3 Alternatives to Corsets for under $150 (that will make you stand out in a group of wasp waisted beauties)
How’s it going sugar muffin!
Do you love the look of a corset but you aren’t really feeling the boning or the price tag? I totally get that and I’m here to help. I’m always looking for alternatives to corsets that maintain my steampunk style while allowing me to move and breathe with ease.
Velvet, tapestry, high collar and lace up front, mmm. Think sexed up, less bitchy version of the Queen of Hearts. You could run a marathon in this sassy little top while maintaining all your fabulousness. Try doing that in a corset.
All the renaissance jackets are one of a kind, just like you you beautiful snowflake. They look fantastic over a pair of black skinny pants or leggings with knee high boots. You’re basically a gender bending Casanova who will make any dude or dudette swoon in your sexy presence.
So there you have it, three inexpensive alternatives to corsets that will make heads turn when you walk by.
Check out how awesome I look in my renaissance jacket below:

The New York Times has declared that the monocle is back in the recent article ‘One Part Mr. Peanut, One Part Hipster Chic’ by Allen Salkin.
While I appreciate that the New York Times is an esteemed publication and historically held up as the holy grail for freelance writers, I still have to express the following: Duh and/or hello.
Monocles are badass and as far as I’m concerned they never went out of style to begin with. No, monocles are more like the unicorn of eye wear. You may
go you’re entire life without seeing one, but for the pure of heart who are graced with it’s presence it is truly a magical experience.
The dapperness of a monocle is beyond compare. It’s like a classy eye patch that you can see through. I for one would be ecstatic if they became a
fashion trend and were readily available in every mall in an assortment of styles and colours.
But alas, that day is not today. Do not despair, Venus & Mars has a solution for you.
We carry MONOCLES and MONOGOGGLES (for when you need to be classy
and a cyborg). You too can join the ever growing micro-trend before it explodes into the mainstream.
Below is a video that explains how to wear one of these uniquely awesome accessories.
