The Style Network runs a show called Dress My Nest in the US. A designer, Thom (from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy), helps people fix up their homes. To get a sense of their style, Thom asks for “3 and 3” – three things you love and three things that reflect your style. He uses these props as inspiration. Rarely do the props become actual centerpieces of the room. On a recent episode (iTunes US), Thom is helping Tabitha. Tabitha is a single gal that is settling down after taking a turn globe trotting the world as a magician’s assistant.
One of Tabitha’s items is a rhinestone garter belt. (Click here to watch a small clip from the show and to see Tabitha unveil her three choices). I’m pretty sure I remember that piece from three years ago when Victoria’s Secret was producing a fall line and adding their own sense of glamour. I haven’t tracked any of the originals, even on the vast eBay. Frederick’s of Hollywood is offering a kit of bra and string for $39.00 US a piece.
I was also able to track down an actual garter belt from Body Lingerie for $39.75 US.
If you have no idea what to do with a garter belt (and I’m not sure why you would be reading TLP), then you can take some lessons from this instructional video.
And you can take a look at the designed room and the resources needed.
