Bridle it up

In her post, Giddup There, Susie Bubble mentioned Fleet Ilya’s harnesses (Sorry Susie, didn't mean to post-bite), and the images jogged my brain as I tried to remember where I'd seen the harness/floaty combination fabric before. I managed to stumble upon this old McQueen collection when looking through the archives at style.com (I always turn to old McQueen collections when inspiration is lacking, but his newer stuff is leaving me rather cold...). There are harnesses over every item imaginable. A harness adds instant cool to what would have otherwise been a set of very dull beige ensembles. Unfortunately this isn't the easiest accessory to come by. I wonder if a palatable version could be found in kink shops hmm... I quite like the brown leather and I wouldn't want to do patent.

I don't know how I feel about harnesses. It would have to be a really super floaty dress, I think.

Hello, I really adore McQueen 2003-2005 collections. They were somehow really... sensual? I remember Jenne O did some similar stuffs for Coco de Mer. She is the person behine Alexander McQueen shoes. However, they are not priced cheap. Have to say, your blog is brilliant x

I remember Sienna Miller wearing tons of those around last year or 2006. I don't quite like it though, I think it looks fine on other people but I don't think I could pull it off
