Bustles and Ruffles to Boost my Bum
So I was watching The Rachel Zoe Project and her enamorment with a certain bustled coat has got me reminiscing of my love affair with all things Neo-Victorian during the summer I was 16 y/o. My lovely friend Sadie immediately shouted Deadwood! A quick Google search put me face-to-face with this lovely and ultra-wearable grey ASOS trench (although it's not available, there are some amazing bustled frocks). Added bonus of the bustle? The extra umph in the derriere (which I definitely need some help with). Check out the side-view on this slightly more dramatic plaid y'all. Me-ow!
For the not so flat-bottomed girls out there, the bustles best bonus still applies; the effortless fierce you stun your admirers with as you walk away. Here's the lovely Maegan exemplifying my point (not quite a bustle, but definitely a great outfit whether you're walking towards, next to, or away from her). I have a self-professed problem with dressing from all angles, and the bustle is my heaven sent! Needless to say a jacket with an amazing back detail is surely at the top of my to-buy list!
