I know all of you have seen this top many times over. When it came out, it was so new and distinctive that fashionistas rushed to buy it, including this one. It was blogged over and over again. That happens when items are exciting and fresh. The thing is, though, that this top has qualities that make it good investment dressing, too. It’s something to hang onto for the long haul, to be pulled out next year and the year after that because it is not only well-made, but it is made to play well with others. The relatively short waist keeps it from conflicting with skirts and pants. The lack of a collar lets it fit with lots of jewelry and even several jackets. It’s a keeper.
Today I paired it with this fabulous new pencil skirt from Baiastice. I love that she put in this soft version of a kick pleat in the back, adding an extra bit of stretch when you walk so the fabric does not get so streched. This skirt was released in five solids, six bi-colors and six leathers.
I dug into the back of my shoe closet and pulled out these old Allegre pumps from Maitreya. I kind of love how its vintage shape suits the neo-retro aesthetic of the top.
The hair from Vanity Hair is all about taking a retro vibe and giving it a modern edge. The Paper Couture jewelry is timeless.
The porcelain skin with the dramatic makeup in Tuty’s Heather for Skin Fair also has a bit of a retro vibe. However, is there anyone more modern that Dita von Teese who famously wore a 3D printed dress last week? I love when a look can have these retro grace notes while still being absolutely current.
