This Raspberry Fields gartered bustier was provided to me free of charge from EdenFantasys in exchange for an honest review.

Packaging
This bustier comes in a simple plastic packaging. Two tags are attached. The first is a standard tag showing a model wearing it. The other mentions that a proceed of Coquette’s Spring/Summer collection will be going towards The Save the Ta-Tas Foundation to fund breast cancer research.

Sizing
This bustier comes in sizes small, medium, large, xl and 1X/2X. I usually wear a size large in Coquette clothing so I chose a large in this. According to the Coquette size chart a large should fit someone who wears a size 12-14 with a C bust that is 38-40″, a 28-32″ waist and 38-42″ hips.

This bustier closes up the back with 17 eye hooks. It also offers four different closures width wise, like a bra may. The actual unstretched measurements of this bustier closed on the tights hooks is 28″ bust, 26″ underbust, 26″ waist and 29″ hips. On the widest hooks the unstretched measurements are 29″ bust, 28″ underbust, 28″ waist and 32″ hips. There are also non-detachable garters on the front of the bustier which are about 9″ long.

I wear a size large or 10-12 in women’s clothing with a size 36C bust. I had to wear it on the widest closure for it to fit comfortably. I’m not used to doing hooks up the back of a bustier. I’ve only had pull on, lace up or zip up ones in the past. To put it on I had to hook it all of the way up and pull it over my head. As with the Wetlook halter top dress, I found the cups of this bustier to be a bit large. However I would not size down on it because it definitely would not fit me in the waist if I did so.

Material Care & Information
This chemise is made of 90% nylon and 10% spandex. It is supposed to be hand washed and hung to dry.

Experience
Upon receiving this bustier I was surprised at how well made it appears to be. This bustier features padded cups, plastic boning, detailed stitching and beautiful lace. It’s not exactly perfect for my body though. It is designed to pull you in at the waist, which is nice. However I don’t have much of a waist so after wearing it for a while it caused my hips to jut out a bit unappealingly.

I wore it out while running errands with the matching panties. You can see how it looks above with just the panties, a pair of jeans over it or with jeans and a shrug sweater.

I also wear a C cup and would say that the cups on this would work better for a D. I didn’t feel like I was completely filling them out, even when after adjusting the tie at the neck. That’s another issue. I wish that this closed with something a bit sturdier. The string that you tie at your neck to keep this up seems to be a bit flimsy in comparison to the rest of the piece.

All in all I find this bustier to be beautiful but not perfect for my body type. I think that it would look great on someone who is a cup size larger than me with a smaller waist.

Deciding on the Purchase
Last summer the Darque Desires Fetish Wear by Coquette line was released. It is full of super sexy wetlook pieces. Since then I’ve bought quite a few pieces. I originally only bought separates though. I was worried that trying to buy one of the dresses would end in disaster since it can be difficult to find a dress that fits correctly on both the top and bottom of my body. I kept coming back to the Wetlook halter top dress though. It just screams sexy.

After watching Men In Black 3 for the third time late last year I just knew that I had to get this dress. It totally reminds me of the dress that Nicole Sherzinger wears in the opening of the filming (as seen below). Technically her dress may be a bit more reminiscent of the Wetlook dress with molded cups but that one just looks too long for my 5’4″ frame.

Packaging

This awesome dress comes on a plastic hanger from Coquette with a clothing tag (featuring a model in the dress and care instructions) attached that is covered in plastic.

Sizing
This dress comes in sizes small, medium, large and extra large. I usually go with a size large when purchasing a Coquette piece. However after reading the past reviews on this dress about the cups running large I decided to go with a medium. SMichelle’s review was especially helpful.

I wear a size large or 10-12 in women’s clothing with a size 36C bust. That is why I would usually buy a large from Coquette. However I did size down and was super happy that I had done so. This dress in a medium seems to fit more like the Coquette sizing for a Medium/Large, which should fit a size 10-12 with a C cup, 36-40″ bust, 28-32″ waist and 38-40″ hips. Be advised that when you get this you will think, “oh no, this is too small!”. That’s how I felt when I saw it on the hanger. The original, unstretched measurements on the dress prior to my wearing it were 30″ bust, 26″ waist and 28″ hips. It stretches a lot though.

Material & Care Information
This dress is 80% nylon and 20% spandex. The inner tag says that it is to be handwashed only and hung to dry.

Ignore my “model” pose. I was a bit tipsy.


Experience
I ordered this in late December. When it showed up the weekend before New Year’s Eve I just knew that I had to wear it out for that holiday. I hadn’t originally planned to go out for NYE 2012/2013 but I was having a bad couple of weeks prior and it definitely seemed preferable to staying at home being annoyed.

when I tried it on the first day I found it easy to wiggle into. However the night that I was to wear it out I did need a little help getting it on because I was annoyed and drinking which led to being sweating (I know, ew!). Once on the dress stretched to fit wonderfully and accentuate my figure. This dress just pulls on. It doesn’t have any zippers or anything that you need to bother with when putting it on. The halter style neck ties at the back of the neck. I’m not crazy about this because the tie is very thin in the back so I think that it may eventually wear thin. Even with going down a size the bust still doesn’t scream “look at me I have cleavage”, unless I bend around different ways.

I found this dress to be just as comfortable to wear as my other pieces from Coquette’s wetlook line. I was easily able to dance all night long in this dress without becoming uncomfortable.

I haven’t worn this dress since New Year’s Eve just because it’s so flashy. So it is a bit difficult for me to find an occasion to wear it on. However I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel sexy and sassy for the night.

When I finished the current issue of Maxim I noticed an intriguing ad on the back cover, the sexy ass Chris Evans posing for Gucci Guilty Black. I’ve been a huge fan of Evans’ since Not Another Teen Movie. I’m so psyched that he has been able to rise to stardom via films like The Avengers.

Luckily the ad lists the official Gucci YouTube channel on the side so I was able to go watch the below commercials starring Chris Evans and Evan Rachel Wood. These are awesome and it’s no wonder, they were directed by Frank Miller (Sin City). The song is by Friendly Fires and Bat For Lashes and is entitled Strangelove Guilty remix.

The official site lists that this fragrance, Gucci Guilty, smells like lemon, mandarin, green leaves, pink pepper, patchouli, cedar, sandalwood and amber.

blk dress side

Early this year I went through a bad breakup. As many do I needed to make a big change at that time. In February I had missemmamm.com contributor and senior stylist/teacher, Hot Donna, give me a vibrant new red do. It didn’t last long because I always go back to blonde but I did feel super sexy in it.

Since the night life sucks where I live and yeah I needed some support from my little sister I went to Baltimore to visit her. I wore this outfit out to the new hot club Voltage on a snowy night. It’s run by a manager of the now defunct but once awesome Hammerjacks.

I combined this braless dress from EdenFantasys with an old handcuff necklace, a metallic bracelet, my once favorite but now torn to shreds tights and some super cute booties that I had just gotten. I remarked that pairing the dress with the necklace let people know “what I’m about”. My sister interrupted with “shows people that you lack mystery”, which I found pretty amusing.

We caught up with some old friends that night and had a ton of fun.

Seven Psychopaths Poster

Seven Psychopaths is a comedic crime thriller written and directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). The cast includes Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits. To even lightly explain the plot is to rob you of the experience of the film. The simplest way to give you an idea of the chaos that ensues is to say that it involves a writer, psychopaths, dognapping and murder.

Christopher Walken in Seven Psychopaths

Earlier this year I was finally able to watch the film. I didn’t really know what to expect going in, aside from a stellar cast. I thoroughly enjoyed it but was at a loss to write a review. I merely tweeted the below.

Luckily contributor Hot Donna caught the movie this week. She has decided to share her thoughts on it with us below.

Colin Farrell,  Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken in Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths is Excellente! It makes me want to rewatch Matchstick Men and Choke. I love Sam Rockwell. He’s both hilarious and nuts. It’s the perfect black comedy with action and a fitting ending. Seven Psychopaths is the best movie I’ve seen in years. I laughed and was frightened at the same time.
