My obsession with vintage Laura Ashley dresses is no secret and I'm thrilled to have added a new one to my ever growing collection. I didn't have one with any...
Le bustier fleuri
One of my absolute favourite pieces of garment is the bustier top. The definition of the bustier reads: a tight piece of clothing that covers the upper part of a woman’s body and that is worn by itself or under other clothes. Its purpose is to lift the bust, while gently shaping the waist. In the last few seasons we have witnessed a bustier revival, with a multitude of styles being available, both in the mass-market shops and in designers’ collections.
The combination that I will always love is bustier top + high-waisted skirt: it’s super feminine, it accentuates all the right parts of the body and it has that retro feel that I’m obsessed with. I also love wearing bustiers with high-waisted palazzo pants. I would like to emphasize the high-waisted part; in my opinion, showing more than a couple of centimeters of your midriff while walking around town is very, very tacky.
I’m wearing a Kelly Brook for New Look bustier top, a Coast skirt, New Look sandals and a vintage bag
