Prada Inspiration-black lace

Ever since I've seen the Prada fall collection, I've been coveting lace and thought I wanted something to fit this trend.

Voila, I fell upon this lovely lace and ruffle top in the week for only £1.50!! But as it is so sheer, I had put it away, thinking of what I could wear underneath it. Well, thanks to Elle magazine, my free vest from yesterday is just the ticket!!


I was very pleased with the result and for not a lot spent too!!

The last picture is amazing but I don't think I can pull off so much lace! But the top you have is amazing <3 I need t find a lace top/skirt!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi sharifa-thanks for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comment too!

Hi yiqin-yes, I didn't look for a dress either,as I think it would be too much, plus I wouldn't necessarily wear it too-thanks so much!!hope you find something too!

She's Dressing Up said...

The top is great, and for £1.50 a bargain! I'm desperate for a lace body-con dress!

said...

Aw, thank you. My 4th was filled with BBQ, Pie & fireworks! :) How was yours? PS: The skirt was thrifted for me by my Mom, I love it when she finds me jewels among the mess. :)

Sharon Rose said...

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

Strange, every news outlet I've read has said she was in france.

meh...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi jen-she got her OBE at Buckingham Palace yesterday!!

Make Do & Mend said...

I loved the Prada collection too but am not a lace person. I'm going to find a solution to wearing some lace but in a way I can cope!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Kate-I couldn't do a dress or full outfit in lace but for the price, the top was a cheap buy to get into the trend and it may also get worn every now and then!

saray said...

great purchase!
and the outfit is lovely..

fashion herald said...

what a find, you look great in the lace!

Winnie said...

I have been wanting to covet something lacy too but haven't found anything yet. The top is lovely!!

Diana said...

I love lace, it's so romantic.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi saray-thats nice of you, thanks a lot!!

Hi fashion herald-thanks for a lovely comment!

Hi winnie-thanks a lot, hope you find something soon!!

Hi diana-so kind, thanks!!

AlicePleasance said...

I still have to study the Prada collection...I'm not sure if I like it or I dislike a lot...probably the first! By the way that top is precious :-)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi alicepleasance-I couldn't wear the prada look head to toe, but I think its great for inspiration-thanks a lot too!!

Wendy said...

Looking superb. I would totally get a lace top but I feel like it takes more thinking to wear than a dress. But pairing it with straight leg black pants is a good option.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi wendy-thanks a lot! I love the dresses in lace, but I wouldn't wear it often, so the top and trousers for me, is a more regular option.

angelgrotton said...

Oh dear ))) You look even better )))

Hugs from Angel.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi angelgrotton-so kind of you to say that, thanks!!

Danz said...

Lovely top Sharon! The black lace over the nude cami is sexy without being revealing. You look great!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi danz-yes, thats what I thought, it can be worn without being too revealing-thanks!!
