Bustier Tunic and Lace Hem Culotte




Lace has been a trophy fabric for multiple seasons and stays very popular with the fashion crowd. Found both on clothing and accessories, the grace of lace is unmatched and is here to stay.

The use of rich fabrics and an eye for detail are a couple ways to describe New York based designer Jonathan Simkhai. This look is a fusion of both. The fit and flare silhouette is one I love so much as do most gals for the obvious reason that it gives an hourglass look. Finished with a gold leather choker and gold studded heels, I was good to go. I adore the lace in the hem, such an unexpected twist as well as the flared sleeves. The tunic can be styled by itself and would look great with ankle boots and a choker. Would you like me to style the tunic by itself?
 Let me know.

I must add that ever since the ‘boob fairy’ arrived over 10 yrs ago, fitting certain tops have been challenging. A gentle tuck and whispers of ‘stay’ are usually all it takes. Didn’t work this time. So if you’re giving me the side eye, just know I tried.

  15. I'm smitten by this lace on lace look. Sure, I would like to see the tunics styled on its own...and the pants too...but I for now I'll enjoy seeing them together. It is really a match made in heaven. I love lace...I think it has to do with the fact that my grandmother always did embroidery and crochet...and somehow I connect lace with that. I just love that kind of details.

    I love blue...and pairing it with gold accessories was such a great decisions. I love that choker necklace...the heels are perfect as well...and the little bag- so divine!

    This set looks gorgeous on you....You always rock! Well, you know I'm a huge fan of your style sense.

    You made me laugh with that boob fairy comment...I've gained some weight recently and it seems to be that it all went into the chest area so getting tops to fit is starting to be a challenge for me as well.

  35. The pattern with that lace is so intricate and cool and a wonderful color chosen for it as well. Looks amazing on you! That bag is so fancy and the peep-toe shoes are always a welcome site. Yes, please style the tunic on its own sometime if you can. I was having a fantastic time picturing you in it both with tights and bare-legged in many seated poses as I enjoyed these shots tonight. That, added to your lovely face and sweet, stunning breasts combined in that last shot to bring me incredible pleasure!! They did seem to be escaping a bit and that only made it more exciting for me ;) Happy week to you, dear, and thank you for all your kindness!
