I went out for dim sum with some friends to catch up and wore this beautiful Kimchi Blue beaded top. I'm really lucky to have friends that really encourage me to embrace what I like even if it's a little more provocative than normal. I've always loved really feminine clothes, so lace, embellishments, and soft, flowing tops make up a lot of my closet now, especially for the summer. And by "I've always loved feminine clothing," I mean I refused to wear pants until I was in grade three. 

When I wear a sheer top, I almost always pair it with something with a high waist, and it'll make me look longer and leaner (I'm showing my stomach off, so long and lean is good). Sheer tops mean there are a lot more proportions I can play around with. What should the rise on my jeans be, do I roll up the ankles, bralette, bra, or balconette? Determining each of these determines how much skin will be showing, how long my legs will look, will I look casual or done up. This is why I love sheer so much, you can get so much more variety!
