i got a fishtail skirt from zara the other day. i love it and have already received spontaneous compliments from strangers! so now, of course, i must have more! i’ve been perusing jeffrey campbell and black milk pretty heavily lately (more on black milk later) and it’s put me in a rock kind of mood. with that in mind, i headed over to nastygal.com to take a look at what’s new because, you know, similar aesthetic but not always gonna break the bank. and whatdyaknow but i found some lovely tops with fishtail hems (that would look lovely with some black milk leggings)! all i can really do is *squee* over them. enjoy.
while this is not another fishtail top, it is a top and it is from nasty gal and i do think it needs to be mine. bam!

there’s a lot of cut out stuff out there right now. and a lot of it is not realistically wearable. maybe just for me. i don’t doubt there’s an audience out there that isn’t so conservative that she would wear a loose sweater with a giant hole in the back without a bra. but that’s not me. but that doesn’t mean i don’t want to partake! i just have to be more choosey. this dress from nasty gal though, struck me as a great balance. a little bit of cut out, add some sheer and a fishtail/hi-lo hem (which i am so in love with! i feel like it lets me wear a maxi without getting lost in all the fabric)…et voila! the extra detail of the tiny points on the top of the bandeau lining makes it so much more perfect for some reason. i really can’t pinpoint it, but i do love it!
