Pass Me the Bustier
For some reason, the song “Pass the Courvoisier” has been in my head all damn day. (If you have for some reason never heard this jewel of the rap canon, see it here.)
And so, in my head, I started singing “Pass me the Bustier.” And seriously, this is one of my biggest wishes for the new year. Romantic and often velvet-y, the bustier (or corset, if you prefer) has been a staple throughout fashion history. Pirates? Yep, bustiers. Victorian era? Yes. Cabaret? Of course there were a (couple) bustiers. Madonna added cones to hers. And now, fashion icons like Nicki Minaj can be seen sporting a sexy bustier.
Here is a beautiful inspiration board with a few fancy dresses, a few stars, and a few casual bustiers (if that is even possible!) to add into your every wardrobe.
