I fell in love with this harness via social media. I also saw one of my blogger buds wearing one as well but it wasn’t until perusing Reuben Reuel’s Etsy site and how he styled one of his dresses with this harness that I knew I needed one! After doing some poking around, I learned of Zana Bayne, THE HARNESS QUEEN. Not only has she made incredible harnesses worn by the likes of Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Madonna, but she has done some work with noted designers such as Prabal Gurung and Victoria’s Secret for their fashion shows.  I now stalk her website weekly and drool over everything I want.

I admit its a bit risqué but I love it. I’ve actually been wearing it a ton lately with cute little baby doll dresses, over white tees with denim jeans, and with anything white and lacey. It does what a leather jacket does for a lace dress…without the extra coverage.  Just take a look at Zana Bayne‘s website to get a glimpse of just how creative her and her team are. From a simple harness, to body harnesses and skirts and bags and even hats! I can’t wait to see what her next collection has in store. If you are wondering how to style a harness take a look here at the Prabal Gurung SS2014 show  or the FW2013 show which i loved!
