Tight-Laced Corsetry

I have had an uncharacteristic love affair with body-con dresses lately, they seem so empowering and easy to wear – easy because accessories and embellishments are not necessary with them

I found a couple of extremely well priced lace dresses (middle) and a deep blue corseted one (bottom left) that also looks promising – but I always keep going back to Herve Leger – It’s unfortunate that Herve Leroux no longer designs for Hervé Léger, he hasn’t for over a decade and if you’ve ever seen a dress from one of his 1990’s collections you will notice a drastic difference in quality from the Hervé Léger dresses of today designed by Max Azria. Nevertheless, I still like some of the recent designs of the fashion house – I like that they mantain the same sensuality and simplicity. One of my favorite ones is the white reptilian dress on the bottom left, it reminds me of a super hero, one that just stands there and looks pretty and doesn’t have to run :)
