Corsets are a great way to spice up any wardrobe. They can be worn as tops with jeans, under business suits for a feminine touch or as lingerie. Some are more ornate than others. Some have straps while others do not. This one is made from a nice satin fabric and features a cool British flag print on the front and dainty lace trim along the bustline and bottom hem. The back of the corset is a solid color and laces up to ensure a comfortable fit. We think this would look super with a pair of jeans and maybe some boots. Use it as a base to create a look that's all your own!

"This strawberry jam is one of the best things you’ll ever taste. No lie. You will never, ever want to eat jam from the store again. Not only is it way better for you, because it’s fresh and doesn’t have horrible things in it like high-fructose corn syrup and weird artificial dyes, it also makes a fantastic, super-cheap, seriously impressive gift. Why? Because people love jam and, for some reason, everyone thinks making it is really hard.:))"
