In all my recent shopping runs somehow I've subconsciously collected an arsenal of see-through crochet with not the slightest idea of how to conventionally wear it. I guess the next order of business is to own a homologous amount of neutral slips and frilly bras. Until then, I'll just admire them as forced interior garments hung "effortlessly" around my room.

A tip for shopping for crochet in vintage stops, just look your favorite cut-out embroidery detail; the matronly slip underneath can be easily removed with a little force and scissors. My take on DIY I suppose because I'm sure there's a better way around it.

  6. great finds!

  7. Love this so cute!


  8. Love the crochet vest, it looks really pretty and wearable :)

  9. Nice crochet indeed! Love them, especially the 1st one.:)

  10. That beige vintage one is amazing.
    I, too, have still got to buy a nude slip to wear underneath my transparent and hole-y blouses.
    I'd just rather invest my money in more blouses than in a silly slip, though :(

  11. great buys, so loving crochet now

  12. I adore the first one!

  13. i love the second sweater - kind of like a tea cozy...but with a pair of jeans, immediately wearable and relaxed.

  14. Beautful!
    And I have the same "problem", I also buy those pretty lacy things, but then can't figure out the best way to wear them... Anyway, they look just as pretty as wall adornings! :)

  15. oooh!!! love them!

  16. gorgeous! they look good as decoration as well :)

  17. Nice collection! I love the chain detail on the vest.

  18. The crochet pieces are very lovely, I like your DIY idea. Can't wait to see you transition them from decor pieces to beautiful outfit posts.
    much love.

  19. i really love see though tops but i find them hard to wear as well... what ive been doing is wearing a bra as close to my skin tone as possible, that way i have kind of a blank canvas but theres no nipple showing or anything.

  20. I love them, especially the white one in the last pic! I have a similar one, don't know how to wear it though... Looking forward to see how you put them in an outfit!


  21. I love the seethrough. great pics. so many beautiful details

  25. I was surprised to find that my favorites were the vintage pieces! Amazing that sometimes the most unique and versatile pieces are not from designers, but hand-me-downs of sorts.

  32. loving crochet for summer! great blog!

  33. That's lovely. I like the style of those pieces.

  34. My mom makes the cutest wrap sweaters from old crochet tops: I saw Topshop has some with the same idea as well. Otherwise I think you're right about the neutral slips, although for a really 60's vibe you could toss them over a bright bikini in the summertime too.


  35. Love your blog. Amazing crochet pieces!
