This look was an inspiration from my idol Lil Kimmy! Now back in the day, Kim would rock up to the Junior Mafia concerts circa the time when All About the Benjamins came out, with a full see through lace bodysuit. Recently she has been touring with Diddy in the Bad Boy tour, and her looks have been modern recreations of her original tour looks! Still to this day she inspires the chicks and it's been a trend in the world of thotalinas to rock the lace mesh jumpsuits, and here we are! Check out the original Instagram version here.
One of the things that I found difficult to find for me, was a lace jumpsuit that didn't castrate me due to the higher than my 6 2 frames torso length. So I found this one on an asian wholesale website that I could manipulate a little and added it over the corset that I had made for me. The belt is a simple gold chain. The hair is something I really wanted to challenge myself to achieve. When I was 3, I knew instinctually how to braid hair and I grew up creating the most elaborate styles on my sister and mum. I have always worn my hair in braids and even when I was a kid emo, I would sew tracks into my fringe. Most of my longer mermaid hair looks were also sewn in, but the idea of braiding into a lace front was something I've never tried before!
I previously made a dread tutorial back in the day, if anyone remembers it you can kinda see the reference point. I took the idea of an old look, and modified it ala Kim! I used the same burgundy colour, I tried to manipulate with a crochet hook the base of the hair and braid it into the front, and then when I had enough coverage from the first three rows sued individually the braids into the back. It's not a super great job, but for the first try I was happy and it gave me throw back vibes.
