Since I saw (the very grown up) Dakota Fanning in V magazine a few months ago, I’ve been quietly (and slightly obsessively) toying with the idea of a bustier/corset worn over a less-than fitted sweater:

In my head, the balance of a reasonably chunky textured sweater and a pretty lace corset is so artistically perfect that you kind of want to… wear nothing else – which would be a bad idea. Please don’t do it. Thus, the hot pants, knee high socks, and assorted lovelies that satisfy my current love of feathers, flowers and beaten up leather in the form of Campbell harness boots for boyish charm.
I made that up :)
Nonetheless, now that I’ve seen the image in my head in front of me, I’m seriously considering putting this into practice.
Thoughts?
Happy Monday! And my giveaway is now closed – I’ll be announcing the winner tomorrow :) Get excited people!
