movies and realized that nearly everything she wears reflects my own fashion sense. She is a major style icon of mine, primarily because her taste is very well suited to my own.

While our facial structures are quite different, and I am not claiming that we look alike in any respect, I feel that we resemble each other a bit in styling and fashion choices, as well as having similar hair/skin coloring and both possessing catlike eyes. Purr.

Here is a compilation of some of my favorite images of this beauty:

Love those eyes.

Trampled dreams

I found the hoof shoes of my dreams on eBay and someone purchased them before I even had a chance! Noooo! Curse you, ‘buy-it-now’!

Seriously, if anyone knows where I can get a pair of hoof heels, please let me know!

eBay, Bebe.

So, eBay is an insanely awesome gold mine of phenomenally good deals–if you know where to look. Check out this BeBe faux fur coat with hot pink satin lining … Cute, right? You know what’s even cuter? The price tag. Read it and believe in the power of eBay: I snagged this coat for $32 … A mere fraction of it’s original price.

The secret to eBay is sorting the auction search results by “price plus shipping, lowest first,” and last minute bidding. Anyone else have any eBay tips of success stories?

Scary, sexy shoes.

Industrial steampunk sexy.

Life has been hectic to say the least. Between moving,

work, exercise, and a fully booked modeling schedule till December, I’ve had zero time to blog.

Currently, I’m trying to find the perfect pair of shoes for an avant-garde Photoshoot I have with an Austin photographer on the 31st. I’m obsessing over horse hoof heels, but I can’t find any for sale for the life of me. Anyone know where I can get some? I’d pay almost anything for them.

Check out these bizarre and delicious shoes… Where the hell can I buy such awesomeness!?

Andy Warhol inspired?
