Imagine how upset I was to click on What’s New at net-a-porter only to find that I’d missed out on another impressive statement piece. Those of you who rely on me for shopping tips, please try to understand. I’m so busy doing nothing all day that it’s all too easy to shirk my duties.
Anyway, this fancy bustier by Dolce & Gabbana sold out at $13,760. I’m guessing there was only one.
It looks very nice with a simple black pencil skirt.
Why can’t we just decorate a bustier from the lingerie department with a couple of pounds of cheap costume jewelry from a thrift shop or the 99 Cent store? Let’s say the bustier is $50.
The white one comes in black, Macy’s for $55. The black one is by Carnival, $38.
Another $50 should be enough for a pile of crappy jewelry and beads from a crafts store. Sew the shit on while you’re watching TV or arguing with your husband. Voila! You have saved enough for a new car, or to send your kid to college for one year (assuming you have scholarship money too.)
Now you are a hero instead of a chump! And when you wear it, your husband should prove to be very amiable and quick to see your point of view. A man who is immune to the power of lingerie is not a man worth having.
