dressed up like a lady: Who could use a boost?

Who could use a boost?

I had a lovely birthday -- thank you to everyone who sent me such wonderful birthday wishes! I had to postpone my birthday party (which will be a pajama-clad cartoon watching party) for a week, but maybe I'll post pictures of it, if anybody wears their PJ's besides me!

Dress: No tag
Shoes: Aldo

Anyway, can I just say how happy I am that the bustier look has come back into style? The last time it was popular, I was just a kid and was not allowed to wear bra-looking things (not that it would have looked anything but creepy anyway), but I distinctly remember looking at a picture of a bustier-top clad babe on the Guns'n'Roses pinball machine at our local arcade and wishing I were a grownup gal who could wear such things.

  1. You! Look! Amazing! That dress is super duper, and I love the bustier top as well. I also love wearing my PJs at parties - whenever I'm at a sleepover I change into my PJs ASAP.

  13. Love the dress- you look awesome! I feel the same way about the bustier/corset dresses. I'm glad it didn't go by the wayside completely. I need to get my hands on one (and then find a good seamstress that can take in cups ;)

    Truly a sexy and well fitting dress. Love, love, love the outfit on you.

    Such a diamond you are. Able to pull off outfits that would make me cringe to see on anyone else.

    Beauteous!
