Sometimes you find something so special, you have to plan an entire outfit around it.
For those of you that know me, you know I am an avid online shopper. And thanks to my beloved iPhone, I can shop on the go–on the subway, in line for coffee, on the elliptical (yes…guilty!) With all that browsing, something has to be truly special to catch my eye, and this lace Rebecca Taylor top did just that. The details are impeccable–from the lace sleeves, to the silk trim, to the beautifully draped keyhole back… It was love at first sight.
With such a beautifully detailed top, I decided to keep things simple and (mostly) monochromatic with these figure flattering Club Monaco pants. With a pop of color by way of my hot pink heels and a hint of sparkle with a sophisticated cuff, this look was complete.
An all black look doesn’t have to be boring; it gives you room to play with your shoes and accessories. And for a bit of extra drama, a swipe of red lipstick does the trick.

I feel this top is timeless, that style would still look great five years from now. I would say this is a great purchase.
Thanks, Nicole! I couldn’t agree more 🙂
The styling with the pink shoes is so much cuter than how Club Monaco shows on their site, and I adore the top!
Thanks!! I didn’t get that boot pairing either! 🙂
That top is gorgeous. You created the perfect outfit around it!
Thank you, Kate!!
Christina, that top is AMAZING. We love how you paired it with the leopard and hot pink…perfection! <3 xoxo, erica & kelsey
Thank you so much, ladies! XO
Can I just ask how it runs and what size you got? Thanks!
Good morning! I find it to be true to size. I am usually a 2 or small on top, and the 2 fits great. Check out Nordstrom’s site. They have a fit predictor that worked well for me.
You will LOVE this top it is truly one of my favorites.
Thanks for reading!
