Where to buy Corset Dresses:

Corset dresses are highly specialized garments, which can be used for foundation under other dresses for weddings, or for clubbing / other fun events. They can act like combination shapewear, supporting the bustline and allowing the use of strapless dresses overtop (rather than using a strapless bra), cinching in the waist (instead of using a cincher), and smoothing over the hips (in lieu of a girdle).

Ever wondered how we determine who dies?  Here’s your answer.

My dad asked me about this the other day.
I’m a civilian.  ”Uh, they just die?”

Right, so I just need to vent.

I have anxiety problems and I have very high standards for myself.  Tomorrow I’m going to a two-day CW reenactment.  I haven’t finished the bodice of my dress (the first mockup failed and I lost motivation) so I’ll be in a borrowed dress that doesn’t flatter me at all.  I’ll be staying the night with the president of our little civilian group.  She’s a lovely woman and I have a great deal of respect for her and I like her, but my anxiety is twisting all the nice things into judge-y things.  So now I’m kinda dreading this event.

Here’s my pledge to myself: I will ignore the bad and just focus on being there for the fun of it.  No one is judging me.  If they are, they are asses.  Everyone starts somewhere.  

Wish me luck.
