The Topshop V-Back Blouse

I found the perfect blouse on Thursday. I decided to "pop in" to Topshop in Dubai Mall to see if there was any good stock and there it was. At first I gravitated towards the colour, a nude with peach/pink undertones - and then I saw the v-back and dipped hem. It has a lovely movement to it when worn and the colour is incredibly flattering. Must. Have.

Because I have zero self control and get overexcited when I find something I love, I have actually worn it twice since then - once with blue skinny jeans for evening and once with white jeans for daytime. It's the perfect top although there are a couple of caveats to add:

1) I am not a lover of an exposed crotch. And this rises higher at the front so this is something I have to begrudgingly accept.
2) It sits low on the back. This is lovely but also slightly difficult when it comes to bra selection.

Those two things aside, it's a highly recommend! If they do this in more colours, I am buying.

Top: Topshop - Link! US Link!
Jeans: Zara (old)
Bag: Celine
Sunglasses: RayBan

By the way, on my lips is NARS's Chelsea Girls. This is a recent purchase/revelation. I have always looked at these little lip lacquer pots but avoided buying them because of the whole dipping/germs scenario. I thought sod it when doing a recent NARS online order and well, I LOVE the texture - a thick gloss/lipstick hybrid and the colour. It's that perfect "I'm not dead" nude - warm enough to look pretty. Expect to see it a lot more :)

  14. I received the NARS Silver Factory gift set as a graduation present and it included Chelsea Girls in a pure matte lipstick form. I wouldn't consider it matte, but just a more convenient version of their lip lacquer. They need to make it permanent!

  15. I love that color, but I just can't get bring myself to buy a potted lip color like that. I'm not great about carrying a lip brush, and the idea of dipping my finger in it kind of icks me out. A real shame, because the color is beyond gorgeous.

    Are you thinking of getting the Saint Laurant bag you posted on FB? I saw it in person for the first time (in a beautiful royal blue) and its STUNNING.
