lacey love

matt won the 'best husband in the universe' award yesterday when he gave me this gorgeous harness. this beauty is handmade by the ever-so-lovely merl of clydes rebirth. you should go to her etsy and check out some of her other pieces. but beware, you will want every single one you see. and here is the link to see a better close-up of the lacey love as i could not get one that was satisfactory with my remote and tripod in 50 degree weather wearing a sleeveless dress. but i wanted to first show you the harness with something a bit more worthy of such a phenomenal piece of jewelry than my normal stuff.
each piece is lovingly wrapped in a vintage scarf and this is the one i got. i love it!!! it's beautiful and i can't wait to wear it with something too.
at first i put this on over my american apparel gray tee and by golly it looked awesome with that too. you'll probably be seeing it that way a lot. this is just how i'd wear it if i were to go out on a date with the 'best husband in the universe' award recipient.
i instantly felt fabulously sexy and glamorous. i love it when that happens. when i get something new that makes me feel amazing. so thanks, merl, for being a bloody genius and picking out such a beautiful scarf to wrap it in. and, matt, thank you for everything that you are.

Love it. Love how you styled it. You look amazing. Though I do have a birthday coming up...

Oh,and as for you fitting all my social etiquette hates? So do I! It's funny, I think what annoys us most in others is often what we are worst at ourselves!

I'm tearing up over here, I'm such a proud mama duck.. you look BEAUTIFUL and are rocking that harness like none other! I'm so so so happy Matt was a good hubby and bought it for you. I'm stoked you like the scarf too.. I asked him for a color preference for you and he said he'd defer to my judgment so I'm glad I was on the money. xxxxo

The pictures are so romantic and the back is such a beautiful body part, especially yours :) Great gift!!! I love how it looks with the black dress.
