Meanwhile, in other things I am currently coveting but cannot afford, let’s talk about this ‘Lauren’ lace top from Curriculum Vitae (a brand I only just now discovered, by the way, because I am not cool).



While summer is definitely over, I don’t think the lingerie-as-outerwear look has to go out of style. And though this piece is technically for the boudoir, I really want to throw it over a longline, strapless microfiber bra and pair of cropped slacks (Does that even go together? I’m not a fashionista.) and pretend to be in my mid-twenties again while sipping white wine downtown. Yes, I know that’s a very specific daydream, but please just indulge me.

What I most love about this top is that amazing paisley lace pattern. After visiting Interfiliere last year, I’ve been slightly obsessed with fabrics and textiles. A gorgeous lace just makes me feel all tingly inside, and the uniqueness of this pattern (combined with the width of it and the conspicuousness of it and the outright luxuriousness of it) just pushes all the right buttons. If I’m going to spend $345 on a top (yes, that’s the price of the ‘Lauren’), I want it to be something that I don’t see anywhere else. And this fits the bill.

Of course, this lace shell is trimmed in silk. It’s also made in the USA. Sizing is XS thru L with Large fitting a maximum 12-14 US. If your size is sold out at Journelle (entirely possible since this item seems to be popular), you can also buy it directly Curriculum Vitae here. While I’m hoping I can grab this at the end of the season, I’m also not holding my breath. I wouldn’t blame anyone who can afford it for picking this little bit of lingerie magic up right now.

Have any of you heard of Curriculum Vitae? What do think of their aesthetic?

    I saw a romper by the same brand on Journelle’s website. The lace on the top is amazing but something about the romper drew my eye more.

  2. Thank you for introducing this brand to me! I guess I was not on the “cool” tip either haha. Wow, this brand is truly creating something original. Can’t wait to keep my eye on them! Thanks again. xo

    I would totally have thought that was ID Sarrieri if you hadn’t named the brand. Stunning lace!
