Luxe Vs. Less-Harness Chic

In-keeping with the current mode of "recessionista chic", I'll be posting items from a new installment: luxe vs. less. While I'd personally love to spend top-dollar on all of the most beautiful pieces in the finest materials sometimes that is just not possible. Other times it is completely possible to get a very similar piece of wonderful quality for a fraction of the cost. We'll let you be the judge. Happy bargin-hunting!


Skingraft's leather "flight harness", $200

Audra Jean's leather "Lucille Brown" underbust harness, $69.00

Even less:
Clockwork Couture's "Steampunk Harness" in faux letter, $24.95

DIY Central: Rodarte Inspired Shoes Update

Hi all,

Remember that fun tutorial I posted last year to create a custom pair of Rodarte heels?

Well, it looks like someone has envisioned a high-tech update with even more beautiful details.

Check it out at the lovely Chic Steals blog.

In other news, the lovely Lara is in the process of knitting me some of those crazy tights to match. I smell a new project!
