I've been wanting to get in on this Realisation Par action since seeing the brand launch many moons ago. For what feels like forever, I've had a strong girl crush on Alexandra Spencer, Realisation Par's Creative Director. Obviously, we now know (as expected) that Realisation Par has blown up and become a go-to brand for every cool girl on the block (lol can I now be included in that, please?) Honestly, the only reason it's taken me so long to finally crack down and make a purchase is that I have loved every piece so much that I could never actually narrow down and decide. So here we have it, I went with the Bianca top in red star print, and I love it. But I will say, the only trouble I have had with this top is that I way overshot the sizing. I was wary to its being 100% silk crepe, therefore not having any stretch, and so I sized up. Granted, I should have looked more closely into the sizing chart that Realisation Par provides (hello, that's what it's there for, Hannah). So yes, anyway, the top is a bit larger than I'd prefer, and there's way too much fabric to tie it up in the front in the same way the brand styles it, so I wrap it all the way around and tie it in the back, which I also really like. I paired the top with a suede midi skirt I picked up at a vintage store while in New York this past spring. I'm really excited for this skirt when it gets a bit cooler out to pair with knee boots and chunky fishermen sweaters. That cool fall weather will be here before we know it (or maybe I just keep telling myself this because I'm really tired of sweating).
