Events like SEAF are not only a great place to see and be seen, they’re also an excellent excuse for dressing up. I had the chance to pull out my custom Totally Waisted corset (which I haven’t worn since September — last seen in my […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Stella McCartney… Wolford… La Perla… these three names are forever associated with high-end lingerie, and they’ve all released an impressive array of bodysuits in the past few seasons. Sadly, at hundreds of dollars each, these garments are unaffordable for all but the most impressive incomes. So what’s a lustful lingerie addict to do? Find the budget “knock-offs,” of course!
