Ello lovies! Happy almost new month, golly gumdrops August sped by fast didn’t it? However, I’m so excited that we are almost officially out of pre-fall collections & onto the good stuff…Fall! The vendors at the luxury brand I run my business through have been showcasing looks with heavier materials guaranteed to keep us cozy yet stylish during these winter months…
During my summer holidaze we saw so many amazing street styles that we attempted to take pics of however, I was informed that a release form is needed so that went out the window!! I’ll just have to rely on the kindness of my friends! Anywhoo I noticed a lot of lace-up tie detailing in downtown San Francisco from pants, tops, swimwear & even accessories which ties into my next topic (like what I did there?)
This weeks blog is possibly one of my favorite pre-fall themes Lace- up! It’s so sexy & when I think of Lace detailing I think of the movie 50 Shades. Laces, ribbons & drawstring details have been all the rage dangling in the front & at the back of tops, on side seams of trousers giving attitude whilst looking undone & sexy AF! I myself invested in some body suits with that detailing! Brands such as Dion Lee, Philip Lim, ALC, Jonathon Simkhai & Scripted have been showcasing this on their resort 2017 runway collections. Here’s how I would style it!
This dress is brilliant for my petit ladies, great to cinch with a belt to accentuate that waist or leave as is, this Bohemian badarse gorgeous bell sleeve minidress by Kendall & Kylie at $225.00 is such a steal! I paired it with a Topshop straight brim double trim fedora $52.00, Orion studded cross body bag also from Topshop $55.00 & lastly Prada Vitello lace up booties $1100.00 in dark red. Yasss!
For my curvaceous ladies, I went with a more casual look by Iro, this Alety lace-up long -sleeve top in Ivory $285.00, A.L.C Kingsley high-waist lace-up pants (to give you that seamless look) $395.00 & for a pop of color this Holographic cross body bag by skinny dip is insane at $60.00. Obsessed! Lastly I teamed it with lace-up platform metallic Brunello Cuccinelli Trainer sneakers $1495.00 (the dream!)
My last look I went with this flirty lace-up back Alba Linen Tee from A.L.C, $175.00 (that back detailing is EVERYTHING!) this laced with edge Hardwired lipstick from Nars (limited edition) $26.00 is so fierce. Flirty Milos lace-up suede miniskirt from Parker $398.00 with grommets, Lexi Leather cross body finish bag from Topshop $68.00 & lastly my favorite pop of color yells Gianvitto Rossi suede scrappy lace-up Sandals $995.00. There you have it Loves, Lace on Lace on Lace! lol
This is such a fun trend & one I would reccomend for any & all body types! For my Diabectic users as long as your weary of your tubing from your pump (Medtronic users) & strategically place it away from the hanging lace detailing (entanglements suck) you should be good!
Catch you next week Wednesday lovies for more fashion tips & inspiration!
Cheers & Best Wishes,
