Pretty in Pearls

On the topic of pearls (see my previous post), I recently rediscovered this pearl & lace crochet top in my closet, which only cost about $10 at an Asian boutique in Aberdeen Centre. A number of years ago, I was extremely into Asian fashions because they catered to my more girly tastes. Lace, ruffles... you name it, I wanted it!

My style has evolved quite a bit since then; however, it's nice to still be able to work some old favourites into my current wardrobe. $10 well spent, no?

Top: Asian boutique / Blazer: Zara (similar) / Pants: Gap (here) / Bag: Miu Miu (in black)
Shoes: Ralph Lauren (here) / Earrings: Juicy Couture

  12. I used to wear more girly items as well (I say "used to", but it hasn't been a long time since then). Even though I wouldn't wear some of the exact looks I wore one year ago, I agree with you that it's fun to incorporate some of those girly pieces into your current style. This top is so pretty, it would be a shame not to wear it anymore!
