All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Stripes and Plaid, yep really.1. Gray and Black Stripe Couture Dress - Ivizia
2. HARLEQUIN Victorian Shoulder Wrap Shrug - Countessa
3. Blue Plaid Waist Cincher Underbust Corset - Shrinkle
4. Tartan Corset Layered Skirt - gloomth
I'm partial to plain black, it allows me to blend into the background. For a kick of drama that grabs attention, why not add some color in an unexpected way. Plaid and stripes in just the right concentration create so much character. If you can pull of the color, these pieces are certain to get you noticed. If you want to start a little safer, I submit gray and black stripes as a good first step.

I admit, I am very wary of plaids & stripes. But I love that waist cincher.

I've never seen a plaid corset before, but I love it!
