What I bought at The Vintage Fair

I told you in my 'Vintage Fair' post that I had made a sneaky vintage purchase, and that all would be revealed in another post. Well, this is that post. Did you guess by the mysterious title? Elusive! I paid just £14 for this gorgeous, cream, lace and pearl embroidered bustier. The label on the inside states the item is from a store called 'Fashion Fantasy' which extensive googling returned few results on, sadly. Regardless, I loved this item as soon as I clapped eyes on it. Its exquisitely made, all the detail hand stitched on. I can't wait to wear it.

Vintage Bralet from Vintage Fair, Nail Polish: Ciate's Glass Slippers
The one issue I have with this bralet is how to style it. I'm not completely confident yet as I'e never styled a piece like this before and I know its so bold, I could get it very very wrong. Of course, I consulted Lookbook for inspiration. Below are some ideas of how I may wear it in the future, with a link to the lovely creators Lookbook, obviously!

Look One: With a long black, pleated skirt? Teamed with a belt to hold the skirt over the exposed part of my midrift?

Look Two: With a white or black shirt (perhaps sheer for nights out) tied at the bottom, just revealing the bralet, yet keeping my shoulders covered.

Look Three: Oh my how I would LOVE to pair my little bralet with a tulle skirt and feel like a Fairy Princess Ballerina (yes, all three at once). I would pirouette and wear pretty nude heels and spin around on my tip toes.
