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!

Love the clueless reference- I totally know what you're talking about :)

Fashion Butter said...

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

I think I have seen Clueless at least 100 times.

Tasha said...

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!

Michelle Elaine said...

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!

Whole outfit is hiper perfect, darling E! :D

Jill said...

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.

Lizzy Webb said...

I'm in love with this skirt! I think the white layers is such a cool look. I was eyeing a similar skirt from DVF, but I couldn't find it in a store to try it on and I wasn't brave enough to buy it online sight unseen. Enjoy your trip - hope you'll take some pictures to share.

You are just classy times one hundred! What a perfectly beautiful look! It is funny, you look nothing like Audrey Hepburn (besides also being beautiful) yet at the same time you remind me so much of her! You have such grace!

"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 :)
