London cropped Tee; TopShop, Lilac bodycon dress; TopShop, Boots; Frye

So yeah, the dress was way more see-through then I thought, you know; everything’s fine in front of the mirror but the outside its a whole different story..

I’m still “desperatly seeking” a simple skin colored (note; not see-through tube) dress that I can wear under everything.. somehow they only come around being shape shifting, shape lifting, shape whatever-ing, looking like the most uncomfortable architectural corsets, or overly lace and yes see-through.. no I’m looking for a very simple stretchy tube that’s uhm actually invisible..

The Frye boots get better and better while being worn, I remember being so disappointed when I just got them and they still looked brand new, I guess with boots the quality of the leather must be good in order for that nicely worn feel..

Right now I’m really eying the All Saints chalk boots but I still have a hard time visualizing how they would turn out and a hard time figuring out which ones I like the most; these, these or these, or stick with the damisi model in chalk suede (that I already have in black leather) hmmm

    Kan American Apparel je geen raad bieden voor het perfecte bodycon jurkje? Grappig ook, net toen ik je blog laadde sprong “Lilac Wine” van Jeff Buckley op. Toeval? Of magie?

    I just bought some boots almost exactly like the all saints ones you pictured and I have no idea how to wear them either. You can check out some of my (possibly) failed attempts when they get here and maybe together we can figure out a cute outfit. I was thinking light denim cutoffs and an oversized silk blouse, but that’s pretty damn boring.

    Love this outfit, by the way. You always look amazing.

    coolness…
    reminds me of the 90’s grunge look.. I love to pair up cute white lace things with black fierce pieces.. like those boots and black tee over the dress.. great combo

    You always mix things so well. The nude body con dress pairs nicely underneath the crop top.

    And I recently went to the All Saints store in Soho and loving everything in there. Although it’s all a bit out my price range. My sister did fall in love with their boots because of the distressing details on them.

    I am adoring your outfit. Love the top with that lace dress. But I agree, it is very difficult to find slips that aren’t spanx, or actually slips, lol. And yes, agreed – leather just gets better with age. Those Frye boots are looking absolutely darling now.
