… If by “in town” you mean “on my body.”
I got this denim peasant-y lace up corset almost a year ago, and have been tiptoeing around wearing it ever since. It’s kind of a difficult piece to style. But lately I’ve been layering my skirts more, and I think that works really well with the vest. The layering reminds me of the petticoats, bustles and bunching of typical peasantry dresses. And I’m excited about it! And I’ve informed my friends they’re not allowed to tease me for thinking Renaissance garb is awesome.

I’ve been trying to get over my too-poor-to-feel-pretty rut, and outfits like this help. I’m remembering that wearing quirky vintage helps me feel fun and interesting; though it is probably shallow that feeling can make my entire day.
