"How many of'em coulda did it with finesse? 
Now everybody like,'She really is the best!'" -Nicki Minaj

Creating easy wear tops with a high impact look has been a focus in StudioWM lately, and I am too hype about how this piece came out. I've been playing around with wrap tops in studio since last summer but have been wanting to expand on silhouettes. The first iteration came about when making a last minute look to wear to the Kemper Museum Gala. Like so many other pieces WM has created, I found this power mesh in a scrap stash and figured let's give it a go. Printing on power mesh was a process but I'm excited to manipulate the possibilities. The original design was meant for the top to be strictly worn Bardot style but I was playing around in the mirror and discovered the two in one option...oh the possibilities. Remember the twofer shirts from Limited Too? Yeah, this took me back...also gives me Britney, early 2000s draped chain halter vibes. I am a sucker for nostalgia.

How would you style this top for a night out? Let us know in the comments below or send your response via Twitter or Facebook! I'm dreaming these tops up in a few more colors and silhouette options, Watch this space for updates about when our new range of these tops will hit ShopWM online. 

I've been obsessed with Nicki's new single "Chun Li" (hence the above quote) and figured I would finally style my one of my pieces from her collab with a major retailer (side note: We won't name names because they have been losing their mind lately, but I made my purchases pre-scandal) 
I'm in love with this piece! I slipped into it and instantly felt luxurious, plus the back detailing is so on point. Who wouldn't want a money fan?! That has unicorns printed on the bills?! Embroidery on point, material/lining on point & length on point..which is super crucial for us girls in the 5'9 & up club.
