The latex clothing trend seems to be growing, and it’s not hard to see why! Erase the years by slipping on one of these and you can look like a perfect doll. I found this particular dress very striking.
A beautiful, paneled lace top. I like the description for this: “sexy, but not over the top” – haha. Sexy is sometimes overdone, isn’t it? But it’s all subjective. In Japan, it seems to be fine to wear the tiniest short-shorts you can find. Wear a tank top and you’re likely to be the victim of leering at the very least. It’s the complete opposite in North America, I find. Anyway, despite this top’s “modesty”, I still wouldn’t be able to wear it to work. A casual night out with friends, yes. Lots of other nice stuff in this store as well, check it out!
This piece feels more “on trend” – less alt, but I liked the styling and it’s still kinda different, in my eyes. Plus, it looks high quality, not always something you get when you pay $80+ to a chain store for a slave-produced garment!
Michele Morgan, based in Long Beach, brings you gorgeously hand-dyed silk scarves and tops in her Etsy shop, SilkEscape. I loved the colours in this top in particular. Her tops are large-sized and adjustable, allowing a perfect fit on anyone. And you can’t go wrong as she’s offering 30% off right now…
This piece caught my eye and I still love it. In fact, there are many gorgeous pieces in Kelsey’s shop – it was difficult to pick only one to feature (as is often the case). But a pink tailcoat? Too unique to pass up 😉
I featured a similar, crocheted, gorgeous fringe halter top from Helen’s shop in an Etsy treasury I recently made to showcase items similar in style and colour to the ruffle skirts at Haute Revel (treasury link). It’s so pretty, I just had to feature her shop here. Helen’s been crocheting for 26 years, and I shows in her mastery of both the work and the hot designs she produces. Definitely check out a few pages on her shop page!
This is no simple fringe skirt – it’s made with real chains, individually hand-attached. Fabulous. The other items in her store are also worth a long peak. Nice.
