Silver Sparkle Leggings

HELLO, HERE IS ANOTHER POST ABOUT MY HOLIDAY PARTY LEGGINGS. Because they were all covered up by my giant Swan Lake tunic, and because I loved them more than I thought I would, and because things started getting weirder and weirder the more I posed in them, well … here you go …

Hey look, it’s my poet blouse! After wearing it practically every time I left my house over the summer, I decided to give it a rest, but when I pulled it out again for today’s shoot, I realized what a fool I’ve been. THIS IS A PERFECT BLOUSE. I WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR IT.

Pants are good too. Super high waisted with inserts at the hips – which look a lot like football player pads, and which were very much not intended, but I had to do something when I realized the fabric had almost no stretch, and I had made them extra-tight, and the seams were literally popping apart as I wore them. HAWT.

I have legs. And I know how to use legs.

I do wish they were slightly less cropped, but they were never supposed to be regular pants. Maybe I’ll just put a seam there and add a little more to the length. I mean, what the hell, they already have weird hip gussets and they are GLITTERY AF. An extra seam at the bottom isn’t going to hurt anyone.

Speaking of, the glitter in this fabric is constantly shedding and leaving little piles on the floor wherever I go. So magical.

Pleated Chiffon Bustier

HELLO I MADE A FLOUNCY BUSTIER. I first made it about a year ago for a sample sale, but it was never quite right, so I thought I’d clean it up and restyle it a bit for a recent night out … AT THE CLUB.

I was a little concerned about my bustline and how much attention it was receiving, but also when in Rome, but also my eyes are up here, if you know what I mean.

It’s basically a remnant of pleated silk chiffon PAINSTAKINGLY gathered and sewn over a corsolette from an old sample bridal gown of mine. The original stretch net and hook and eye closure are exposed in back. I need to tack down that edge, apparently.

TASSELS, BECAUSE I CERTIFIABLY CANNOT HELP MYSELF THEY ARE TOO DELIGHTFUL.

I like the flounce traveling up the straps a bit. Edges are left raw, because I’M LAZY.

But also because it adds to the movement.

I’d really love to wear this over a long maxi dress or even a white t-shirt and jeans.

But for now I’m just concerned about all of the images I didn’t post that apparently my iPhone has filed under ‘brassiere.’ GOODBYE.
