I have been lusting after Self-Portrait's cool, frilly looks since the summer, and after almost buying one of the brand's jumpsuits in October — sadly, my torso was too short and a weird FUPA thing kept happening — I have finally found a piece of it to call my own. This off-the-shoulder top not only satisfies my need for sheer lace panels and pretty lace, it's actually really easy to wear. No zippers, just an elastic band around the waist and drawstrings around the wrists. And you can wear it at a range of points on the shoulder, depending on where you want the waistline to fall — exciting news for me and my short torso. It's intricate enough to stand out at formal events with black slacks, but could just as easily work with denim shorts during the summer. 

Now all I need is a strapless bra...
