An early birthday present: Etoile Isabel Marant Rosalie lace top
New in and a teeny bit early for my birthday, but it's close enough! The Etoile Isabel Marant 'Rosalie' stretch lace top. Yippee.....
I'd been eyeing off the ethereal floaty yet boxy cut lace tops from the runway of Isabel Marant for some time, but was after something a little closer cut to the body and a less pricey than the ones from the ready to wear collection. Although they are striking, my spending does have a limit and I had to factor in what I had in my wardrobe to compliment the top. That's when I came across this top from the Etoile range.
At approximately 65% of the price when compared to the runway model, this was definitely a more affordable option. I was particularly attracted to the cuteness of the singlet cut with the deep armholes and the fact it was a little less sheer. It's so much softer than I imagined and comes off rather edgy, yet breezy and very cool, perfect for the summer. I’m loving the hint of romance to the vintage styled fabric, the variation of pattern in the lace, the scalloped and raw edged hemline, and the little knotted edges around the scooped neckline and arms. This top has definitely surpassed even my expectations which I believe I set high so that says a lot!
For the number of ladies I personally know that are considering purchasing this top, here are some detailed shots especially for you. I hope they help you decide.
