Got the vintage Rolls,
Drop a couple hundreds tell him leave it at the door…”
Beyoncé – Get Me Bodied
As I mentioned in this post, lace bodies are a thing and although you have to get used to 3 poppers rustling around your crotch area (how multifunctional – underwear and a top all in one…) bodies give you that little bit of covering that signals you still have some dignity but in essence you may as well be wearing just a bra. So this is exactly what I decided to do with my OOTD. I thought it would be appropriate for a night out to wear what could be described as a DIY cat suit, as I paired my lace body with high-waisted leggings.

Half the battle of wearing a lace body is choosing the right bra. This is not the day for you to be “comfortable” and wear some horrible bra you have kept for the last 3 years and continue to wear although the elastic has pretty much disappeared and it has become home to hundreds of tiny bobbles from over-washing. This is also not the day for you to wear that neon monstrosity you bought for your summer holiday (we are all guilty), this is the day for you to wear a pretty good coverage, simple but never boring black bra. Remember, keep it classy ladies, but keep it fun.
If I do say so myself my make up was pretty on point thanks to the pain-staking application of false lashes and some pretty fun (and festive) glitter eyeliner, scroll down for make up deets.
