I understand layering, I live in Minnesota and we do layering all winter long. I don't however, understand why you would want to wear a layered look that has undergarments on the OUTSIDE. Maybe it's me, but I'd prefer to wear a corset under the top, not over, as it is in this look. This is by Shape FX, available through Newport-News for $64.00

What do you think?

Bavaria. (It came to me in a flash.) That's where I've seen the corset-over-blouse done more elegantly; in the window of a shop that sold custom-tailored linen or wool dirndls and those men's loden-cloth hunting sportcoats. Oktoberfest beermaid outfits are a poor caricature of how elegant Alpine clothing can be.

I love the top but not the slacks.

I like the jacket, I'm not sure about the pants/ skirt??? that it's paired with. It isn't in my budget, or lifestyle, either!

I wouldn't wear that one, but I've seen a better representation of the over-corset style elsewhere.
