Totally obsessed with lace at the moment and this new outfit post is a re-creation of some older items I had in my wardrobe to create this all lace look. I'm not one for venturing back into an older wardrobe of mine for my night time glam inspiration.. but seeing as it's so close to Christmas and all money is going on presents, I needed to do some recycling once and for all.

 I wanted a real salutary look, therefore I felt lace was the only option. I used a classic lace, spider web style Topshop maxi dress which I have had for around 3-4 years, this garment never dates and you can wear it in absolutely any season. Then I purchased a gorgeous lace, high collared crop top, also from Topshop about a month ago, so as I began to sieve through my clothes, I hand picked all the garments that fit my chosen criteria... BLACK and LACE!

I decided to go with both garments, the long black, no sleeved maxi dress, with the small lace crop top over the top. I needed a sexy garment underneath which would hide my body as the lace maxi is completely see through. I was also inspired by Rihanna's new look on XFactor last week, with the use of a black dress, leaving all her body and skin on show amongst the patterns and the fabric. It is classy but also extremely revealing. I chose to wear a small bra leotard underneath from Primark, revealing more emphasis on my legs over anything else. I could have gone with a bigger garment that covered more of my body, but this felt right at the time.

I am not one for showing assets, as I can't name any for you, but nevertheless my bum was fairly on display and it seemed to fit perfectly with the elegance and mystery of the outfit. I had been dying to wear my new black bowler hat and this was the time to complete the look throughout from head to toe with darkness. My hat is from H&M, a purchase featured in a previous post... www.velvetwriter.com/2012/11/h-hats.html

It has been long overdue me getting myself a plain black bowler, if you managed to catch my post on New Winter Hats, then you will see that I went through some great research before choosing the perfect one. This hat fitted the ensemble perfectly, along with some simple touches, like black nail varnish, a few Topshop rings and some leopard vintage boots.

Really hoped you enjoyed the lace overload. Please let me know what you think and what items you will be re-creating this Christmas to save money?
