I Got Tatted! | Awakened Aesthetic

Back in March, I won a gorgeous pair of  In Bloom Ankle Corsets from talented needle tatting artist TotusMel.  Even though I’ve already shown them off around town, I’ve never had a chance to take photos – until today, that is.

Miss ‘Mel strings them up the back of her legs so they hug her ankles and sit just at the top of her arch, which looks gorgeous, especially from the back.  When paired with the pumps I wore today, though, I like to lace them a little lower and let them cover my entire arch:

Totally hot, right?  Please ignore the messy, half-full bookcase: moving is completely tearing apart my house.

Why yes, I do love to wear them casual. Wouldn’t you?

And now, I’m off to look at a potential apartment – one with pillars (pillars!) and hardwood floors.  I hope it’s a good fit.  Wish me luck!

    It’s a little unnerving when you tag something with "feet" and suddenly the hits skyrocket. ("I got tatted!" post: http://bit.ly/2lucyd)
