I'm super happy! I had actually planned on making a blog post about make up today, but then (exciting) things happened, and I had to post about this instead!
(Don't worry, make up blog post is coming this weekend instead!)
One of my best friends, Kristin, came to my house today to bring along my Christmas present. I fell in love.
She gave me this incredibly beautiful corset! I am absolutely in love with it! It's in my favorite color, with really pretty lace detail at the top and bottom. I've been wanting a corset for a long time, so this gift was Perfect.
(If you're reading this Kristin, you are absolutely amazing. I love you. Thank you!)
The material is really nice, with really pretty detail. It has plastic boning, so it doesn't do a super good job of making my waist much smaller. But I can over look that for the fact that it's so pretty! I'll buy an expensive corset with metal boning soon, I'm sure, but this will still probably be one of my favorite corsets ever. (Kristin knows my tastes so well!)
This will definitely not be the last time you see this corset. I'm going to be doing my best to find different pieces of clothing that work with it so I can wear it around more often! Corsets are, after all, one of my biggest obsessions. (Above even sunglasses!)
And in case anyone was wondering, I don't remember where I bought the skirt (I've had it for forever), but the wrist cuffs were bought at Lolita Garden. (You should totally check out her stuff. She has some pretty adorable things up for sale now.)
And then, after receiving this gorgeous corset, my day was made even better (I didn't think that was possible!) by winning a Grecian Goddess Barefoot Sandal from Catherine Cole Studio!
It's available in gold and silver, but I picked the silver option (since I figured it would match possible outfits better.) I really wanted the gold too though! It was hard to pick!
