  1. special this post.

    i hope you have time to come to my blog.

  2. Oh, it's divine! I would love to win this in a size AU8.

    I would style it with a silk maxi skirt - Scanlan & Theodore's royal blue or Lover's rose coloured one would be perfect....some K. Jacques Picon pul grey flats, or Marni mushroom leather sandals...and an Alexandra Blak cuff...

    Fingers crossed!! x

  3. Nice! I'm a us size 4. I'm all about skinny black jeans, so i'd wear it with them and a pair of flats is my email

  4. The image isn't working for me!

  5. Hi Chanelle,

    Sorry about that, all fixed now ;)

    AFG - please don't forget to include your email.


  6. size:
    AUS 8


    How would you style this top?:
    I like to contrast. Patterns with solids, textures with smothers surfaces, hard with soft and organic shapes with more geometric ones.

    So what I would pair this top is a flowy full length silk skirt, my glass geometric black opaque ring, paired with my translucent glass ball necklace. With my pair of geometric looking sandals.

  7. Thanks for another wonderful giveaway!!

    -I liked them on FB (StyleofSam)
    -I am a US4
    -I would wear this top with my leopard print skirt and booties or grey skinny jeans and a bright pump!

    xo, sam

  8. Ooh, sorry about that...My email is I have liked Maille on FB.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend! x

  9. That top is gorgeous!!!
    - I'm an AU 8
    - I'd style it similar to the photo, with a fitted maxi skirt, red ballet flats and a wide brimmed panama styled hat :)

  10. Great giveaway, and gorgeous top!

    I'm a size 10, and my email address is

    I would style it by tucking it into a black leather pencil skirt <3

  11. This blouse is so pretty! It would help me add a little more much-needed femininity to my wardrobe. Size AU8. I would style it loose with black leather pants and some d'Orsay heels.

    lost (at) xx

  12. i'd wear with some smart trousers, peep toe boots and a wool hat . . . every girl needs some lace in her wardrobe . . . thanks for the heads up brig! uk8 i am.

  13. I would add wide legged pinstriped trousers to add some juxtaposition to the femininity of the blouse or compliment it with a beautiful simple full skirt. A sequined bra to peek from under the blouse, Very high pumps & strut! ;) 4US

  14. Love the black lace top. I would wear it with leather shorts and high-tops.

  15. It is a wonderful top that would look so smart on. Depending on where I was going, if it is night time and out to impress business people black dress pants, with sexy heels, a jacket, wonderful jewellery to brink out the lace work of the top. Maybe having jewellery that has same or similar designs or textures. If it was a more casual day, jeans, or linen pants, red lippy, wonderful jewellery as discussed before, and nice sandals that accent the top and jewellery.

  16. I sent a comment about black pants, linen and depending on where you would be. I don't think I added my name or the size:

    Suzanne Robinson
    Size: Australian 14 but might be bigger.

  17. Liked :) I would team it with neon jeans - maybe turquoise or magenta? and Jeffrey Campbell Roscoe boots for some edge. I am a AUS 8. My email is

    My size is UK 14.

  19. This top is so feminine! I´d like to wear it with blue or red jeans everyday. And because it´s getting colder here, I´ll pull a oversize cardigan or fitted blazer over it. Adding a pair of patent leather heels will make this outfit look glam for sure!
    My size is UK 8/AU 10.

  21. you entered mine so i'm going to enter yours haha!! I'm a size AU14 and I would style this with straight leg jeans and matching anklets with strappy benah ryder sandals. perfect for summer! my email is


  22. I would style this with some bright red pants with a tapered leg, cut just above the ankle. And some black patent loafers, maybe heels for night time. An Australian size 12 would work for me.
