Sounds like an amazing burlesque costume, but it’s not. It would actually be an awful burlesque costume – there are no rip-away snaps or things to unlace. I’m not even wearing stockings. My shoes are sneakers, for goodness’ sake.
You can’t see it too well in the photos, but the skirt has several pleats all the way around, and a bubble hem at the bottom. It’s a pretty intense skirt – it feels more intense than it looks, though. I can verify that now, post-photo. When you’re wearing it, it feels like you’re wearing a tutu, but it translates to a shape that pretty recognizable and not overly dramatic.
The shirt is an organic cotton top from ZARA – I snagged it the week that ZARA was available for shopping online. Couldn’t help myself! It was $10 and organic cotton! Who could blame me?
I’ve been living in these shoes lately:
Insanely comfortable, I totally ran in them, and they make me feel 500% more badass than I do in regular sneakers. There’s no shame in my wedge sneaker game.
