Jumper: ASOS, Skirt: Taobao, Shoes: Senso, Bag: MyLeather.com.au, Watch: Michael Kors from Status Accessories, Necklace: Dallas & Carlos
The delicate mesh underlayer of this skirt is the perfect match with the perfectly constructed structure. And by delicate I mean it tore as soon as it was handled, and by structure I mean it was built for a thirteen year old boy with no hips. There are so many benefits to buying off Taobao - cheap, and the entire website is in Chinese so the whole process of ordering off it is so convoluted that you're guaranteed nobody around you is wearing the same poorly-made knock off jumper. Although it does epitomise "you get what you pay for", my fondness for $15 Asian counterfeit goods will never dim. I was forced to wear the jumper over it because the waist was made far too big and the hip/butt area too small - I am far, far away from my dream, bountiful, twerkable ass, so it's definitely not my incredible latino curves that is the problem - it's that Asian clothes are made for straight up and down tiny androgynous girls.
I was told by a friend that cable knit is so 2010, but there's something about wearing knitwear that is akin to having many pretzels hugging your torso that will never go out of fashion. Crisp, tailored white pieces will definitely be making a return to my closet during winter - it just takes a tad too much effort of wearing the right underwear and trying not to sweat or move that makes summer whites a mere pipe dream.
