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.

    THANK YOU!!! I bought the 1st one :-) I have been looking for one just like this since I saw an old photo of Elizabeth Taylor and I saw yours yesterday on dc here now and was hoping you would do a post on it, it looks great on you

    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:
