Beach Bliss

Wearing: Backstage sheer stripe dress, Christie Nicole suede bralette (on sale, $35), Victoria's Secret bikini bottom, Alannah Hill suede hat

Sometimes you're just after a simple dress to throw on over your bikini on the way down to the beach, and this one from Backstage is absolutely perfect. Made of a sheer mesh fabric with alternating stripes, it's a great midi shape (the length in some way compensates for the sheer-ness of the dress); and works just as well with a white high-waisted brief and bra set underneath for a risque look to a fashion-forward event.
Originally the dress did have an inner-lining attached, but I removed it for this post and think I love the dress even more without it - it is so on-trend with the current sheer styles circulating the fashion scene.
