Two-Piece Sheer Rose Top and Chanel-Style Double Pearl Necklace

Chanel-style double pearl necklace with sheer rose top
I'll get straight to the point: I've been lusting after this two-piece sheer rose top for ages. It's been sat in my online wish-list for what seems forever... and now it's mine and it has made me so happy. Isn't it ridiculous that a piece of clothing can do that to you? When I received it I practically did a "it's so gorgeous I'm gonna DIE!!!!!!" as I unwrapped it. It's from Front Row Shop, who have the most amazing selection of modern, on-trend and funky pieces I think I've seen since I discovered Asos nearly 15 years ago.

The top is in two parts, and both the tank and the t-shirt have the same rose print so it gives it this amazing out-of-focus effect. While I was shopping on their site I saw another covetable item: the double pearl necklace inspired by the Chanel SS14 collection. These two together, for me, were heaven. I wore the outfit when I went to London to take part in the filming of a video for the launch of Bare Mineral's new liquid foundation, so when the video is launched I'll let you know and you'll see the outfit in all its glory then. I'll be honest and admit these were taken on a different day... I was so tired and the top was so creased (that's a day in London and a long train journey for you) that I decided to wash it and photograph it another day.


My new favourite outfit ever? Maybe. I did have two ladies come up to me in the street and compliment my outfit - it made my day, especially as I was in the highly fashionable area of Kensington and Chelsea...!


Have you discovered any new-to-you brands lately? If so, what are they and what's their style like? Do share in the comments (I love to look up great brands I'm not familiar with)!

  11. The whole ensemble is just soooo eezy, breezy summer. That said, however, I am truly wild about the necklace!! Looking at your lovely face and form, it reminds me of how much I miss my 40s. Enjoy them while you have them.

    Cheers, M-T

  12. That top looks dreamy! My favourite way to find new brands lately has been by vintage shopping more and more. It always feels like Christmas walking into a new vintage shop because I never know quite what I'll come out with. xo cayisa.wordpress.com

  15. Beautiful! You do look lovely in those soft peachy pinks. And that necklace is super-cool...

  16. Fun top, well.. tanktop and top. You have to focus your eyes a bit haha.
    Any new brands? For me that is Denham for (skinny) jeans. Perfect jeans. Not cheap, but I wear them a couple of times a week. It is getting boring but that means good value.
