I've been searching for some sort of sheer jacket/shirt-type thing so you can imagine how thrilled I was to find this piece. It reminds me of the shirt Cher puts on in "Clueless" when her dad asks her if she's going to put something on over the Calvin Klein dress that "looks like underwear."

Well I'm off to the Netherlands! I'm excited to see this beautiful country I've heard so much about. I'm only there for a few days, but I'm hoping to find some time to explore. Have a nice week!

  5. what the hell is that? A dress. Says who? calvin Klein.

    I think I have seen Clueless at least 100 times.

  6. It does remind me of what Cher wears in Clueless! I haven't seen that movie in ages, I should definitely go rent that!

    Anyway, you look great, and I really like that Reiss skirt! It's stunning! Have fun on your trip! I"m sure it will be amazing!

  7. The shoes totes remind me of a flamingo. I love the kind of bustier detailing on the top - also love the sheerness of your jacket! And the skirt - ahhh love it!

  9. Oh man, yes, it does look exactly like the Clueless shirt! Is it bad that I pretty much have that movie memorized and still quote it far too often?

    Have an amazing trip! I have only been to Amsterdam, and that was for a day, but it was beautiful. You'll love it.

  73. "Duh, I was just going to"

    Love those Miu Mius... I'm in Italy, trying desperately not to buy the satin platforms (it seems so cheap in euro hahaha) If I have money left, like, the last day of the trip, I'll probably give in. That or a bag. Oii. Have an AMAZING time in the Netherlands!! Take photos :)
