You’d think they wouldn’t go together…but they do! Last night I had planned to wear a new off the shoulder dress I got in the mail from ASOS.com (which you can see here). But because of the weather (we got a bit of rain and wind from Hurricane Irene), I decided on something that was a bit more covered up. I’ve been excited to wear a new blouse I got from Nordstroms. Although it is a bit more modest because it has long sleeves, the back of the blouse is pretty sheer. It’s also bright red, which is a big trend for fall.
A black bra peering out behind the back of the sheer blouse provided oomph to an otherwise covered up look.
And the night was so much fun!
Margs, beers, and food at Baja Bean
Hurricanes (what else?) at the Virginian. If you’ve been looking for a good recipe to make hurricanes, here’s a good one (we had to look it up for the bartender because he didn’t know how to make one!). If having one with 151 freaks you out a bit, you can ask to substitute Southern Comfort (which is what we did). A hurricane is kind of like Sex on the Beach: there are many different ways to make them.
If you’re in to the sheer trend, like I am, here are some other options:
Another blouse from Sugar Lips: Front and Back Button Down ($45)
Patterson J. Kincaid Lilly Sheer Chiffon Blouse via Neiman Marcus ($138)
Ark & Co Beaded Collar Sheer Blouse via South Moon Under ($69.75). This blouse with sheer arms is a good option if you don’t want a blouse that is entirely sheer (mine only had a sheer back).
Dappled Shadows Sleeveless Top via ModCloth ($37.99)
