So apart from having a title that is completely unrelated to anything in this post, I must add that these shoes are painful. The kind of painful that leaves you with blisters in less than an hour. Tried toughing it out but ended up limping like a coward...

I hardly did this top justice. It has a back split that I forgot to photograph and is so light and airy, making it perfect for spring but I'm sneakily trying to wear it all year round with a few extra layers. However this brings me to a personal frustration I have with sheer tops (or dresses). I can never find the right thing to wear underneath it. It is so frustrating trying to find a nude-coloured singlet or slip around the house. Everything disappears mysteriously when I'm actually looking for it. And sometimes even the slip is visible underneath the top. I can never win! I'm not game enough to try my hand at the sheer top and bra look either, though I doubt I could pull it off tastefully.
