you've got chainmail


i suddenly have the urge to start working chainmail into my wardrobe!

1. i wonder if there is such thing as a chainmail bra. to have peeking from under a low cute tee.
2. or a cropped chainmail vest
3. or am i just going completely mad due to sleep deprevation?

That looks so cool. I like the idea of a chainmail vest. But a chainmail bra makes me shudder, it would rub your boobs, ouch!

hrose said...

oooh very daphne guinness! i love the idea.
a chainmail vest would be very cool, worn over a plain black top or something... i'm sure there is a chainmail bra, it's just a matter of going to the kind of shop where that sort of item is sold haha. :P

you're not going mad, you've got me thinking about it now too. and great pic btw.

hope you had a lovely weekend!

Brrr a chainmail bra would be cold! I guess your nips wouldn't show though... but still! Chainmail vest is much more do-able.

I'm totally a fan of the chainmail bra...pain is no deterrent for me!

Aisha said...

A 'cropped chainmail vest'... I like that idea, go for it.

ginny said...

a chain mail vest would be extremely cool.

you'd think itd be too much, chainmail & thigh high boots, but leave it to a french woman to make look seamlessly chic.

and im with you on a chainmail bra, im sure its out there somewhere...

one day i want a chainmail headdress to wear at my wedding...

LOVE this look.

I don't think you're going mad. Chainmail looks amazing when done the right way, just as that gorgeous girl in the photo is demonstrating!

alex hannah said...

definitely not going mad! i like both ideas, which is giving me ideas!

wow that is really hot, love it!

i think a chainmail bra would be killer, although probably a cotton lining would be preferable.

possibly...:P .i think it'd be cold to wear against the skin

Chelsea Rae said...

If there isn't a chain mail bra, there needs to bee one because your idea sounds so perfect!

Theresa said...

She looks so effortlessly chic, I'm all for a chain mail bra, there has to be one out there

I like the idea of the chainmail bra, but I think it would only be comfortable for about 30 seconds. It sure would look good though.

MR style said...

doesnt it look like balenciaga ?!!!

I had actually been looking for something like a chainmail vest or something like that for a while but I've found that it's quite expensive. Although there was a lot of chainmail lingerie (like bras) on ebay that came up, although I dunno how comfortable that would be?! Maybe you could layer it over a black bra, that could look pretty cool.

Fleurr De Lux said...

leather+chainmail=really really cool.
good luck with the bra idea, i'm so intrigued!

that chainmail dress is amazing!
I'm not completely sure how well a bra would work out though...

Tala said...

KATLIN said...

'cropped chainmail vest' yeah!! that sounds good
you could look in things like paco rabanne, but would be really expensive.
i love the look and the picture, i'm such a fan of garance dore's work

it's wonderful to see ece s√ľkan, a turkish model/stylist/vintage shop owner, as your inspiration! she's definitely one of my favorites.

Lady King said...

Woah, de ja vu! I was thinking the same thing a couple weeks ago! I'm pretty sure when TWO people have the same insane idea, it means it's not THAT insane.
Although, crazy cat ladies the world over might also be partial to the chain mail idea. All those claws....

huh. Well, maybe it is crazy. But, the Christopher Kane type of crazy, for sure, for sure.

If you're still on about this - consider a broad collar, almost like the top half of a bra or the top of a low-cut T-shirt, in chainmail under your low-cut shirt. This can imply the chainmail bra without all any associated pains. Double bonus that if the shirt comes off for anyone special, the bra isn't even a full bra - just instan lingerie
