Lingerie-as-outerwear series : a vegan leather waspie

I would like to hear your thoughts about harnesses? Do they count as lingerie for you? I mean, they can certainly be shaped to fit around your breasts like wires or around your waist like waspies, but can we actually call them lingerie? I recently received a gorgeous wide belt from Bijoux indiscrets and while I love to pair it with light colored lingerie to play around, my favorite thing is to pair it with little black dresses or jumpsuits.

[The Maze belt has been sent to me as a gift. All thoughts and opinions are my own.]

I actually own several pieces from Bijoux Indiscrets Maze collection , and this belt is definitely one of my favorites. When I first saw it, it immediately reminded me of a waist cincher. You can find it in black but I fell in love with the brown colorway. It feels a bit more “delicate” over the skin, and to be honest I mostly wear black clothing so the black one wouldn’t contrast at all on my usual outfits.
I am currently really into harnesses to achieve lingerie inspired outfits. I love how they can give structure and character to anything.

Except for my breasts I am not a really curvy person and I tend to prefer clothes that accentuate my waist. I love this belt for that reason too. It’s flexible enough to not become annoying or really restrictive but definitely does the trick.
Here, I wear it with a Frank and Oak Tencel jumpsuit (size Small) that I have been wearing quite often this summer and I just love this combination. I always wear this jumpsuit with my Avocado Misia bra because it’s just very discreet and flattering under a V neck. The bra straps are thin enough to almost disappear under the jumpsuit straps and I think it makes the outfit slicker.

By the way, another thing I like about the Maze collection is that it is made from recyclable materials. I am not vegan and although I care a lot about over consumption of animal derived products I have no problem buying real leather. That said, I love to see brands being concerned about the environment. Fast-fashion brands have been creating ersatz of leather that are damaged super easily and need to be replaced after a few wears.
While using leather can be seen as unethical and not eco-friendly, faux-leather is simply not biodegradable and some of them aren’t even recyclable. Nevertheless, some companies work to create great quality, recyclable and ethically made vegan leather so I can support that. The Maze collection seems to be good quality and I definitely want more of those items in my wardrobe.It’s the beginning of Fall already and I have been wanting to post about this outfit for about a month. Better late than never! I don’t think I could ever be an actual fashion blogger because my objective is to have more of a capsule wardrobe full of versatile, ethically made items. Because of that, I don’t see myself buying tones of Forever 21 or Fashion nova pieces in order to serve you looks on a daily basis. I will probably be re-using some pieces in different posts because, I think it’s just more sustainable and eco-friendly. Plus it forces me to be creative and I love this type of challenges. (My wallet loves them even more.)

I hope you enjoyed this post. I know I definitely have to improve my posing game haha! Anyway, here are some other pieces of Montreal that I am happy to share with you!

Until next time!

Yours truly,
Wen
