Yes, I know my bra is showing

Posted on October 22 2008

As any of my friends can tell you, I am a sucker for silk blouses. They dominate my wardrobe, often to the detriment of other apparel categories - I have far more tops than corresponding bottoms. It's almost a compulsion at this point, since I will never be able to wear them all, but when I see one that is well made, particularly if it has some handworked detail like cutwork, pintucks, pleats or embroidery, I just have to buy it. My most recent indulgence was a beautiful beige silk chiffon number by Allison Covington, who just opened Amai Unmei on NW Johnson and 23rd street. (For those of you who aren't familiar with the city, that is in the sleek Nob Hill neighborhood just over the river.) Fortunately, it serves a vital purpose in my wardrobe - showcasing my lingerie collection - so I've already managed to wear it out! It's a simple design with cap sleeves, a jewel neck and a pretty sash that ties at the side. I wore it over my La Perla black silk merrywidow with ecru lace, paired with a calf-length vintage pleated skirt and black silk knit thigh highs. I love the subtlety of wearing a modest, long-ish skirt with an elegant, sheer top so the whole effect isn't too over-the-top sexy. I highly recommend this blouse if you have a special undergarment you want to show off like the Araks Petra Cami or the VPL B-Fractional Bra.
