lescarpolette's breastshaped corset and shrug, worn  
I didn't close much the corset because it still needs training and I didn't want to faint in the middle of the way ;P


I cropped details of the pictures so you can see the corset better:









You can see the whole outfit here and here.

Oh, that red nailpolish is my favorite ever, now I only use this one, it is 228 Clarins, one layer is bright red, two layers very deep red :) it didn't really show very well in these pics, I hope they never discontinue it!
And I am a red lipstick addict too ;) My favorite is Viva Glam I from MAC, perfect deep red, and what I am wearing in the pics is also MAC, Diva, that is more dark.

And thank you :)

Lovely. Did she make the rest of the outfit?
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 06:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks!
She made the corset and the shrug. I also have a skirt in mind, more pencil skirt, with the same fabric than the corset, that will be a bit more 30's, but it's gonna have to wait because I don't have my sewing machine here with me.
That other skirt is just a random skirt I grabbed :)

It's so nice to see the corset on a real person!
Can't wait for my corsets to arrive,she is truly great!
Lovely outfit and model :)
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 06:23 pm (UTC)
Yes it is! you will be thrilled :)
Thank you!
Minniearoussa on December 14th, 2005 06:22 pm (UTC)
pretty :)

The entire outfit is just gorgeous. I especially love the burgundy of the skirt and top mixed with the dusty rose of the corset. The corset looks beautifully made, I really like the ribbon detail. I'm assuming you made the skirt and top as well? I also think the small gather in the back of the skirt is a great detail too ^-^ Good job *thumbs up*!
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 06:51 pm (UTC)
The corset is more a grayish taupe, but it changes a lot depending on the light, so I guess that at some point it could be called dusty rose :)
I actually don't know to what are you referring when you say ribbon detail though, the laces?
The skirt is a random skirt, there will be a skirt matching the corset as soon as I have my sewing machine back, and the shrugh is also a creation of lescarpolette
Thank you!
Maggie M-Mmaggishness on December 14th, 2005 08:21 pm (UTC)
That is STUNNING!
I saw the pics of the corset earlier on her webpage, and in those it looks more cream coloured. I like the 'real' colour better.
I bought an adwardian in her recent ebay auction, if it turns out half as well as yours I shall be a very happy person :)
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 08:24 pm (UTC)
Which edwardian style are you choosing?
I have this overbust breastshaped and an underbust edwardian stays, and I have to say that they are fabulous!
You will for sure have a splendid corset :)

Welcome to Tardvilleseannemarie on December 14th, 2005 08:26 pm (UTC)
I'm literally sitting here saying "wow, that's beautiful ... wow" out loud. Absolutely stunning.
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 08:28 pm (UTC)
Oh, I am glad you like it :D
Grima Wormtongue, the creepy counsellorgrimacounsellor on December 14th, 2005 09:13 pm (UTC)
I just have to say my favorate part is that cute little corset cover you have going there. thats hott.
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 09:20 pm (UTC)
Thank you :)

Oh wow! I love the flossing details, esp in the contrasting red and the shrug is so cute!
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 09:21 pm (UTC)
The flossing is AMAZING, a piece of art :)
nomighost on December 14th, 2005 09:29 pm (UTC)
Beautiful work! The fit is wonderful. With overbusts there is nothing worse than when it's too tight at the top! The triangular gussets are sewn beautifully. They can be such a pain sometimes! Fabulous job lady.
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 09:42 pm (UTC)
Yes, she did an amazing job :)
When it is closed completely it fits perfectly, but I am not used yet and I had to walk the way to the park and back, so I didn't tighten much.
sweetnesssweetnessss on December 14th, 2005 10:34 pm (UTC)
Very beautiful!!!!!
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 10:38 pm (UTC)
It is, thank you :)
I/M: moonrooflurknessmonster on December 14th, 2005 11:19 pm (UTC)
very elegant looking! :)

Thank you!

Dammit I need more corset making practice.... That outfit is utterly fantastic and you look stunning. BTW I am also a big fan of red lipstick and nail varnish. A little vamp nevesr did any harm did it?

You must be very happy with those pictures. Where were they taken? It looks lovely.
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 11:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much :)
Yes I am, we got them taken at a botanical park nearby, a very nice place but a bit dead now in winter!
DecoDolldeco_doll on December 14th, 2005 11:25 pm (UTC)
Absolutely gorgeous! I love the little jacket too. You look beautiful in it. :) The sleeves of the shrug look very 30's to me. I'm sure it'll look great with the skirt you have planned. My wedding corset had a little matching bolero too. I love that look.

p.s. great colour lipstick, as well...I need to get more...maybe I'll switch from Russian Red to Diva...
Mermedvssa on December 14th, 2005 11:45 pm (UTC)
I also love boleros. And yes 30's is what I wanted the sleeves to look like :)

Diva is very nice, Russian Red too, also one of my favorites, both very classical reds, but as I said before, Viva Glam I is my absolute favorite, check the color out, it's just perfect:


those lips have a bit of Russian Red in the middle too to give more volume :)

Everything in the photo is so beautiful!
I second the compliments on the nails and the lipstick, so gorgeous. I wish I could pull off those colors myself!
And (as I said over at lescarpolette, you look like you just walked into a painting.

Beautiful.
Mermedvssa on December 15th, 2005 12:06 am (UTC)
Wow, thank you very much for all your compliments :)
And I am sure you can pull off reds, you just have to feel determined ;)
Laralaracorsets on December 15th, 2005 12:34 am (UTC)
That is so so beautiful. I want one of her corsets too!
Mermedvssa on December 15th, 2005 12:36 am (UTC)
Wow she must feel so flattered :)
electradesignselectradesigns on December 15th, 2005 01:41 am (UTC)
