Leather & Lace

1.29.2013


Zara geo print dress, Barney's Originals leather jacket (on sale here), Calzedonia tights, Hue Over the Knee socks, Alexander Mcqueen box clutch, 
H and M necklace (last seen here), Pour la Victoire Allena boot (on sale here).


If there's one thing every girl needs, it's a great leather jacket. I've been on the hunt for a black, tailored one for the past few months, and when I saw this guy on sale at ASOS, I knew I had to try him on for size. (Don't you just LOVE free shipping and returns?!) I was drawn to the asymmetrical zipper and semi-distressed look of the leather, and only prayed that the size 4 (the smallest size they still had available) would fit.

Luckily the jacket runs small, because when it finally arrived on my doorstep it was perfect. I've pretty much been wearing it non-stop ever since.

Another thing I've been wearing nonstop? Knee highs over textured tights... because who says keeping warm has to be unstylish?

  3. I love the black stockings over the textured tights! I wore mine over white tights to contrast the color, but I like your way a lot too! And your jacket was an awesome catch!

  6. This look is perfect: I love the combo leather jacket and dress as it is a nice contrast of edgy and feminine style. Also the Pour La Victoire ankle boots are another great wardrobe staple. I have been looking for the perfect leather jacket for months and I finally found the perfect one courtesy of my parents who found one at a local market fair in Tuscany!

    It is such a pleasure to read your blog!

  12. If this doesn't say NYC then I need to have my head checked! The jacket is killer and loving the detailed accessories. I want to try an over the knee sock but haven't yet. not sure how I'll feel if I end up with knee fat hehe.

    Great choice with the aluminum background. Such a compliment to the look!

  27. "Shopping" for some is just a ritual whereas others look at it as an indulging and exciting experience and still, a few others tag it as a taxing and tiring activity. Your college going kids & single friends would always spring into action on the idea of shopping and with that big smile on their lips, say "Let's go shopping!" The same expressions take a 360 degree turn, as you get to the parenting age. Now, you and your spouse would rather be busy dropping your kids to school, working with them on their homework assignments. The responses to any shopping plans would rather be answered with a grimace or a grin with excuses like 'Let us plan for the weekend' or 'Hey honey, why don't you go ahead this time. I'll join some other time!' Does this not sound familiar to you? I know, it absolutely does! leather jacket for kids

  28. As fashion and plus size evolve into a recognized and (soon-to-be) respected segment in fashion, so do the idiosyncrasies and nuances of fashion itself, as it pertains to plus size. You see, ten years ago, plus size only belonged in one lump segment, leaving us fashionistas with very little or if any options for shopping and discerning which pieces were of a "fashionable" standard. 강남셔츠룸

There are many different types of jackets, designed to serve a variety of different needs. The most popular types of running jackets are waterproof, cold weather, and lightweight jackets, which may be worn to protect against different conditions and temperatures. joker purple jacket
