Corset: Vintage, Skirt: Topshop. T-shirt: Express, Shoes: Aldo, All jewelry: F21

When some people buy new clothes, they save them for a special ocassion. I am not one of these people.I bought this corset yesterday and naturally, when I got home and had to get ready to go to a family dinner event I immmediately put on the corset I bought that day. There was no hesitating on what I would wear.

Yesterday morning I hit up a few antique stores as well as some vintage ones...and I got lucky....real lucky!
I found this amazing corset for $15. FIFETEEN.
It was originally a little higher but I only had $15 in cash on me and with no debit machine...she just accepted what I had. Although the pictures show how cute it is, they don't demonstrate how well constructed it is. There is not one sequin missing...the material is thick but not too heavy and the wires inside are enough to give some shape..but not suffocate.
I know I will be wearing this non-stop.

Doesn't the sequin pattern on it resemble little sea lions or some sort of sea creature?

What a great find! It does look well-made and the detail of the embroidery is amazing. I'm like you... I have to wear something immediately after getting it. And why not? If you spend the money it's better you wear it as often as possible! :)
