Leather and lace

3 Oct

I think the best way to wear leather is with lace, and vice versa. I love pairing opposite extremes — dainty and tough… girly things with masculine pieces.

It’s been a while since I’ve done an “inspiration post”, but today I’m feeling inspired. Blake and I have a lovely little apartment, but lately things have been falling apart. A burnt out light here, a hole in the wall there – you know how it goes.

We spent the entire day doing home improvement, and I’m feeling so much better! We even bought a new rug and a dresser. Can you believe I didn’t have a dresser?

I wish I could make our house more girly – kind of like these photos – but, well, it’s all about compromise! I think a little bit of both of us shows through in the way our place is decorated… probably the way it should be. Girly things with masculine pieces. At least Blake has good taste for a dude!

OK, closet cleanout time! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. <3

    I just wrote a whole post on mixing fierce and feminine pieces – I agree that it’s the most beautiful! Leather and lace is my favorite fashion contradiction.

    The first and last picture are so beautiful.

    Home improvement, eh? Oddly enough, that sounds like fun. I havent owned a dresser in years. When I did have one it stayed empty. Weird right?

    I wore leather and lace together just a few weeks ago. I’m usually partial to pairing lace with cashmere and chiffon and making it super girly, but leather is such an excellent contrast I couldn’t resist.

    Your last photo is gorgeous, BTW!
