Hi, Everyone. This month’s Five Over Fifty challenge is lace. Who doesn’t love lace? Some might say it’s a bit scratchy for their skin and some may think it’s just too feminine and flouncy. I’m a big fan of lace myself, and I have a few items in my wardrobe.
I’m styling my lace with a masculine/feminine vibe
Now. Before you all start thinking what a floosie I am, let me tell you that I am actually wearing something under this lace body! I’m wearing my Shapeez body bra that’s nude in colour. It’s an absolute godsend for wearing items like this and if you’re interested in reading more about this fantastic item you can read about it here
I decided to use this lace body to wear for the challenge and pair it with this new cream blazer. I will tell more about that in a later post. Black trousers, although I did originally have Cream in mind but the two creams just didn’t match. I feel like a bit of James Bond fan, but I do like the masculine/feminine vibe that goes along with the look.
The accessories that I’ve paired the outfit with are a black clutch and this Chanel look a like necklace that I found in a charity shop years ago. I normally steer well clear of Black, a colour that no longer pairs well with me, but the cream Blazer lends a helping hand softening the look.
Anyway, that’s enough from me. Let’s see what the rest of our group are wearing for the challenge.
A big welcome to our new member. Hilda.
