This weekend I wanted to do an outfit update on the gorgeous Zinke jumper that I featured in one of my recent Friday Lingerie Lust posts. The “All Things Nice” jumper is from Zinke‘s Souvenir collection; a super sexy lace bodysuit with a halter neck tie and deep v neckline that I fell in love with when I saw it.
Zinke’s lovely PR lady helped me to locate a NYC boutique that stocked the jumper and I popped along to Gabriella New York Bridal Salon in Meatpacking – a beautiful space full of gorgeous bridal gowns and accessories (who I hope to return to for a feature on the blog so watch this space!) who found me the jumper in my size.
I’m a very happy customer. I love the feel of lace on my skin. I’ve been wondering about the different ways I might wear it – it feels a tragedy to consign this bodysuit to underwear or lounge wear only… Here I was experimenting a bit, I tried it on underneath my suit jacket and actually I love the contrast of the sharp tailored blazer with the delicate lace underneath.
I feel as though I am moving towards acknowledging Fall styles now, and as always, Blog Reader, a return to the chic simplicity of monochrome (my favourite). However, you can also see I’m back to embracing inner-wear as outer-wear again Blog Reader – I am certain you must have all tried this by now mm hh?
Wearing: Blazer from River Island. (This is such an old jacket but it has stood the test of time. River Island I salute you). Super lightweight legging jeans from Gap. (I urge everyone to get to Gap who have a sale – $20 off their 1969 line of skinny jeans which I think have a truly amazing fit.) Lace jumper from Zinke.
I hope you all had a great weekend – I’m heading to Texas on Weds
to enter a rodeo and play cowgirl and to explore all Austin has to offer. I’ll be sure to take some new outfit pics that channel Roberto Cavalli’s SS/11 collection against the new Texan scenery.
