knotty or nice

from mega post to maxi post. i am obsessed with interesting underpinnings. so i was in shock and awe coming across this amazingly straptastic bra. i'm in love with it. haven't taken it off in fact. it's actually a bikini top, but the problem with that is 1. it would leave the worst tan lines maybe, ever in the history of the world. and 2. it's dorito chip coverage would leave you flashing lovely beachgoing families. i'm all for flashing a cheek, but a nip isn't as well received. and this dress is way too long, but i can't seem to get it shortened, so instead the trusty knot. gives you a little tiny step syndrome, but it's better than the regal long dress train.
dress: splendid, bed jacket: winter kate, brakini: one teaspoon, necklace: c/o native l.a., bag: something else x natalie wood, pics: zoey grossman

  4. That bra is totally "straptastic" and I am totally enamored with your dress, and how you knotted the train. The statement necklace is like the cherry on top of a super chic outfit.

  7. i didn't get it at first brakini!!! anyway how can a simple dress create such an effect. simple give it to you, do something with accessories and voila: be ready to be bedazzled. i love the fact that the colors are not neutral and pretty dark and still it is a very exciting outfit. love love love the brakini, what an effect. i am wearing simular bra's by Marlies Dekkers. the necklace is superb and i love the delicate kimono. rock and rolla as always

  17. i love this, you look so effortless but cool you know? Don't even worry about not being able to shorten the dress it looks good as it is, the knot gives it more movement, i like. Have a good day!
