Ramy Brook Top / CH by Carolina Herrera Pants (similar here) / M2Mattelier ‘Fabricca’ Leather Clutch

Another post of some of my classic go-to pieces; red lipstick, winged eyeliner, white wide-leg pants, a backless evening top and a LBB. I’m not sure if the abbreviation LBB (little black bag) exists just yet, but given black accessories are just as timeless as the must-have LBD (little black dress) I feel it deserves its own.

I’ve actually had this bag for the past 6 months but I’ve barely used it. It arrived slightly scratched, so I mentally disregarded it when dressing myself as I planned to return it. So in other words, life got in the way and I completely forgot to exchange it – surely I’m not the only one who does this? The amount of pieces I’ve meant to return but the whole exchanging and returning process seems to be more of a choir than vacuuming these days.

As for the top, I’ve always loved anything backless but felt a little paranoid at events when peoples eyes were drifting downward if I wasn’t wearing a bra. It seems after finding these it’s changed everything. Now go forth and buy backless and braless tops confidently…
