A Sequinned Rendez-Vous - Wildfox Ballroom Cardigan and Luxury Legs Layering!

Monday 19 August 2013

So maybe I bought my dream Wildfox this week *whistles innocently*, the Ballroom Cardigan that I wrote about a few weeks ago! As a stroke of luck, it just so happens that the Rendez-Vous Paris vest I was recently sent by legwear, shapewear and layering store Luxury Legs, is the perfect under layer for such a glitzy cover up, so I set to wearing them both in a weekend outfit :)

The vest is a super soft and stretchy stone coloured modal fabric and it's fast becoming my fave neutral layering piece. It's so stretchy that you can actually step into it and pull it up yet it will still keep it's shape all day long, and it's longline too so it's ideal for wearing under sheer slips or white broderie anglaise dresses for extra confidence. £29.50 might sound a lot for a plain neutral vest but trust me, you'll get it back and then some in terms of pounds per wear. Good quality layers are definitely worth paying that little bit more for because you will soon find yourself washing them over and over again as they become a wardrobe staple, especially in the colder months! I think I've gone through about 5 or 6 cheaper vests (I usually buy from H&M and they're less than a fiver) this year so far. You tell yourself that it's cheap and it doesn't matter but in terms of quality and value, it kind of does matter in the long run!

Anyhoo, to the outfit! . . .

I was adamant that I wasn't saving this cardigan for 'best', despite the cost and obvious glamour, so I paired it with my oldest jeans, a neutral vest and white pumps for a shopping trip this weekend, a pretty bold move for it's first outing!

The vest does a perfect job of neutralising the sequins without taking away any of their sparkle (I think that makes sense!) which is exactly what you need from a good base layer. 

I think the choker is actually a wrap bracelet but while it fits my neck that's where it will be because I'm loving the brown leather and gold studs! The belt says 'WHENDOVESCRY'. It's from AQ/AQ (formerly known as Aqua) and as a huge Prince fan obviously I had to have it as soon as I saw it! I think it fierces up the whole look :)

I really love this outfit, my only problem now is that I want both the cardigan and the vest in the other available colours! I honestly despair at my own very expensive taste. TUT!
