keep your pants on

I believe I have given in - I have joined Look Book. So far I like it, I don't understand all of the hype, but I do enjoy it. While browsing the rows of style available I was completely blown away by the use of garter belts! While I've seen corsets outside of the bedroom beforeI had never seen this form of underwear as outerwear. The Pipeline seemed to notice an influx of garter belts too - much earlier than I did...



A loose top keeps the garter belt from looking exclusively like lingerie

 



Victoria's Secret: During the victorian era high society women were chaste and encouraged to be asexual while high society men were encouraged to have affairs with many women and even engage in sexual activity with prostitutes.

I am loving garter belts as outerwear, but I know I would get stared at for this. Cocorosa live in NYC and she did it and received a number of bad encounters in the city from it...

I do wish I could pull something like this off and look classy, not like a prostitute. But, I just don't think I could pull it off well =/
All these photos are lovely though.

They pull this look off so well, I wish I could, I couldn't pull it off so I will just admire from afar.

I love the first photo.. im not sure how it would work out in public though!

WendyB said...

Whoa -- that first photo -- beautiful but not for going out in public unless you're a working girl or going clubbing at a gay disco!

alice said...

I adore lookbook! And I applied but they didn't send me an invite code :S
How long did you wait for it?

And I agree, these lingerie are beautiful!

love the lingerie, but don't quite get it as day wear personally!

AsianCajuns said...

Yes I've seen these around the last couple of months. I was excited about the trend until I realize on a petite gal like moi I would look about 2 feet. Tell us if you rock it!
