Happy Monday everyone!

Lace and Leather-1

Today’s blog title is brought to you by Mystery Man.

Me: Whatcha think? Lace and leather combo.
MM (Joey’s voice from Friends): L and L … Lace and leathea.
Me (chuckling): where do you come up with these things?
MM still in Joey’s voice): I’m just that good.
Me: Sure buddy. Sure.

And there you have it… L & L!  As you already know, I’m obsessed with lace, so you might see a few more lace pairings in the near future.  One thing about lace that intrigues me is its textural elements.  Naturally, it has patterns and print overlays that are soft and delicate.  I love playing with mood juxtapositions, so for this outfit, I paired the softness of lace with the toughness of leather while maintaining pattern similarities.  The snowflake-like patterns on the necklace matches the lace patterns of the top.  And the quilted details continue from the skirt to the jacket shoulders to the clutch.

 I wore this outfit to the Socialyte event last night.  We were nominated in the Best Video category, and although we didn’t win, I feel like a winner.  Having my dream job, standing next to my best friend who entertained me with Joey’s voice throughout the day, what more can I ask for.  Thank you so much Socialyte, Luisa via Roma, and Express for hosting the event.  We greatly appreciate your consideration and nomination!

I hope your week is off to a great start and thank you so much for reading!
