Beam







TOP & SHORTS : H&M
SHOES: ZARA
CUFFS: VINTAGE
NAILS: CHANEL'S PERIDOT


I love the gold threads in (what I call) tweed-going-brocade fabric of these high waisted shorts. I have never owned a pair of shorts this glitzy. For Saturday evening I paired them with this black embroidered and beaded chiffon top -which, as you can see, is also pretty dynamic. Needless to say I did not need to add much else - the ensemble just beamed on its own. I think these shorts would also look great with a white or cream colored silk shirt. I know I am going to get good use out of these pieces - love them both together and individually.

  25. Beautiful, beautiful detailing of the shorts! You're right, that spun gold threading is a lovely accent. I also really like how sheer your top is (the shorts shine through the fabric brilliantly).
