HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Today's outfit is actually from this year's New Year! I have probably mentioned this before, but my posts are not necessarily contemporaneous, I often have stuff sitting around on my computer for up to a year before I post it. I had a decent holiday season this year, my days off from work happened to align with the holidays so I went to visit my family AND got to go out on New Year's Eve!
For my outfit this year, I decided to go for head to toe PVC. Please note that my corset is not fully done up in the photos; it is a heavy-duty steel-boned corset that is made to my measurements and I can REALLY cinch my waist with it. When I go out wearing one, I usually lace it up tight but not as far as it will go so I can actually sit down in the car/taxi on my way out. Then, when I get to my destination and it has "warmed up" a bit, I will cinch it ALL THE WAY. I had a long mermaid skirt with a train from Artifice Clothing in my closet that hadn't made it out yet; the train makes it a bit difficult to wear in a crowded club. I just held onto it with my clutch hand the whole night; I think I will sew a small hook on my sleeve and an eye on the train of the skirt so I don't have to hold on to it next time. I used another skirt from Artifice Clothing as a sort of bustle over the long skirt; I am glad I found another use for it as I wore it once when I bought it and it was WAY too short for me.

My New Year's resolution this year is to develop a Positive Mental Attitude (PMA).
I may have posted this on here before but I'm going to post it again:
The sooner I wrap my mind around the positive attitude thing, the better!
Did you make any resolutions this year?
