Wearing Undergarments as Outerwear / Vintage Bustier / Floral Skirt







Floral Pencil Skirt: H&M, Bustier: Vintage, Blazer: Ann Taylor, Platform Pumps: Marc Fisher, Necklace: vintage with stamp, Clutch: Tory Burch

Wearing undergarments as outerwear can be very sexy when tastefully done, and that means clearly intentionally. For example, I prefer not to show bra straps unless they're cute and lacy. This bustier is obviously an undergarment; when paired with the wrong things, it can be too risqué. I like to tone down the overtly sexy by pairing the bustier with very structured pieces, such as this beautiful tangerine blazer and floral pencil skirt. The structure, integrity of fabric, and tailored fit of the paired pieces lend an air of professionalism to the otherwise racy bustier. It's always about striking the right balance. 

In other news, I'm boarding a plane at 7am tomorrow to head to Osheaga Music Festival in Montreal. It's been an ordeal trying to figure out what to pack in preparation for the unpredictable weather, and the scattered showers forecast, AND still remain stylish. I'm pretty satisfied with what I've decided to pack so far. Maybe I'll share my outfits if I find the time to photograph them. :]
