Hot-Hot-Hot! Weekend Wear

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

My new favorite thing to wear when it’s unbearably hot? A vintage cotton bustier! I wore mine to our pop-up this weekend – which was fabulous, thank you to everyone who came out – and got a ton of compliments. I’m telling you, there is nothing more fun, fashionable and heat-proof than one of these retro pieces. Wear one with a high-waist pair of shorts or a skirt for more femme/pinup effect. I found mine on Etsy; there’s a similar one here, a less girlie version in leather here and a really cute gingham one here.

    Thanks, Jennifer! I’m so so glad you scored one! If anyone else is looking, here’s another option. I love the sides of this more boho style:

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours lately, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

  23. LeonKSampsel March 13, 2016 4:50 am

    For starters I want to say terrific blog! I needed a simple
    question through which I’d like to ask when you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you will center yourself
    and clear your ideas before writing. We have had a tough time clearing my mind to get my thoughts out.
    I actually do enjoy writing but it just appears like the
    very first ten or fifteen minutes are wasted just figuring out where to start.

    Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I in addition to my friends have already been analyzing the great strategies found on your web site and so all of a sudden came up with an awful suspicion I had not thanked the web site owner for those techniques. The men happened to be totally joyful to read through all of them and already have in fact been taking pleasure in those things. Thanks for actually being so thoughtful and for making a decision on some perfect information most people are really wanting to know about. Our own honest apologies for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.
