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?
