Say you have a holiday event or four to attend in the next few weeks. Say you want to look festive while stopping short of DEFCON2-level glitz. Say you don't want to spend a bunch of money on an item that will only be appropriate to wear between now and New Year's. Say you'd rather not have your party clothes out-bling your party jewelry. Say that even though there are definitely times that call for sequins, you'd like an option that's a bit more subtle. Say you want something, anything to wear for an evening out that isn't black.
Say at least two of the above statements apply to you. This is the top you are looking for. The satin charmeuse camisole underneath is a lovely emerald color, and the lace overlay is navy. Pair it with a pencil, full or maxi skirt, black or navy trousers, or even jeans. (It looks GREAT with dark wash jeans!!) Wear under a tuxedo jacket, or shrug or cardigan if the room is chilly. It's a very flattering cut and you can always swap out the camisole to change up the look. Yes, this one came home with me.
