Not Too Transparent


Top: Bec & Bridge from Aust // Skirt: Ellery // Bra: Cosabella // Shoes: Christian Louboutin // Sunglasses: Ksubi from Aust// Necklace: Jewelmint

I admit, when it comes to bras I have a bit of a problem…they just keep getting better and beg to be incorporated into an outfit. For a night out, I really don’t think you can go wrong with some black transparency and the appropriate lingerie beneath. What do I mean by appropriate? It’s like, don’t wear your nudey soft bra that you bought from the PINK section of Victoria’s Secret because you wanted to hide lines - that friends, is the granny panty of cup size. This is the time when you break out the lace, the strappy, the often unpractical (however, I consider this one from Cosabella to be one of the most overworked in my wardrobe-obsessed). While a look like this works easily with a simple pair of jeans, I bought this skirt (three sizes too big and altered the heck out of it) because when things are easy on top, an interesting skirt or pair of shorts can take the look to another level. The brown/black color combo is perfect for this time of year and, yes, after months of bragging…it is officially like, 50 degrees in LA. This too shall pass.
