Corset style wet look pencil skirt

Lace Up Pencil Skirt from Coax Copenhagen

This stunning, corset-style Lace Up pencil skirt from Coax will really pull your strings!

With the Christmas festivities almost upon us and my annual gift shopping and festive preparations complete, I thought it only fair that I reward my efforts with a little Christmas treat. I had recently spotted a racy looking lace up pencil skirt by a company called Coax and having previously had a quick glance through their website, had made a mental note to browse further when I had a little more time.

Having browsed their full range of gorgeous products, I found myself clicking back to the same piece, a beautiful corset-style, lace up pencil skirt in faux leather with it’s edgy looking, lace up corset feature to the back.

I finally submitted to the devil on my shoulder and ordered a size M in the hope that it would fit my UK size 10 stats and look at least almost as good as the product image that inspired my purchase. Having parted with €115 for the privilege, I tried to deny my child-like impatience although secretly, I understood the agony of every small child waiting for Christmas morning!

I didn’t have long to suffer; my lace up pencil skirt purchase arrived six days later, despite the busy Christmas period, and was beautifully presented in a quality matte black box with matching black tissue paper inside.

Unwrapping my gift-to-self revealed a gorgeous, soft and slightly stretchy faux leather material, which felt gorgeous to touch and looked even better than I had hoped. I knew immediately, that the purchase price was entirely justified and I had made a smart investment.

Slipping the skirt over my hips confirmed exactly what the website described; it was indeed, painted on!

Slipping this fabulous lace up pencil skirt over my hips confirmed exactly what the website described; it was indeed, painted on! although in a very flattering way. The fabric clings in all the right places, smoothing out the curves, and streamlining the figure. The skirt is high waisted and extends slightly below the knee. I stand 5’7″ tall so when coupled with 4″ heels and pair of carefully selected tights or stockings, the overall look cuts an imposing figure, especially from the back.

Along with the zip and the stretchable fabric, the skirt is easy to slip into with the need to expand the corset strings at the back which makes it a practical piece of clothing although it’s probably not something you would choose for everyday wear.

There’s no denying, this garment makes you feel truly irresistible!

My most recent outing saw this beautiful piece paired with a black string top, pinstriped stockings, black patent heels and a cropped, suede jacket, all subtly accessorised with a simple black choker. There’s no denying, this garment makes you feel truly irresistible!

I can absolutely recommend a little self-indulgent shopping spree from Coax. The shipping is fast and efficient, the packaging is exquisite, the choice and style of their collection has something for everyone and the products are exactly as described. I can safely say your purchase from Coax certainly won’t disappoint.

So much so that I’ve already begun compiling my next wish list!

Gothic Corset

I’m an avid fan of corsets, as you can probably tell if you follow my Instagram or have read my blog before. They are so feminine but still sexy and when I’m wearing one I feel irrestible, well shaped and not so conscious of my body, instead a little more confident of my curves and enhanced bust.

I even love corset inspired clothing and accessories I’ve seen, like fingerless gloves, jackets, skirts and even laced up leather trousers (amazing by the way and I found a gorgeous pair from Kate’s Clothing – but that’s for another day!)

I have a few favourite corsets of course but I love any excuse to wear a dark, figure-hugging, laced up corset on a night out. I have a few here, from the plain leather to gothic styles to suit all mysterious ladies’ style. I love how they can be worn with simple black jeans and a leather jacket, a pleated mini skirt or even just a pair of fabulous fishnets and to-die-for heels! These ones I have chosen to share with you are a small selection of what’s available out there but I just adore the style and material of them, plus the prices are so reasonable I couldn’t give up an opportunity to share with you!

so firstly I would highly recommend, the divinely sexy, Violet Vixen website. You’ll find everything gothic, burlesque, steampunk and sassy you need right here. They specialise in corsets and get it just right every time. I love their Gothic, Leather and Overbust ranges. There you’ll find the Aggressive Assassin Black corset, which I have featured below. It’s amazingly designed to enhance the streamlined look of your torso with the metal grommets down the front of the basque, a centred belt, chains hung either side of your belly button and laced up the side, to accent your perfectly shaped curves. It also has two spiral steel bones over the bust for that extra lift! To add to the good news, Violet Vixen also add a free pair of stockings to any corset order so that might entice you a little more (as if you needed more encouragement!)

also in Violet Vixen you’ll find the Black Embrace Vegan Leather Overbust corset for the most elegant, subtle but sultry of ladies. the Caged Heart Crusher corset is available in red, blue, silver, purple and black and is by far my ultimate favourite. I would recommend this one for the girls who want to make a statement! the choker piece is simply gorgeous on its own and very much on trend right now too.

lastly from Violet Vixen theres a gold enfused, leather wrapped Magic Black Corset which has to be seen to be believed! i love this one because its a happy medium- meaning it can be perfectly suited to ripped black jeans or a skirt easily and whatever the weather. its zipped up front and laced back ensures a perfect fit while the detailed metal clasped front shows you to be a seductive female while still a fearless warrior. this one is not to be messed with!

So that about wraps up my night out corsets, hope you enjoyed this one and if so, I have another Night time corset post coming very soon, stay tuned!

‘Lovely in Lace’ Satin & Lace Corset

It’s true to say that most, if not all women love to buy and wear really good quality, sexy lingerie. Theres nothing quite like that feeling you get when slipping into your sexiest ensemble of bows and lace, the way it makes you feel inside and the mischievous glow you radiate when you know you’re wearing something cheeky underneath. For a lot of women though, the cost of purchasing a sexy lace corset or really great quality lingerie means its an indulgence we have to do without most of the time, save for special occasions or when you feel like splashing out. Having said that, in my quest to feel like an inner goddess, I occasionally uncover some little online gems where you can easily find that exquisite corset or luxurious lingerie set you’ve been denying yourself for too long – feeling like a goddess underneath doesn’t have to break the bank after all.

When it comes to spending hours online perusing online shops and lingerie websites I have to confess – I am guilty as charged. Even a quick glance at the endless pages of sexy lingerie and the myriad of options for colours, styles and fabrics sets my pulse racing and usually ends in a shopping cart full of items even when I had no intentions of shopping for yet more lingerie. And so ensues, the almost painful process of removing the items I will have to learn to love and leave, only to return another day to repeat the same process when my credit card has sufficiently recovered!

It was a great relief to recently discover a huge range of everything sexy, feminine and down-right ‘feel good’ underwear from, where all of their lingerie is reasonably priced, of fantastic quality and most importantly, far better suited to my budget. stocks everything from bras to stockings, thongs, g-strings, masquerade masks, clubwear, wigs and everything in between. All of which are available in every size, colour and material you could wish for, so there’s no excuse for not putting together an outfit that will make you look and feel as glamorous and sexy as you dare!

The prices on are very reasonable and seriously good value in my experience, judging by my purchases so far, the most recent being the ‘Lovely in Lace Corset’ from the extensive range of corsets currently available.

For some time I had been on the look out for a black corset to wear under a figure hugging, formal day dress over a pair of black hold up stockings. It wasn’t difficult to find more than a few corsets on various websites that interested me and suited the outfit I was planning on wearing it with but I was unconvinced, and hesitant to take a chance on ordering since the prices were quite expensive in most cases and to my mind, not worth taking the chance on given that I couldn’t try them on first.
Being a size 8 and of otherwise modest proportions, well tailored corsets that fit comfortably and enhance my figure rather than draw attention to the bits I am trying to hide can be very difficult to find. And so, I was relieved to find the ‘Lovely in Lace’ corset for only $56.95 on and carefully reviewed the images, descriptions and customer comments in the hope that my search was over.

I ordered, and Yandy delivered!-in every respect. My gorgeous, lace and satin corset arrived in a gift bag delicately lined with soft tissue paper, folded neatly as to not bend the bones and with the added bonus of a free gift enclosed, in my case a cute, black lace thong with a cute bow detail to the front. I was so apprehensive putting it on as I have so often been disappointed but was delighed to find, on wearing it for the first time, it didn’t ‘gape’ around the bust, the ribs and clasps didn’t pinch or poke me when I moved and the overall fit was one I could comfortably wear all night. The ‘Lovely in Lace’ corset is a black, wire boned, beautiful satin and lace corset with adjustable and removable straps. It perfectly hugs my figure so elegantly extends just below my hips, with an adjustable garter belt attached. It’s fastened with eye and hook clasps all the way up the front and is laced up the back which makes the whole corset easily adjustable to any body size or shape.

This particular lace corset comes in sizes small, medium, large, XL and plus, so you are sure to find a size the fits your figure perfectly, particularly given the amount of adjustments you can make once the garment is on. I ordered size small and couldn’t be happier with the overall fitting once I had spent a bit of time adjusting everything to my particular body shape. It would even be suitable for a size 10 figure because of the laced up back. It makes my figure look and feel more streamlined and toned, elongating my torso and almost sculpting my hips to a perfect curve. The satin part from the rib cage down makes your stomach appear flawlessly flat. It took a bit of effort and experimanting with adjustments to acheive the perfect form but I have worn it on numerous ocassions now under a lot of different outfits, from formal evening wear to more casual, every-day outfits and I can’t express how amazing and irresistible I feel every time! Perfect for a night out, no matter what the ocassion, and, I find, even better for a night in 😉
