Over here in the U.K, we get what I'd call blink and you'll miss it summer. I've given up allocating unnecessary hard earned money to fund my summer wardrobe. I've spent more time wrapped up in my parka than wearing cute summer dresses. Forgive me if you see plenty of recycling over here on my blog. Most of what I'm wearing are from yesteryears which you've all seen many times before. 

I've been thinking of ways I can add a dressier summer top to my existing wardrobe which can also be worn when the colder months come around again. I was trawling Vestiaire Collective (as I normally do when I've got a moment to spare) and came across this near new lace top from Vanessa Bruno Spring/Summer 2015 collection at a steep discount. Of course, I was too cheap to spring £300  for the same thing the previous year. As you probably know, the French designers are notorious for their itty bitty sizing so I sized up to a 40 as opposed to my usual 36/38. 

Surprisingly, I could get away with wearing a nude bra underneath because of the thicker knit but the lace material also kept me cool under the blistering summer heat. I wore a Petit Bateau nude vest (second photo) when the temperature dipped below 20˚C. The best thing about a well made lace top is you could dress it up or down depending on the occasion. 


  1. Lovely top. I never thought about how versatile a white lace top could be!

  2. Lovely top! It seems quite versatile. You could easily dress it up with a pair of black trousers and heels. But I like how you styled it so casually in these outfits.

  3. What a cute top! I like styling it with shorts.

  4. Something about a lace top screams feminine, fancy, and stylish to me. And anytime I want to dress up for a special occasion, such as a Christmas party or a birthday dinner, I reach for a lovely lace blouse. Wearing a top with great texture will not only make you stand out, but it will also perfectly compliment the event. Fortunately, you have the option of dressing it up or down. Lace tops may be dressed up with a pair of fancy slacks and shoes, or down with a pair of jeans for a more casual approach. But I'll go into more detail about that later! Having a lace top (or three) in your closet will make getting ready easier while also making you seem stylish. Get Elden Ring classes here for free.
