We all have that top.

It’s the garment, so avant garde, so unique that you equate to a priceless artifact that belongs in a museum. Well, for me I can’t help but feel this way about this corset top with a Hellenistic print on It, because it legit looks like Grecian pottery from ancient times—so shouldn’t it be in the British museum next to the Elgin Marbles, or something?

There was this one day B.C. (before COVID) where I posted a slideshow of me in this piece and the second photo of a Greek vase with the caption, “who wore it better?” I’d even be remiss to call it my hero item, because it also probably has demigods of Troy inscribed on it. So, a literal hero top.

When you put a top like this—like you would priceless pottery—on a pedestal, it’s easy to be reluctant to wear it, except on special occasions. You think that the top is too special, that wearing it in everyday life is too casual and will deplete its novelty. But that isn’t the case. A hero top should be celebrated, should be shown off. It’s all about finding unique ways to dawn it each time. And like most quality pieces in your closet, it can be dressed up or down.

Wide-leg high-waist jeans were the go-to pairing for this corset pottery top for a photo shoot with friends. Denim has a way of making a statement top like this one feel more down-to-earth and making the wearer look more girl-next-door. But let’s be real, I’m a girl next door, but my house is filled with an eclectic blend of historic items as well as shiny new pieces. It’s a place to feel inspired and feel at home at the same time. Don’t mind my extended metaphor. Mind you, the jeans had to be balanced out with ancient-inspired jewelry: a chain necklace with a golden coin and matching earrings (that are actually from a different jewelry brand) reminiscent of King Midas’ treasury.
