It was my birthday last month and and I wore this underwear inspired lacy camisole top with a matching co-ordinate skirt from Bershka to dinner. I am very late to follow these fashion trends 2014 – Underwear as Outerwear and Matching Co-ordinates. First because I never found something I really liked that was less lacy or just because I am a dim-wit when it comes to trends!! I saw ladies wearing something lacy under a blazer in the office or a camy dress teamed with sneakers and a jacket on the street and admired their stylish details. They looked so effortlessly chic. So I had to cave in eventually!! But there is a fine line to do that. With this trend less is definitely more. I love this top because it is subtle and appropriate to wear out and doesn’t look as if I have just stumbled out of my bed!! Also I love this matching skirt to wear with it or sometimes on its own too!! This saves so much time and overall I don’t have to exert myself!! Have you guys tried these trends??
P.S. I had dinner at The Cosmopolitan Grill and Bar on the 9th floor of Grand Front Osaka in Umeda (for the second time, read all about my first visit here). It’s a modern and fancy restaurant with huge windows which offer great views of downtown Osaka. They have an elaborate wine and cocktails list. We had their foie-gras, lamb chops and steak. Portion sizes are huge and the steak was to die for!! Although I can’t say that about the lamb!! Expensive place but ideal for celebrating any occasion!!
