Consignment Week: Corset Top

Red blouse (H&M, NYC), black and white plaid corset top (Le Chateau, consignment), grey plaid pants (Vero Moda, The Bay), black leather belt (NYC), black and white shoes (Fluevog), silver and white stone necklace/earrings.
I really like this outfit - and it got the Ruth seal of approval. I got a lot of compliments on it today, actually. The corset top is too young for me on its own (it makes me think of my old club-hopping/dancing days), but perfectly appropriate for work when worn over a shirt and with tailored pants.

Off to dinner!

Tomorrow: plaid shirt and denim vest

  1. Looks super cute! I had a bustier, but had to let it go because it was just too long and loose.

  2. Great picture! The plaid makes it seem very tailored and professional. :)

  3. Thanks so much, rebecca. It's an outfit that's definitely going to go into rotation (with a different blouse, accessories and shoes, of course).

    Kasmira, you'd look killer in the right bustier. I smell a shopping trip. ;)

  4. Cute outfit!!! Did you have to do anything to keep the bustier up all day? I steer clear of them , because i'm nervous i'll have to keep pulling it up all day.

  5. Thanks, *lady d*! No, the bustier has rubberized elastic tape along the top edge, inside. The giant belt also helped it stay put.
