Naturally, the bralette she wore in the photo above is sold out but there’s an option to be put on the waiting list here. The bralette was designed by LA native and formal model, Anine Bing.
Here are some other options:
Since this bra has underwire in it, it’ll have to be layered over a skin tight white top or even a short sleeve bodysuit. You can always go for a For Love & Lemons SKIVVIES bralette but then your basic level would be off the charts so I’d advise against it. I’m going to be recreating this layered bralette look but here is my take on the satin slip over white tee trend. There’s something so sophisticated about satin dresses and faux fur.
If you haven’t ordered from Verge Girl yet, I highly recommend it. The brand is located in Australia but it’s definitely worth the $22 shipping fee to the US. The quality is great and the fit is exactly as described. Surprisingly, my order came within 4 business days. This dress is definitely a new favorite of mine:
Quick outfit post before I go back to qualitative data analyses…(someone please remind me why I chose to major in Psychology?? Anybody?)
Finals prep, senior events, end of the year celebrations, concerts, moving out–everything is moving so fast. Every time I see a freshman I think back to what a child I was four years ago. Just kidding, let’s be real, I’m still a child but with more prominent cheek bones and a few gray hairs.
In other news, I’m going to Kaskade next week and I just bought my ticket to HARD Summer. I like how I say I’m done with music festivals yet I keep goin’ back. Buy experiences, not material goods.
I’m constantly trying to figure out my specific style and I feel like I’m getting closer every day. I am most comfortable in clothing that is two sizes too big for me. I can’t wear push up bras and low cut tops. I dread being compared to the Kardashians just because of my long hair, skin color and body type. I feel “sexiest” wearing oversized clothing, showing off my waist, my shoulders, using strategically placed mesh fabric, wearing satins and silks. I would rather be sultry than overtly sexy.
This outfit describes me pretty well–quirky, chic, unpredictable yet runway inspired (Gucci SS16–still obsessed). I’m in a constant struggle between being enticed by “fast fashion” but also wanting to look grown up and polished. I will always love blue lipstick, Doc Marten’s and glitter but I’m ready to be an adult.
I could never condemn another woman for wearing what makes her happy–free the nipple, wear booty shorts, do whatever you want. But this is me. I simply don’t understand the benefit to dressing this type of way. Men should not objectify our anatomy in the first place but as we all know, this has not changed over the years. I came across some photos on Kim Kardashian’s Instagram that rendered me speechless:
We all have those friends that post photos like these (but maybe a bit less X-rated) using lollipops, ring pops, ice cream cones and the like. Why on EARTH do women post this shit? Is it because of the attention received? But why would one want this type of attention? Why would you want a man to comment provocative bull shit on your post? Why does it matter if you get 258 likes instead of 125? Social media isn’t real life.
