Alice Yim New York: Chiffon and Lace

Alice Yim remains one of my favourite New York designers.  She recently celebrated the two-year anniversary of her namesake label at a rooftop bar in Manhattan, a super stylish event (naturally!) and an opportunity for me to thank Alice for designing clothes that are fabulous to look at and that I feel wonderful wearing.

This outfit from Alice’s spring summer collection - the Sparrow skirt in sapphire blue and the Sierra top in onyx – is a delightful combination of sheer lace and floaty chiffon layers.  It’s an outfit I want to dance and sing in (evidenced by the photoshoot, yes Lydia Hudgens can probably confirm I was a little loopy this day…)

The Sierra top is a gorgeous off the shoulder lace design, falling just at the right place on the waist to go with high-rise styles (I wore it with some high-waisted skinny jeans and high heels too and loved the look).  The bustier underneath is an old style from Reiss – there is a challenge to find the perfect under garment for this top but I think lace/sheer is super glamorous when done right. Just remember that less is more Blog Reader, less is more.

I have half an eye on this outfit for dancing in Charleston, where I am heading this weekend.  I wanted to ask – what do you wear to go dancing in, Blog Reader?

My trusty Zara basic sandals come out again to complete this outfit.

Stay tuned for a feature on Alice Yim’s autumn winter collection, coming soon.

Wearing: Zara sandals; Sparrow skirt and Sierra top from Alice Yim; Reiss bustier (just seen).
