More Lingerie

Okay. So I found photos on my computer of the post that I referred to (but can't seem to locate) in my post about the Kiki de Montparnasse garter tank. They follow. I still like the girdle she's wearing (it's vintage from Pixxi), but I think I've found one that's a little more my style...

This pretty thing is from Bordelle's Autumn Winter 2009 collection. Love love love. It would be great over a completely plain bodycon dress and some loud jewelry. Probably pearls. Mmm. If only.

Hmmm. So maybe a better option that would just hint at the look I was thinking about in the post below would be some over-the-knee boots. They are supposed to be big this fall. And though I admit that usually I groan whenever this style is "revived" (I've rarely actually seen anyone wear over-the-knee boots in real life), it did look really hot on the girls in Isabel Marant's Fall 2009 show...

Garter Tank

I've loved this Kiki de Montparnasse garter tank ever since I saw it years ago on Shopbop, but I've always thought of it as entirely impractical (Kiki de Montparnasse is a lingerie brand). It's still around and I was thinking (inspired by some recent blogger posts - which I of course can no longer find - of girls wearing wonderful vintage girdles over their clothing) I might purchase it and wear it over jean shorts with some black over-the-knee socks. What do we think? Too slutty? Would it even work?

Saw these two vintage-inspired blouses on Matches today and just wanted to pair them with some high-waisted denim short-shorts, high heels, and bright red lipstick. Mmm.
