New designer alert. Or at least newish to me. Vivian Chan. I am obsessed. I first wore one of her designs here, which garnered a heap of Instagram likes (probably due to the strategically placed sheer panels). As much as I like that dress, I think I love this outfit even more. I am a huge fan of sheer little bits of peek-a-boo and Vivian seems to be a master at this. Not only does the mock turtleneck have a degree of transparency, this sheer skirt is…wait for it…actually a skort! How great is that? Skorts remind me of my school girl days when we would wear little shorts under our plaid skirts. Well, consider this the elevated, grown-up version. All of Vivian’s designs have elements of surprise like this Rosie skort. I highly suggest you check her out and scoop up some pieces of your own before she blows up. Which I guarantee she will. Because it’s so much cooler to say that you’ve been wearing her designs since forever as opposed to jumping on the bandwagon down the line. Consider this your insider tip. Take advantage.
P.S. Two more reasons to love Vivian Chan? She’s an LA designer and every order comes with a handwritten thank you note. Local and classy. Love her.
