When I was looking for my first corset, I wandered how to choose the best one for me. All the models were very attractive but I didn't know much about the structure and making of a corset. Back then, there were few tutorials online so I had to learn along the way. My favorites quickly became the steel boned corsets that allow to pull in the waist a lot without creasing. Which is one thing my new Red Burlesque Corset from The Burgandy Boudoir does perfectly. It's great for someone who is more used to wearing corsets and it's nice and thick thanks to the cotton lining. It would also work great for a busty girl since it has plenty of room at the top. The extra features are the modesty panel at the back and the slots for inserting garters. It makes quite a comfortable wear and the outer fabric has a gorgeous sheen, plus the color and pattern were just like in the product photos, no faults at all! And it's also perfect for an early stage of waist training, when you need to get used to the feel of a sturdy corset. The laces it came with are also great, which is rare for an OTC corset! They make it easy to lace and unlace and are thick enough to hold it all in place.

Make sure to check out the rest of the shop to find your ideal corset. There are plenty of models to choose from for all occasions, underbusts included! And they come with a lovely thank you card too!

 As usual during the summer (for me), it's been a crazy month. Between the laptop breaking, traveling and shooting a fashion campaign, I've somehow found a few days to breathe as well. It was really nice to have a break and enjoy seeing old friends and familiar places. And so the photos below were taken on a quick visit to Amboise, on a very changing weather (it was sunny at one point and 2 minutes later we were taking shelter from the pouring rain). 

I took with me my new bag from Tidestore which I absolutely fell in love with, because of its size and practicality. It can fit my camera, netbook, wallet, phone and mp3 player all at the same time without being huge. And it has a series of zippers and compartments that I adore, since I have a hard time finding my stuff in a one compartment bag (sound familiar?). I had initially chosen it just because of the pretty tassel accessory, but it proved to be a worthy companion! 

The shoes were also a pair I wanted for a while, they look a lot like a design by Nicholas Kirkwood. They are very comfortable and look great when worn. They fit true to size so feel confident enough to buy your own. I got one size bigger out of fear they would be too small and they ended up being too big. Oh well! :)

I have realized that many of the shops I've been reviewing sell an array of wedding dresses and that I have unintentionally been writing about them in a hectic way. So from now on I plan to be more organized and to bring you one gorgeous wedding gown each month, in the hope to inspire some brides to be (or for girls like me, that just like looking at them and thinking "maybe one day").
This gown that has the honor to inaugurate this new category comes from MissWeddingWear.com (http://www.missweddingwear.com) . And because this is the time when many brides would be planning a summer wedding, I had a look through their beach wedding dresses (http://www.missweddingwear.com/beach-wedding-dresses-c-9/).  A few gowns stood out for me and were a close call but eventually I went for this one. Imagine this setting: a luxurious resort by the beach in the hot south, the sun setting and candles lighting your aisle through the moist sand, walking towards the altar as the first stars begin shining. Quite romantic, right? A sleeveless dress will keep you from overheating while the sheer organza cape will add class and protect you from the breeze (just don't keep it too close to the flames, safety fist!) And the stars embroidered to the side will reflect the evening sky, while also looking very aristocratic (thinking about Sisi's hair star pins here).
So what do you think? Would you have a beach wedding? And how would you set it up?
