How I Style Lip Service’s “School Girl” Bralette in my Dreams

This “In my Dreams” post couldn’t be more of a dream-worthy cause because I have always had terrible luck with bustiers. This may be too much information but breasts were not designed to fit into too tennis-ball shaped circles! They do in fact reach all the way back towards the armpit and up too (or past?) the collar bone.

But I digress.

The real interesting introduction is that I found this Lip Service bustier in the Nasty Gal Labor Day sale. While I don’t quite know what Labor Day is and if it applies to us Australian’s I will take full advantage of the fact that I bought it for twelve dollars. Twelve dollars.

So, while this beautiful little tartan beauty has a rather big chance of not fitting I can at least revel in the fact that I am a super awesome discount shopper, and my excitement for future outfits will be immortalised in this post. Am I getting too dramatic?

Skirt | Necklace | Boots | Coat

This outfit makes me think “eighties” because of the oversize blazer/coat with shoulders but a bit bohemian because of the necklace (I really want a big coin necklace!) and the midi skirt. The leather keeps the punky attitude of the tartan bustier but is at the same time pretty modest. Oh, and of course boots are a must!

Leather Shorts (either side) | Kimono | Boot | Socks

 When I started with this outfit I was playing up the “school girl” title. But the tailored shorts turned into leather shorts, and I had to throw a kimono as anice little cover up for sunny days. Finally, some nineties boots purely because I’ve been craving nineties boots lately.

Romantic, or witchy? I’m sure Stevie Nick’s would be proud. Soften up the hard plaid with this freakin’ amazing chiffon skirt. I was so close to buying it but I just couldn’t allow myself to press the confirm button! You will be mine.

What would you wear with a bustier? Or have you disowned them because of their incredulous ability to, uh, not fit? You and I may soon have that in common.

    I have faux leather booty shorts that I bought like ten years ago. Everyone kept saying they look trashy, now they're in fashion. It's funny how things work out like that.

      I still think they're trashy. I just like looking borderline trashy.

      Labor Day is an american holiday for workers.

      Or a three day weekend (Monday off) on the first weekend in September each year for most people here in the USA.

      This is usually the time to transition from summer mind set and living, back to the rest of the year.

      Hope I cleared it up for you.
