I’m back indoors because I didn’t think I could be spooky in front of an audience.  The belt is an army surplus find that probably isn’t a belt.  Moustache Man and I browsed through one in our neighborhood (apparently it’s been in movies) because I wanted some camo underpants and I came across a stack of these leather contraptions.  I tried it on and voila, a badass belt.  In hindsight, we should have asked the owner what it was, but hindsight is 20/20.  I almost prefer that we don’t know because it adds a mystique and things are better when they’re mystical.

    Belt/corset or not; it looks amazing. Would love to see it worn over something white/nude and flowing.

    Yes, I’m incredibly jealous of your insane styling abilities. This outfit is killer and the belt find even more so! I want me an army surplus store to root around in (that sounds so wrong ;).

    Love how you’ve paired it here.

    And the Rick Owens jacket? Love.

    the sheer hoodie and the boots are kinky enough –
    however that “un”belt is utterly divinely superb –
    brava on having such a mega-cool BF.

    that corset is beyond words! you found it at an army surplus store? amazing. i’ve been meaning to visit one to find the perfect khaki coat, and maybe some boots. authentic army boots are a tough wear though, so heavy!

    love the look, so well styled.

    I absolutely agree ! Alessandra Facchinetti was to me like Olivier Theyskens or Alexander McQueen: someone that made clothes that I loved not only for being well tailored clothes…. they were just dreams, and that’s what I adored !
    With Chiuri & Piccioli it’s really different, it’s more Valentino in the sense that it is mostly about clothes, beautiful clothes. More fashion that art… but it’s great too….
    too bad Alessandra can’t work right now !

    Those little things are called gaiters… they go over boots, kinda like spats. I’ve actually been looking EVERYWHERE for them! Where did you find them?
