bustier gets a boost

Eyelet cardigan - BCBG Max Azria; Floral bustier & lace skirt - American Rag; Vintage belt; Urban Outfitters boots

First of all, thank you guys for the lovely comments on my last post! I'll definitely feature more clothing I've designed in future posts.
While combing through the racks of Goodwill, I found this gorgeous BCBG Max Azria eyelet cardigan -- with the tags still attached. I can't imagine why the previous owner would want to give up such a beautiful piece! Nevertheless, trust me, I'm not complaining. I love the oversize buttons and the light, slinky feel of this cardi, making it the perfect summer cover-up for breezier days yet I can see myself using it well into the winter (Hawaii winters are extremely mild, mind you). Moreover, the camel color is absolutely divine. I've been searching for an outerwear piece of this colored nature; much to my delight, I've found it. Its only flaw is a small hole in the front but luckily the overall eyelet design somewhat masks it.
So into bustiers right now. This lovely floral piece may be my first, but definitely will not be my last. With their unmistakable versatility, consider me hooked.
