My Valentine’s Day Outfit: Girdles, Wiggle Dresses, & Trench Coats

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

The Boyfriend and I had a fantastic Valentine’s weekend! On Friday, we went out to dinner to celebrate my appearances on WiseBread and The Consumerist (he’s amazingly supportive of my lingerie blog). Then on Saturday, we started Valentine’s Day a bit early and went out for tapas at a local wine bar followed by a burlesque show put on by the delightful performers at Columbia City Cabaret. He doesn’t read my blog, so I feel okay saying this here… but I really, really like him. Like, a lot.

Okay… enough gushing! Onto my outfit. The trench coat comes from Gryphon NY, the dress is by Heartbreaker Fashion (only $50 and handmade to order!), the belt is by Betsey Johnson, the corselette (another name for a girdle dress) is from Kiss Me Deadly, the knickers are from Secrets in Lace, the stockings are fully-fashioned vintage purchased at Dollhouse Bettie (unfortunately, they’re too torn up to ever wear again), and the pearl necklace was won in a giveaway over on Cafe Fashionista 

So… what do you think of my little ensemble? And did you all wear anything special today?

    All superb m'dear. The corselette is a delight of course, but the dress… lovely Mad Men feel to it.

    You look terrific. Hope the weekend was nothing but fun, and the b-friend is a lucky, and presumably, happy man.

    Hehe, are you sure the bf is not reading? :) Even then it's an okay thing to say! A very lovely outfit and I just love how you wore pearls for V'Day! The necklace looks perfect with the lingerie too!

    I should hope any man in his right mind would be supportive of his girlfriend's *lingerie* blog! If it were, like, a blog about ugly-ass hair clips that's one thing, but this is underwear we're talking about here!

  19. Kelly says:

    OMG, you look mouth watering! Love the lingerie (of course), very tasteful yet oh so sexy! ;^) And what's that I see a hint of, some strappy shoes perhaps? Show us!

  26. Jerica Truax says:

    Girl you look amazing!!! =) As always but extra amazing for Valentines day! hehehe

    I did wear something special. I went to Macy's on Saturday and got a red turtleneck top and a cute black mini skirt ($5 each!). So I wore those with black tights and pumps.

    Felt good =)

    You look beautiful….luck boyfriend :)

    Great outfit, great execution. You had to meet at the restaurant; if I picked you up at home and knew what you had on and under it would have been takeout for the night.
