I love a good “jeans and nice top combo”!
Especially when it’s a super-fancy statement top, that’s possibly bordering on over the top :)

I’m a bit obsessed about this brand. I love all their lace dresses and statement ruffle tops.
I’m slightly worried that in a few years I’d go “what was I thinking?!” but I have a good hunch that expertly ruffled and draped tops will still be in fashion, especially when worn to a cocktail function or special event.
I’d be able to wear this with black pants, mini, midi and maxi black skirts, white pants… the list goes on.
This top is actually a “one shoulder” top, but I’ve dropped one shoulder to make it an “off shoulder” top.
The only issue I have is the sizing. I’m usually a Size AU 6 or UK6… which usually translates to a US 0.
This top is a UK 4 / US 0… so it’s a tiny bit squeezy for me. It fits perfectly on my body/waist and it stays put. It’s a little tight at the arm holes and shoulders… so I won’t be reaching up high to get wine glasses from a top cupboard or anything haha.
I have another Self Portrait top that is UK 6/ US 2, which is a better fit at the arm holes and shoulder, but a bit loose at the waist, so it slides up/down.
But they are still very wearable for me!
I knew this bag would be delicate when I got it! And after using it a few times, YES it is super fragile and I’m quite afraid of smashing the wood against something or snapping the string that holds it all together.
So I simply use it as I would a small clutch: holding only my phone, card case, and a small leather pouch for my lipstick and keys.
Not very practical, but sooooo pretty haha – I guess it’s a similar story if you love mini handbags.
I also like this Black Acrylic Luna Circle Bag by Cult Gaia, it’d be easy to clean and a bit more flexible (maybe?). But that one is a little more expensive.
