Chantilly Lace & A Pretty Face.

TOP: TOPSHOP
LACE SKIRT: SHAREEN VINTAGE LA
BODYCON SKIRT: TOPSHOP
SHOES: STEVE MADDEN
How gorgeous is this lace maxi skirt? I discovered her in Shareen Vintage, one of LA's many incredible vintage stores, and at $36 aka £24 she was too darn pretty and purse friendly to put back on the rail. As fab as she is I was concerned that I'd struggle with outfit options being so sheer an' all but I am nothing if not resourceful. On't eve of my first round of birthday celebrations I raided le wardrobe and after much trying on, umming, ahhing and of course stropping my Topshop bodycon skirt and scoop-backed jersey top came out winning. The bodycon worn underneath gives a flash of leg whilst covering me 'essentials' keeping it classy with a sexy nudge and the top dips low enough to reveal my blossoms. Not those blossoms, cheeky. My tattoo obvs.

Now what about the shoes? Fit right? I first spotted these Steve Madden Dynemite's on the lovely Ashley of Ring My Bell which are dead ringers for Prada and as soon as I stepped off of the plane in LA I made it my mission to gets me a pair. As luck would have it the Steve Madden store had one pair of both the black AND nude left in my size and not only were they in the sale they also had an extra tasty 20% off! I'd call that fate wouldn't you? Mission accomplished.
I loved this outfit and cannot wait to try the skirt in a more casual look this summer. Basic vest and sandals. Leather jacket and biker boots. Perfick. Also please excuse my head being cut out in this post, I took the shots pre make-up and hair so was looking rougher than a bears bum. Not ideal.
