After purchasing this top last October I have tried it on and taken it off so many times I thought that maybe it was a lost cause!
A sleeveless, navy top sounds so easy, right? It's kind of hard to tell from the pictures, but the texture is actually very interesting, it has a sort of soft netting draped in all directions which makes it slightly puffy but not unflattering. I thought for sure I'd wear it with everything! Yet for whatever reason, it remained folded, never worn, in my dresser.
After my last post, I had to figure out what to do with it. I wore it to work with a simple pencil skirt and it was fine but sort of boring, and perhaps that's what kept me from wearing it before. Blah. But after having a discussion about men's wear with a girlfriend recently, I decided to move into an entirely different direction with it, and I love how it worked out...
Strangely enough, most of the items that I'm wearing have been laying around dormant in my closet anyway. Layered over a simple white button down shirt, a rarely worn item itself, and an old pair of cropped pants, not worn in probably 4 years, I ended up with a very "geek chic" kind look and I love it! The gold belt was an early summer purchase, (never worn,) and the flower broach is vintage and made of metal which makes it very heavy and hard to wear on delicate fabrics. And the heels were the finishing touch to keep the look more feminine.
Success at last!
