This could be a summer outfit (since the dress just screams summer) or an autumn one (the boots and knee-high socks). I love the dress, even though it is a little short. The boots are great with the white knee-highs and add a comfy feel to the whole look.
The corset didn't just have a huge influence in lingerie now a days but also in wedding dresses as you can see above. The lace up corset was build into wedding dresses to give the bride a better tight fit. I think it was a great idea!
