The other day, I was wandering through Zara and spotted this embroidered sheer top.
I thought it would be great for layering and expanding my wardrobe. I could wear it UNDER a slip dress, or OVER a camisole, I could wear it with a silk blush dress, under a white shirt, maybe be a bit experimental with it?
Well, it turned out to be really tricky to wear.
It was quite boxy and I couldn’t actually wear it with many things. And I didn’t feel comfortable in most of the combinations because – honestly, I just felt a bit frumpy and a bit like an aunty.
One evening, I was going out to an event, and I was in a bit of a hurry. I planned to wear jeans, a silk black cami and this sheer top. But it looked weird + baggy.
I tried it with a different coloured camisole top. A tighter-styled singlet top. A strapless top. A bandeau bra top. A crop top.
Eventually, I just went with my black strapless bra! (I didn’t have any other nice plain black bras. Just t-shirt bras and lace bras.) In the end it looked really nice and yeah, a bit sexy.
Not “aunty” at all! Haha.
Soooo… I guess I’d only wear it with a black bra?! Which means it wasn’t as versatile as I thought. Oh well! You can’t really learn these things unless you try them, right? I guess you could learn after reading someone’s blog post about it? Ha!
As for my jeans…
There has been so much hype about these jeans and omg, yes they are amazing.
They sell out really fast (I missed out the last time), but are always re-stocked. I love that they are thick, firm yet really stretchy and smooth. I think they are MUCH nicer than AG, Frame and Levis stretch jeans.
Unfortunately I’m short (160cm), and you can’t notice the cool knee holes until I sit down or walk.
They are so comfortable and feel amazing to wear. You’ll see me wearing it a lot!
