Happy Monday everyone!

Summer Layers-12

Lately, I’m having a lot of fun creating faux jumpsuit and romper looks from separates.  It’s like playing with puzzle pieces until they connect together.  For this summer look, I paired my vintage corset (an oldie but super favorite!) over a light silk blouse and white shorts to create a faux one-piece.  This corset proves to be super versatile, because as autumn rolls around, it also layers well over turtlenecks and sweaters.  Super excited to restyle it for fall!

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?  Backwards and forwards?  Must give it a try!  Turning the blouse around, it does somewhat work.  Mystery Man immediately commented two birds with one stone!  Even though we share the same level of excitement, there’s tucking at the bust and shoulders which made it look a little unflattering.  Close, but no cigar.
