So, I hesitated at this top for two reasons;
1) I’m really not so sold on this new lets-wear-see-through-lace-tops-and-feign-oblivion-that-everyone-can-see-my-push-up-bra-with-extra-diamanté trend.
2) Its from primark. Barf at the human injustice.
however, my counter points include;
1) I kind of see sometimes glimpses of the sentiment behind the trend and am inspired to try and make it look little less tramp stamp. I’m not sure if it was successful or not but while my residence is still in Coventry I don’t see that I would have stuck out much either way ;)
the idea was to
a) make the look high waisted so that really the only part you wouldn’t normally see was a small strip of skin beneath the bra, and
b) use a plain sports bra underneath to minimise cleavage and eliminate ‘come-hither’ subtext.
my other counter-point is that I did not directly purchase this item from Primark, which means that it’s original owner did not only purchase this top from the devils lair – they then failed to appreciate and value the top by dis-guarding it.
So really, I’m righting two wrongs. Maybe.
Also, I know this is a somewhat ridiculous pose, but it has cause, I promise. Now in reality wore this with my skuffy Nike’s, which I did enjoy, but felt like something a little more glamorous could have been aspired for were I to wear this anywhere vaighly important. So this is me imagining myself wearing super fabulous wooden wedges that chime in with the elephant necklace and that I can walk in perfectly, of course.
