Heather and The Cookie

In my last post, Harnessed but not Bound, I showed you a harness bra and a faux fur stole by Flaws of Couture/FOC Details styled with a cocktail dress from SexyPlus Clothing. Well, Sasha of FOC was not only my inspiration for the harness bra, but she also came to my store wearing this killer outfit featuring the stole (called the “Cookie”) and I shamelessly copied her – but that’s pure flattery right Sasha?

She paired it with this structured long line heather grey jacket from Forever 21 Plus Sizes. Isn’t her outfit the epitome of casual chic?

I wouldn’t have looked twice at this piece unless I had seen it on Sasha. Sometimes you just never know until you see it on someone or try it on.

I loved the structured, polished elongated look of the jacket against it’s more casual heather grey fabric.

It’s a superb light weight comfortable piece for shopping, work, weekend strolls, movie night and I know I’ll get good mileage from it. I love the large pockets too. I wore basic black leggings and flat knee-high wide calf boots. I am wearing the 1X in the jacket and the fit is true to size. The sleeves are a little long but that’s because I’m a lil short 😉

Thanks to Sasha, I know how to dress it up in style.

I got lots of compliments that day, so I know it was a good look.

Harnessed but not Bound

You may have had your fill of my casual looks lately, so I thought I’d hit you HARD with this sexy holiday special.

A few months ago I saw the super stylish Sasha (shown below) of the blog Flaws of Couture feature this super sexy strappy thing I had never seen before. It stopped me dead in my tracks.

I read her blog and discovered that it was called a “harness bra” and fell in love. They’re hand made by plus size fashion blogger @_classycurves_ from Germany who sells them under the brand @harnessbra_love on Instagram and offers international shipping.

She asked me what size bra I wore, and that was it – she was off to custom make mine. It was only $28 US + $3 shipping.

It arrived quickly and the fit was perfect. It’s actually two separate pieces, but like Sasha, I like the effect of wearing both. It goes around your torso, cups the outline of your breasts, and the other piece goes around your neck and under your breasts. Easy to figure out. And fun to style with all kinds of things, like the Martini Mermaid dress I chose for this look.

The Martini Mermaid dress is a new style that arrived at SexyPlus Clothing for the holiday season. It’s available in black or red, for $129 CDA. Unfortunately it only comes in sizes 12/14 to 18/20, and I’m wearing the 14/16.

It’s tight but that’s how this vintage Jessica Rabbit-esque dress is supposed to fit. Tight like a glove. If you wear this size, I suggest you grab one because it will make you feel like a movie star indeed, cartoon or not.

The off-shoulder sweetheart neckline includes a wired bust to keep its shape, and the back features a sexy low scoop. I’m not wearing a bra so the harness bra helped to provide a bit of support, but to be honest I was all about celebrating the natural sexy jiggle of my bosom.

The extended fishtail design just brings all the drama my introvert personality keeps in a bottle, and significantly creates an hourglass silhouette.

I honestly felt like a sculpture in it. And paired with the harness bra, well, you can see what I’m talking about right?

This is a classic all-season dress, but for my holiday feature and to provide a bit of coverage and evening glam, I paired it with my amazing new stole by FOC Details.

PERFECT.

It’s oversized and soft and luxurious. There are so many ways to wear this piece I know I will get my mileage out of it and ladies, it’s so worth the modest $55 spend.

Add a sassy clutch, some party pumps and you’re all set.

And despite the fact that I’m a Goddess in this outfit, I still freeze like a human, ha!

Special thanks to Lisa of Mustang Sally Two for photographing this look and putting up with my constant complaining about the cold! xox

Happy Holidays to you, my awesome readers. Thank you so much for your support in 2015. I love you and I hope to inspire you in 2016 and beyond.
