Petals and PVC

Black lace top and white pencil skirt (7)

When  I was younger I wore some questionable clothes. I thought being sexy meant wearing something barely covering my butt and something plunging and busty. Usually these kind of outfits came in some tacky material that scream cheap- price and integrity. 

Thankfully I'd like to think I've grown up a little bit. These days I'm all about channelling sophisticated sexiness. I like to think I have a bit of class now, but still with a ooh la la edge. 

Never boring, never safe, but never tarty.

I believe compromise is key. A knee length skirt, instead of a butt grazer, but a knee length skirt in leather or PVC says more about your naughty side than any flash of your bum could. 

Flashing the flesh is ok when done to limits. This top technically shows off all of my top half, but the dark mesh and innocent petal appliqués tone it down.

Add a classic bag, some edgy details and your a sexy lady, not a tramp.

Petal Sweatshirt - Flying Wardrobe
PVC Skirt - River Island
Heels- Zara
Bag- Zara
Watch- Michael Kors

I have to talk a little about this sweatshirt though. I have received so many compliments over it and it was such a random purchase. See here is a great little story about the power of bloggers. I stumbled across the woman's blog, fell in love with not only the top but also her- she is literally the most gorgeous creature on the planet- and instantly bought the top because of her. Bloggers sell. I mean who had casually heard of flying wardrobe before? Maybe not. But now you have. 

Anyway her name is Nada Adelle- go check her out, she is to die for!

On a separate note, what do you think of my hair? I've had a sort of blondy/strawberry blond dip dye done. I wasn't too sure with the finished result before, but it's growing on me. Let me now what you think.

Tick tock guys, times running out to decide how you want to show your sexy side off. Personally I think a bit of PVC is never a bad thing...
