Sheer madness

Navy blouse c/o Lovely Wholesale / Lace skirt from Shop Ruche / Studded black bag / Navy Keds sneakers 

I'd like to take this time to highlight the importance of having good lighting in your room. I got ready for work thinking I had a nice little outfit going on. It wasn't until after I got off work that I was informed that my shirt was fairly see-through. Oh, the shame! I work in an office with big bright windows and I'm pretty sure that lighting situation brought some unwanted highlights to my outfit. So thanks to dim lighting in my room (and maybe not enough caffeine), I didn't see that my bra was visible. Terrific. 

In other news, I won a gift card to Shop Ruche about a year ago from Lot 65. I've been waiting for my friends to get married so I could buy something accordingly, but I got tired of waiting and went for this skirt while it was on sale. It's so pretty, but I gotta say that I'm disappointed that it fits a bit too tight. On the site, the measurements fit my usual size. But with this skirt on, it constricts my ribs and leaves a purple ring around my torso from cutting the blood circulation. Ugh, I hate inconsistent sizing.

  1. That sucks, that why I am a bit skeptical when it comes to shopping online, I am always worried about the sizing. I love the pairing of this outfit. The lace is perfect, its too bad it was sea-through.

  8. Boy can I relate! I have terrible lighting in my room. God awful. Usually it's a problem when it comes to my makeup. Sometimes I look so beautifully blended but then I look at my face in the car and turns out I still have major dark circles. >.<

    This is a great outfit-- you've blended different styles very nicely here. But you do that with all your outfits. ;)

  16. Oh well! I would be lying if I said no one ever saw my bra through so sheer tops. It's a lovely look, so you should still be proud. Very light and feminine.

  19. Wow you look so beautiful in this outfit! So romantic! :)
    Such a shame that the skirt doesn't fit you perfectly, I definitely know what you mean as I hate the feeling of disappointment when I have spent my money online on an item that at the end doesn't even fit!
    But besides that as I said this is such lovely outfit!

  25. Love this feminine look! And I agree, good lighting is important - I sometimes don't realize that certain things are see-through either.

  26. Don't worry. Just wear a cardigan at work or place a permanent cardigan at work so you can avoid issues like that =)
    I really like those lace trimmings on the shoulder =)
