How frickin' awesome is this Alberta Ferretti black-lace blouse? It's a splurge piece, defo, but look how many different ways I've come up with it so far to wear it:
#1: fashion-forward (right)
#2: edgy with a rocker chick vibe (below left)
#3: laid back & boho (below right)
For #4, above, the feel is creative. A mix of prints, a dash of whimsy, a smattering of the extremely feminine against the oddly androgenous. However, it works like a charm, mostly because the key colors are consistent, but the charm part comes from unexpected elements: instead of a black shoe, an earth-tone that is mirrored in the coppery metal of the glasses frames, creating visual bookends that tie everything together. Plus, a girl wearing this ensemble would pique all the right people's curiosity & have them dying to get to know her.
