Straitjacket For A Strumpet

"What do you mean you don't love me?

How could you NOT love me?

I'll make you love me!!!

Hey, let go, let me go!

Stop, let go of me!!"


I've shown no such restrain in creating this luscious cuff.


Contemporary Striped Italian Dupioni Silk features a Venetian Satin Rose embellished with TONS of sparkly Glass Cubes and a delish trim of Faux Pearls upon Brass. Flirty ruffles to the left are composed from a blend of Velvet Chiffon Prints paired with Black Scalloped Lace.


Signature touches of rock queen chains adorn a king's ransom of gems namely Pink Topaz Bell Chandeliers, Labradorites, Mystic Pink Amethyst Briolettes, exquisite Pink Sapphires and utterly droolworthy Mystic Pink Amethyst Briolettes.


To left and right sides, more chains drape in a seemingly random fashion but WAIT, when viewed from the side, they form sexy structured loops [see bottom right image in Picture 3]. Gotcha!! Yet more chains cavort amidst a decadent frou frou hem of Black Lace to complete this opulent confection.


Equally luxe on the inside, this wristwrapper has been lined with new Taffeta. She measures 7" wide by 7.5" in height, and secures with hooks/eyes affixed to Grosgrain straitjacket-esque straps (hence the name) that are totally adjustable. Having said that, she best suits wrists measuring no smaller than 6", ensuring a comfy, snug fit.


STRAITJACKET FOR A STRUMPET is seamless as clearly evidenced from the pictures, with the exception of selected portions that have been intentionally prettied-up with fancy stitches.


All fabrics and findings used in Sheela Goh Couture designs (unless indicated otherwise) are truly antique, with some bits being over 100 years old. Seriously. So please, do wear her with care and respect.



Dry clean only.

Stitched entirely by hand, with needle and thread.
