because most of my holiday was spent at home or at friends, i didn’t shop for anything super-fancy. i did spot this banana republic bustier during an internal walkthrough and immediately put it on my wishlist, and bought the black one as soon as it hit stores. i love the high-low hem and tuxedo details, not to mention it’s got boning inside and a bra strap to hold you in place.
forever 21 cardigan (sold out, similar here and here, both under $100), banana republic bustier (white still available online), j. crew jeans (wearing a 27) and scarf, charles jourdan pumps c/o dsw (old), super sunglasses, chanel bag, vintage earrings, hermes bracelet (pre-owned version), burberry lip velvet lipstick in damson no. 425
