Altho I'm not yet seeing it that much on the street, I am so ready to wear nudes (the whole range, from ballet pink thru to beige). I was wearing it in Miami, of course, and I'm wearing it here, too: just not seeing it that much, apart from popping out like the first snowdrops in early spring, in the form of wisps of skirts peeking out under coats. It's still too dark & cold to do the bare legs, but we can get an edge with leggings & tights.
This is one of the rare shots on my blog not by me: I got it from Topshop's look book. I don't work for Topshop, btw: I don't work for anyone. I 'promote' - i.e., gush about - whatever I feel like at any given time. Just read an interesting, thought provoking piece (& comments) on the Business of Fashion, re: the whole Tavi thing (or Bowgate, or even Babygate, as I've heard it called). *
For example: I've just seen an inside scoop on Richard Nicholl's S/S 2010 eight piece collection - his 5th collaboration with Topshop. Now what am I to do: I happen to love everything, because it's all in shades of nude/pink with a lot of underwear-as-outerwear themes at play. At 65 quid, I'd snap this denim stripe two piece zip 'dress' (bustier, aka bandeau, & skirt), in a heartbeat.
No one is offering me a sample, or even a discount. And yet, I can't help but spread the word, because I love it. To me, the whole point of having little bosoms is that I can get away with stuff like this.
*(Just discovered, TAVI HERSELF has just done a brilliant post on the subject, addressing the BoF article/post.
I'm curious: what do you think: can you be bought? And if so, at what price?
