I love fashion. It's just so fun to play around with!
I was still gravitating toward really feminine pieces like my super springy outfit, but I decided to switch it up. I couldn't resist this lacy blouse, but instead of wearing it as feminine as possible (which wouldn't be anything out of the ordinary for me), I decided to add a little bit of edge to it.
To juxtapose the femininity of the top, I added some harder, masculine details. My boots are super structured, and I did my eye makeup harsher than usual. I think the necklace (which I made) did a good job of balancing the two elements. The angles of the diamond pendant are consistent with the more structured elements, and the dangling chains soften it up a bit.
While this might not be the way I'd usually style a frilly, lacy top, I enjoyed playing around today and really liked the final product. Do you think it worked? How should I style it next?
I really am a sucker for a June cameo.
