Years ago, I borrowed my mom’s gorgeous traditional Portuguese embroidered vest from her closet. It was chic, bohemian, and super cool for its old time traditional flavor. Recently, I spotted this lacy embroidered crop top and it reminded me of that very vest from long ago. In fact, I totally feel like I’m channeling her seasoned taste and European heritage when I wear this piece. And what better time to wear it than festival season? Who’s going to Coachella? I’m not sure what spells music and desert air more than lace, cold shoulder and cropped. Don’t forget to stock up on extra long white jeans (because I almost always stain them), and round sunnies. Countdown to desert air and endless tunes starts NOW.
