Without realizing it, this look encompasses everything I dig:  fringe, lace, side zippers, studs and buckles.  And ironically, it’s Monday and I borrowed this Cheap Monday Brenda bodysuit from Melly, albeit yesterday.  I regret not snatching up one of these since they’re perfect for layering and throwing on underneath blazers.  I’ve scoured the internet looking for one in XS, but came up empty.  If you’re looking to fill a lace bodysuit void in your closet, in my search, I found that Urban Outfitters still has the mint green in a large (on sale), Revolve Clothing has size medium in white, and Shopcultist has size small and medium in the white, as well as the black in medium.

After watching one of my favorite Sex and the City episodes this weekend, I’ll leave you with a Carrie quote:

    If I wore all my favorite trends at once I would get so confused and look a bit of a mess- but you know how to style it and pull it off every time, Becs! Love the combo of the black with the denim especially.

  33. July 7, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    OOoooooh you really give us the evidence that THE “BOMBnextDoor” is intrinsically a scorching “short denim shorts Goddess” !!!!!
    ps: AND I really like the way these side zippers instil such a sulfurous “SM CHIC” twist on it . . .
    Marvelously Radiant as Always Dear .

    how come when I wear a lace bodysuit it never comes out as cool as this? The view from your balcony(?) is sweet.

    ps. i put a picture of the tattoo up if you’re still wondering what it is…

  37. July 8, 2009 at 12:23 am

    love the mix of late and fringe all that good stuff… UK’ers check out primark for lace bodysuits (lace isn’t that lush but will do for layering)
    how’d you get the picture effects on that first pic? x x x

    Hey lovely,
    I’m so sorry for the lack of comments and hellos, my dear. I didn’t feel very well in the past weeks and so I didn’t spend time on bloggin and neither visit my favorite blogs. Now I’m “recovering” from the latest down and siting on the desk again 🙂
    I hope all is well, darling. Please give a big kiss to Mel, too! Will visit her blog now as well.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
    much love and xxxxxxxxxxx
