Having bought a cream scarf (?!) from Topshop because it liked it and not necessarily because I knew what it was I have been wearing it over a plain white dress (thank you American Apparel for your ever-wonderful basics) as a kind of harness. I am obsessed with this metal bondage looking chain from Norwegian Wood on Etsy.
Worn by stylish Michelle Yue I think that would manage to toughen up even the prettiest dress.
Gorgeous body decoration in the form of garters, shoe chains, shoulder pieces and harnesses, the list goes on. I would do just about anything to be able to own any of the creations here. See them for yourself at
