In Anthropologie's Winter collection (I think it was winter), Odille had the cutest little blouse out called the Winged Victory top. It was insanely popular and sold out very quickly. I am not a strapless sort of girl - I tend to stay away from them due to all the logistics involved (if you know what I mean) ... but, on a complete whim, I tried on the Winged Victory top and as soon as I did, I knew I had to have it - it went home with me that night!
I love the pop of green against the black, and the architectural detailing at the top of the blouse is just gorgeous and incredibly flattering. Its also a really secure feeling top so I felt comfortable enough buying this.
I know a lot of people missed out on this top the first time around, which is why I knew I had to post about it as soon as I noticed that Odille came out with a polka-dotted spin on the Winged Victory top with the Blacklight Blouse.
How darling are those polka dots? With the same pleating at the top, and the black, and, and, the pop of green in the pretty sash?!!! Available at at Anthropologie for $78. Several of the smaller sizes are sold out online, but don't forget to call Anthro's 800 number - they can track it down for you! (And tip... I notice my previous local Anthro store used to have many items that were sold out... you can always try there, its the Carmel, California location.)
Here I am in the Winged Victory top - I think this top runs big? I have it in a size 2 for reference. BTW, look at that sad little bow I made.... LOL. When I tried it on at Anthro, the sales girl tied it for me in this perfect little bow... that I can never seem to recreate!
I usually tie the bow to the side... notice the gorgeous bracelets, aka hair ties.. hey, I'm moving!
That's me with no makeup... told you I'm not shy about that!

And here I am wearing J. Crew's destroyed skinnies, which I can no longer find on the site. I love pairing a really girly, feminine top with the destroyed jeans... I'm predictable like that;)
I love this top for a weekend night out, or date night, or... or... lots of things. Its just so pretty! I also think it would look gorgeous paired with a pencil skirt and heels.
