Black Vintage Lace

Last month I was hanging out at one of my favourite places with some of my favourite people- Tock Tick Vintage with Lavonny and Elizabeth J Photography!

We had just finished up shooting for The Ultimate Pinup Experience with a lovely lady from Wellington and I was trying on this gorgeous original 1950s Overwire Bra that Lavonny has. It sparked a impromptu shoot since ya’know, Elizabeth was there and all!

I wasn’t exactly prepared, but luckily Lavonny has everything there at the studio! We paired a black garter belt, underwear, shoes and floaty lace robe with nude stockings. I whipped my hair up into a quick updo to make me feel a bit more photo ready and off we went.

Overwire bras became popular in the 1950s and Dita Von Teese’s lingerie collection features a few. This original vintage overwire bustier is in fabulous condition and a little big for me but it fitted well enough for a shoot. It’s not for sale, Lavonny is holding on to this one (and I don’t blame her) but I hope to one day find one in the right size for me.

Thank you as always to Elizabeth J Photography for the beautiful photos and of course to Lavonny for providing the wardrobe and wonderful studio!
