Black Velvet - If You Please

There is something about velvet. The very texture reminds me of my 90s childhood. My mother got me a burgundy velvet dress that I still have, not that I can wear it any longer, but some things have memories sewn in their every thread. I remember digging out cardigans, jackets, ponchos and myriad other things from old cranky cupboards, things that belonged to my mother, her sisters and some belonged to my grandparents. I loved the vintage musty smell they had. Even though my things are nowhere near as beautiful as those, I would love it if future generations dig something out that belonged to me and have the same feeling I did. Clothes are not merely superficial things used for our vanity, to look good. They all have stories, the older they are the better it is.
I got this very 90s black velvet dress, and my very first corset(clap for me) from Sensation of Night. The parcel arrived this Friday, well within 30 days of placing the order. Sensation of Night is a professional online retailer offering over 10,000 styles of sexy lingerie, costumes, swimwear, dresses and corsets, of course. They have free shipping worldwide and provide a secure shopping experience. And they have some kind of exciting offer going on for the customers all the time.

Now about the products - the corset was easy enough to put on and I didn't suffocate. So, ye(!!) for that. And it is the right fit. The dress is a tight fit. I will not be very comfortable wearing it without sufficient layering (would a leather jacket look insane with this?). But, when I wore them together it gave me photoshop worthy curves. And this is almost too sexy for my style. I will need to tone it down a bit I guess. But, the quality of both products is pretty good. The corset took off 2 inches off my waist smoothly and no suffocation at all! I am amazed, and frankly amused that this is not the torture device I always imagined it would be.

  6. What a stunning outfit, you look incredibly sexy in a subtle and understated way. I love how you've layered the corset over the velvet dress. I'm sure it will be your first of many! xxx

  8. Striking Debi! Love your hair with that dress. I had a similar one, only it was full length (straight, formal gown). It had netting at the top.

  10. Oh la la!!! Boobies *_* Seriously though, this dress is so dreamy :D I think it would look even more bad ass with the leather jacket! Can't believe this corset is actually comfortable :D I wore a corset once and I couldn't breath through the whole day, I never wore it again :D

    1. That happened to me once with this shape wear thing I got, the problem was it was the wrong size. And then definitely going to give the leather jacket a go with this :D
