“Blue Down To My Shoes”

01 Mar

It seems when I stumbled across the Kira set from Seldom Blue last year, it was relatively soon after it’s release. While six months is a long time in fashion, this piece is definately worth a revisit. It’s offered in Black, Cool Green, Electric Blue, Nude, Magenta, Lilac, and Misty Blue.

While it’s the most expensive piece I’ve yet shared with you, it is also the most generous in terms of pieces; two versions EACH of the bra, corset, panties, two skirt options… and multiple layer options are available for nearly all of them! The differing versions include see-through/peekaboo options as well as ones with more coverage for the modest. The Kira set is also remarkable for its extras – prim lace edging for the bra and an adorable little corset-lacing bow.

What’s “Just Right”: The detail work on the fabric itself is remarkable. You can practically hear the rustle of taffetta. The lacing up the front is executed extremely well. I love the lace pattern on the upper portion of the bra cup, which is also repeated on the stockings. The wide band of lace there is striking, and the band of blue draws the eye. Of the skirts, my preference is for the sheer ‘frill’ option, rather than the longer one. I think the flat prims on the short skirt look and lay more naturally than the rounded prims on the long version.

I also like the secondary fabric used as an accent on the stockings that provides a decorative element on the back of the corset. She didn’t have to add extra detail there; but she did, and it really adds to the garment construction.

What Could Use Improvement: The long prim skirt. The shape chosen for the prims doesn’t enhance the piece. There’s a small rosette on the nipple area; I think it distracts a little from the beauty of the bra and the outfit would have been better without it.

Additional Details: SeldomBlue has a very strong xstreet presence, which is just lovely for those wanting to shop for their significant others or friends. Note that many of her wares are offered on Xstreet Uncensored, which may cause issues if you’re browsing/shopping from work…

Tattoo Friendly?: Partially – torso only. There is not a combo garterbelt/panty option for those who wear lower body tattoos. I asked the designer about it and she mentioned that she would be willing to make one on a commission basis for 800L, as she’d have to build it from scratch.
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Mostly – Some of the vertical detail on the bra gets distorted on higher-slider girls. Moderate shapes shouldn’t have this issue.
Multi-purpose pieces?: Yes. I wear the long corset combined with other pieces for clubbing.
