Lace, Satin & Layering

Lately, I’ve been inspired by Kendall Jenner’s style which makes me feel incredibly basic but everyone is a product of their environment, right??? (getmeoutofLAplz)

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.

faux fur-ASOS
choker-ASOS

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:

A Current Affair

I’m not really a vintage clothing person. I tried to vintage shop in high school but my mom deterred me from the whole thing. She doesn’t like the idea of me wearing “used” clothing.

I’m trying to get back into vintage shopping because there’s nothing like it. If one tries to stay “on trend” and keeps buying fast fashion–it’s an endless cycle of shopping. I’m trying to focus on buying higher quality pieces that I can wear for months rather than just a few weeks.

A Current Affair was such a cool event. I got to meet Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes (!!!) and check out a bunch of booths from around the state. My favorites were the James Roland Shop, Eden & Eden, Mixed Business and The Promised Land. So much gorgeous, high quality lace, silk and hand dyed indigo…I literally got chills at this event.

(Jane Aldridge & I)

Jane is such a sweetheart. I was a mumbling mess when I met her…I wanted to be like, “I’ve been following you for years and looking up to you and you’re one of the reasons I love fashion!!!” But instead I partially forgot how to speak….*sigh*….life

Incredible embroidery on these shorts. Didn’t end up getting these either because they were a bit too big. (I’m feelin’ a DIY comin’ along…)
