My corset arrived last week, and I have a non-uniform day on Friday, so guess what I’m wearing? Brown brocade with brass fastenings, a white blouse, this kind of cyberpunk skirt if I can get to TK Maxx on time. And a clock on a chain. And (if I can muster up the courage to walk through town with one first thing on a Friday morning) a black lace parasol! I am, very excited. And I might even do my hair in a faux Victorian/Edwardian up-do. So yay for corsets and brown leather and brass and for fathers who think it’s good taste to make snarky remarks about whips (seriously Dad? Are you going out of your way to horrify me?)
